Swiping on deodorants is a usual part of our morning routine. But perhaps, it is time you reconsider what type of deodorant you are using.
Deodorants aren’t dangerous in themselves, however, some deodorant types bring some bad news – especially aluminum-based antiperspirants.
Why is aluminum dangerous?
The use of aluminum-based deodorants and antiperspirants may cause higher aluminum levels in the breast structures, triggering unstable genes in breast tissues and promoting the growth of cancerous cells.
40,000 women in the US die from breast cancer every year. We cannot ignore the potential common factor among these women – aluminum-based antiperspirants.
Aluminum is also closely linked to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Research has found that aluminum can function as a neurotoxin by accumulating in the brain tissue, causing inflammation and cellular energy deficits, triggering brain degeneration symptoms that define dementia.
If it’s dangerous, why is aluminum in deodorants at all?
Somehow the media has convinced us that sweating is bad – when rather it is an essential body function. Sweating allows your body to lower your body temperature and release some toxins. Aluminum is added to deodorants and antiperspirants to stop this sweating process. When your product does this, your body can’t purge toxins and they stay trapped in your tissue and eventually travel into your lymph nodes and cause cell damage.
Why switch to aluminum-free deodorants?
Switching to aluminum-free deodorants protects your body from the dangers of commercial antiperspirants and helps keep your armpits healthy without going smelly.
Natural deodorants are safe
Read the labels and look for deodorants that contain only natural ingredients such as essential oils, hemp seed oil, coconut oil, or activated charcoal.
Aluminum-free deodorants cultivate your armpit’s natural biome
Your armpits have their own microbiome ecosystem that coexist peacefully. Aluminum-free deodorants do nothing to disrupt this and instead promotes the healthy balance and growth of good bacteria. This way you can sweat healthy and still smell fresh.
They save you money
Using natural, aluminum-free deodorants, you will only need 2-3 swipes per pit and you can already enjoy its benefits all day.
