Protect your pits and possibly save your life.
Yes as outrageous as it may sound at first, protecting your arm pits is vital to longevity and ageless beauty.
Here’s what you need to know.
Anything you put on your pits is immediately absorbed into your skin and into your lymphatic system, and then the lymphatic system carries it throughout the body. This is exactly why it is vital, yes vital as in life saving vital, that you use deodorant products that do not have toxic ingredients.
The first ingredient that comes to mind is Aluminum, found in almost all antiperspirants. Aluminum is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimers.
In fact 50% of all breast cancers are in the upper quadrant of the breast, near the pit.
My Grandmother died of Alzheimers and I feel that it is one of the most horrendous diseases on this planet. I avoid everything and anything with Aluminum. That goes for cookware as well.
The other bad thing about an antiperspirant is that it stops your pits from sweating. That’s definitely not good, that’s one of the ways we get rid of toxins.
Other toxic ingredients found in deodorants:
Parabens – synthetic preservatives that disrupt hormones, linked to early puberty
Propylene glycol – Petroleum based ingredient show to damage central nervous system, liver and heart
Phthalates – lined to higher rate of birth defects
A couple of months ago my husband and I switched to an all natural, deodorant.
Pit Powder by Muddy H2O is a 100% natural, botanically based powder designed to reduce odor while encouraging your lymphatic system to release waste and toxins.
The ingredients are beautiful and familiar.
- Aluminum free baking soda
- Arrowroot powder
- Fenugreek seed powder
- Tea Tree
- Ylang ylang
I absolutely love it. Pit Powder smells great and most of all keeps me smelling great.
