Why Switch To nakd. Deodorant?
In today's world you have hundreds of deodorant options to choose from. You go to the grocery store, convenience store and even online, there will be rows or pages of products to pick from. All in fancy labels, scents, shapes and sizes just begging for your attention to give them a try. Most of us depend on our deodorant like the air we breathe, relying on it to get us through our busy day and exercise sessions, body-odor free. The problem is almost all deodorants use chemicals, minerals, oils, and fragrances to reduce or eliminate odor-causing bacteria.
Deodorants are classified by the FDA as cosmetics and are, therefore, not required* to be tested on animals or humans. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, are classified as drugs, and therefore, are required to be tested. Antiperspirant deodorants work by closing up the pores to prevent perspiration, but this means that sweat builds up beneath the skin. This can cause bumpy skin and painful irritation. Almost every one of these antiperspirant deodorants will have something in common: aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium.
Natural health groups have been pressing government and regulatory agencies for years to take a hard look at the long-term safety of aluminum in cosmetic products. Aluminum is what gives antiperspirants their wetness-fighting ability, and they're highly effective. The problem is this: nobody really knows what aluminum does in the human body. In the case of deodorants, you’re applying aluminum directly to the skin and leaving it there. With women, in particular, that skin might be broken from shaving.
For years, rumors circulating the internet have claimed that active ingredients in your usual drugstore deodorant can lead to breast cancer. Though, the research behind this theory has mostly come up inconclusive based on what the American Cancer Society found.
So why nakd. Deodorant?
When it comes to your wellness, we want you to know our nakd. deodorant has no artificial fragrances, parabens, silicone, aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium: just natural mineral salts. It does not clog your pores, it's hypoallergenic, non-staining, lasts up to 24 hours and has never been tested on animals. We don't try to lure you in with a fancy label in hope that you "give us a try" we keep it simple just like our natural ingredients. Remember, your body absorbs almost everything you put on it: the good and the bad. Because our ingredients are derived from true, natural sources, you avoid harmful, synthetic toxins that can build up and negatively impact your health. People in Thailand and the far east have been using natural deodorant stones derived from natural mineral salts for hundreds of years and we bring it to you in a convenient to use way.
Personally I understand, it's tough to make the switch to a natural deodorant and you might of tried to make the switch before only to use an expensive natural deodorant that did not work. You also might of used a crystal deodorant before but the company had shifted its manufacturing to China and it is not as effective as it once was (happened to me). Which is why I developed nakd. deodorant because I believe that everyone should have a natural, safe and an effective alternative deodorant to choose from. We will always use the highest quality natural ingredients and provide you with a premium customer experience. If you are ready to make the change today we also recommend that you join the movement and become apart of the nakd. lifestyle.
