Going Green With Organic Deodorants || Make That Life-Saving Switch

Going green is a broad approach, it’s a conscious choice,and for those of us who are trying to minimize our exposure to harsh chemicals through our diet and lifestyle, beauty and personal care products follow the same path as well…After all there exists chemical ingredients in them that gets absorbed in our systems and end up affecting our health and well being just like the foods we consume or the quality of water we drink!

CIIN introduces the case of the ‘deodorant’..To begin with, most people choose their deodorants based on their fragrances and the power of sweat and bad odor elimination..

Those are the traditional and commercial formulas, mostly ‘antiperspirant’.. On the other hand there are the ‘aluminium—paraben-free’ ones that are usually rare to find, the reason behind that is the risk and fear of sweating a little more than usual. It’s crucial to realise that the aluminum in your deodorant is linked to health issues, most notably breast cancer. Many of us ignore the troubling issues of our trusted roll-ons..

The Difference Between Antiperspirant And Deodorant?

the terms ‘antiperspirant’ and ‘deodorant’ are often used interchangeably but they do in fact refer to different products. Antiperspirants control sweat and body odour (B.O.) in two ways: firstly by preventing sweat reaching the skin surface and secondly by reducing the bacteria that causes body odour via antimicrobial ingredients. Deodorants differ from antiperspirants as they only contain antimicrobial agents to prevent body odour; they do not control the flow of sweat. Both antiperspirants and deodorants often contain fragrances to help mask the smell of B.O.

*B.O.: body odor

Antiperspirants typically use aluminum in some form. If you check your roll-on, you’ll probably find the active ingredient is something with a long, scientific name like aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex or aluminum chlorohydrate. The aluminum in antiperspirant creates a temporary little plug in your armpit sweat glands, which is what keeps you from getting super sweaty.

CIIN provides these natural deodorant picks, note that they won't prevent perspiration, but they will keep you feeling and — most importantly — smelling fresh throughout the day.
