Aluminum is one of the primary ingredients used. It is a metal that is used to block the sweat glands, this results to reduction in the persons sweat by an average of 20% increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. Just pause and think where the sweat go.

They remain within you. These toxic load accumulates when used frequently, and lead to cell mutation.

Although there is a controversy in the study of the connection between aluminum and the human breast, there are still a lot of consuming point.

Because of constant shaving, there’s an easy passage of this aluminum into the the body through the shaved underarms.

2. Propylene glycol:

This is a petroleum based substance. This product acts as a penetration enhancer in the body. When paired with harmful chemicals, will cause easy absorption.

This product is not toxic and does not bioaccumulate in the body instead it eliminates within hours.

It is linked to issues like
