Have you ever read the ingredient list on a deodorant or anti-perspirant ? Anti-perspirant ?!! Why would you do something like stopping the body from perspiring? Perspiring = getting rid of toxins. Getting rid of toxins is an important function of your body.
But perpiration leads to odor in many people due to several reasons, one being the growth of odor-causing bacteria. To avoid or mask this odor we use deodorants and anti-perspirants without knowing the bigger harm we are causing our body.
Conventional deodorants and anti-perspirants contain a cocktail of chemicals and additives. It really does take something really unnatural to block the body’s NATURAL ability, and NEED to sweat.
The chemical list in some deodorants :
- Aluminium - some evidence links aluminum to cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease
- Propylene glycol - common name is anti-freeze. It carries a moderate risk of allergies and immuno-toxicity.
- Phthalates - Endocrine disruptors that can cause hormone imbalance and even infertility
- Parabens - another hormone disruptor, used as preservatives.
- Formaldehyde - a known carcinogin
- Anti-bacterial additives
So what does this mean and why is it important ? The area around the armpits is where the lymph nodes are located, which are a major and very important part of your immune system. Putting endocrine disrupting chemicals directly on top of them is a very good way to mess up your hormones and suppress immune function.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and what touches your skin can easily enter your bloodstream. With incidents of auto-immune disease on the rise and other maladies, isn't it better to take a natural way forward with something so many of us use Everyday ?
