With so much conflicting and inconclusive ‘research’ out there, weeding out the harmful from the harmless isn’t an easy undertaking. To make better choices we should explore a few if the facts behind the toxins in antiperspirant and deodorant.
Toxins are classified as products that are poisonous to humans, and because most of what we put on our skin ends up in our bloodstream, it’s important to know about the potentially harmful toxins in your products and what, if any, impact they have on your health.
Common deodorants and antiperspirants may contain the following chemicals:
Aluminium compounds (contribute to cognitive decline)
Parabens (mimic oestrogen and are often found in breast tissue biopsies. Many countries are phasing it out)
Triclosan (Triclosan is classified as an endocrine disruptor & contributes towards drug-resistant bacteria)
Propylene glycol, phthalates and Artificial colours all have produced evidence of toxicity in studies
Because you use your deodorant every single day, &, for woman, we apply these products on constantly exfoliated (shaved) thin skin with many lymph nodes immediately under this vulnerable surface, many of these chemicals are harmful to your health and may irritate sensitive skin.
Crystal Fresh is Hypo-allergenic making it ideal for sensitive skin. Colourless, so it does not stain clothes, and contains no Ozone-damaging propellants or Aluminium Chlorohydrate and it’s paraben free.
Made from real crystals of mineral salts, Crystal Fresh is different from common scented deodorants and here’s why:
Crystal deodorant is an alternative deodorant made of natural mineral salt called Potassium alum, which has been shown to have antimicrobial properties; The salt in crystal deodorants helps to kill bacteria that cause underarm odour – While you may still sweat, the odour may be reduced or eliminated. Part of the allure of crystal deodorant is that you’re able to eliminate the chemicals that are found in conventional deodorant.
Deodorant and antiperspirant may inhibit the secretion of toxins from your body from due to suppressing or preventing sweating. This is thought to lead to clogged pores and a build-up of toxins.
