As we embark on our overall wellness journeys, it’s no surprise that sometimes we may have to swap out some beauty products that we’ve grown accustomed to, for others that prove to be a bit better for our bodies and overall health. 

Hence, aluminum-free deodorants!

Aluminum-free deodorants are a better alternative to reach for because they actually target the odor-causing bacteria within your armpits, instead of just masking it. Deodorants that contain aluminum actually utilize the aluminum salts which prevent odors from reaching the surface of your skin, but it’s not actually tackling the cause. 

In addition, reaching for an aluminum-free deodorant unclogs the pores in your armpit and ultimately increases the process of your body’s natural detoxification. 

If you like what you hear, and want to embark on finding the right aluminum-free deodorant for you, then here’s some of our favorites!
