These days, many of us are stressing over the every day products we use on our bodies because we’ve learned that many contain cancer-causing chemicals such as aluminum chlorohydrate.

The majority of antiperspirants also contain parabens, which imitate estrogen in the body and encourages the growth of cancer cells. Items placed on the skin are absorbed directly into the blood which is one reason why breast cancers have become so prevalent in our society. The exposure to parabens has also been linked to nausea, depression of the central nervous system, and damage to the digestive system.

All of the harmful/toxic ingredients used in the items we apply on our bodies daily are making us absolutely fearful!

We found a few natural and non-toxic deodorants for both sexes that really work and will put your mind at ease.
