Why I’ll Never Use Drugstore Deodorant Again (Plus The All Natural, Science-Backed Anti-Odorant Cream I Use Now)
Deodorant may not seem like a big deal, just one of the steps in your daily routine, but it’s actually one of the biggest ways toxins can build up in your body.
When you consider all of the assaults your body experiences in terms of toxins (pollution, processed food, drinking water, products, etc.), it’s vital to minimize your toxic load by making changes in the areas you have control over.
Let’s take a closer look at these chemicals that could be lurking in your drugstore deodorant:
- Parabens are preservatives that allow the product to last longer by preventing mold or bacteria growth, BUT have been very closely linked to endocrine disruption + breast cancer.
- Fragrance masks body odor + makes you smell slightly floral or shower fresh, BUT is a mixture of 3,000+ chemical ingredients and the cause of countless serious health issues.
- Aluminum blocks your pores to prevent sweat and keep you dry all day long, BUT studies have revealed its connection to detrimental diseases like Alzheimer’s and even death.
