Hi Stephen, it would take about a month to remove all deodorant ingredients from your skin. But you can see considerate microbiome differences after one week of no deodorant/antiperspirant usage. You can also try minimizing the washing, but soap is not as harsh than the conventional deodorant ingredients. It is worth the try. In the beginning it might be hard, but it may lead to a better microbiome afterwards. Best, Chris
