Does corn starch have antiperspirant properties?

Can cornstarch be used as an effective underarm deodorant? The temps outside have been in the low 90s With similar humidity levels. My husband (76 ) does all of our yard work. I use cornstarch as an after shower dusting powder and never thought of using it as deodorant/anti-perspirant. We will appreciate your thoughts. Elizabeth and Lynn in 35126

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is the perspiration issue then it is better to use deodorant only and nothing can be used beside this, have frequent bath with deodorant soap, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
