Our Lymph system works really hard to grab and filter out toxins in the body. One of the areas we have a cluster of lymph nodes is in the underarm. Most deodorants have aluminum which can be toxic. When my Grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer's I found out that aluminum contributes to the onset of Alzheimer's. Your body absorbs this aluminum through cooking products and skincare products that contain aluminum. When it is absorbed into the skin it then gets trapped because normal deodorants have antiperspirants that keep you from sweating which is the body's natural way to detox. This process taps toxins in the skin and clog the Lymph Nodes. Some scientist are saying that parabens mimic the action of estrogen and are linked to Breast Cancer. This had me searching for non-toxic brands to try. While I have not tried a lot, I will admit, most could not hold up to the smell test. Since I am always running around I like to feel clean and fresh.
"The deodorant has no aluminum, alcohol, fragrance, dye, or parabens and is 100% vegan."~~30SomeWeeks.comAs a Pitch List member I was asked to review 30 Some Weeks and their deodorants. I was skeptical but willing to try since they had no toxins. I was sent both the roll-on and the cream. The next day I had a run early in the morning and thought I would try out the roll on. When I got back from my 3 mile run I was sure that I would be a hot mess. I was surprised that it stood up to the test. I used the roll for the next 3 days and was very pleased with my results. I then tried the cream for the next week, and was very happy to have a deodorant that kept me dry and without any odors. I have used this deodorant the entire month of October and was so pleased that I have finally found a deodorant that is NON-TOXIC and WORKS!
