According to a study from Researcher MV Heisterberg, the most frequent cause of contact dermatitis allergy is the fragrances in deodorants, and cosmetic products are the main cause of fragrance contact allergy. This study compared deodorants and fragrance mixes, and it led Heisterberg and colleagues to determine that deodorants were the leading causes of fragrance allergy. This is especially true among men.

Fragrance is not absolutely necessary to the function of a deodorant, and in fact, there are plenty of fragrance free deodorants on the market, which can help prevent contact dermatitis, asthma and allergies in general. It is also important to ask if there is a “masking agent” used to disguise the scent as these too are chemicals and do not remove the fragrance simply block the body’s ability to detect it. No Added Fragrance tells you there are no chemicals or fragrances found in the product.

Other research has also pointed out the seriousness of aluminum in most commercial deodorants. A percentage of people who are allergic to aluminum may also experience contact dermatitis when exposed to aluminum in deodorants. Non-aluminum deodorants and antiperspirants and deodorants are safer, according to current research.

It has been found that aluminum-based compounds used as active ingredients in antiperspirants form a temporary plug within the sweat duct, stopping the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface. Some research suggests that these aluminum-based compounds, typically applied frequently and also left on the skin near the breast tissue, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. As estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists believe that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to breast cancer.

Herbalix has formulated its Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant for this reason. For anyone who has been using a commercial deodorant or antiperspirant, simply check the label to see if it contains any type of aluminum, alum, petroleum or propylene glycol. These ingredients can lead to the buildup of chemicals under the arms, resulting in irritation, or worse. Antiperspirants may leave an alum salt residual in the underarm.

Herbalix Nighttime Cleansing Detox Deodorant cleanses away buildup to release waste fluids, encourages healthy lymphatic flow, and absorbs all types of aluminums, encouraging a reduction in daytime odors.
