Have you looked at the ingredients in your deodorant?
Aluminum is usually one of them. It just doesn’t seem right to put a toxic chemical onto our skin right close to our heart and lymph nodes. Am I the only one scared about that situation??
Glands help to release toxins. It’s good to sweat them out. But at this day and age, we dress and put clothes on which means we sweat into our clothes and it’s usually not a pretty picture.
Aluminum is what they put into deodorants to stop the perspiration. It plugs up the sweat ducts. But then where do all the toxins go that are supposed to be released?
Is Aluminum safe?
They say aluminum can be known to cause:
- Breast Cancer
- Kidney issues
- Bone disorders
The toxins are not able to be released and so they just float around in our bodies looking for the next place to leave. It’s scary to think that something we use pretty much EVERY DAY could causes these diseases. And for women, we put deodorant on freshly shaved skin. Yikes…
Let me tell you, I am a girl who, let’s just say, can sweat like the best of them! Even when I’m not working out. So I would always look for the deodorants that had the most anti-perspirant amount in them, which usually had the most Aluminum in them. I know it’s not good for you to put it on your armpits which is so close to your breasts and glands but it would be the only thing to keep me dry.
I have tried MANY natural deodorants over the years and just have not found any I liked. But low and behold I have found one I love! I found this at our local co-op store but I see they sell it on Amazon. The price is $10.95 and normally I would think that’s expensive, especially when I pay about $3 for deodorant. But it’s so worth it. My body and pits are much more in sync and happier! And it’s lasted me a couple months already because I don’t have to use very much. But this Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant. is awesome! It has NO ALUMINUM, NO PROPYLENE GLYCOL and NO ARTIFICIAL FRAGRANCE.
And you don’t need to put very much on. In fact, I find it works better when I just swipe a couple times. You have to put it next to your skin for a second to soften up a little bit and then swipe twice baby!
I hope you like it and it works as well for you too~
In happiness and health!
