Did you know, that on average, a woman uses 12 personal care products daily, exposing them to 168 chemicals!! These chemicals can cause some endocrine disruptions, which can interfere with the body’s hormonal systems and produce developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune dysfunction.
The most common endocrine disruptive chemicals are: parabens, phthalates, PFCs, aluminum salts, triclosan, BPA, and UV filters. Two sites that I use to check the quality of products are:
💫Think Dirty App
💫EWG healthy living
These two apps are nice because you can scan a product you are considering buying and the app can tell you its “clean” rating, level of concern, toxicity, etc. One of the first products that I decided to trade in my old toxic brand for a non-toxic brand was my deodorant. Now, this took a lot of trial and error because a lot of the natural deodorants that I tried out were awful, didn't work, didn't last and smelled terrible so I always ended up going back to my "toxic" deodorant.
Schmidts brand is the first one that I have tried that actually works, just as well, if not better than my old deodorant. I mean this deodorant keeps me dry during my summer workouts in our garage in the Florida heat! That's pretty impressive. The Schmidt’s Charcoal + Magnesium is my new go to deodorant. It has a fresh smell, goes on smooth, and doesn’t clump. Plus, the charcoal is known for its adsorption qualities as toxins leave your body. Extra bonus Try it out for yourself.
