Propylene Glycol

Have you ever heard of Propylene Glycol? It's a petroleum by-product based antifreeze I use to winterize my trailer plumbing. Even under extremely cold weather, this chemical doesn't allow any residual water that may have been left in the plumbing to freeze, thereby protecting my pipes from bursting!

Do you know that Propylene Glycol is also used in the majority of deodorants and antiperspirants we buy and slather under our arms, as well as a majority of lotions and makeup on the market??? It keeps the deodorant slick. It's also been linked to heart damage, liver damage and damage to our central nervous system 😮

Store bought deodorants may also be loaded with aluminum (breast cancer and alzheimers), phthalates (Phthalates, a family of industrial chemicals used to soften PVC plastic and as solvents in cosmetics and other consumer products, can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs, and reproductive system — particularly the developing testes) and a ton of other chemicals 😥

Propylene Glycol is also what the majority of folks having colonoscopies must drink prior to their procedures! Yuck

My son developed cancer in his late teens/early 20's (lost his leg) and I've often wondered what impact, if any, this crap may have played, as he used toxic deodorants/body washes/shampoo morning and night. I'm not blaming any of the manufacturers, it's just something that makes you wonder 🤔 I encourage you to read the labels and think twice about what you're applying to both your and your children's bodies and consider alternatives to the chemically laden products you're using now. These large companies use these chemicals because they're cheap fillers in their products. Cheap ingredients mean higher profit for the exec's and big yearly bonuses.

I offer a 100% organic ingredient deodorant that really works! It's not an antiperspirant (our bodies need to perspire in order to keep us cool, and to remove toxins! Think fever sweat), but it does stop the stink, naturally. It's in spray form, but it lasts a LOT longer than solid in tubes, so you won't have to buy as often. It also has the added benefit of keeping your armpits soft and moisturized. It doesn't clog your pores either. Wannabee's superior, 2 ingredient deodorant is perfect for teens, adults and the elderly, 100% safe to use on all skin types and wonderful for breast cancer patients/survivors who want to avoid all chemicals, especially in such a delicate area. It works great on stinky feet too.

Please note, this mineral salt deodorant is scent free and may not work you, especially if you have overactive sweat glands. It's definitely worth a try though.
