Deodorants are an indispensable helper today. We use them every day. It is therefore necessary that they do not contain any toxic substances such as: parabens, xenoestrogens. We have included deodorants without these toxins in the category of antiestrogenic cosmetics and you can now choose from a wide selection of estrogen-free deodorants for both men and women.
Say goodbye to antiperspirants!
Sweat glands that are located in the armpits is one of the places through which waste substances leave the body but it is also an ingenious system that cools the body and therefore prevents our body from overheating. Antiperspirants have one task: to eliminate the sweat glands for a while. Simply put, it blocks the function of the sweat glands. One ( but not only) substance is aluminum chlorohydrate. It is an aluminum compound that penetrates the skin and subsequently the lymphatic system. Not only does this mechanically prevent sweating, but toxins that would normally naturally float out of the body begin to accumulate in the body.
Deodorants - what ingredients to avoid?
Deodorants are among the products we use every day and therefore it is important to focus on their ingredients. Unlike antiperspirants, deodorants do not prevent sweating, but only mask the smell of sweat with their scent.
Triclosans = endocrine disruptors = xenoestrogens = substances that upset our hormonal balance. They are added to detergents and some cosmetics as a disinfectant and antibacterial ingredient. Animal studies have shown that, in addition to endocrine disruption, their use can cause liver failure, tumors, or thyroid dysfunction. Triclosan has a similar molecular structure to the banned insecticide DDT. In 2014, its use in the cosmetic industry was banned in the EU, with some exceptions, such as deodorants, toothpastes and mouthwashes.
Like triclosans, parabens are hormone disruptors, xenoestrogens. They are synthetic preservatives that increase the durability of cosmetic products.
Aluminum and its salts - Occurs mainly in antiperspirants. It clogs sweat canals and thus reduces sweating, thus preventing the natural process of detoxification. Its use has been linked to breast cancer after several animal studies.
Propylene Glycol - A synthetic petroleum derivative found in cosmetics. It is intended to prevent the products from drying out and to enable greater absorption of other substances contained in the ingredients of the products. It is often associated with asthma and can cause changes in the brain, liver and kidneys. However, research is still in its infancy, and these negative effects have never been clearly demonstrated or refuted.
Fragrance, perfume - A mysterious ingredient in every deodorant. This mysterious mixture may contain androgen-killer (hormonal disruptor) phthalates.
We are still preparing products.
But you can look at other categories.
