If you have heard about the links of aluminum included antiperspirants and breast cancer, you might want to read on, because I found all natural alternatives that are not just healthier but even way better!
Dangers Of Deodorant Spray
It is no secret that our common spray deodorants include a lot of toxic chemicals. Many of us are using them without even thinking about the possible consequences.
Most teenagers start to apply spray deodorant in the age of only 13 and continue to do so when getting older. I personally started using deodorant spray in the age of 12 even though I actually didn´t need it back then.
Let´s have a look on the toxic ingredients of spray deodorant:
The most common chemical ingredients found in antiperspirants are aluminum, triclosan, phthalates, propylene glycol and parabens.
Research has linked these ingredients to several medical conditions including types of cancer and reproductive development issues. The most common appearing cancer type caused by spray deodorants is breast cancer. This is due to the area where it is sprayed on… directly next to our breasts! Most people guess that only women can suffer from breast cancer but several studies have shown, that men get that as well. I was shocked, when my math teacher told us, that he has just lost a good friend that died from breast cancer and he was male.
A healthy diet and genes do play a big role, too but if we can reduce the risk of suffering any disease, we should have a look at the outer circumstances that have a direct influence on our health as well.
Inhaling large doses of the above mentioned chemicals from deodorants can be fatal as well. Most people, including myself, apply their deodorant in the bathroom with closed windows daily. We all probably know the disgusting taste of inhaling this spray. Not only the taste is bad but research found links to appearing allergies, eczema and asthma!
Benefits of Cream Deodorant
Most deodorant creams are all natural. That is what makes them superior to deodorant sticks. They often contain ingredients like Shea butter, coconut oil, baking soda, essential oils and antibacterial ingredients like tea tree oil.
They do mostly come in jars which makes the amount of apply even more flexible. Please note that the only downside is that you have to apply it with your hands. This makes it a bit indiscreet when you are outside but I personally never had to add more throughout the day.
This is what makes cream deodorant so special to me because it lasts all day long!!! I know that every body is different but this is definitely my experience. Since I use cream deodorant, I never smelled my sweat again. I also never smelled the deodorant because it doesn´t really have an own smell but I truly also never smelled my armpits again!
For those of you that use spray deodorants because of the smell, I recommend you to just use a good perfume on your clothes instead. This will also last longer than the smell of a spray deodorant.
Reviews Of Cream Deodorant
I personally love the following one! I use it on a daily basis and never had any problems with it. I know that the prices are more expensive for a cream deodorant but it lasts very long. I guess that in the end, the price is almost the same.
You can find it in certain organic stores in the cosmetics section, on their website or on Amazon. I recently found that it is more expensive to buy it in the store and cheaper online. If you have Amazon premium, you can also save the shipping costs which you probably have to pay on their website. I will just put the link for it on Amazon right here for you.
If you could not find this one in your country or the company won´t ship it to your location, the following one should definitely be available for you. It is very similar to the above mentioned and you can find it on Amazon as well. You can either click on the picture or right here.
My Conclusion On Cream Deodorant
I have been using it now for about 4 months and I don´t want to go back. It is definitely the long term choice for me and I can recommend it to everyone that is trying to choose healthier and more natural choices. I would be really thankful if you could comment down below your experiences with cream deo.
