This spring Primally Pure is encouraging you to ditch one toxic product for their #daretocomparechallenge. For me, getting rid of my traditional aluminum filled deodorant was the best choice that I ever made, not only for my health in general, but also for my skin.
For years I had been dealing with less than clear skin under my arms, and it wasn’t just from shaving irritation… it turns out it was mostly caused by the deodorants I was using. No matter the brand, I would always see the same item on the ingredients list… aluminum. While this ingredient works to block the pores that produce sweat, I never liked the idea putting a product with toxic ingredients like aluminum on my skin. Another source of my irritation came from the added fragrance, a common issue for those of us with especially sensitive skin.
So in 2018 after trying several different brands of natural deodorants that just didn’t make the cut, I found the one that did… Primally Pure.
They have several different options to choose from…
One of the big no-no’s I was definitely guilty of before switching to natural deodorant was applying the deodorant right after shaving. This is one of the worse things you can do. Read more tips over on the Primally Pure blog in their post 6 Tips for Preventing Armpit Irritation.
