Our organic and free of aluminum, 100% Pure Lemongrass Deodorant puts an end to odor-producing bacteria without harmful toxins or ingredients.
Why use natural deodorant? Many commercial deodorants contain aluminum zirconium tetracholrohydex, which is carcinogenic and toxic and has been linked to Alzheimer's, seizures, and breast cancer. And many deodorants are antiperspirant which prevents the body from sweating. But sweating is a natural function of our bodies and a way that we release toxins. It is good for us to sweat. The goal is to keep the smell calmed down right? So how can we do this? First it is good to know that when your sweat smells bad (which is a perception...some people like the way body odor smells) it indicates the presence of bacteria and will largely reflect your diet. Eating processed foods with a diet that contains a lot of sugar and fried foods will contribute to the way you smell. Incorporate more whole food, fresh foods.
If you are just switching from commercial conventional antiperspirant/deodorant to natural, be prepared for a mild underarm detox. Your armpits are likely to detox when you make the switch, there will be an adjustment period where things may seem to get worse before they get better. Be patient. This may take a couple days to a couple weeks. This detox process is different for everyone, but it is possible that you might experience an increase in odor or wetness as you detox away from an aluminum-free deodorant.
To use - Just pinch off a small amount on your fingers and rub under your arms! A little goes a long way, so don't over do it. I usually use a dime sized amount on each arm pit!
Research has linked the aluminum chlorohydrate in commercial deodorants to Alzheimer's disease and cancer. Many people chose to switch to natural crystal deodorant sticks. These natural deodorants are made with potassium alum. Another form of aluminum, the difference is that aluminum chlorohydrate is made up of molecules that get absorbed by the body, clogging the sweat glands to prevent perspiration. Potassium alum molecules are too large to be absorbed by the body and create a layer on top of the skin blocking odor. The jury is out on whether potassium alum can be harmful even when it cannot be absorbed by the body. Stay away from them!
