Okay more specifically -
what you put on your armpits every day!
Most likely you (& folks around you hope you do) use a deodorant or antiperspirant daily.
The thing is - the ingredients these products have in common is aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium.
Aluminum is what gives antiperspirants their wetness-fighting ability.
Commercial deodorants can contain up to 25 % aluminum salts by weight.
We really do not know the long term effect this can have if we daily put aluminum on our bodies.
The Cancer Link -
Let's be clear: despite what you'll find on the internet, there are no definitive studies which link the use of antiperspirants to an increased risk of cancer.
Having said that- the cancer fright comes from a published paper by Dr. Philippa Darby, in the Journal of Applied Toxicology showing that " aluminum salts increase estrogen-related gene expression in human breast tissue" ~ translated ~
"aluminum appears to mimic estrogen under lab conditions - elevated estrogen levels are tied to a higher risk of breast cancer."
Safer Alternative -
Not caring to wait until studies are complete and wanting to eliminate - or at the least cut down the amount of chemicals used on my body ~ I went to work ~ and created
a product that was chemical-free - safe to use daily yet actually work - to do the job ~ to absorb moisture and odor while leaving me free from toxins.
A task that had taken many many months of trial and error to develop!
and by jove, we've done it!!
Hand to Soul's All Natural Deodorant that truly 'works' without aluminum and only using the freshest most natural products.
Your body will thank you for the switch!!!
yours in good health.......
