Have you heard about how toxic most store-bought deodorants are? Aluminum is found in most off the shelf deodorants. It actually blocks your pores to prevent sweat and keep you "dry" all day. Click here to read up on the hazards associated with conventional deodorant and the benefits of using this brand.
You may feel “dry” all day, but are actually not allowing your body to release the toxins by sweating.
There are many other chemicals in typical deodorant that are linked to a whole host of health problems.
Parabens are preservatives that allow the product to last longer by preventing mold or bacteria growth, BUT have been very closely linked to endocrine disruption + breast cancer.
Fragrance masks body odor + makes you smell slightly floral or shower fresh, BUT is a mixture of 3,000+ chemical ingredients and the cause of countless serious health issues.
Aluminum blocks your pores to prevent sweat and keep you dry all day long, BUT studies have revealed its connection to detrimental diseases like Alzheimer’s and even death.
I finally made the switch to a natural deodorant and am so glad! I waited until I ran out of my typical stuff, and will never go back. Primally Pure charcoal deodorant is awesome! I've been using "Degree" deodorant for years, and felt like I needed to re-apply throughout the day and it didn't work very well! I used another popular “natural” deodorant, but even after letting it warm up a bit on my skin, it was still abrassive on my skin and difficult to apply. The charcoal deodorant has a nice clean aroma to it, and I’m going to get some for my husband too!
Here's what I've noticed since switching:
no need to re-apply throughout the day
less product used: 1-2 swipes per arm is all you need
glides on smoothly (I had issues with Schmidt's being too hard + abrasive when applying)
no underarm odor
no endocrine disrupting ingredients
Ingredients in the Charcoal Deodorant:
Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil*
Tallow from Grass-Fed Cows
Non-nano Zinc Oxide
White Kaolin Clay
