There are a number of lymph nodes situated in and around the underarm area. It is very possible that continual use of deodorant and antiperspirant containing aluminium and parabens, applied so closely to the lymph nodes, could leak into our system over time causing the following: skin irritation; clogging pores; dryness; allergies; destruction of the natural oily barrier and the increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer.
The deodorants that you buy in your local store contain many harmful chemicals that will contaminate your body and irritate your skin. Toxins like parabens, phthalates, and propylene glycol are found in these deodorants,
Here are some of the most common ingredients found in your deodorant.
Aluminium can cause breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Triethanolamine (TEA) & Diethanolamine (DEA). These two chemicals could be toxic if absorbed into the body over long periods of time. TEA is a definite cause of allergies. DEA is known to cause kidney and liver dysfunction.
Propylene Glycol This chemical has been used as an anti-freeze and has been the main culprit in dermatitis, liver damage, and kidney damage. Propylene can cause eye and skin irritation, gastrointestinal irritation and central nervous depression. In large quantities, studies have shown that it can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver and heart.
Triclosan due to its anti-bacterial properties is one of the chemicals used in deodorants to kill odours. It is also commonly used in antibacterial soaps, hand wipes, and gels. However, Triclosan is a FDA certified pesticide and plausible carcinogen.
Parabens are synthetic preservatives that are found in almost EVERY commercialised body care product on the market. Parabens have a high absorption rate and have the ability to destroy our fragile hormonal balance. Hormonal imbalance has been known to cause premature puberty in children and high rates of hormonal cancers.
Fragrance may look like an innocent ingredient but don’t judge a fragrance by its smell. Fragrance in your deodorant is actually a sheep in wolf’s clothing. This ingredient can legally be a disguise for over 3,000 very dangerous chemicals. One of these chemicals is phthalates or “plasticizers”. These are chemical compounds that mimic our hormone structure which can cause a disruption in our hormone receptors. High amounts of phthalates in our bloodstream will effect reproductive health, increase the risk of birth defects and increase cell deformities.
Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) Mostly used as a food preservative, BHT slows down the liver’s capability to metabolise alcohol. High consumption of bread or alcoholic beverages is not recommended if you are exposing yourself to high amounts of BHT. So, imagine how much deodorant you use in a year and how BHT is restricting your liver from functioning properly.
