I was told some years ago of a anti-perspitant deodorant which was cheaper
and just as effective as Stingose, but that one had to be sure of getting
the correct formulation.  Not all versions of the particular brand had it.

On checking I find that what I was recommended to get is -

        Aluminium Zirconyl Hydroxychloride complex 20%

I make no claims for that vis a vis simple aluminium sulphate.  I merely
pass on what I was told.

Could it be that with stinging tree sting cures, it is, as the Goons used
to say, "all the mind, you know!"
