Our bodies help regulate temperature by sweating. Sweating is also a natural and healthy to rid our bodies of toxins. It is mostly odorless, yet it can become a mortifying issue when the bacteria bacteria multiplies and decomposes in these secretions. This results in body odor. Many deodorants quickly nix this issue by preventing body odor. Not only they prevent body odor, but they also help you keep dry. The majority of those deodorants contain aluminum zirconium, aluminum chloride, or aluminum chlorhydrate. Research has proven again and again that these ingredients are linked to cancer, especially breast cancer; neurotoxicity, and a host of other ailments. They can also cause itching, irritation, and redness. Considering that sweat is our body’s #1 way of sending toxins on their merry way, they’re unable to work effectively when the aforementioned ingredients are present. This results in toxin build-up over time.

The Sandalwood scent sounds heavenly! Deodorant is the one product that I haven’t yet switched to something more natural and healthy. I definitely want to, because I know there’s some nasty stuff in my conventional product!
