Scrap your Traditional Deodorant for a Healthier (and Still Sweet-Smelling) You!
We workout for a living, so trust us when we say that we have found the most effective and safe deodorant out there! We became increasingly concerned with the ingredients found in traditional antiperspirants and deodorants, especially aluminum and certain chemicals that are known endocrine disruptors which are both associated with chronic illnesses and cancers. We recently found Soapawalla Deodorant Cream which is made with tea tree oil, peppermint and lavender extract to absorb odor. Made of organic and food safe ingredients, this cream rubs on easily and absorbs fast. And best of all, it works! We generally take and teach HSM classes back to back and at the end of all that this deodorant is still doing its job!
The majority of the deodorants on the market today contain harmful chemicals such as parabens, aluminum and other hormone disrupters. These chemicals mimic estrogen and promote the growth of breast cancer cells and can even cause birth defects in future children.
Your microbiota, the bacteria and fungi that thrive in your skin, saliva and guts, play a vital role in maintaining your good health and act as a natural defense barrier for your body. Daily use of deodorants and antiperspirants containing dangerous chemicals, usually the ones you can’t pronounce, can take away and change the composition of this good, non-pathogenic bacterium. This can lead to a lowered defense system, changes in the odor produced and blocked sweat glands.
Whichever deodorant you choose to use, make sure you take a look at all of the ingredients before purchasing. If you see aluminum, parabens, silica, propylene glycol, triclosan or fragrance in the ingredients list, put it back on the shelf!
