We’ve been trying a lot of different natural deodorants lately and can say we’ve been pleasantly surprised. After years of ineffective crystals and pastes that leave you stinky enough to not want to hang out with even yourself, we’re pretty happy those days are behind us.
But why would you use a natural deodorant over the easily available, conveniently packaged aluminium spray? Well first up if you haven’t Google it! There are hundreds of reports on the potential harmful effects of using aluminium sprays, and as a woman the main one is the link to breast cancer. Many experts in health have spoken about the higher risk of contracting breast cancer because of using aluminium deodorants. Clinical studies have shown a disproportionately high incidence of breast cancer in the upper breast tissue near the arm pit, evidence suggesting the link between the two. Aluminium is a metal and is in more products used every day than you’d care to know. It is known to be capable of DNA alterations and unlike other elements, the body does not need it. So why feed your body something it has no need for when there are plenty of effective other options?
That’s where Woohoo! Body All Natural Deodorant Paste comes in. It is a natural deodorant on the market that does the job of masking any unwanted scents, leaving you smelling fresh. It truly works for even the sweatiest of people due to the unique blend of odour busting ingredients. There are four powerful ingredients that are used to protect against body odour plus it helps control wetness by absorbing moisture. We’re also big fans because this one comes in a white paste but doesn’t leave any white marks and certainly no annoying yellow stains. Plus it’s extra gentle if you have sensitive skin.
Each little red tub is full of the creamy, white paste that smells simple and fresh. It easily melts once applied to the arm pit and is designed to be unisex so you and your man can get involved. We’ve tried this one out on the guys too and it works! Probably the only downside, much like all natural deodorants, is that it is a little more hands on than your usual aluminium spray. You need to scrap out the paste but once on your underarm it warms up and spreads easily. For the price of being able to cut aluminium from your life it really is a small price to pay.
Woohoo! Body All Natural Deodorant is not only natural but is 51% Organic and Vegan plus has no aluminium sales, phthalate or parabens.
