3 Reasons Men Should Switch to Natural Deodorant
For years, woman all over have been making the switch from aluminum-based antiperspirants and deodorants. Woman were encouraged to switch because aluminum exposure was linked to health issues such as breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Better to be safe, then sorry, right? At first, the options were slim. But over time, the market exploded and now we have excellent options like Native, Humble Brands, Schmidts, Attitude and new lines like Hume & Ambre.
But what about men? Do they have to worry? The short answer is, yes. Many conventional deodorants and antiperspirants contain chemicals like parabens, phthalates, aluminum compounds, and artificial fragrances. These chemicals have been linked to health concerns, including hormone disruption and potential carcinogenic effects for everyone. Switching to a natural deodorant reduces your exposure to these harmful substances.
Still not convinced? Here are 3 reasons to make the switch:
- Sweating is important for health: Many men’s deodorants and antiperspirants clog pores and prevent the body from sweating. Not good! Natural deodorants provide odor control without the health risks.
- Sweat doesn’t actually smell: It’s the bacteria on the skin combined with the sweat that causes the stink. Why not choose a natural option that absorbs moisture and eliminates odor-causing bacteria.
- No more pit stains: Aluminum is the culprit of those yellow pit stains. Since natural deodorants don’t contain Aluminum, once you detox it from your body, you can say good-bye to those ugly stains for good!
