You sure are like me. Summer is here and you are sweating in your compression, which I also lovingly call the portable home sauna. Sweating is supposed to be very healthy and others pay a lot of money to have a sauna installed in the basement. But that's not really any consolation either. So what do you do? Sure you cool off as best you can and you use a lot of deodorant. But then you remember that you shouldn't use your previous favorite anymore because the deodorant contains so much aluminum.
How does aluminum work?
Our sweat pores are contracted by aluminum salts and these close up. That is why many deodorants contain aluminum salt. There are increasing allegations that aluminum could be a factor in the development of breast cancer. There are numerous opinions and partly contradicting studies. I don't even want to go into that here. It is up to you how you assess the current information and whether you want to use aluminum-containing deodorants or not.
Since I wanted to exchange my previous deodorant, I started looking for an aluminum-free deodorant. Due to all the media hype, these have been provided with large "without aluminum" stickers for some time. So I just grabbed one of the deodorants and thought the subject was over. But then the disillusionment. The deodorant hardly seemed to work at all. Even if I applied it several times a day. Since this was not an alternative for me, I have tested myself with numerous aluminum-free deodorants over the course of time (I think it's almost two years). But they just couldn't match the effectiveness of the aluminum deodorants.
The smell of Speick is a matter of taste. I think it takes getting used to, but is pleasant. And the deodorant really helps and I've finally found an alternative. I have now bought my fourth Speick deodorant. I like the spray bottle best.
Which deodorant do you use? Have you ever thought about aluminum? And if you have any other great deodorant tips, please always bring them on.
All the best
