Have you ever checked the back of your deodorant or antiperspirant? Notice any of the ingredients in your favorite brand, can you say them do you know what they are? I am willing to bet you probably don't, up until about a year ago I didn't either and I assumed because these companies were making billions of dollars selling deodorant they were using quality ingredients....Boy was I wrong! Below you will find an example of a popular female deodorant/antiperspirant...take a good look at the ingredient list.
Those three ingredients are all toxic and have been linked to causing cancer. In fact there was a study that linked the parabens and aluminum in women's deodorant to the breast cancer increase. Majority of breast cancer occurs close to the armpit area which is where the ingredients are typically absorbed. Now, before you say it I know many many things can cause cancer and they do, but if we can eliminate one of those causes, don't we owe it to our health to try?
When you look at the ingredients in the Crystal Deodorant by Crystalline Salts you have one ingredient...yep you heard right....just one ingredient....
That one ingredient is the mineral rock which is used as the deodorant, now many of you are probably asking how this works, well allow my to share with you that answer. When you apply typical deodorant you are putting a layer of deodorant on your skin, to block the smell caused by sweat. What causes that smell, do you know? Bacteria, when you sweat you have moisture and bacteria thrives on moisture, the bacteria is what causes the stink you associate with sweating. With the mineral rock you don't just cover that up you actually put a layer of the mineral on your skin which prevents the actual bacteria from growing hence preventing the stink from sweating.
Now, one thing to remember is that it will take a week or two for your body to adjust to the new deodorant so you might experience a slight smell if you sweat until your body gets adjusted, but once you adjust you shouldn't have any smell associated with sweat again. Another awesome thing about this deodorant is you can actually use it anywhere on your body, feet, skin folds, under your breasts, etc. to help prevent smells associated with sweating.
