We're trying to reduce (and ideally eliminate) the stains that our deodorant can leave behind on clothing. The INCI of the deodorant is below.
We've gone ahead and tested a few ingredients to see if they are the cause of the stain. We do this by eliminating Ingredient X from our INCI and making the entire deodorant, and then running some stain tests. Here's what we believe: the hydrogenated castor oil, shea butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder, jojoba esters, coconut oil, cera bellina and tocopherol aren't the main cause of the staining.
Despite all the claims online, I think it's the fractionated coconut oil (caprylic/capric triglyceride) that is causing the staining.
1. Does anyone have any experience with staining and FCO?
2. Are there any non-staining alternatives to FCO you recommend?
INCI: Caprylic/capric triglyceride, arrowroot powder, stearyl alcohol, baking soda, shea butter, coconut oil, hydrogenated castor oil, polyglycerol-3 beeswax, jojoba esters, tocopherol, L. acidophilus, dextrose, glyceryl caprylate, glyceryl undecylenate.
