This product is used in antiperspirants to block your sweat glands and reduce the amount of sweat you secrete. It doesn’t reduce the amount your body produces, only the amount that is secreted through your follicles. As mentioned, aluminum will also kill off some bacteria under your arms that don’t produce strong body odor, allowing those bacteria that do produce a pungent odor to proliferate.
Aluminum is a metal that may increase gene instability in breast tissue. This instability may be related to changes promoting the growth of tumors. Although this is not proof that aluminum is a causative factor, those who use products containing aluminum tend to have higher rates of breast cancer.
Parabens are preservatives used in many different types of personal care products, including moisturizers, deodorants, sunscreens, shaving creams and gels, hair products and make up. Parabens are associated with changes to the production and regulation of estrogen and other hormones in your body as they penetrate your skin and act like a weak estrogen.
These compounds help your personal care products stick to your skin or hair. This means anything you use with fragrance that lingers has phthalates to improve the stability of the scent. Hair shampoo, lotions, perfumes, deodorants, body sprays, antiperspirants, body wash and soap all contain phthalates that continue to build up in your body over time.
The compound appears to disrupt the androgen functions in your body. You may think of androgen and testosterone as strictly male hormones, but the female body uses this hormone as well to build and maintain muscle, and it plays a role in energy maintenance.
Phthalates are toxic to reproductive glands in both men and women. Fetal development in pregnant women may be affected, and research has linked the compound to reduced IQs and asthma.
This chemical is so commonly used in products that 75 percent of Americans have detectable Triclosan levels in their bloodstream. Although a common ingredient in antibacterial soaps, cosmetic manufacturers use it to kill bacteria on the skin in products such as anti-acne creams, deodorants and antiperspirants.
Animal studies have linked triclosan with unusual hormonal activity, and through transdermal absorption it can disrupt the bacterial growth in your gut. According to Patisaul: “There’s evidence from amphibians and fish … that triclosan impairs thyroid function, which is crucial for brain development. To my knowledge, there aren’t any clear benefits associated with it when used in underarm products.”
The chemical ingredients in scents are concealed and protected by trade law. You may experience allergic reactions or skin irritation from fragrances contained in deodorants and antiperspirants.

It is an age-old skin healing shrub. Its leaves, twigs, and barks undergo a delicate distillation process to give us a mild astringent, commonly referred to as witch hazel water, Hamamelis water, or distilled witch hazel extract.
The witch hazel extract contains tannins, catechins, flavonoids, and essential oils such as eugenol and hexenol that together make it an excellent antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent for treating different skin conditions.
Coming to its beauty applications, the antioxidants found in witch hazel work as scavengers on free radicals to prevent skin damage.
Antioxidants are important for health.
Aloe vera gel contains powerful antioxidants, which belong to a large family of substances known as polyphenols.
These polyphenols, along with several other compounds in Aloe vera, can help inhibit the growth of certain bacteria.
Vegetable Glycerin is a natural humectant, which is something my entire bod craves all year round. When used with other natural oils and ingredients, it can seal in moisture on the top layer of our skin while the other oils work their way deep into our cells to provide long-lasting moisture.
