Deodorant contains dangerous ingredients: MAKE YOUR OWN
Natural Cures Not Medicine
February 22, 2013
Your favorite deodorant might contain dangerous ingredients that can cause cancer, brain damage, and even liver abnormalities.
1/4 Cup of Baking Soda (neutralizes odor)
1/4 Cup of Arrowroot starch (absorbs moisture)
4 Tb Coconut Oil (anti-bacterial and moisturizing) 1/4 tsp Tea Tree Oil (anti-bacterial)
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste/cream… and that’s it!
WHY SHOULD YOU MAKE YOUR OWN OR NOT USE ANY?
3 of the worst deodorant ingredients are:
Parabens: (On the label* methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben or isobutylparaben) These are used in many skin care and cosmetic products. They act as a preservative to discourage bacteria and fungus. Research shows that parabens from lotions and deodorants can absorb into the body and weakly mimic estrogen causing damage to the endocrine system.
Aluminum: One of the main ingredients in many deodorants and antiperspirants is aluminum, which actually blocks the body from producing sweat. Aluminum has been known to cause neurological damage and contribute to diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Aluminum has been found to be able to enter and remain in a human bloodstream for up to two weeks after just one application of deodorant or antiperspirant.
Propelene Glycol: is often used in deodorants and is also an ingredient in antifreeze. Factory workers who are exposed are warned of the danger of kidney, brain, and liver damage through skin contact.
