Skincare talk, planetcare concern? ❁ here's some quick info on deodorants, as researched:
❁ Sweat is our bodies' way to cool themselves and expell waste and toxins. A perfectly normal process, which we should NEVER BLOCK! Unpleasant bodily odour in this case is the result of bacteria reacting with sweat.
❁ Commercial products are distinguished as antiperspirants (reduction or elimination of sweating) and deodorants (odour masking), with industries mostly combining these features.
× most antiperspirants contain aluminum, a DNA mutation causing substance, thus it's connected with cancer possibility
× aluminum is harmful for people with impaired kidney function
× it also is a water pollutant and ecosystem / aquatic life threat
× in deodorants, triclosan (a powerful antibacterial agent) cannot be filtered out during waste water treatment. It is toxic to algae, and therefore to creatures that feed on algae.
❁ Swaping to natural products is of major importance, but not the solution. We should reduce frequency of use anyways.
❁ So this homemade deodorant is entirely parabens, GMO, bi-carb free. A blend of organic cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, shea butter, cornflower, magnesium hydroxide and essential oil of jasmine jasmine jasmine!!! ❁ more info in upcoming posts ♡
