Antiperspirant VS Deodorant

Its no secret that I’m antiperspirant and slightly anti-deodorant (I’ll explain), antiperspirants are created to keep you from sweating! There is nothing normal or natural about NOT sweating, if you have read any of my past post on skin care and healthy living I encourage SWEAT, its needed to help detox and open pores not to mention it’s the body’s natural way of cooling off and alerting you that hydration and cooling down is needed.


Antiperspirants are designed to prevent the body from producing sweat, active chemicals are there to penetrate the skin and block sweat from reaching the surface. Aluminum is one of the active ingredient found in most antiperspirants. Aluminum blocks the pores so that sweat cannot pass through. Some types of antiperspirants contain forms of aluminum, which have been found to interact with sweat to cause yellow staining on clothes. We have all seen this before on a friend or ourselves and wondered where the yellow came from. Well, mix an aluminum complex and sweat and there is the answer.


In addition it changes the microbial life that lives on you. New research finds that antiperspirant and deodorant can significantly influence both the type and quantity of bacterial life found in the human armpit’s “microbiome.” Antiperspirants and deodorant affect the bacterial balance in your armpits, which actually leads to more pungent-smelling sweat.


Additionally, some dyes and fragrances found in antiperspirants and deodorants have been seen to cause allergic reactions and skin irritations.  This is another reason to go ‘natural’ if you can.


Some natural deodorants are Tom’s, Milk Cosmetics & Crystal Deodorant Stick, to name a few.
