Underarm Detox Mask
An underarm detox really is essential if you're changing over from a conventional deodorant to our deodorant powder. Mix a teaspoon of powder with enough water or apple cider vinegar to make a paste. Mix well, then apply a thin layer as a mask, rinse off when dry. Use a non-metal bowl and spoon as metals will deactivate the healing strength of the clays. You will know when to finish the detox as there will be no more odour or irritation and your armpits will be like new again, and, you will be healthier.
Ingredients: Bentonite clay, zeolite, Australian green clay, chlorella powder, xanthan gum (non gmo), sage essential oil.
Underarm Deodorant Powder
Throw out your conventional deodorant right now! The majority of them are doing you harm, if it is an antiperspirant then it definitely is. They contain aluminium, parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates, triclosan and so on. All these chemicals absorb through your skin and lodge in the lymph nodes and breast tissue. And, they make you sick. Antiperspirants stop you from sweating, they clog the pores and so the body's attempt to eliminate toxins is halted. The toxins are trapped in your body. And this makes you sick too.
This natural deodorant powder is a combination of Australian native sandalwood powder, zeolite and zinc oxide, all pure substances that we have blended in the perfect ratio to offer a healthy alternative. Just dab a tiny amount onto dry armpits or apply with one of our brushes, here. The powder will last you several months, it goes a loooong way.
If you are changing over from a conventional deodorant, we strongly recommend that you do an underarm detox as well for the first week or so. You may be a bit smelly during this time until the toxins are removed and the body balances itself. This is only very temporary. After the detox, you'll be smelling like roses ... or rather, sandalwood.
Ingredients - Australian native sandalwood, zeolite, non nano zinc oxide.
How To Prevent Breast Cancer Thru An Armpit Detox
An armpit detox is a great effective way to detox your body and may help reduce your risk of breast cancer. Did you know that a lot of clinical studies find a disproportionately high number of female breast cancers originating in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, the area to which underarm cosmetic products are applied? Because breast tissue is mostly adipose, it’s a place where most toxins get stored. Most conventional deodorants and other body products that we use on a daily basis contain aluminium chlorohydrate, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, TEA, DEA, FD&C colours, and quaternium 18, among other toxic chemicals. Some of these chemicals increase the risk of breast cancer by mimicking oestrogen. Most breast cancer cases initially develop as hormone-dependent cancer, in which growth and progression of the disease correlates with oestrogen levels.
In a 2007 study published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, researchers tested breast samples from 17 breast-cancer patients who had undergone mastectomies. The women who used antiperspirants had deposits of aluminium in their outer breast tissue. Concentrations of aluminium were higher in the tissue closest to the underarm than in the central breast.
Parabens also increase the risk of breast cancer by mimicking oestrogen, according to some experts. Researchers have found parabens inside autopsied breast tumours. Dr. Darbre comments on the study: “Parabens are used as preservatives in thousands of cosmetic, food, and pharmaceutical products, but this is the first study to show their accumulation in human tissues. It demonstrates that if people are exposed to these chemicals, then the chemicals will accumulate in their bodies.”
It is important to understand, sweating is an essential function of our body. Sweat contains chemicals that fight diseases. This is why it’s vital to keep the pores under your arms unclogged. Beneath the skin in the armpit is a cluster of lymph nodes that work to remove foreign cells. Chemical-laden products applied to the arm pit prevent this removal of toxins. Fortunately, you can do an armpit detox which can help your body to pull out stored toxins, chemical residue, and unclog your pores.
Drink plenty of water during the detox, because your body needs to have a way to flush out all of the toxins.
