First of all, you must surely ask yourself what is this mode for natural deodorant since the one you use since always does your business ...
Well know that if the natural deodorant has become a must, it is not a coincidence. Real facts explain this craze. For example, cases of breast cancer explode year after year and it is scientifically demonstrated that the aluminum salts or zirconium contained in antiperspirants are partly responsible for this cancer. These products prevent the sweat glands from secreting sweat, which is undesirable. In addition, the fragrances used often contain phthalates and parabens, listed by the David Suzuki Foundation as endocrine disruptors (unbalance the functioning of our glands such as the thyroid, adrenals, ovaries / testes, etc.)
Why do we sweat?
This is a completely normal phenomenon which serves to regulate our body temperature, but also to evacuate internal toxins. Sweating also balances the skin's pH, which is vital for it. It also creates a defensive barrier on the skin that protects it, among other things, from the invasion of bacteria that are harmful to us.
Why am I sweating now, whereas before I didn't sweat? And where do the smells come from?
It is quite normal that our degree of perspiration varies according to the different periods of our life. In other words, depending on the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, menopause or andropause, sweating can change in terms of quantity, but also of smell. These variations can also depend on the stress experienced, or even on the diet.
Also, we have several bacteria present on our skin (more than 1000 different species), and this, in permanent residence! These bacteria serve to limit the risk of contamination by pathogenic organisms. But this valiant protective role sometimes gives off a foul odor! In addition, given that our armpits are rich in eccrine and apocrine sweat glands, the result is a mixture of sweat rich in proteins, which are broken down by bacteria producing odor molecules ...
How do our natural deodorants work?
They are made from naturally sourced ingredients like: clay, sodium bicarbonate, tapioca and corn starch, and zinc oxide. These ingredients absorb excess sweat. We also add essential oils with antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral and antiperspirant properties, making it possible to control less pleasant odors! All these ingredients are incorporated into a base of vegetable butters, namely shea and coconut. These butters provide softness and hydration to the skin. In addition, coconut oil controls skin pH and has an antibacterial action. So why not go for a natural deodorant over a commercial antiperspirant that could do you some harm?
Keep in mind that a deodorant will fight off unpleasant odors, but won't stop you from sweating, which is a great thing, as we explained above. We use natural ingredients in the right dosage, which can act as an odor absorbent and perspiration regulator, for your greater well-being, and to protect your health capital.
