You have almost certainly heard of Old Spice deodorant. But if you use it, or know someone who does, then read closely, because you need to be aware of this warning.
While Old Spice promises to make you smell great, it has also had a series of incidents of negative side effects for the men wearing it recently.
This mom took to Facebook to complain when her 12-year-old son had a severe reaction to the deodorant…
And this isn’t the only case! Rodney Colley from Virginia went so far as to file a lawsuit against the Old Spice parent company Procter & Gamble following his experience with the deodorant which gave him intense pain and armpit rash. He hasn’t had any similar problems with other deodorant brands…
Other users have voiced similar complaints on the Old Spice facebook page, but the company didn’t respond to any of their customers for a long time.
When the company did finally release a statement, they claimed that “these side effects only happen to 0.01% of users due their sensitivity to alcohol, which is an ingredient in their deodorant.”
Regardless of whether this is the truth or avoiding a bigger problem, if you use Old Spice or know someone who does, share this so that other people have the heads up about these potential side effects!
