go aluminium free

I was very happy to find this new organic, aluminium and chemical free deodorant by Harmoni's Kiss on the shelf at Woolworths ($4.95). Made with aloe vera leaf juice, witch hazel extract and scented with essential oils including lime, orange, lavendar, geranium and rose it has a wonderful fragrance and it works!

Between 1 October 2011 and 31 December 2012 fifteen cents from every sale is donated to the McGrath Foundation. “McGrath Foundation supports McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and educates young women to be breast aware.” This is a fantastic, practical initiative. Every woman knows what the support of another woman means during hard times, and in the case of a woman with breast cancer to have a nurse that can answer their questions and support them emotionally is an initiative worth supporting. And educating young women about the importance of breast health and self-checking their breasts is important as early detection of breast cancer saves lives.

What's the fuss about aluminium in deodorant? While some medical articles argue there has been no conclusive evidence to show a direct link between aluminium in deodorant causing breast cancer, I would add - yet. While I believe there is no one single factor that causes cancer, I  believe in reducing the pollution, stress and chemicals we ingest and that includes not putting aluminium into my body.

If you'd like to share this post with the women in your life please go right ahead.
