While there may be many body powders that are much cheaper, this is one of the few that does not have baking soda and therefore does not give my husband a rash. He uses it mainly as a moisture absorber under his arms, but it's also effective between his legs to prevent chafing when he goes for long runs or hikes.
I also use it on top of my usual stick deodorant on days when I need extra moisture absorption and it's perfect. There's no fragrance, so it doesn't interfere with your perfume or lotion. And the texture is really silky and translucent.
Highly recommend for those folks that are sensitive to baking soda!
