We tend to buy skin care products that are full-packed with chemicals, and these tend to have a devastating effect on our health. Did you know that your deodorant is made with harsh chemicals?
If you know someone who uses the Axe deodorant for men, just have them read this article.
Men are lured into thinking that Axe is an amazing product, and this is supported by the fake theory suggesting that the deodorant makes men more attractive to women. Yeah, right. Women hate Axe! But, this is not the worst aspect of this product.
Axe deodorants contain endocrine disruptors which actually affect the production of hormones, and create a total mess in the body.
“Endocrine disruptors have effects on male and female reproduction, breast development and cancer, prostate cancer, neuroendocrinology, thyroid, metabolism and obesity, and cardiovascular endocrinology,” explain experts at Endocrine Society.
Did you know that Axe contains BHT?
It’s an antimicrobial preservative that’s easily absorbed in the skin. It’s linked to the development of cancer, organ damage, and reproductive toxicity.
Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly
Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly is the active antiperspirant ingredient in Axe deodorants. It’s added to stop sweating within 24 hours after the application. The bad news is that aluminum ions end up in the body, and trigger the development of breast cancer, nerve damage, kidney damage, and Alzheimer’s disease.
It creates foam and nitrosamines. Well, you may like the foaming effect, but nitrosamines are the last thing you need in your body. They are carcinogenic, and science has confirmed that these can cause over 40 types of cancer.
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether
When kept dry for too long, your armpits accumulate static cling, and the PPG-14 Bustyl Ether reduces it. But, research has shown that 99% of breast cancer tissues contain it.
This paraben belongs to the group of toluene derivatives, and these cause reproductive and developmental toxicity.
Instead of using your Axe, try some natural alternatives or make your own all-natural deodorant.
