If you were to Google, just like I did below... "The best natural deodorant" you'd get over 80 million results!!
What this tells me, is that we KNOW this is something that we should be switching to cleaner and safer...but how many of you (like me) are not willing to compromise on being stinky, when the natural solution doesn't work?
And trust me when I say, that I have tried dozens of options!!
Now, we might think of using deodorant as a way to stay smelling fresh and prevent us from sweating.
But we've got it all wrong!
This is especially important to breast cancer survivors, like myself ...and even more so, those of us who have had lymph node removals.
You see, what we need to wrap our heads around, is that we NEED to sweat...it is our bodies natural way of removing toxins. So, if we are stopping our bodies from sweating, then we are blocking those pores and keeping all of those yucky toxins inside of us.
This can lead to things like:
Who knew that the deodorant that you choose can have SUCH a huge impact??
Now, most commonly known deodorants contain aluminum compounds, parabens, steareths, triclosan, propylene glycol, TEA and DEA, and artificial colors.
Aluminum exposure has been linked with the development of Alzheimer's disease and interferes with estrogen levels.
Parabens are probably one of the most harmful additives, which act as estrogen in your body which disrupts hormonal balances.
Steareths and Triclosan produce carcinogens.
TEA and DEA affect your liver and kidneys. They've already been banned from products in Europe because they are known carcinogens.
Many of the ingredients mentioned affect estrogen levels which makes for a higher risk for breast and prostate cancer.
Finding a safe YET effective deodorant has always been a challenge, until now, there's a new clean on the horizon and it actually works!
If you've been hanging out with me for a while now...you know I kinda geek out on removing toxins from my home, my personal care products, food etc. It's with good reason...
When you know that only 15% of breast cancer diagnosis are due to genetics (like mine...I carry the BRCA2 genetic mutation), it means that 85% of breast cancer diagnosis are due to ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS.
Toxins in our environment and our homes and the products we use EVERY SINGLE DAY are a massive part of this environmental puzzle, that isn't talked about a whole lot.
That's why you'll see me sharing what I learn along the way...so that I can do all the research and the sciency, mind blowing stuff - yes, I have studied under an environmental toxins expert - and you get to push the EASY BUTTON :)
That being said...your EASY BUTTON for today...is for safer deodorant, and I suspect it will be flying off the shelves, because this baby actually works! I've been using it for a couple of months now and I'm in love 💖
But I'm not the only one...
