Steer Clear Of Toxic Chemicals With These Natural Deodorants

We've Got An Under Army Of Expert-Approved Deodorants To Try Now

Did you know that skin absorbs 60%-70% of what’s put on it?

We talked to Women's Health + Wellness Expert Aimee Raupp, who is based in NYC, about upgrading the personal care products we choose to use in our daily lives. “Many skincare products including deodorants are made up of chemicals considered to be endocrine disruptors. Endocrine-disrupting chemicals, when applied to skin, get into your bloodstream and disrupt hormones; hormone disruption can lead to autoimmune diseases and cancer.” So if you’re looking to get a start on a more clean routine, Aimee suggests starting with anything used on a daily basis, such as deodorant or facial moisturizer.

Frank Lipman, MD, is a pioneer of functional medicine and recommends avoiding the following 18 chemicals commonly found in personal/skincare products:

DEA (Diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), TEA (Triethanolamine)
Glycol Ethers
Pthlates and Parabens
FD & C Color Pigments
Imidazolidinyl Urea and DMDM Hydantoin
Isopropyl Alcohol
Mineral Oil
PEG (Polyethylene Glycol)
Propylene Glycol
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Triclosan Talc Petrolatum
