Many people think that antiperspirant and deodorant are the same thing. However, they are in fact not the same thing. The difference is deodorant allows perspiration and suppresses the unpleasant smell of sweat, while antiperspirant, contains chemicals that clog the pores and prevent the sweating.
The mass media is forcing advertisements upon us that say when we don’t use an antiperspirant we insult the people around us.
Some people even when using deodorant feel uncomfortable. Even though it prevents the unpleasant smell, because they sweat, they think that they are just mixing the smell of the deodorant with the smell of sweat.
If we look at the scientific findings, we will see that most of the deodorants not only camouflage the smell of sweat, but because of their antiseptic ingredients they destroy the bacteria causing the unpleasant smell.
The negative consequences for your health
Deodorants and antiperspirants can both have serious consequences for your health.
Many medical field experts believe that the prevention of sweating is not healthy, because sweating is a natural way to cool down your body temperature.
Even more terrifying is the fact that the chemical found in the antiperspirants for example aluminum can cause many serious diseases including cancer.
Several studies have found a correlation between breast cancer and regular use of antiperspirants. The risk is even bigger if the antiperspirant is used immediately after shaving.
The aluminum, absorbed through the skin, goes into the bloodstream and then accumulates in the brain. This phenomenon has beenconnected with the increase in Alzheimer’s disease, by scientists.
It was believed that deodorant is much safer than antiperspirant. However recent studies have confirmed the association of parabens with breast cancer. The parabens are contained in many deodorants. A simple example, is the autopsy of a woman dying from breast cancer, in which high amount of parabens were found in her breast tissue.
By now, you should have your concerns regarding this issue.
We recommend using natural products and eco cosmetics.Most of us don’t like to admit the fact that we let some “cosmetic giants” brainwash us with commercials and advertisements about “organic foods” and “bio-natural” foods, but all they have from the organic and bio natural origin is their names, because, they have no trace of natural ingredients. Don’t let them fool you. Gather information about the products and the company that produces them, read the ingredients, and avoid becoming a victim of certain lobbies!
