The Perks of Switching to a Natural Deodorant
Its not secret, we all need a little something extra to help keep us feeling our freshest. Especially when it comes to our underarm area, between shaving, waxing, going to the gym, and just always being on the go, this area takes on a lot. Deodorant is part of most of our daily rituals and its that little saviour that helps us feel clean before we head out the door in the morning. But have you ever wondered what goes into typical store bought deodorants? Do we really know what all of these ingredients on these labels mean and what are they really doing for our bodies? Don't sweat it, lets clear it up.
We have enough to worry about, we really don't need to be worrying about what's going on our armpits, so lets break it down. Typical store bought deodorants contain ingredients like Aluminum, Triclosan, Parabens and Synthetic Fragrances. Don't worry if you've barely heard of any of these things you're not alone. Most of these ingredients serve the purposes of keeping your armpits clean, smelling nice, and preserving the overall product. Which sound great, in theory, but do they really sound the safest for our skin? Aluminum is supposed to help you sweat less and paragons as well as Triclosan get rid of harmful bacteria, which sound like the perfect combination from a deodorant. However both of these ingredients have been found to cause defects in estrogen levels, contribute to chances of getting breast cancer, and causing overall damage to the surrounding tissue of the underarm. Synthetic fragrances give you all of those amazing scents that these commercial products can offer, but is it really that amazing? It makes you wonder what actually goes into making these wonderful-ish scents. According to the FDA there is enough chemicals in these synthetic ingredients to cause severe allergic reactions of the skin and respiratory system.
