You know you should use natural deodorant but you are worried- does natural deodorant actually work? You’ve heard about the concerns of commercial deodorants being linked to Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. But you’re a sweater and that natural stuff won’t work for you. And you maybe right, it may not work for you… at first. I’ll explain why.
So sweating is the bodies’ way of regulating its temperature. You sweat when your body needs to cool off. The great news is, sweat (yes, even your sweat) does not stink. The problem starts when sweat comes in content with bacteria. Bacteria like to gather in your pits. So when your sweat hits your pits, you’ve got some odor issues.
Sweat + bacteria = BO!
Bacteria are the problem and commercial deodorants and antiperspirants tackle this with chemicals and aluminum. The aluminum clogs your pores and prevents sweat from hitting the air, thus keeping you “dry” and odor free.
Great, right? No. I’ll address the aluminum and paraben controversy in another post. The problem is your body still needs to sweat and will sweat to regulate your temperature. It just may be other places than your pits, which actually makes you sweat more. Also, the aluminum and chemicals stick around. They hang out in your pores and build up over time.
So when you make the decision to try natural deodorant, you’re body expels all of the built up residue and chemicals in your pits. The bad news, while this detox process is going on you are going to STINK and much faster than you would with commercial deodorant. In other words, you natural deodorant will not protect you for the entire day. Now for the good news, this detox process is pretty quick (2 – 5 days) and if you are proactive during this process you’ll smell fresh all day.
