Armpits Exposed

Calm down it's her armpit..

I delved into the natural deodorant market a couple of years ago, wanting to find a safer alternative to the conventional deodorant/antiperspirant. 

Unfortunately, Dangerous chemicals typically found in antiperspirants are aluminum-based compounds, propylene glycol, steareths, parabens and triclosan. These chemicals, especially the aluminum have been linked to breast cancer, autism and brain tumors.The concern here is that using these products day after day could make you sick.

While the National Cancer Institute says aluminum-based products may cause cancer, they have no conclusive evidence to link the two. So my thing is if you can find safer alternatives, go for it! Why take the risk?

I tried quite a few different brands until I found the one that kept me stink free. It's going to take you to do some research to find the right one that works with your body.

How does your deodorant rate?

I'm using:
Kiss My Face Summer Liquid Rock Roll-On Deodorant, 3-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 6)  
I love it! I have no stink issues =)

*I was not compensated in anyway. Just spreading the word

I've heard of this rock stuff and good to hear it works a it sounds intriguing! I use Dove deo as it suits me well, and Dove moisturises skin etc. but I suppose I was swayed by the marketing and found other deos didnt keep me smelling sweet! Might try and find a rock deo to try out!

I have tried so many different ones and have yet to find one I like.. I will have to check this out. Have you tried the Crystal Rock? I like it, but its still not as effective. Hmmm, all I know is I hope to switch to something more natural soon!
Cool Post!

This is good advice! I use Secret. Rexona is a huge no-no because it has a chemical that darkens underarms. :s
