You will be shocked when you see that your favorite deodorants are loaded with all kinds of harmful chemicals.I think that we all know that the skin is the largest organ in the human body and it’s absorbing all kinds of nutrients and particles from its surface. It’s because we all use all kinds of cosmetic products, creams, make up and other beauty products. So, our skin is absorbing all of these products, which usually contain high amounts of harmful chemicals. These are the most common chemicals found in many different cosmetic products, deodorants and antiperspirants.

  – Some Of The Toxins Found In Almost Every Deodorant:

 1 – Propylene glycol:

Propylene glycol is also known as antifreeze. You should know that this ingredient can cause damage to the central nervous system, liver, and heart. It is known to cause skin irritations in very small amounts (2 percent or less), but still, some deodorants contain 50 percent propylene glycol content.

 2 – Phthalates:

Phthalate is known endocrine disruptor that has also been linked to infertility in men. Besides deodorants, phthalates can also be found in plastic products.

 3 – Triclosan:

Triclosan is a chemical, which is used as an antibacterial agent and preservative in deodorants, and reacts with tap water to create a chloroform gas, which is a potential carcinogen. Triclosan is also a known endocrine disruptor.

 4 – Aluminum:

First, you should know that aluminum compounds are added to deodorants in order to prevent sweating. Many experts have linked this harmful compound to Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer in women, and prostate cancer in men. Aluminum also disrupts the endocrine system. And this is really bad for all of us, because we have major lymph nodes right next to the armpit area.

 5 – Formaldehyde:

You should know that formaldehyde is the same chemical compound, which is used to preserve deceased bodies.

 6 – Parabens:

The experts say that parabens are preservatives and antiperspirants that disrupt hormonal balances and cause early puberty in children. In a study conducted in 2004, parabens were found in 18 of 20 samples of tissue from human breast tumors, which is a serious sign of the cancer-causing properties of these chemicals.
