Almost everyone has a stick of deodorant in their bathroom, because let’s be honest, no one wants to smell like body odor. But what kind of deodorant do you use? A natural deodorant? Antiperspirant? Do you know what’s in the products you’re putting on your skin under your arms every day?
It’s so important to know the ingredients in your deodorant, because if it contains toxic ingredients it can put your health at risk. While deodorants help combat bad smelling arm pits by eliminating the bacteria that causes odor, antiperspirants prevent sweat by blocking your pores with aluminum. Most deodorants and antiperspirants on the market include aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates and triclosan. Did you know that an antiperspirant is considered an over-the-counter drug because it affects the physiology of your body?
The dangers of aluminum are very real. And by applying it to your underarms every day, you skin is absorbing any and every toxic chemical contained in your antiperspirant. The aluminum used in antiperspirants has not only been linked to causing breast cancer but also Alzheimer’s, bone disorders, kidney problems and prostate cancer. To top it all off, antiperspirants don’t even completely prevent you from sweating, it only reduces your sweat by around 30 percent.
Don’t forget: sweating is a natural and necessary body process! Using synthetic antiperspirants prevents this natural process thereby keeping toxins in your system by clogging your pores. One study showed that aluminum was still present in blood samples 15 days after one application of aluminum to the armpit!
By using a natural deodorant, you will still sweat but the deodorant will get rid of the odor that accompanies underarm sweating due to metabolized bacteria.
