You’ve seen Kiss My Face’s roll on deodorant, but maybe you are wondering – what exactly does natural mean?
Well, for starters, it means no aluminum chlorohydrate! Aluminum, as in metal? That’s in my deodorant? I’m sure you’ve asked yourself those questions – I know I did at first.
Let’s go over what it all means when it comes to antiperspirants and more importantly, how you can benefit from using a deodorant with natural ingredients instead, such as Kiss My Face’s roll on.
Aluminum chlorohydrate is a simple form of aluminum-based salts that is used to provide wetness protection in antiperspirants. Antiperspirants contain aluminum chlorohydrate to kill odor causing bacteria and control sweat. However, during this process the aluminum makes a coat over sweat pores, therefore affecting the natural mechanism of sweating in the body.
Is aluminum chlorohydrate bad for you? It has been used in antiperspirants since the 1940’s, but has gained a bit of a bad reputation. This ingredient has in various studies been linked to cancer, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s however the evidence isn’t conclusive and the FDA stands by its current usage.
- Does Not Interfere with Sweat Mechanism.
If you use a roll on deodorant that does not have aluminum chlorohydrate, your body is free to release the toxins it’s looking to be rid of. We think that’s a good thing!
- No yellow stains on your white shirts.
Aluminum chlorohydrate blocks the sweat pores and produces a residue that makes your white shirts yellow, yuck! We prefer shirts with no stains, thank you!
Now what are you waiting for? Free your pits of aluminum chlorohydrate! They’ll thank you for it later.
