Secret Natural Mineral Deodorant in Lemongrass Mint—Secret's new stick hits both natural--using naturally derived calcium carbonate to help neutralize odors and minimize wetness--and high tech: It also contains body heat and moisture-activated capsules with Febreze's "smart technology" to zip odor away.
