Why use a natural paste and not an antiperspirant?
Antiperspirants stop your body from sweating by blocking your pores. Many store bought deodorants use leave aluminium salts in your body which are absorbed from the antiperspirant. Aluminium is a neurotoxin and has linked to Alzheimer’s disease. It’s also been found to disrupt your endocrine system by mimicking the hormone estrogen. Anything that can do this raises alarm bells in the breast cancer world. [source Woohoo]
How do I use a natural deodorant paste?
To apply the natural sensitive deodorant paste, scoop a small amount of paste out of the metal jar with your finger, and apply directly under your armpits. A small amount of paste goes a long way, so be sure not to take too much.
Does the thought of touching your armpits make you a little uneasy? That’s understandable, after becoming so accustomed to the convenience of plastic products, simply picking up that plastic roll on and applying, we forget that by doing so we are not doing any favours to our environment. If you’re ready to go plastic free but not ready to apply the paste directly with your fingertips, you can use a wooden applicator to spread the paste under your arms.
Whatever your method is, you’ll be not only happy you’ve chosen the plastic free path, but you can also be assured that you are applying an all natural, chemical free product to your body. A product that works!
