Make One Change June 2019: Wear a Natural Deodorant

There is conflicting evidence about the use of aluminium in deodorants, and there is little-to-none research on all the other chemical ingredients in deodorant. So in the interests of “progress, not perfection” the change this month is to switch to a natural deodorant. There are many reasons for this beyond the scare campaigns:

  1. It is better for the environment if we are lathering ourselves with wholesome, natural, ingredients. Many of these company’s are also ethical and sustainable, and are choosing their packaging accordingly.
  2. We don’t know what we don’t know. Many of the chemical ingredients in deodorants haven’t been around that long and we just don’t know their effect on us.
  3. Many deodorants contain fragrance, which we already know is an ambiguous term for god-knows-what.
  4. We want to use our dollars to change the world. That is the whole purpose of this program. Wouldn’t you rather Shea plantations over aluminium mines? Coconut fields over chemical laboratories? Your dollars are more effective than your votes!

JUNE | Use a natural deodorant! Even if the deodorant is marketed as natural, look out for the following ingredients: Aluminium (any kind: I have found "aluminium free" deodorants with an aluminum derivative in them, so read the packet no matter what!) – This plugs our sweat ducts and stops us perspiring. There are links to breast cancer and we are applying this metal to our armpits daily with your 'traditional' deodorants. Parabens – This is a preservative and has links to breast cancer. Propylene Glycol – Potential respiratory issues can occur. This article has a great break down of many of the different natural deodorants available: https://www.floraandfauna.com.au/blog/why-natural-deodorant/ @floraandfaunaau Some great other online stores with natural options include: @innerorigin https://7bpj.app.link/Wue0yfiwHW @biomestores @nourishedlife @nopong.deodorant @three_mamas @woohoobody @naturaldeoco @benandannauk #makeonechangejun19

Aluminium and Breast Cancer | studies are inconclusive, however there is evidence that locally applied cosmetics could contribute to cancer development because of their effect on hormones… "Aluminium is known to have a genotoxic profile, capable of causing both DNA alterations and epigenetic effects, and this would be consistent with a potential role in breast cancer if such effects occurred in breast cells. Results reported here demonstrate that aluminium in the form of aluminium chloride or aluminium chlorhydrate can interfere with the function of oestrogen receptors of MCF7 human breast cancer cells both in terms of ligand binding and in terms of oestrogen-regulated reporter gene expression. This adds aluminium to the increasing list of metals capable of interfering with oestrogen action and termed metalloestrogens…" Full article: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16045991/ #makeonechangejun19
