What is your deodorant?

Aluminum is a common ingredient in deodorant and antiperspirant. It is linked to Alzheimer's disease, brain disorder, breast cancer etc. Aluminum compounds or aluminum salts, such as aluminum oxide are key ingredients in almost antiperspirant. They are powerful ingredients that close pores and stop sweat and odor. Antiperspirants may leave the outside of the body smelling fresh and clean but unfortunately toxins will remain inside your body. This explains that antiperspirants have been connected to problems with the sweat glands and lymph glands in and around the underarms.

I stopped using deodorant that contains aluminum. I am using now Naturally Fresh crystal deodorant. It is 100% all pure and natural and does not contain toxic ingredients. It is made of pure mineral salts that provide 24-hour odor protection, fragrance-free, and non-staining. It allows the pores in our armpit to excrete toxins naturally.
