Whether you use antiperspirant or natural deodorant, an armpit detox is the key to tackling the base issue of body odor. Here’s why and how.
Now this debate has been going on for years. Let me preface this by saying the decision you make after reading all the information out there and forming your own opinion, is the right one for you.
Aluminum is one of the ingredients in antiperspirants, a product that we usually apply every day for most of our lives. This means that if you’re putting a product on for every day of your life, then it’s important to know what exactly is in it.
The reason why aluminum is a controversial ingredient is because aluminum has a genotoxic profile that can cause DNA alterations and epigenetic effects (gene activity that is not caused by changes in the DNA sequence). This is why it has been said that the genetic mutation caused by aluminum MIGHT BE a contributing factor in breast cancer. Please note doctors will argue that there is not conclusive science to support this and I am a believer in science but what I will say is that if it suspicious (and it is) my advice (especially on a product you use 7 days a week for years on end) is to avoid it out of precaution.
