Women’s deodorants without aluminum in 2019
Why should women choose an aluminumfree deodorant?
Aluminum is used in conventional deodorants to block the pores on your skin which release sweat. This in itself can be harmful as the body needs to sweat to release toxins and regulate body temperature.
Some research suggests even links between the absorption of aluminium and breast cancer in women and also an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Natural deodorants on the other hand are an eco friendly, gentler and healthier alternative to regular, mass produced deodorants as they do not contain any harmful chemicals such as aluminum, parabens or petroleum derivatives. Instead, they use naturally occurring ingredients which have no harmful effects on our bodies.
Which Alternative ingredients are there?
There is a wide range of ingredients used in all-natural deodorants such as baking soda, essential oils, witch hazel or mineral salts.
Baking Soda has a unique chemical composition which allows it neutralize offending body odours.
Essential oils such as tea tree oil, lemon grass or rosemary have antibacterial properties which feed on bacteria and stop it reacting with the sweat that produces odours.
Witch hazel is an aromatic yellow flower. It’s said to shrink the size of sweat pores on the skin, so while not preventing sweating – what aluminum salts are doing – it just reduces the amount of sweat produced.
Minerals salts can form a layer on the skin which stops bacteria from growing. You may still sweat but without bacteria there won’t be any smell.
