Making the Switch to Natural Deodorant
DID YOU KNOW THAT SWEAT IS GOOD FOR YOU?
The purpose of sweating is to cool the body down and remove toxins. This natural detoxification process is super important in regulating our bodies, so we need to ensure that the deodorants we are using don't prevent it!
Aluminum antiperspirants are designed to block your sweat, which interferes with your body’s natural process to remove bacteria. They also contain nasty chemicals that are readily absorbed by your armpits and end up in your bloodstream!
THE NASTIES FOUND IN ANTIPERSPIRANTS:
Aluminum - Some studies have shown a connection to cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Parabens - Disrupt natural hormones and some studies have shown a connection to breast cancer.
Phthalates - Have been linked to asthma, ADHD, breast cancer, obesity, autism spectrum disorders, altered reproductive development, male fertility issues and many more problems.
Triclosan - A pesticide that can alter hormone regulation.
Alcohol - Dries out skin and can cause irritation.
THE BAD NEWS
Unfortunately using antiperspirants has made your body dependent on these chemicals to keep you stink free and it has forgotten how to manage bacteria on its own. This means that when you stop and switch to a natural deodorant, you might actually have smellier pits than ever for a short time while your body adjusts to naturally correcting the bacterial imbalance.
THE GOOD NEWS
The adjustment period will only last a few weeks and the extra smelly armpits will only be in the first couple of days. During this time, it’s important that you detox and get rid of the nasty buildup of bacteria. That’s why we provide you with a Detox Plan when you purchase our deodorant.
