You Should Know This before Using or Switching to Natural Deodorants
Everyone sweats. It’s your body’s internal air conditioning system to cool and maintain a safe temperature.
Initially, sweat is odorless but when it mixes with some bacteria on the skin surface, it results in body odor. And that’s why we use deodorants to prevent that stink.
These days, regular deodorants are loaded with toxic chemicals like alcohol, aluminum, and parabens. These clog your sweat glands and prevent sweating.
However, even when you try to block the release of toxins, your skin absorbs these chemicals. Prolonged use can harm your delicate underarm skin and lead to hormonal imbalance and abnormal cell growth.
Using natural, healthier deodorants may just be an answered prayer. Let’s delve deeper into why you should err on the side of caution and make the switch today.
What Is Natural Deodorant?
Natural deodorants are typically free of artificial and harmful ingredients like aluminum, phthalates, and parabens. Instead, depending on the brand, they usually contain solely natural ingredients.
Common ingredients include essential oils, baking soda, natural oils or butters, bentonite clay, and starch power like arrowroot powder or cornstarch. You can find this in our Sensitive Pits Natural Deodorant.
These gentle ingredients work throughout the day to target odor-causing bacteria and absorb excess sweat.
What You Should Expect When Switching To Natural Deodorant
If you swap commercial deodorants and antiperspirants for natural ones after a long period of use, you can expect to undergo a detox phase.
That’s because your underarm skin is getting accustomed to the natural deodorant. And this transition period doesn’t happen overnight.
Depending on your body chemistry, the detox may last for 2-4 weeks. At first, you may not notice any difference, but after a while, you experience more sweating and smell. This is your body’s way of flushing out all the trapped toxins.
By the 3rd week of use, your skin bacteria and moisture levels should adjust to the natural deodorant. And by week 4, your body fully regulates itself to allow the natural deodorant neutralize daily body odor.
Some people may find this detox stage daunting and believe natural deodorants don’t work for them. But it’s worth it in the end because it’s a healthier choice and it does get the job done.
