Ingredients: Magnesium oil made with reverse osmosis water, witch hazel, tea tree and lavender essential oil blend.
Conventional deodorants contain harmful, cancer causing ingredients such as aluminum, polypropylene glycol, parabens, and phthalates.
Aluminum is used to “block” the sweat glands, decreasing a person’s sweat by an average of 20%. The problem with aluminum is that it can pose serious health risks, like Alzheimer’s Disease and breast cancer. Blocking the sweat glans prevents toxins from being able to leave the body.
Propylene glycol is a petroleum based substance that is used to create a soft and sleek consistency. It’s use has been linked to:
- reproductive complications
- developmental abnormalities
- endocrine complications
Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products such as deodorants, moisturizers and shampoos. Parabens allow skin care products to survive for months or even years in your medicine cabinet; however, they also enter your body through your skin when you use these products. According to Mercola.com, the body can absorb as much as five pounds of cosmetic chemicals every year. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body and disrupt functions of the endocrine system.
Phthalates, which are often labeled as “fragrance”, are plasticizing chemicals often used in deodorants and other self-care products. Once phthalates are absorbed by the body, they act as estrogens, which conflict with your hormonal function, and cause a variety of complications. These include:
- Decreased sperm count
- Cancers: Breast, Prostate, Ovarian
- Liver, Kidney and Lung Damage
Magnesium has natural odor eliminating properties. We blend our custom magnesium oil base with witch hazel to help soothe under arms. We then mix this with tea tree and lavender essential oil blend for a refreshing natural scent.
Packaging and Shipping
2 fl. oz. and 4 fl. oz amber glass bottles with atomizer.
Avoid spraying immediately after shaving underarms as stinging may occur. Stinging may also occur if you are low in magnesium. This should subside within a few days of applying the spray.
