Breast Cancer Prevention: What Deodorant Brands Are Hiding

Hi friends! Today I want to share something with you that I have promised myself to improve on throughout the year. That is, an organic lifestyle! At the beginning of the year I was introduced to an incredible brand called Neal's Yard Remedies. NYR is a brand like no other and it has really opened my eyes to being cautious towards what I put on my skin everyday. Since learning about NYR I have been researching other brands that are comparable or if anything just a little bit more honest about what they include in their products. 

Since it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month I thought it would be fitting to share something with you guys that would help you prevent it in the future. After doing my research I was stunned to find out that 99% of Breast Cancer tissues either includes parabens or aluminum...both of which are included in every major name brand deodorant that is sold to us Every Single Day. WHAT. This has really stunned me because we are essentially aiding it yet we are growing in a world where unfortunately we know of wayyyyy too many people who have or have had breast cancer. It has touched way too many of us in one way or another and it is time we put an end to it. 

Humble Brands reached out to me last month about partnering together and after a few weeks of using their product I can completely vouch for it. Their deodorants include at most FIVE ingredients. THAT'S IT. FIVE. These ingredients include: organic cornstarch, organic olive oil, organic bee's wax, all-natural baking soda, and an organic essential oil. Their unscented deodorant only contains four ingredients because they do not include the essential oil. 

I think it is incredible that a product can only include four ingredients and still be as good as what is on shelves at Target and Walmart and be comparable in price. I don't know why anyone would want to use anything else. 

Now, in all honesty my opinion about this product is not skewed in any way, shape or form. If I did not love it I would not be talking about it.
