Sometimes it seems like all the products we use on a daily basis, whether food or cosmetics, now come with a health warning attached. You may remember the scare a few years ago, when links were made between aluminium chlorohydrate in deodorants and breast cancer in women.
While there has been no conclusive evidence to prove a link, it is known that the daily application of such products can result in a build-up of the substance in body tissues. Such a build-up may not cause serious illness, but it can leave your skin dry and irritated, particularly when the deodorant also contains alcohol.
So, if you prefer to err on the side of caution and avoid aluminium chlorohydrate completely, or if you simply want happier skin, you will be pleased to know that Dermalogica’s Environmental Control Deodorant contains neither aluminium chlorohydrate nor alcohol.
Instead, this deodorant uses plant-derived extracts to neutralise body odour and the bacteria that cause it, and it does this without using a synthetic smell to cover up own your body’s. It is easily absorbed into the skin, and leaves no residue, so you will not have to worry about staining your clothes, either!
If you are looking for a simple, effective product that will be kind to your underarms, give this deodorant a try… You won’t be disappointed!
