At Tierra Mia Organics, we emphasize that what we put on our skin doesn’t just sit on top of it; it goes into our bodies.
Ditch the dirty deodorant! What's so dirty about antiperspirant? After all, antiperspirants leave us sweat-free and smelling fresh and clean, right?
Your body needs to sweat. The sweat process allows your body to regulate its temperature and release toxins. In fact, when we don't release toxins they build-up inside our bodies, and reside in our lymph nodes. The natural way for the body to expel toxins is through sweat, urine, and feces.
What about masking body odor?
Tierra Mia Organics Deodorant Paste contains baking soda, which actually prevents odor-causing bacteria from thriving on the skin. Antiperspirants merely cover up the smell and blocks the sweat glands.
Aluminum chloride is one of the main ingredients in deodorants and antiperspirants. It can cause skin irritation, including rash in some people. Aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate, and aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex glycine are the most common active ingredients in antiperspirants. Aluminum in its natural form is not necessarily harmful, but these compound derivatives are not natural aluminum. They are said to be safe for use in small doses, but they also pose health risks as overexposure to aluminum ions and compounds actually blocks sweat glands.
Did you know parabens are estrogenic, meaning they can add estrogen to your hormonal system, causing an imbalance? Your body absorbs estrogen through your skin, which is another reason why using paraben-free products is the safer alternative in skin care.
Aluminum-free deodorant will not turn your clothes yellow as many typical deodorants will. Our cream-based deodorant will wash out if it comes into contact with your clothes.
Cancer-causing chemicals can be absorbed through small abrasions in the skin. They can become trapped in the body by antiperspirant use since your body can't sweat it out. Since the armpits are so close to the lymph nodes and breasts, toxins can build up there, leading to the possibility of your cells mutating into cancer.
