Would you use a deodorant if it had this label on it? I would hope not! But did you know that if you currently use deodorant that is not all-natural, you are exposing your body to dangerous chemicals on a daily basis? I challenge you to Google the ingredients list found on your deodorant. I guarantee that the scary facts you learn about those ingredients will have you at least considering a switch to a much healthier alternative: all-natural deodorant.
Let me save you a little research time. Most popular deodorants (the not-natural kind) contain ingredients such as Aluminum, Parabens, BHT, Propylene Glycol, and other long, strange names of chemicals that all have one thing in common – they are BAD FOR YOU. Studies link these chemicals to cancer, Alzheimers, and fertility problems, among other health issues.
The good news is that there are many health and eco-conscious companies that market 100% organic, all-natural deodorants that are safe and effective. When selecting a deodorant, pay attention to the ingredients label and make sure everything listed is all-natural. Natural deodorants may include things like mineral sea salts, essential oils, and witch hazel.
It may take a little bit of experimentation with different all-natural deodorants to find the one that works best for you, but you owe it to yourself and your health to give it a try.
