Skin is your largest organ! It is also very absorbing, which means that the deodorants and other body care items you put on it can be absorbed into your body and into your bloodstream.
Additionally, using traditional anti-perspirants can block sweat pores, which prevents the body from releasing toxins and cooling itself down when overheated, both necessary and well-designed functions.
Most store-bought deodorants and antiperspirants have a slew of man-made chemicals that could cause wide-spread systemic damage to the body. Women who shave under their arms could be worse off, since shaving may cause nicks to the skin (even ones so tiny that they are naked to the human eye), and speed up the delivery of those chemicals via an “open door” into the body.
Common contents of common deodorant/antiperspirants:
Aluminum: A known neurotoxin, it has been linked to breast cancer, prostate cancer, and Alzheimer’s Disease.
Parabens: Linked to birth defects, sterility, cancer, and organ toxicity. Known for being endocrine disruptors, they interfere with hormones.
Propylene Glycol: May cause damage to the central nervous system, heart, and liver. Also used as “anti-freeze.”
Phthalates: Increase likelihood of cell mutation, disrupt endocrine receptors, and are linked to birth defects.
Triclosan: The FDA classifies this as a pesticide. May be cancer-causing.
TEA, DEA, FD&C Colors, Fragrance, Talc, and other potentially harmful ingredients are also added.
Estrogen receptors are all over the body, but there are particularly a lot in breast tissue. Using chemical deodorants are thought to contribute to the development of breast cancer. Indeed, a high amount of tumors are found in the area closest to the armpit, leading researchers to believe chemical deodorants to be the culprit.
Applying right after shaving may cause skin irritation. If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use.
Is there a scent to the unscented?
“Unscented” means “no added scent,” not necessarily that there is no scent to the product. We use natural or unrefined ingredients, which all have scents normally in nature. If you want a truly no scent product, you will have to buy one with heavily-processed, cheap, and most likely man-made ingredients.
Will the Deodorant keep me from sweating?
Many heavy sweaters who use chemical deodorants are actually sweating a lot because it is the body’s way of expelling toxins from the body. And because many toxins, like parabens, aluminum, propylene glycol, and phthalates are in conventional deodorants, the body works overtime trying to eliminate them. Additionally, using an antiperspirant (a product that minimizes or eliminates sweat underarms) can cause the same over sweating problem, since the body is meant to sweat. When the natural function of sweating is prevented, the body goes overboard in making it happen.
Green Tidings All Natural Deodorant is not an anti-perspirant. It is not designed to eliminate sweat, a natural bodily function. However, most users find that they sweat less after having not used any chemical deodorant for about one month (the approximate amount of time it takes for the body to normalize the sweat function). Additionally, some of our ingredients, like tapioca starch, do absorb moisture, so the natural sweat you do have will be lessened, but not prevented. Your body will thank you.
Does your baking soda contain aluminum?
Baking powder typically contains aluminum, not baking soda. There is NO ALUMINUM in our baking soda, nor in our deodorant!
How much should I apply?
You don’t need to apply as much as you think. Just try a few light swipes under your arms. Once daily is usually enough, as Green Tidings All Natural Deodorant is known to work for 24 hours for many people! If you find it to be very creamy under your arms, or if it leaves residue on your clothes, you’ve likely applied too much.
How long will it last?
Depending on how much, and how often, you apply, the small (.1 ounce) size should last 2-4 weeks. The large (2.7 ounces) size should last 4-8 weeks.
What if I get a rash or skin irritation?
Always discontinue use if you have an irritation. A rash can be due to the any of the following:
1) Detox reaction. This is your body expelling all the nasty ingredients from your previous toxic deodorant, and finally having the freedom to sweat naturally again. This type of rash clears up within 1 month. You can try to go without any deodorant whenever you can, or use the vinegar spray, below, while your body detoxes.
2) pH adjustment. For some, the deodorant will irritate the skin as the body adjusts to its pH levels. Sometimes this can even occur after having used the deodorant for some time. A simple remedy is to combine 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar with one cup of distilled water. Spray underarms. Let dry. Then apply deodorant. Repeat for a week. If this does not work, take 1 week off from the deodorant and use only the vinegar spray (which will help with odor, too). Begin using the deodorant again after a week has passed.
3) Skin irritation due to one of the ingredients. Your body could be sensitive to one of the natural ingredients. Lavender essential oil is irritating to some, Stop using if this is the case, and let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
