Deodorant Chemicals - What You Need to Know!
by Dr. Nathalie Beauchamp
Aluminum - One main concern with deodorants is related to their high levels of
aluminum salts. Aluminum chloride, aluminum carbohydrate and aluminum zirconium
chlorhydrate glycine complexes can make up 25 percent of the weight of the
deodorant/antiperspirant, which is not healthy - especially in Western cultures where
most women shave their underarms, resulting in more skin absorption of the harmful
substances. Aluminum has also been linked to Alzheimer's disease.

Parabens - These are another concern related to deodorants. Parabens may be listed
on labels as: methyl parabens, ethyl parabens, propyl parabens, butyl parabens,
isobutyl parabens or E216. These parabens have shown particularly troubling links to
cancer, present and intact in breast tumours. Studies have also shown that parabens
affect the body much like estrogens do - diminishing muscle mass, allowing for extra
storage of fat and prompting male gynecomastia (breast growth).

Propylene Glycol - found in thousands of cosmetic products - to help moisturize. It is
also an ingredient used in anti-freeze and brake fluid, so it's no surprise that it could
cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.

Fragrance - found in many deodorants. While it may seem harmless, it should be
avoided as it can cause allergies and lung problems. Unfortunately, the priority of
most companies that sell beauty products is their financial bottom line, not your
long-term health. Ultimately, we can't ignore the fact that all the chemicals we use
on our body may increase our risk of developing cancer. Knowledge is power, but
you have to act on that knowledge.

expected to use a wide range of body

wreak havoc with allergies and create
illness where there was none.

Here are the most common
chemicals used in deodorants that
you should avoid buying. Aluminum,
