Why do we sweat?
Perspiring or sweating plays a vital role in maintaining
normal health because it helps our bodies:
What's the difference between antiperspirants and
Many commercial deodorants contain a host of chemicals,
among them aluminum. Aluminum is a very
widely used active antiperspirant ingredient that aims to keep our underarms
fresh. Whether they’re in the form of aluminum chloride, zirconium,
chlorohydrate or hydroxybromide, aluminum salts inhibit the sweating process.
Studies indicate that aluminum is a chemical acting as a
neurotoxin that has been associated with neurodegenerative diseases like
Alzheimer’s. Furthermore, the antiperspirant effects of aluminum could prevent
(to some extent) the skin from releasing toxins via sweat. No matter the
reason, if toxins accumulate, they tend to cause cellular changes, which in
turn increases the risk for cancer. Other concerning studies also imply on more
potentially detrimental effects of aluminum like kidney disease and
liver damage (a study done by the Saint Louis University). Another common
component in antiperspirants are a group of chemicals known as parabens that
may have correlation with breast cancer because of their
estrogen-like effects, but evidence is scarce.
Organic deodorants don’t contain aluminum, alcohol or
artificial perfumes. There are no harsh chemicals that could potentially
irritate sensitive skin. Organic products won’t clog your pores. All of our
deodorants are made from 100% organic coconut oil, cornstarch, essential oils
and beeswax. Never any propylene glycol, triclosan or alcohol; this is product
for people who care about their health and the health of our world.
