Why Should You Use Natural Deodorant?
Why Should you even consider using a natural deodorant when there are hundreds of store bought deodorant options available? Why not just keep using an ordinary deodorant?
Here are just a few reasons why:
- Natural deodorants have ZERO nasty chemicals. It’s no surprise that store bought products contain harmful substances that are downright dangerous for your health! Take a long at the back of your store bought brand. Some of the unpronounceable ingredients are actually toxic and are known hormone disruptors.
- Store brands contain parabens. (e.g. isobutylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben) in the ingredients list. Although primarily used as preservatives meant to prevent growth of mold in your deodorant, parabens can be very harmful substances and have been shown to negatively affect the endocrine system and disrupt hormones.
- Store brands contain aluminum. Aluminum in deodorant could be linked to breast cancer. Aluminum in deodorants blocks sweat ducts to prevent sweating, a necessary process.
- Store brand deodorants contain triclosan. triclosan is a pesticide used as an antibacterial in store bought brands and has been shown to aggravate allergies and cause hormonal imbalances.
Why is this a big deal? Sweating is a natural process of cooling and detoxifying your body. And it’s an important feature of the body’s most unique organ: your skin. people are reluctant to ditch their favorite conventional deodorants. We understand the reasons people hang on to conventional deodorants and antiperspirants: we don’t want to look sweaty, smell stinky, or feel uncomfortably damp in our armpits.
Unfortunately, your deodorant, and particularly your antiperspirant, could be interfering with your body’s natural attempts to remove toxins and could potentially be causing long term health effects. More research needs to be done on this and until it has, we believe natural deodorants are a much better option.
