We love to smell good, feel soft and silky, and be primped to perfection. Although these products make you look great American cosmetic companies are allowing harmful chemicals into our beloved products. The cosmetic industry is self-regulated and allows companies include harmful chemicals, 89% of which have not been tested by the FDA. The aluminium in deodorant has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and the application of deodorant may be linked to breast cancer. Deodorants are not washed off and the harmful chemicals can collect in the arm pit and upper breast area. Until the FDA begins to regulate deodorants, try natural alternatives that can be found at Swanson.
