Opt for Natural Deodorants

Did you know that traditional deodorants contain aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium? Aluminum is an effective antiperspirant, and it often makes up 25 percent of some deodorants. However, aluminum may have some health risks associated with it. Although it has not been proven, aluminum may be to blame for increasing estrogen levels in women and causing breast cancer. If you want to be completely sure that the deodorant you’re applying is safe, choose a natural one that contains organic ingredients and scents. Some brands include Trader Joe’s, Tom’s of Maine, Burt’s Bess and Dr. Hauschka, and you can sometimes find these at your local grocery store.
