How to Choose a Safe Deodorant

How to Choose a Safe Deodorant

Most of us appreciate when the people around us wear deodorant!  It is important to choose a deodorant with less toxic ingredients because products that you put on your skin are absorbed into your body.

Stay away from deodorant with:

Aluminum- linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s
Fragrances – can disrupt hormonal imbalance
Parabens – can disrupt hormonal balance
Petroleum based ingredients such as propylene glycol – can cause liver and heart damage
There are 3 choices when choosing a less toxic deodorant.

Choose a more natural ready-made deodorant
            - the Environmental Working Group’s skindeep website gives a rating on deodorants and other   beauty products – an 0-2 has the least amount of  toxins and would be a good product to purchase, and a 7-10 rating has lots          of toxins and should be avoided

            - www.ewg.org/skindeep/browse/antiperspirant;deodorant/

Chose an even more natural ready-made deodorant with ingredients that are simple and familiar, such as coconut oil and baking soda
            - Primal Pit Paste is a good brand

            - there should be local vendors at the local farmers market (Atherton Mills

              has a good selection in Charlotte)

Make your own
- You can mix up your own deodorant using ingredient such as: cornstarch (non gmo), baking soda, coconut oil, arrowroot powder, essential oils

- You will need  to play with the mixture based on time of year and personal sensitivities – some people are more sensitive to baking soda

What do I do?

            I find it is super easy to make my own deodorant at home.  I mix about ¾ cup of coconut oil and ¼ cup baking soda.  Then I add a few drops of melaleuca (tea tree oil) and orange essential oils. I find this mixture works well for me even in the hot summer months in North Carolina

It has fully emerged to crown Singapore's southern shores and undoubtedly placed her on the global map of residential landmarks. I still scored the more points than I ever have in a season for GS. I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody with the same consistency I have had over the years so I am happy with that. Black Seed
