Want to know more? We thought you might! Read on to explore why our Mamas prefer a natural, aluminium free deodorant, the benefits of a natural, pregnancy safe deodorant and the brand-new ingredients we’ve incorporated into our new pregnancy essential...
What’s The Difference Between a Natural, Pregnancy Safe Deodorant and Antiperspirant?
An essential part of our everyday routines, most of us apply deodorant or antiperspirant every day, sometimes multiple times throughout the day! Traditional antiperspirants contain aluminium, or aluminium-based ingredients that temporarily block your pores, stop you sweating and keep you dry. Although this might sound great, aluminium is considered a genotoxin, (a chemical that can cause changes to a cell that may lead to cancer) and a neurotoxicant(substance that negatively affects the nervous system). Although the research isn’t proven, there are studies to show these toxins can lead to changes in the brain impairing memory, energy, kidney, and liver function.
As you make the leap to a natural deodorant, you may notice some small side effects as you enter the detox phase...
What Is A Natural Deodorant Detox?
When transitioning to an aluminium free deodorant, your body will go through a transition phase as your body adapts to naturally deodorizing ingredients. In this transition phase you may experience increased odour, because your body is releasing the bacteria that has built up and has been previously blocking your pores.
But don't worry Mama! This transition typically only takes 2-4 weeks and can be helped by stepping up your showering game in the first week of use. Most people tend to give up their natural deodorant in the first 2 weeks as this is the time they smell the funkiest, however if you stick at it Mama, you’ll be saying hello to odourless, fresh, and protected pits in no time!
