Your skin is the largest organ in your body, so you need to keep it protected. Anything that you put on your skin can get absorbed into it, especially if you put the same product on every day.
Deodorant is one of those products you just can’t avoid, especially if you happen to be an active and busy person. However, some deodorant brands conceal harmful chemicals that can really affect your body. Because the armpits are such a permeable part of the skin, they can actually absorb up to 100% of anything that’s put on them. This means that you have to be extremely careful about what goes on them, and what subsequently gets transferred into your bloodstream.
Here’s a list of seven ingredients to look out for on the back of deodorant packaging. If possible, it’s best to avoid them immediately.
INGREDIENTS TO AVOID
• Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
• Propylene glycol
• Sodium hydroxide
• Any other petro-chemicals or preservatives
While there may be some deodorants in drugstores that don’t contain any of these ingredients, a natural alternative is something that you can really only make yourself. Deodorant is too important a product to simply stop using (for the sake of everyone around you!), but an all-natural and organic alternative is easy to make, and probably cheaper in the long run.
