Yes, it’s true: Sure Soft Solid and Sure Max are the same thing. Except the newer Sure Max has a whopping 20% of Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly (anhydrous) instead of the now discontinued Sore Soft Solid’s paltry 19%. Now, I’m no chemist, but more Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly to combat your offensive B.O. is a good thing in my book. Everything else appears to be identical. I’m not sure about the available scents, though. I never get the scents. In any case, this is all very good news.
