There are many (40+) deodorant options linked in this post from black owned brands.  They are made with healthful and natural ingredients.  These include arrow root, burdock root, baking soda, coconut oil, magnesium oil, charcoal, aloe vera, Shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils.  Some of these deodorants are specifically designated for men

There have been concerns about the chemicals in deodorants and antiperspirants for over a decade.  Though alerts about the use of aluminum complexes (e.g., aluminum chlorohydrate and aluminum-zirconium), and the relationships to cancer and dementia have not panned out amid weak scientific evidence, the Federal Drug Administration has banned triclosan for use in anti-bacterial soaps.  Though triclosan may still be used in deodorants/antiperspirants.  Other concerns include the ill effects of parabens and phthalates in deodorants and antiperspirants, on health and the environment.  See the following company and product links below.
