We all use deodorants and we use them every day, which is a bad thing! And now you probably ask yourself – why? Here’s why – the skin is the largest organ in the human body and it’s absorbing all kinds of nutrients and particles from its surface. And, as we said, we all use all kinds of cosmetic products, creams, make up, deodorants and other beauty products, which means that our skin is absorbing all of these products!
This is really bad for us and our skin, because these cosmetic products usually contain high amounts of harmful chemicals. These are the most common chemicals found in many different cosmetic products, deodorants and antiperspirants. You will be shocked when you see that your favorite deodorants are loaded with all kinds of harmful chemicals.
SOME OF THE TOXINS FOUND IN ALMOST EVERY DEODORANT INCLUDE:
- Aluminum– the manufacturers add aluminum compounds into deodorants in order to prevent sweating. But, the real and ugly truth is that many experts around the world have linked this harmful compound to Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer in women, and prostate cancer in men. Aluminum also disrupts the endocrine system. And this is really bad for all of us, because we have major lymph nodes right next to the armpit area.
- Propylene glycol– this harmful substance is also known as antifreeze. The experts say that this ingredient can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver, and heart. It is known to cause skin irritations in very small amounts (2 percent or less), but still, some deodorants contain 50 percent propylene glycol content.
- Formaldehyde– did you know that formaldehyde is the same chemical compound, which is used to preserve deceased bodies?
- Phthalates – phthalate is known endocrine disruptor that has also been linked to infertility in men. Besides deodorants, phthalates can also be found in plastic products.
- Parabens– do you know what are parabens? Well, parabens are preservatives and antiperspirants that disrupt hormonal balances and cause early puberty in children. In a study conducted in 2004, parabens were found in 18 of 20 samples of tissue from human breast tumors, which is a serious sign of the cancer-causing properties of these chemicals.
- Triclosan– triclosan is a harmful chemical, which is used as an antibacterial agent and preservative in deodorants, and reacts with tap water to create a chloroform gas, which is a potential carcinogen. Triclosan is also a known endocrine disruptor.
