Why should you switch from your regular deodorant

Let’s talk about sweat. Why do our bodies need it? Where do we sweat the most and why do we smell when we sweat? 

Sweating is simply our body’s way of cooling down in a process known as thermoregulation. Our brain triggers this response during times of high activity, stress, hormonal changes and of course, heat. Although sweat glands exist all over our bodies, (millions in fact!) they aren’t all created equal. There are special sweat glands found in your armpits called apocrine glands that produce a thicker sweat than that of the rest of your body. The fluids secreted here are largely made up of water (99%), but they also contain trace amounts of carbs, proteins, and salt. When this type of sweat comes in contact with the bacteria on your skin (Staphylococcus hominis), the result is the all too familiar body odor we experience. Sadly, despite our underarm sweat making up less than 2% of our body’s total perspiration, it’s one of the main culprits behind our body odor. 

Now that we’ve identified the main source of body odor, let’s tackle the solution.

Most of us have probably tried a few different deodorants over the years, but did you know not all are created equal? The way deodorants and antiperspirants work are by either inhibiting the production of sweat (antiperspirant) or masking odors (deodorant). In order to accomplish these purposes, traditional deodorants are formulated with ingredients like aluminum, triclosan, and baking soda. Here’s a quick breakdown of what they do. 

Aluminum

Aluminum works by inhibiting your body’s ability to sweat. Aluminum blocks sweat ducts, preventing your body from naturally releasing sweat to cool down. Although it helps you stay dry, aluminum has been a cause for concern for some time - with studies citing its absorption into the skin may be linked to changes in estrogen receptors which cause breast cancer cells to grow. 

Triclosan

Triclosan is used to kill the bacteria that reside on the skin’s surface in order to prevent odor. Unfortunately, this ingredient is a known endocrine disrupter, and for that reason, the FDA has banned its use in hand soaps. There are currently no regulations preventing its use in deodorant. 

Baking Soda 

Baking soda was introduced as an alternative to aluminum for its absorbent qualities, and while it’s a safer bet, it’s frequently been noted to cause skin irritations. 

Why Clean Is Better 

Choosing a clean deodorant that works can feel daunting - which is why we did the leg work for you. Starting from scratch, our team challenged themselves to formulate a deodorant that kept all the good and none of the bad. Using new, innovative ingredients like antioxidant-rich green tea leaf, sandalwood oil, sage leaf extract, to naturally eliminate bacteria and neutralize odors, we were able to develop a plant-based deodorant that truly works. Unlike other clean deodorants that can be dry and rough upon application, we've added coconut oil to help moisturize underarms creating a unique, silky smooth application. Our clear formula leaves no residue or white marks, and come in the same great scents you love: Isle, Capri. 

Skylar’s Refreshing Deodorant is free of baking soda, aluminum, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, alcohol and triclosan.  Keeping you smelling fresh, naturally. 

Xo, 

Skylar
