The number one question I get from clients and my followers about switching up/detoxing products is ….
I have gone through so many brands. Truth be told… it’s HARD to find a nontoxic deodorant that WORKS. First off, sweating is ok! It is actually a normal process and a good process for the body. The fact that we have normalized keeping sweat from coming from our armpits is NOT healthy. Our bodies need to release sweat as part of the detox process. Aluminum in conventional deodorants is the ingredient we can thank for that.
It is SO important for women (and men) to be using a toxin free deodorant.
In case you aren’t aware, the breasts are very close to the armpits. What you put under the arm is absorbed and directly goes into your bloodstream. It takes 26 seconds for a product to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
We have lymph nodes in that area and everything works together, but toxins interfere with those systems. It might not seem like a big deal, but trust me, it’s a huge deal.
The products we are using are affecting our hormones.
Think of how fast it adds up. Let’s say you have 13 chemicals in your shampoo, 9 in your body wash, 7 in your moisturizer, 27 in your laundry detergent, and 5 in your deodorant. (that is only listing a few products that we all use on a daily basis)
This is adding up to create what we call “body burden.” Preservatives, fragrance, and other carcinogenic by products disrupt our bodies and keep us from functioning at our best. Detoxing your products can not only make a significant difference in your physical health, this also impacts your mental health.
When our hormones are off, our body suffers in so many ways.
I recommend starting with deodorant because along with detergent, it is the most practical switch to make! And if you have pre-teens or teens, it’s the best time to get them started with a safe product.
I personally love Primally Pure. They have organic ingredients and their standards are super high. I am all about products that perform too. This deodorant is the best I have found and my whole family uses it.
I prefer the Charcoal if you feel like you need to combat some mega body odor and Blue Tansy works so well and is my favorite scent. Use the code Tabitha10 to save 10%! Share with me what scent you got, and let’s start detoxing those personal care items so that we can feel our best! www.primallypure.com
