Lets answer the simple question first - what's the difference? Antiperspirant means to stop your body from sweating whereas deodorant simply stops your body from smelling. So for us, the bigger question being which one should I use, is easy and simple to answer. Deodorants are healthier for you and your body and personally, we don’t mind our body's natural function of sweating. It eliminates harmful ingredients and we still stay fresh.
What’s Wrong with Antiperspirants?
Antiperspirants are formulated with the purpose to prevent our bodies from sweating and they do this by using aluminum. Aluminum is a neurotoxin that actively plugs our body’s sweat ducts in our underarms. By inhibiting our body’s ability to release sweat, our bodies must find another route to detox toxins, regulate body temperature, and banish built-up pollution that can lead to breakouts, body odour and irritations.
On top of preventing our body from performing a natural function, scientists are in the middle of a huge debate on whether aluminum is safe to use due to potential links between aluminum exposure and cognitive impairments. Now, we aren’t sure if it’s true or not as more research is needed, but in the meantime it’s better to be safe than sorry by staying away from this precarious ingredient.
Naturally Neutralize Sweat with Deodorant
Deodorants are formulated to work with your body to neutralize odour. Instead of using aluminum to clog your pores, deodorants tend to use natural ingredients to kill bad smelling bacteria and neutralize odours caused by perspiration. Ingredients such as arrowroot powder, baking soda or vegetable ferment have naturally occurring properties preventing malodour to support our bodily functions while ensuring you smell fresh and ready to conquer the day.
And by supporting our bodies, we gain the benefits of sweating. Our bodies are able to go about their natural processes of detoxing unwanted build-up of toxins, environmental pollutants and regulating body temperature. Say goodbye to pesky breakouts as your sweat opens your pores and releases daily pollution.
