Perhaps you do not want to try making homemade deodorant. Perhaps for one reason or another homemade just doesn’t work for you. However, you still want a safe deodorant to use.

Did you know that deodorants can contain lots of unsafe ingredients? Most conventional deodorants contain: aluminum, parabens, propylene glycol, and phthalates and more.

Common Toxic Chemicals in Deodorant

Aluminum – A developmental and reproductive toxin.

Parabens – A reproductive toxin which disrupts hormones.

Propylene Glycol – An immunotoxin.

Fragrance – (can contain phthalates) Neurotoxin and immunotoxin, also a common allergen.

Sadly there’s many more chemicals in deodorants that are also toxic but those listed above are some of the big ones.

Once you realize all the crazy ingredients that are in deodorants, you likely want to switch to a safe deodorant option. I don’t blame you… deodorant are applied to your armpits which is directly where your lymph nodes are… not to mention apply deodorant just means those chemicals soak into your skin.

Homemade deodorant is a great option, but I get it… some people just are not the DIY type, some just do not have the extra time (although homemade is the easiest DIY out there!, or maybe you are just tired of looking for that perfect DIY deodorant recipe…

What do you use when you want a safe, toxin free deodorant that you can buy?
