"Deodorant/Antiperspirant is the one product used by every adult, daily, and from early on and yet the popular commercial brands continue to contain some of the most harmful ingredients! Although public awareness and appetite for natural alternatives are constantly on the rise, there are not many deodorants on the market that are both “safe” and “effective”. Therein lies our value proposition: We specialize in a toxin-free and hypoallergenic deodorant for pregnant women, which of course is also suitable for any health-conscious person regardless of gender or age. The deodorant has no aluminum, alcohol, fragrance, dye, or parabens and is 100% vegan. And unlike most “natural” deodorants, it works!"
I have to say I am really loving my natural deodorants. I have a few and was really excited to add this one to the collection. DeodoMom offers a vegan alternative to commercial deodorants which contain harmful chemicals! The best part? The natural ones tend to work better than leading commercial products!
That was the case for me with DeodoMom. I loved using the roll on or the cream (I'd never tried cream before and I found that I liked it a lot!). I only had to apply once in the morning and I was good for the day. As you might know I live in Hawaii and October is one of the hottest months of the year, so anytime I step out the door I pretty much immediately start sweating!
There is a lot that is not known about aluminum absorption in the body, like how it is affecting us, and what kind of dysfunctions it could be causing. However, there have been studies indicating that high levels of aluminum can lead to kidney shut down, and abnormal fetal development. You can read more about aluminum and the human body at the DeodoMom website.
Although it has not been proven that aluminum can lead to medical problems, and parabens are still approved by the FDA, I like to play it safe and know that there is no chance what I am putting on my body is harmful in any way. If I get pregnant in the future, I know I will stick to natural cosmetics!
