The Deodorant Dilemma: How Your Antiperspirant Could be Making You Stink

You don’t have to convince us that natural is better, we love natural personal care products for so many reasons, but now we have even more reason to shout about the benefits of nature from the rooftops! Recent research has found that conventional deodorants and antiperspirants can disrupt the natural microbiome of the underarms, leading to an overgrowth of stinky bacteria that can cause odor. Not to mention, some people can even experience an allergic reaction to certain ingredients! But don't worry, natural deodorants are here to save the day and keep you smelling fresh. So hop on the natural bandwagon and get ready to experience the benefits of natural personal care products! 


Are you ready to find out the truth about your daily hygiene routine? Recent studies have shown that using certain types of deodorants and antiperspirants can potentially cause more harm than good. But what does this mean for your body odor? It could mean an overgrowth of odor-causing bacteria and generally increasing the bacterial diversity in your underarms. Ouch! But don't worry, it's not all bad news. While some users may experience an overgrowth of stinky bacteria for a while, other antiperspirant users’ skin will go back to normal after discontinuing use. So if you're ready to make the switch, choose a natural alternative that works hard to keep BO at bay! 

Oh hey, did you know that your underarms are like their own little ecosystem? Yep, that's right! We're talking about a unique microbiome of bacteria and fungi. These microorganisms play a big role in keeping your skin balanced and preventing the overgrowth of nasty bacteria. But here's the thing - when you apply your trusty deodorant or antiperspirant, you're disrupting that beautiful balance. Many of these products contain ingredients like aluminum, triclosan and alcohol which can kill off beneficial bacteria and cause an overgrowth of bacteria that make you smell. Who knew, right?


So, what's the solution? One alternative is to switch to a natural deodorant that is free of synthetic ingredients and preservatives. Check out PiperWai's deodorant! It's packed with natural ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and activated charcoal that not only absorb moisture and neutralize odor, but also keeps your underarm's microbiome in balance. So go ahead and make the switch to natural deodorants and give your body odor a break. It's time to restore the balance of your underarms and get back to feeling fresh!
