Most common cosmetic products contain a wide variety of irritants, hormone disrupters, carcinogens and other nasties. There are a wide variety of environment and human friendly alternatives available, but you may not find them in your local supermarkets and convenience stores, and you may have to visit a health food store or order online.
Great video clip. Thanks. There is so many things that are bad for us in products we use on a daily basis. I drive myself crazy reading labels. The advertising is so misleading. Always claiming to be organic or natural. Concumer beware!
I suppose I should have phrased my question as
"Why in the fuck do I need aluminum in deodorant? "
I'm not asking to be wrapped in tin foil like left over turkey.
I just don't want to smell like ass!
Simply put, you don't need aluminium, but it is a cheap and effective way to kill the bacteria that cause BO; shame it's toxic to humans too! There are mineral-based alternatives that work well, such as PitRok.
