Almost all store-bought (non-organic/natural) deodorant has aluminum as a main ingredient. Natural stick deodorant is also more affordable than a deodorant with so many toxins.
I don't know of a 1 for 1 substitute for the butter, you could try increasing the beeswax and coconut oils to make up for the shea but I don't know what the consistency of the final product will be. I would experiment with small amounts to see the results before you waste a ton of ingredients.

Added bonus: I could use the baking soda that drifted down into the sink as a scouring mini-clean for the sink-bowl the next time I washed my hands.

We have been making our own deodorant for awhile and my husband just showed me that the underarms of one of his dress shirts is dark…like the oil is soaking into the material. I haven't found a plastic free packaging option at the shops, so homemade deodorant it is.
