* An aluminum compound that also goes by the name Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly.


An anti-bacterial astringent that temporarily closes the pores and reduces the amount perspiration produced on the site of application. It also gets rid of unpleasant odors. Primarily used in deodorants and antiperspirants.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Many prefer Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex glycine over other types of aluminum salts because it’s much more tolerated by the skin and less likely to cause irritation. However, there are still toxicity concerns over airborne Aluminum compounds, which is why Europe has established tight restrictions over its use. The FDA, on the other hand, has reviewed the safety of this ingredient and approved it for use in OTC antiperspirant products.
