~Why choose a deodorant over an antiperspirant?
Almost every antiperspirant on the market contains nasty amounts of aluminum and chemicals to stop you from perspiring. Our underarm area allows the body to cleanse and detoxify itself along with helping to regulate the body’s temperature by the release of sweat. Blocking this natural mechanism with an anti-perpirant could cause a build up of toxins in your system that can aggravate and possibly cause serious problems.
**Our Propylene Glycol is a USDA Certified Biobased Product Label, ensuring the product contains 100% biobased content. It is made from Soy and/or Corn and has been used in our deodorant since December of 2011.
