The Natural Deodorant Movement

The Natural Deodorant Movement


I feel like natural deodorant has been given a bad representation for far too long. Many people have a mindset that if you wear natural deodorant, you probably don’t smell the best. I’m not saying there aren’t natural deodorants like that, but there are many that would pleasantly surprise you!


Did you know that store brand, big name, deodorants often contain metals such as aluminum? I’m not here to tell you your deodorant will cause you cancer, but I am here to tell you some of the facts. The fact is the American Cancer Society didn’t find any solid scientific grounding linking deodorant to breast cancer, however, aluminum is also a known neurotoxin that has been linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.  Most breast cancers develop in the upper outer part of the breast, this is also the area closest to your pit, some research has suggested that aluminum compounds absorbed by the skin may cause changes in estrogen receptors of breast cells.  In addition, high levels of aluminum have been found in the brains of those impacted by Alzheimer’s.  A recent study from the Saint Louis University found that aluminum may cause liver toxicity, a contributing factor to diseases like Alzheimer’s.  But let’s not stop there.  The National Kidney Foundation did find alarming evidence that it can harm your kidneys. They recommend if you have any sort of weakened kidney function to steer clear of antiperspirants and deodorants with aluminum.


Soni’s Suds offers a natural deodorant that doesn’t contain baking soda or aluminum. Why take the risk of developing an unwanted health issue, when you don’t have to? As someone that lives an active lifestyle, I find that my natural deodorant gives me the protection I need. This product is perfect for those with sensitive skin, as it doesn’t contain baking soda which can cause skin irritation. While a natural deodorant won’t aid in stopping your sweat you will be smelling better than ever. If you’ve ever thought about making the change give it a try!
