Are You Still Using Aluminium?

What Really is in That Deodorant?
Next time you are shopping for odour protection products, examine the label very carefully. What goes into your stick or roll-on deodorant should be non-toxic and as natural as possible. Health is a compelling reason for purchasing natural.
The Problem with Antiperspirants
Most of the antiperspirants contain a fusion of chemicals, preservatives and synthetic fragrances as well as aluminium. The skin absorbs everything we put on it and these ingredients can be absorbed by the body and give rise to irritating rashes and pose other health risks. Many experts contend that aluminium is even hazardous to the long-term health of people with some studies indicating a possible link to the degenerative disease, Alzheimer's.
However mass marketed antiperspirants that promise to keep you dry are cheap and typically contain synthetic compounds such as aluminium chlorohydrate to stop you sweating. The trouble is they plug the pores that prevent toxins from being eliminated which often create rashes and irritation. That's a little like plugging a car's exhaust!
The Natural Deodorants
This doesn't mean that everyone has to throw out their underarm protection altogether and live with the malodorous consequences. Fortunately Jason has many products available that do not resort to chemicals to keep us smelling sweet. Jason's are natural deodorants not antiperspirants so they won't block the pores of the skin. Jason's natural deodorants use aromatic herbs and essential oils to kill the bacteria that cause unpleasant and even nasty smells. None of them contain aluminium, alcohol or propylene glycol.
All Jason products are backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
