Why use aluminum-free deodorants?

Sweating is a completely natural mechanism of our body that fulfills two essential functions: eliminating toxins and regulating our body temperature.

Sweat does not smell bad. But why do we say that sweat smells bad? Although it may seem so, sweat does not smell bad, in fact it has no odor at all. It is the bacteria that accumulate in the sweaty areas of the body that cause this characteristic and undesirable odor.


The vast majority of deodorants we know are formulated with ingredients harmful to health such as parabens, phthalates, synthetic perfumes or aluminum.And although they are allowed, there are numerous studies that recommend eliminating them from our daily routine mainly because of their toxicity.

Among all these components, Aluminum Chlorohydrate is undoubtedly the most worrisome. It is an aluminum salt that penetrates the skin and is used as an antiperspirant.

"Deodorants that contain aluminum salts in their formulation occlude the sweat glands, forming a film with the sweat that occludes the exit orifice of the gland."

There is much talk about the relationship of the use of antiperspirants with diseases such as Alzheimer's, Autism or Breast Cancer and, although none of the studies conducted are inconclusive, we always recommend opting for cosmetics that respect our body and do not compromise the health of our skin.

How can we know if our deodorant is formulated with aluminum?


In the product ingredients it may appear as Aliminium Chlorhydrate (Aluminum Chlorhydrate), Aluminium Zirconium (Penta-Chlorhydrate) or any ingredient beginning with 'alum'.
