The skin care products that we tend to buy are often times packed with dangerous chemicals, which in turn have devastating effects on our overall health. The deodorants that you probably use every day, are made with very harsh and unhealthy materials.
If you are using, or you know some man that is using Axe deodorants, please share this article with him.
There are many commercials that poison our minds with the idea that Axe deodorants are great, and they make men to be more attractive to the opposite sex. Well, most of them hate it, and this is not even the worst part.
The products from this company are packed with endocrine disruptors, which affect the hormone production and make a hormonal mess in our bodies.
Endocrine disruptors affect male’s and female’s reproduction, and can lead to the development of breast cancer, prostate cancer, obesity and metabolism problems, cardiovascular problems and problems with the thyroid gland.
Axe contains BHT
BHT is an antimicrobial preservative and the skin absorbs it rather quickly. It has been heavily linked with organ damage, reproductive toxicity and even development of cancer.
This product also contains an active antiperspirant ingredient known as aluminum zirconium tetraclorohydrex Gly. This ingredient will make you stop sweating for the next 24 hours, but the bad thing is that it carries aluminum ions into your body. The aluminum ions can lead to the formation of breast cancer, kidney damage, Alzheimer’s and nerve damage.
This ingredient is responsible for the creation of nitrosamines and foam. The foam is a nice thing, but the nitrosamines should never enter in your body. They are highly carcinogenic, and can cause up to 40 different types of cancer!
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether
This ingredient will reduce the static cling that will accumulate on your armpits if they are kept dry for too long. But the scientific researches have shown that even 99% of breast cancer cases contain it.
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether belongs to a group of toluene derivatives, that can cause developmental and reproductive toxicity.
The bottom line is that you should avoid using Axe, and you should opt for natural alternatives instead.
