Aluminum is the active ingredient in “most” antiperspirants (not ours) and is used to keep underarms fresh. This is how aluminum works:  Aluminum salts—in the form of aluminum chloride, aluminum zirconium, aluminum chlorohydrate and aluminum hydroxybromide—prevent us from sweating when aluminum ions are drawn into the cells in sweat ducts, causing the cells to swell and squeezing the ducts closed so sweat cannot get out. Our skin was made to breath and cleanse toxins from our bodies. It’s not natural to use something on our pits that cause our sweat ducts to close.

Here at oneBody Co. we use arrowroot in our underarm armor which naturally absorbs sweat keeping you dry. You may feel a little moisture (every body is different) but we have not yet seen or heard from any of  our test subjects that the moisture transmitted to their clothes. A little moisture is ok because that just means your body is working the way it should be-naturally disposing toxins.

Another thing about aluminum (although studies are not yet definitive)  but studies have shown it has a neurotoxin that has been linked to breast cancer and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.

The most concerning risk factor in using deodorants with aluminum—is long-term exposure. Every day long term exposure is one reason I looked for another alternative.  It made sense to me to stop using chemical ridden deodorants and then out of that a company was born—oneBody Co.    Introducing:  Underarm Armor!   I know you’ll enjoy it.
