Does your deodorant have a secret?
Updated: May 9, 2018
Did you know under most standard deodorants contain toxic chemicals that can be linked to cancer? I always joke about “secret” brand deodorant because it really does have a secret. Your arm pits have very absorbing pores and anything put on them goes straight to your immune system. Most chemicals in deodorant are endocrine system disruptors as well. Try this non-toxic recipe and be kind to your body. There are also some great store bought brands that work great as well. I love Schmidt’s, EO spray deodorant, and Organic Fields of Heather. You can purchase most on Amazon or at a health food store. I have personally found Marshall’s has natural and non-toxic products for a very low price.
Download "Think Dirty" App and it will tell you what is in most toxic products on the market. You can scan the bar codes of products and it will tell you on a scale of 0-10 how toxic your products are. 0 is the best and 10 is completely toxic.
