Sorry...I can't help you with this one. As far as I know there is no corn free deodorant.

I can't use the crystals either...not sure if the mineral salts have been treated somehow or if I just have super sensitive skin.

Here is the corn free list. Please be careful when trying these products because some people who have confirmed these products as being corn free may not be as sensitive as others.

There are a few deodorants listed here:

Yeah...I try to keep on top of this corny nightmare. Thank goodness for unscented neutrogena soap or I'd feel an awful lot like that smelly character in the peanuts cartoon...the little guy with the stinky cloud following him around...Pig Pen I think his name is...LOL

You do good to stay positive! :) Your's is not an easy allergy.

Have you seen these? It's so hard to know what's in a product.

Have you tried to wait 12 hours after shaving to put on the deoderant? I don't have very sensitive skin, but I used to be on prescription deoderant that really irritated my skin unless I shaved at night and put on the deoderant at night....hth - good luck!
