benefits of aluminum-free deodorant for men
With the growing awareness of health in people’s day to day lives, there has been a lot of talk about potentially harmful ingredients used in many commonly used products. More specifically, conversations often rise about deodorants that have aluminum in them.
An ingredient in many conventional deodorants, aluminum is used to clog the pores that release sweat in an attempt to minimize perspiration and the odors often associated with it. However, the negative side-effects of this use of aluminum have quickly become a source of controversy, especially in deodorants commonly used by men.
Luckily, there is a different option.

At Body Mint, we use a chlorophyll based derivative to reduce body odor called Chlorophyllin. Here are just a few bonuses chlorophyllin has for men over store-bought aluminum deodorants:
No Clogged Pores
Sweat is a way for your body to regulate its temperature. Preventing this natural mechanism from happening stops the body from performing its natural reaction to excessive heat. The downside of sweating can often be unwanted body odor.
Body Mint approaches this in a different way. It does not stop the body from sweating, but instead targets the odor causing compounds released in sweat to prevent body odor.
The Cancer and Alzheimer’s Debate
In recent years there has been somewhat of a controversy regarding the use of aluminum in topical products and a possible link to increased risks of breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. While it is not fully known whether or not there is a correlation, Body Mint takes the stance that it’s better to err on the side of caution. It contains no aluminum or other harsh chemicals, and it’s active ingredient is a proprietary chlorophyllin formula.
