Every morning across the world the majority of people are unknowingly slathering their underarms with toxins.
Conventional deodorants are loaded with chemicals which are toxic to the human body. Every day people are exposing their bodies to this toxic soup and with daily use these toxins are building up in them.
Some of the damaging chemicals are as follows:
- Aluminum – Many forms of this toxin are added to deodorants for the purpose of blocking pores to stop sweating. Aluminum is linked to issues in the body from liver, kidney and brain toxicity to interference with hormone functions. Studies show that the aluminum in deodorants is linked to tumor growth.
- Parabens – used as preservatives in many personal care products. The crazy thing is that parabens are one of the most harmful additives there is. Parabens are blamed for producing early puberty in children, are very toxic to our organs and increase the risk of breast and prostate cancer.
- Propylene Glycol – When combined with other chemicals it becomes very deadly. Most commercial deoderants have very high amounts of this stuff and it only takes a tiny amount to become very toxic to your precious body. When using this on a daily basis you expose yourself to damage of the liver, kidney and heart.
- Triclosan – This is an endocrine disruptor. This chemical accumulates in the body over time and studies show that it is showing up in urine, blood and even breast milk. Not only is it used in deoderant but also in hand sanitizers and antibacterial soaps. Yuk……
- Triethanolamine and Diethanolamine – these are both emulsifiers. They are banned in Europe as they are a known human carcinogen. Entering the skin they damage the liver and kidneys.
- Steareth-N – This is an emulsifying additive intended to weaken harsh chemicals. Through the process of ethoxylation carcinogen 4-dioxane is produced.
- Artificial coloring agents – derived from petroleum. These agents are plugging your pores and can cause severe allergic reactions.
Does this not BLOW YOUR MIND.
I cannot, for the life of me, understand why our government allows people to continuously poison themselves every morning.
There are so many natural deoderants on the market today that there is just no need to be using these toxic soups on our precious bodies. My deoderant is Dr. Mercola brand pictured above. It is herbal and vegan made from organic, non-toxic, non-GMO natural ingredients that are gentle on my body. I get the protection I need all day long from this natural deoderant. The essential oils in this deoderant are all I need to keep underarm odor at bay. Made from coconut oil, beeswax, arrowroot, baking soda, atlas cedar, Mediterranean cypress and clary sage, I feel confident and protected without exposing myself to harmful chemicals which wreak havoc on the body.
Please, stop using the commercial brands of deoderants and anti-persperants for the sake of your health and the health of your family.
