What’s wrong with conventional deodorants?
Aluminium is used in most deodorants and antiperspirants, even in natural ones, because it efficiently blocks the sweat glands. Aluminium never occurs naturally in the body, but when used as a deodorant, gets absorbed and accumulates in the brain. Aluminium is associated with early onset of Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. Deodorants and antiperspirants also contain a cocktail of up to 3,000 unnatural ingredients, most labelled as fragrance. Many of these end up in the bloodstream and are hormonally disruptive.
Why Balance & Shine?
The detox begins when you make the switch. Nature’s solution is simple. ‘Balance & Shine’ is a mild citric acid solution, which is an acidity restorer. When you shower, your skin’s natural protective acid mantle is temporarily lost. When ‘Balance & Shine’ is applied, the restored acid balance prevents excess microbial growth that causes body odour. Your natural clean human scent is not affected. Acid balance also closes the hair cuticle, detangling the hair with oil free shine.
How to use.
To use in place of a deodorant, spray liberally after showering. It only works on washed skin.
To use as an aromatherapeutic face, body or hair mist, breath in while spraying. This makes skin feel ‘after rain’ soft.
After a short adjustment period your sweat glands return to their normal function: removing toxins from your body. Stronger body odor management products become unnecessary, as you are working with your natural detox system, not against it. Persistent strong body odor is a chemical message indicating an imbalance that needs to be fixed rather than covered. Reducing meat and/or dairy consumption usually does the job.
