Deodorant which doesn't make black or white marks

So, Google tells me that the black marks on my clothes near my armpit are probably caused by deodorant with aluminium in it. And white marks on clothes are caused by deodorant too.

Does the Holy Grail of deoderant exist: one with no aluminium, which doesn't cause white marks? Do you use such a deodorant? I'm not very very sweaty, so don't necessarily need the most powerful deodorant, just fed up with white and/ or black marks in my clothes!

Any recommendations?

The dove invisible one

Thanks - does that one manage not to leave white OR black marks? Or just no white marks? The black marks seem to develop over time, rather than the white ones which just happen the day you put it on.

I've also never come across black marks but would recommend Dove Invisible for no white marks.

Deodorant won't be causing black marks ?

Well, some of my tops have dark marks in the armpit area, and Google told me it might be the aluminium in the deoderant, eg here. But it might just be a built up of sweat or something <ugh> - I don't actually have very smelly sweat, or sweat that much, so sometimes I wear a top for a day, it doesn't smell at all, and I wear it again and again and again. Maybe I just need to wash my tops more often and just use no-white-marks deoderant like Dove...
