What does the aluminum in the deodorant do? The fact that aluminum is used for packaging and cans may sound obvious and not surprising, but the use of metallic additives in deodorant itself raises questions - and problems. In principle, aluminum salts in deodorants compress the skin pores and thus minimize perspiration. But they have negative long-term effects that have not yet been explored even partially.
Sweating is a natural process that has fundamentally important functions: it regulates the body temperature during great exertion and thus ensures a physiological balance. The same applies to illness and fever. With the sweat, toxins and waste products are also expelled from the body. If the pores are sealed, however, the toxic mixture builds up and accumulates in the organism.
There is increasing evidence that aluminum in deodorants is linked to cancer and Alzheimer's. In addition, aluminum is irritating to the skin and a possible cause of skin irritation, intolerance and allergies.
In contrast, an organic deodorant without aluminum fulfills its purpose as an odor neutralizer just as well, and in a completely natural way and without interfering with the healthy regulatory mechanisms of the body.
Our myrto organic deodorants are not only aluminum-free, but also contain no preservatives and skin-weakening emulsifiers and thus go well beyond common natural cosmetics standards. Two of the myrto deodorants are alcohol-free for particularly sensitive skin and can be used directly after shaving your armpits. The purely vegan organic deodorants without aluminum from myrto-naturalcosmetics rely exclusively on ingredients of plant origin, essential oils and pure plant extracts, which achieve excellent results and are generally very well tolerated by sensitive and allergy-prone skin.
