Aluminium Free Deodorant
We all sweat! Sweating is a natural bodily function that aims to reduce your temperature when you’re too hot. Unfortunately, although your sweat has no odour, the moist environment produced by perspiration encourages the growth of bacteria that break down the acid that’s present in the sweat, and it is this that causes any unpleasant smells. +
To reduce or eliminate those smells, we can either use an antiperspirant to stop the perspiration or a deodorant that still allows you to sweat but masks any unpleasant odours that result. These products use chemicals, however, and cause harm to the environment as well as ourselves.
Why Using Aluminium Free, Natural Deodorant Is A Good Idea
Traditional antiperspirants work by using aluminium salts to temporarily block the sweat ducts and so prevent perspiration from reaching the surface of the skin. However, sweating is a natural function that removes toxins from your body as well as helping to regulate temperature, so preventing it from happening is not really a good thing to do.
The aluminium works with keratin fibres in the sweat ducts and molecules on the surface of the skin to plug the ducts but can also be absorbed into the skin. There are reports suggesting that the aluminium can increase the risk of breast cancer, as can parabens that are present in antiperspirants. So, although these suggestions have never been scientifically proven, it is a potential risk that can be avoided by using other products.
One unsavoury outcome of using aluminium based antiperspirants is that aluminium does react with any sweat that is produced. This results in the yellow staining that sometimes appears on light coloured clothing but doesn’t appear when an aluminium free deodorant is used.
One final point is that many chemical deodorants and antiperspirants are produced by companies that use animals for testing. Our natural versions don’t and so can be bought as truly cruelty-free products.
