Did you know fall is the perfect time to switch to a Natural Deodorant? Summer is so hot that when detoxing from aluminum based deodorants, your body sweats out all the chemicals. And when it's hot out, that's a little miserable. Cooler weather means easier detoxing. Here's why you should rid yourself of the aluminum.
1. Aluminum clogs your pores and inhibits your body's natural process of releasing toxins
2. Aluminum could potentially cause tumors and cancer (There is a huge debate about this, but really, why take the chance?)
3. When using Natural Deodorants, the body actually sweats LESS.
Natural Deodorants do take some getting used to. Your body needs to flush out all the chemicals from the aluminum antiperspirant and become accustomed to the natural product.
Here's the ingredient list for our Natural Deodorant and what each item does for you.
Beeswax: Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. Softens and protects the skin.
Organic Coconut Oil: Moisturizes skin and is antibacterial.
Baking Soda: Balances pH and combats body odor.
Arrowroot Powder: Non GMO and absorbs wetness.
Essential Oils: Eat up odor-causing bacterial and help you smell great!
