Why you should ditch your antiperspirant (yesterday!)

Why you should ditch your antiperspirant (yesterday!)

Did you know that antiperspirants are NOT good for you? And that if you're using an antiperspirant deodorant then you could be making yourself unhealthy without even realising? 

Bummer, right!? 

Antiperspirants stop you from healthy sweating by blocking your pores like a plug. Then most (like an unwanted party guest) leave aluminium salts in your lovely self. Boo to that.

Aluminium isn’t normally found in your body so a big red flag is raised when researchers find it in our body tissue. Research shows that your body absorbs aluminium, and your antiperspirant could be a cause of this. 

Aluminium is a neurotoxin and it has links to increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also been found to disrupt your endocrine system by mimicking the hormone estrogen. Anything that can do this raises alarm bells in the breast cancer world.

It’s also the culprit for staining your clothes yellow and is only 20-50% effective at stopping sweating (even the clinical strength ones). Really makes you wonder if it’s worth using at all!

Don’t worry, there is an alternative :) But first - you don’t want to actually be stopping yourself from sweating.

It’s time to embrace sweating (but not stinking)

Despite the rumours, sweating IS good for you. It’s a totally natural bodily function that you should embrace, not shun.

Check out these 5 benefits of sweating:

  1. Cools your body down to prevent overheating (not a pretty sight)
  2. When we sweat we release endorphins. Yep, those feel-awesome hormones
  3. May help rid your body of toxins like BPA, phthalates and heavy metals
  4. Helps keep your pores clear. Hello! Who doesn’t like grime-free pores?
  5. Reduces the chance of kidney stones. We’re serious! 

These are kinda good things, right?!

That brings us to the missing piece of the puzzle - a way to banish body odour without putting your health at risk.

 

Go for a pro-perspirant instead

Pro-perspirant? Say waaahhhh?

The ‘pro-perspirant’ movement says, “Yes” to sweat and “No” to clogging up our pores with man made contaminants.

Using 100% natural ingredients, the healthy and toxin-free Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Pastes are the go-to for great-smelling, non-sticky armpits.  

The thing is, since sweating is so good we WANT you to sweat. That's why Woohoo is called a pro-perspirant. We want you to be healthy, and live the amazing life you deserve.

So while you sweat, Woohoo is hard at work making sure you don't smell! (and helps keep you drier too - no 1 trick pony here).

Instead of using unsavoury aluminium salts, Woohoo calls on the odour-busting powers of magnesium, bicarb and activated charcoal, plus 100% pure essential oils (no artificial fragrances) for a lust-worthy scent (though Woohoo Mellow is scent-free for those who like their happy and healthy pits to be a bit more neutral).

The magical tubs of Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste work by neutralising your body odour (which is actually caused by sweat-munching bacteria!) and absorbing moisture. The result: sniff-safe armpits, zero toxins. Woohoo to that!

Woohoo is also proudly free from parabens, aluminium, phthalates and artificial fragrances. And did we mention it’s also vegan-friendly, cruelty-free AND you can even use it on your sweaty feet. Yes, really!

So that, friends, is what a pro-perspirant is ;) Woohoooooo!

The Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste’s all-natural, vegan-friendly moisture mopping and odour-busting ability has scored it the title of ‘Best Natural Deodorant’ in the 2017 Nature and Health Magazine Awards.
