We replaced the other deodorants in store with these AMAZING deodorants from SmartyPits! Formulated by the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, SmartyPits is 100% aluminum-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and propylene glycol-free. Every stick is hand poured in Bend, Oregon, and we give a portion of every sale back to breast cancer research and survivor support.
Explanation of the toxins found in deodorants (and other products!) on other store shelves:
Aluminum in deodorants builds up in your body and is what contributes to developing certain cancers. Parabens are known to disrupt hormone function, which also been linked to increased risk of breast cancer and reproductive toxicity. Pthalates are chemicals used to soften plastic and as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products, and it can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system. Propylene Glycol can cause central nervous system toxicity, hyperosmolarity, hemolysis, cardiac arrhythmia, seizures, agitation, and lactic acidosis.
