People should be aware of the fact that all those cosmetic products we use on a daily basis are filled with hazardous chemicals which affect our overall health.
In this artice, we will present you why Axe,the popular men’s deodorant is harmful for our health.
This deodorant is advertised in order to attract women, which in fact consider it as bad, but this is not our concern. We will show you the negative effects of this deodorant.
Axe, and many similar products are actually loaded with endocrine disruptors which imitate the function of the human hormones, thus confusing the body.
This is the explanation from the Endocrine Society:
“Endocrine disruptors have effects on male and female reproduction, breast development and cancer, prostate cancer, neuroendocrinology, thyroid, metabolism and obesity, and cardiovascular endocrinology.”
Unfortunately, the Axe product contain even more hazardous ingredients:
Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly
This active antiperspirant clings to the underarm so that it prevents wetness within 24 hours. However, our skin actually abosrbs aluminium ions which accumulate over time and as a result of that, they cause kidney damage, nerve damage, cancer and Alzheimer’s
This checimal is an antimicrobial preservative which is easily absorbed into the skin thus causing reproductive toxicity, organ damage, and cancer.
It gives the foamy nature of some products of Axe, but it also interacts with other chemicals thus creating nitrosamines which are carcinogenic. According to researchers, they cause more than 40 types of cancer in animals and humans as well.
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether
This paraben reduces the accumulation of static cling under the armpits, but it is also carcinogenic because it has been found in 99% of all breast cancer tissues.
Moreover, it is a member of the group of toluene derivatives, which contain chemicals related to reproductive and developmental toxicity.
As you can see, you should definitely stay away from Axe products, and if you want to stay clean and smell nice and fresh, find some natural deodorant recipe and prepare it on your own.
