No Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl and butyl)
Parabens are a very common ingredient that has been used for nearly 70 years, found in everyday products including deodorant. You may have seen “paraben free” labels, and that’s a good thing. Why is everyone so down on parabens? During a study done in 2004, parabens were linked to breast cancer.  They are said to disturb the body’s hormonal balance and to mimic estrogen. Estrogen is said to play a part in breast cancer formation. Dangers for health: Linked to breast cancer. 

No Aluminum (chloralhydrate, zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly)
Aluminum compounds within deodorants act as a plug within the sweat ducts and temporarily stop the flow of sweat. However, these compounds can be absorbed by your skin. Just as the parabens, these compounds can mimic estrogen, which promotes growth of breast cancer cells. Dangers for health: Linked to breast cancer.

No Silica
Silica is a known skin irritant, it may also be contaminated with crystalline quartz which is a carcinogen (capable of causing cancer). Dangers for health: Cancer, allergies/immunotoxicity.

No Triclosan
Triclosan is another ingredient that can irritate your skin and cause contact dermatitis. Your body contains good as well as bad bacteria, but triclosan kills both. The FDA classifies triclosan as a pesticide, while the IARC has it listed as a possible carcinogen. Dangers for health: Skin irritation, contact dermatitis, cancer. 

No Talc
IARC, claims that if Talc contains asbestiform fibers, then it is considered a carcinogen. The quantity of asbestiform fibers in deodorants is unclear as it is not regulated in cosmetic products. Dangers for health: Linked to cancer. 

No Propylene Glycol
Propylene glycol is another common ingredient with health hazards. It may cause delayed allergic reactions, and is considered a neurotoxin, which may cause kidney and liver damage. Dangers for health: Delayed allergic reactions, possible kidney, and liver damage. 

No Steareth-n
The “n” stands for a number. So the label may say, for example, steareth-1. It is actually derived from vegetables, but it is reacted with a known carcinogen, ethylene oxide. Dangers for health: Linked to cancer.
