Some medical studies have shown a link between the chemicals in antiperspirants commonly available at grocery stores and drugstores and breast cancer, according to the March 2003 article "Underarm Cosmetics and Breast Cancer" in the Journal of Applied Toxicology. This has raised concern for some people. They are choosing to make their own deodorant to avoid exposure to such chemicals. Liquid glycerine, which you can purchase at many natural health and beauty stores, has antibacterial properties. You can use it for a variety of skin care purposes, including as a roll-on deodorant.
