Aluminum Powder Free

Commercial deodorants and anti-perspirants typically have aluminum powder added to them to block under arm sweat ducts, and reduce bacteria that create odor. There is a much publicized movement against aluminum powder in deodorants and anti-perspirants.

Whilst we won’t comment on claims regarding links to breast cancer, we do know that aluminum powder is used to block sweat ducts, reducing the bodies ability to naturally dispose of toxins. As consumers & natural product developers, we do not believe this approach is a good for your body.

Switching to natural deodorant

 

Conventional deodorant and especially antiperspirants are known to block pores, in the case of antiperspirants aluminum is typically used to block the sweat ducts.
Initially when moving to a natural deodorant, you can find for the first few days that you seem to sweat more, this is due to the pores slowly unclogging from the commercial antiperspirants.

 

Once the detox period is completed you should find that your body adjusts and our natural deodorant keeps your underarm dry and fresh. The great news is that in our experience our natural deodorant works better the longer you use it.

 

Using the natural deodorant

 

Ensure that your under arm is clean and dry.
The deodorant applys best when warm, apply the stick to your under arm, allow to warm for a few seconds then apply a small amount with a single glide, repeat just once more if needed.
Applying too much will reduce effectiveness, and possibly result in staining on clothing. Trying to apply without warming can causing irritation due to the drag.
