So today/tonight I’m going to show what’s in the deodorants many of you use

So today/tonight I’m going to show what’s in the deodorants many of you use.
I personally stopped using these mainstream deodorants years ago after my investigation. I do recommend you do the same.
There are so many alternatives.
Parabens
Parabens are in many beauty products, so it’s not surprising to find them in most deodorants. They may cause reproductive damage and organ toxicity. They can be irritating to the skin and may cause allergic reactions.
Aluminum compounds
Aluminum is typically the main ingredient in many mainstream deodorants. It clogs your pores to prevent sweating, but it may affect hormone levels.
Silica
Silica is a known skin irritant. It may be contaminated with crystalline quartz, a known carcinogen.
Triclosan
Triclosan is a pesticide, according to the FDA, as it has antimicrobial properties. It kills both good and bad bacteria on the skin, and it may be a carcinogen.
Talc
Talc may contain asbestiform fibers, making it another known carcinogen.
Propylene Glycol
Propylene glycol, a known neurotoxin, may affect central nervous system, heart and liver health. It may also cause allergic reactions and be irritating to the skin, especially sensitive skin.
Steareths
Steareths, known carcinogens, are additives made from weakening harsh chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Fragrance
Fragrances can also be irritating to skin and cause allergic reactions. They may also cause organ toxicity.
TEA and DEA
Triethanolamine (TEA) and diethanolamine (DEA) are chemicals that may affect liver and kidney health. Both of these products are known carcinogens that have been banned in Europe.
Artificial colors
Some artificial colors and bleaches are known carcinogens that may also cause allergic reactions.
Reading ingredient labels is the number one defense we have for avoiding toxic ingredients.
