2 Reasons You Should Ditch The Conventional Deodorant and Opt For An All Natural Alternative
When it comes to deodorant, you may feel as if you don’t have a choice in the matter; you simply have to have it. This is completely understandable, because as human beings sweating is a natural part of everyday life, and some of us do deal with excessive sweat, in which case an antiperspirant becomes a staple in our daily life. You do, however, have a choice in the type of deodorant you use.
Before stocking up on another conventional speed stick, you may want to read this article. Behind those pleasant smelling deodorant sticks, lurk a host of unfavorable ingredients that can seriously impact your health over time.
Here’s 2 reasons you don’t need it, as well as a natural alternative to save the day!
They Contain Aluminum
Aluminum is a truly nasty ingredient that you never want to see on your skin care label. Aluminum is a key ingredient in conventional deodorants, thanks to its ability to prevent sweat from escaping through the pores. Not only is this unnatural, as sweating is your body’s way of releasing toxins, aluminum poses some serious risks to your health. Aluminum may increase your risk of Alzheimer’s, and has even been found in the breast tissue of biopsies taken from breast cancer patients. We don’t yet know if aluminum is the cause of some of these problems (further studies need to be done), but we prefer to be cautious when it comes to potentially harmful ingredients and our health.
Even “Aluminum Free” Deodorants May Contain Other Harmful Chemicals
Don’t be fooled by a deodorant with an “aluminum free” label slapped on it. Just because a conventional deodorant is free of one undesirable ingredient, does not mean it’s free of all of them.
Other concerning ingredients often seen on deodorant labels include parabens, triclosan and propylene glycol. These ingredients are possibly thought to increase your risk of cancer, disrupt your hormones and cause skin sensitivities.
