The main difference between antiperspirants and deodorant is that antiperspirants are designed to reduce/stop you from sweating, while deodorants are designed to mask body odor. Antiperspirants work by blocking the sweat glands in the underarm area, which helps to reduce the amount of sweat that is produced. pHreshWellness aluminum-free natural deodorants, on the other hand, do not affect the production of sweat. Instead, they contain ingredients with antimicrobial agents that help to mask body odor and kill odor-causing bacteria. Some deodorants also contain astringents that can help to reduce the appearance of sweating. Overall, the main difference between antiperspirant and deodorant is their intended purpose and the way in which they work.
Some research suggests (www.AmericanCancerSociety) that aluminum-based compounds, which are applied frequently and left on the skin near the breast, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like effects (hormonal). Estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, as suggested by scientists, directly related to the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants and the development of breast cancer. There is a network of lymph glands (also called lymph nodes) close to the breast. They are part of the lymphatic system that runs throughout the body. The lymph nodes and lymph vessels contain a yellow fluid called lymph that flows through the lymphatic system. Parabens are chemicals used as preservatives found in many types of make-up (like lipstick, mascara, concealer, and foundation) and skin care products (like lotion, shaving products, antiperspirant, and sunscreen). Parabens can be absorbed through the skin. Parabens have been raised as a possible health concern because lab studies have shown that they have weak estrogen-like properties. Estrogen is a female hormone known to cause breast cells (both normal and cancer cells) to grow. (Source: American Cancer Society)

As always consult your doctor or healthcare provider before staring any product, especially a new product. It is generally safe to use natural deodorants while breast-feeding. However, as with any product that is applied to the skin, it is important to choose a natural deodorant that is free from potentially harmful ingredients. pHreshWellness includes low dosages of essential oils in our Evergreen adult deodorant and a fragrance-free detox mask. Some common ingredients in natural deodorants that may not be safe for breastfeeding women include highly potent essential oils, which can be absorbed into the skin and passed on to the baby through breast milk. Avoid natural deodorants that contain alcohol, as this can be drying and potentially irritating to the skin. If you are breast-feeding and considering using a natural deodorant, it is best to consult with your healthcare provider to discuss your options and choose a product that is safe for both you and your baby.
As with any product, or new product consult your doctor or healthcare provider. During menopause, hormone levels can fluctuate, which can cause changes in body odor. pHreshWellness can help reduce odor and keep you feeling 24-Hour pHresh.
