What's The Difference Between Deodorant And Antiperspirant?

What's the difference between Deodorants and Antiperspirants?

That's fairly simple. Deodorants are substances applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by bacterial breakdown. Deodorants are also frequently applied to the feet and other areas of the body, as in deodorant body sprays, to prevent body odor. Antiperspirants are a subgroup of deodorants. Antiperspirants contain aluminum which not only prevent body odor but it also blocks sweat glands and prevent the body from perspiring - which is a normal, natural body function and a way the body releases toxins.

Granny's Natural Deodorant blocks body odor but not not prevent the body from perspiring. This allows the body to naturally release toxins to avoid a toxin buildup within the sweat glands while keeping the person smelling fresh throughout the day.

Granny's Natural Deodorant can be purchased for $4.95 for a 1 oz. container or $9.95 for a 2 oz. container. All the ingredients used or natural and safe for all skin types. Granny's Natural Deodorant comes scented with various all natural herbal infused oils that give it a slight, sweet smell such as Rose, Peppermint, Lavender, Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musk and Frankincense.

Is Your Deodorant Harming Your Health?

After learning about potentially harmful, toxic ingredients in my deodorant, I began to make efforts to reduce the these ingredients from antiperspirant that I purchased. Of course we all know that deodorants help control odor, and antiperspirants often are made with Aluminum (which can potentially be toxic, especially in large quantities and with use over time) and Aluminum blocks the bodies natural secretion process. This often leaves toxins trapped within our bodies. New research even suggests that underarm use of deodorants that contain Aluminum and other harmful chemicals can potentially lead in an increase in health problems in people, including a potential increase for breast cancer in women. 

The truth is.. Our underarms are natural secretion points for toxins and when we block toxins they can build up and cause numerous health issues.

What are some of the toxic ingredients found in our common, widely used antiperspirants? 

Here is a List:

1. Aluminum

Aluminum is used in most mainstream deodorants. Aluminum blocks our bodies natural ability to sweat in our armpits and this can lead to a build up of toxins which may cause health problems. Aluminum has also been found to affect hormone levels. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream is Aluminum-Free and is made from all natural, all organic ingredients such as Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Clary Sage Oil and other natural ingredients.

Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream is safe for all skin types and is also Paraben and GMO free. Granny's Natural Deodorant is made from a long held family recipe and allows the body to naturally breathe while providing long lasting coverage throughout the day and night. The toxins within your body will be able to exit your body. 

2. Parabens

Parabens are in many beauty products as well as deodorants on the market. Parabens have been found to cause reproductive problems in women as well as a build up of toxicity within human organs. Parabens have also been found to cause allergic reactions in people as well as they can be a skin irritant. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream is Paraben-free. It's all natural and organic. 

3. TEA and DEA

Triethanolamine (TEA) and diethanolamine (DEA) are chemicals that can affect liver and kidney health. Both of these chemicals are known carcinogens that have also been banned in Europe. 

4. Steareths

Steareths, are known carcinogens which are additives made from weakening harsh chemicals within the manufacturing process. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream doesn't contain Steareths or any other harmful chemical. All of the ingredients used in Granny's Natural Deodorant are All Natural, and Organic. Safe to use.

5. Fragrance

Fragrances have been known to irritate the skin and they may cause an allergic reaction. Fragrances can also increase organ toxicity. Granny's Natural Deodorant doesn't use a traditional chemical fragrance. Everything is  homemade from natural herbs and oils such as coconut oil or olive oil. The herbs are grown organically without the use of pesticides or chemicals and are made into oils. So Granny's Natural Deodorant gives off a light, sweet smell that is pleasing.

6. Propylene Glycol

Propylene glycol, is a well known neurotoxin, which may affect central nervous system, heart and liver health. It has also been known to cause allergic reactions and be irritating to the skin, especially those who have sensitive skin. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream has no Propylene Glycol.

7. Talc

Talc may contain asbestiform fibers, which make Talc another known carcinogen. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream is Talc-Free. 

8. Triclosan

Triclosan, according to the FDA, is a pesticide which has antimicrobial properties. It kills both good and bad bacteria on the skin, and it may be a carcinogen.

9. Artificial Colors

Artificial Colors are known carcinogens which  may cause allergic reactions. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream has no artificial Colors.

10. Silica

Silica is a known skin irritant that may be contaminated with crystalline quartz, which is a known carcinogen. Granny's Natural Deodorant Cream has no Silica and uses only all natural, organic ingredients.
