The very common used deodorant – Axe.
The real effects of Axe
The people who are in charge of marketing of the axe product, persuade men that Axe has an ability to make women fawn over men who use Axe product. But this is not quite true, because the real fact is that women hate the Axe scent.
But this is not the main problem if you are using Axe product.
Plenty endocrine disruptors are found in Axe sprays. And the effect that these chemicals have on the body is that they actually mimic the human hormone function and in that way the body gets confused. The Endocrine Society has explained the precise nature of the body confusion and it says:
The Endocrine disruptors are can have various negative effects on different system of the body such as the cardiovascular endocrinology, obesity and metabolism, thyroid, neuroendocrinology, cancer, prostate, breast development and cancer, and also on the female and male reproduction.
But that’s not all. Continue reading this article if you want to find out more about the content of ingredients that are actually toxic in Axe products.
Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly
He Axe product contains this active antiperspirant ingredient. And it attaches to the underarm and with that it can protect you from sweating for 24 hours. But that is not everything. You also need to know that your skin has the ability to absorb aluminum ions very easy and quickly. And if we constantly use deodorants with aluminum ions it can cause breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, kidney damage and also nerve damage.
Axe has also a few products that are foamy and they are made this way with the ingredient -- Cocamidopropyl Betaine. But the bad effect is that this ingredient also relates with other chemicals from food and cosmetics and by doing that it can produce nitrosamines. And a huge number of nitrosamines are very carcinogenic. They are the main factor for the appearance of more than 40 different types of human and animal cancer.
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether
Static sling can be a result of dry armpits from unnatural way. And this is the perfect situation for the PPG-14 Bustyl Ether to create a environment that is less clingy. This ingredient is actually a paraben, and it is found in all breast cancer tissue in about 99 %.
PPG-14 Bustyl Ether is also a toluene derivate -- and it is a type of chemical which has been related with developmental and reproductive toxicity.
BHT helps improve the smell of Axe and without it the scent would be very rancid. Even more than it is with it. BHT is actually a antimicrobial preservative, and the bad thing here is that the body actually can absorb the BHT very easy and it also breaks it down very quickly. And this chemical can lead to reproductive toxicity, cancer and major organ damage when it enters the body even in small doses.
