Our arm pits are areas of skin with large pores, which increases absorption and therefore the risk of exposure to toxic chemicals. Considering your breasts are near our arm pits we should be vigilant about avoiding chemicals here! For example, studies show that many breast tumors contain parabens in them which is why the link is being made between parabens and breast cancer. Other common harmful ingredients are fragrances and aluminum.
So if many commercial deodorants are filled with fragrances, parabens, and aluminum, are the now-common "natural" deodorants the answer? Those so-called "natural deodorants" usually contain ingredients like propylene glycol which has linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive issues, allergies/immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity and endocrine disruption.
There are many great home-made deodorant recipes
out there for those who have the time. They usually contain baking soda to help with dryness and herbs or essential oils to combat bacteria which produces odor. Essential Oils like tea tree can be highly effective at killing underarm bacteria.
