We sweat because it’s our body’s natural way to keep us cool. Sweat doesn’t smell. The body odor comes from normal skin bacteria breaking down the sweat secretions released from the sweat glands. Also, your sweat may smell different depending on what foods you have eaten.
Deodorant helps mask the scent of our sweat. Antiperspirants prevent sweat by plugging up your sweat ducts. The key ingredient is aluminum, which is a neurotoxin (a poison that acts on the nervous system). Aluminum has been associated with a variety of health issues including breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, bone disorders and kidney problems.
Women have more sweat glands than men, but men produce more sweat. But one product works for both men and women, there is no difference unless you want a different scent. I personally like using peppermint because it’s very cooling.
The .33 oz. is perfect for travel. Keep one in your laptop bag or purse.
One 2.65 oz. deodorant can last up to one year for one person.
Ingredients: Jojoba Wax, Beeswax, Shea Butter
Jojoba Wax looks and feels like an oil, but it’s a liquid wax. It aids in protecting the skin from dehydration and very moisturizing to the skin. Jojoba penetrates the skin deeply, slowing down the natural process of oxidizing lipids, which prevents premature aging.
Jojoba penetrates deep into your lower epidermis layers providing deep hydration. It’s good for sensitive skin and oily skin as it restores the normal skin hydration.
Beeswax has super conditioning properties and has a high anti-inflammatory action that calms and soothes the skin. It forms a protective barrier on the skin that helps protect you from the environment but still holding in moisture, thus reducing dryness.
Beeswax has antibacterial properties, helping to keep your skin clean and it reduces risk of contamination of your body butter. It’s a good source of Vitamin A, helps with healing wounds, reduces itching and has a natural honey fragrance.
