Why you should say goodbye to your favorite antiperspirant and deodorant

We're all used to it - the antiperspirant and deodorant we buy from drugstores and convenience stores. Our grandparents used them, our parents used them, and they taught us to use them...and, we've been using them for so long, why stop now?

In recent years, many people have switched from deodorant to a more natural one, and there are actually a number of reasons why...and that's mostly due to the main ingredient in antiperspirants - aluminum! However, the big question is: does it really fit?

Should you throw your favorite antiperspirant and deodorant out the window now?

What is the difference between antiperspirant and regular deodorant? Before we delve into the differences, let’s remember that antiperspirants and deodorants both serve the same function, which is to prevent or reduce body odor.

However, what sets them apart is the way they prevent or reduce body odor! The main goal of antiperspirants is to stop sweating completely, while deodorants can only help prevent body odor, not suppress sweating.

Antiperspirants stop armpit sweating due to their aluminum content. The aluminum salts found in antiperspirants help unclog underarm sweat glands and prevent sweating. Without moisture in your armpits, odor-causing bacteria have no food, and therefore no body odor.

Deodorants, on the other hand, use fragrance and antibacterial ingredients and properties to combat and reduce body odor.

Joi's natural deodorant uses compounds like baking soda, magnesium hydroxide, and arrowroot to support underarm microbiota while fighting odor-causing bacteria.

Because bacteria are blocked and the deodorant contains essential oils, you'll smell great all day long!

So why swap out your favorite antiperspirant for a natural deodorant? For a number of reasons, you should think twice before adding your favorite antiperspirant to your cart on your next shopping trip.

Disrupts your body's temperature regulation process. Sweating is the body's natural way of cooling down from overheating.

If your pores are clogged with aluminum, your body won't be able to cool down and will overheat.

Stimulate your forearms. Some people are actually sensitive or allergic to aluminum. If you are one of them, you may experience frequent irritation and rashes in your armpits.

Causes stains on clothes. Have you ever wondered why stains start to appear in the armpit area of your clothes over time? Well, the culprit isn’t sweat, it’s aluminum! When aluminum mixes with sweat, it creates a yellowish tinge that stains clothing and is difficult to remove.

Risk of breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

Antiperspirant use is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease, according to multiple previous studies.

However, no actual evidence has been provided to support this link, but it’s better to be safe than sorry, right?
