  • What's in regular deodorant?

    \n\nAluminum is the active ingredient antiperspirants rely on to keep our underarms fresh. This is how it works: Aluminum salts prevent us from sweating when aluminum ions are drawn into the cells that line the sweat ducts, causing the cells to swell and squeezing the ducts closed so sweat cannot get out. 

    \nUnfortunately, aluminum is also a known neurotoxin that has been linked to breast cancer and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

  • The most concerning risk factor for many of these ingredients—especially aluminum—is long-term exposure. Although studies about such health risks are not yet definitive, it makes sense to investigate safe alternatives.

    \n\nFortunately. It’s becoming easier than ever to turn to safe, effective alternatives. Here are a few types you will find on the market.
