A article states, “the primary ingredient used in most antiperspirants is aluminum. Aluminum is a metal, which is used in antiperspirants to help block the sweat from escaping the pores. Aluminum has been linked to breast cancer in women and has also been linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease.” In other words, while most common deodorant products might seem like they are working and doing their job (to make you sweat less and smell better), they could also be doing some damage to your body and your health.
