Deodorant:

What to avoid:

  • Fragrance can hide all sorts of toxins.  It can be harmful to organs and irritate skin, eyes, and lungs.
  • Butane can irritate skin, eyes, and lungs.  It’s also toxic to organs.
  • Benzyl Salicylate is a endocrine (hormone) disruptor.
  • Potential link between aluminum found in antiperspirant and breast cancer/tumors.

Switch to Safer: Aromaguard Meadow (or Mountain) Mist Deodorant

 

 

 

Lotion:

What to avoid:

  • Fragrance is a broad term used by companies to hide all sorts of chemicals and toxins.  Depending on its specific (and, unfortunately, unknown) ingredients, fragrance has links to dermatitis, allergies, and respiratory issues.   It also may negatively impacts on the reproductive system.
  • Phthalates (especially diethyl phthalate) are endocrine disrupters that are linked to reproductive birth defects, earlier breast development in girls, and a higher risk for breast cancer.  This toxin may hide under the ingredient “fragrance”.
  • Propylene glycol is a penetrator and skin irritant.  It has been linked to dermatitis and hives.
