Handmade Natural Deodorant
Why Natural Deodorant? We're so glad you are curious!
Did you know that the mass produced, store bought name brand deodorant you've been using is known to be linked to Breast Cancer and possibly Alzheimer's Disease? Standard deodorant is made with Phthalates, Propylene Glycol (basically antifreeze) Aluminum and Parabens and NONE are meant to be on or in your body! Phthalates and Endocrine disruptors that can cause hormone imbalance and even INFERTILITY!!! Parabens have been reported present in breast tumors, YIKES! We use this all natural deodorant and we are in love with it!
If you are a breastfeeding mama, you may have heard that you're not supposed use deodorant? That's due to yet again - those awful ingredients that can pass into your milk glands! Seriously...no thank you!
Some natural deodorants are made with baking soda - but many people have more sensitive skin and this can still cause some irritation. So we used something that not only is for sensitive skin, but it's a natural - from mother earth - minerals!
Zinc Oxide is actually found in nature and is known to help reduce and prevent redness and inflammation, as well as soothe and heal the skin from shaving or other irritations. We also used Zinc Ricinoleate, a natural fatty acid that comes from Castor Oil (a wonderful oil we use for all of our soaps!) It allows you to sweat, which is what we as humans are supposed to do, and It's also the reason you get to avoid that terrible stinky detox most natural deodorants put you through!
We also thought it would be nice to throw in some Activated Charcoal to help absorb some of that sweat. Colloidal Oatmeal + Aloe Vera Powder to soothe irritation from shaving.
So why not go ahead and go all natural with your deodorant, you have zero excuses!
