Natural Deodorant Makes a Difference!
Deodorants a full of potentially hazardous chemicals that can impact your health negatively. Yet we are bombarded with ads to by stronger versions of deodorants and antiperspirants. And Americans do. In our never-ending quest to stay fresh, we may be endangering our health in the long-term.
What are some of the toxic ingredients in deodorant and antiperspirants? Here’s five of the worst:
- Aluminum – linked to breast cancer in women in numerous studies as well as an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
- Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl and butyl) – derived from toluene, which is toxic if swallowed or inhaled and considered harmful when in contact with the skin. Yet it is one of the most common ingredients in deodorant and antiperspirants! Numerous studies have shown that parabens are hormone disruptors and act like estrogen, which feeds cancerous cells. Paraben exposure is also associated with birth defects and organ toxicity.
- Propylene glycol – a neurotoxin that may cause kidney or liver damage, as well as the central nervous system and heart. It may also cause delayed allergic reactions. In spite of this, it is one of the most common ingredients found in antiperspirants and deodorants because it creates smooth, slick consistencies and enhances skin penetration. It is also found increasingly in baked goods and processed foods because it keeps foods smooth and moist for long periods of time.
- Phthalates – increase birth defects, the likelihood of cell mutation, and act as hormone disruptors.
- Triclosan – officially classified as a pesticide by the FDA. Officially classified as a probable carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency, yet still included in many deodorant and antiperspirant formulations.
And these are just the worst. There are many more, such as talc, silica, steareth-n, artificial colors and dyes and more that are also extremely harmful.
But if the thought of “going natural” is unappealing to you, there’s good news…
You do not have to “go natural,” nor do you need to be held hostage to the manufacturers of toxic deodorants. You have a choice!
Instead of choosing deodorants and antiperspirant with harmful ingredients, you can choose products containing ingredients that will not only do a good job as a deodorant, but will benefit your health!
