How To Make Your Own Natural Deodorant That Works?
The conventional deodorants that we are using every day are full of dangerous chemicals that are causing skin irritation by quick penetration under the skin and might even cause cancer. These products are preventing you from sweating because of the aluminum which helps block your sweat glands. But aluminum is a very toxic ingredient which not only removes calcium from your body but also has a dangerous affect on the lymphatic and endocrine systems, thus causing breast cancer.
According to the Julie Gabriel from, the Green Beauty Guide: Aluminum is used in anti – perspirants all over the world to “dry out sweat by injecting aluminum ions in the cells that line the sweat ducts. Water flows in, as soon as, the aluminum ions are drawn into the cells; the cells begin to enlarge and swell, pressing the ducts to close, so sweat cannot get out.” Did you know that by FDA requirements all antiperspirants must lower the average person’s sweat by 20 percent? This is why the manufacturers often put 10 to 25 percent of aluminum concentration in their products. This is a lot of aluminum especially for a potent neurotoxin, for one product.
Additionally, these antiperspirants are powerful astringents that block the toxins from getting out of your body through your sweat. This is only a reason more why we need to avoid these conventional products. We are sure that just like us you have tried many different all natural deodorants. Unfortunately, none of them did a successful job and protect you from the odor caused by bacteria combined with apocrine sweat. That is why homemade deodorants are great at preventing odor.
