Let them know WE WON'T BUY IT!!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Thank you both so much for that link and for the previous thread, I must've missed it. I bookmarked it right away!

LOL Ani - tell me about it.

I love the cosmetics database, found some great products that way.

Go to this link and type any ingredients in your deoderant that you are unsure of. It will give you a rating that shows how toxic the ingredient is. You will see that the glyceryl laurate in your deodorant has a rating of 3. You can then look to see why they gave it that rating. 3 isn't horrible; anything above that starts getting bad. 0 is best.

There are a lot of deodorants on the market that have absolutely nothing toxic in them at all. Go to the old thread and you will see a lot of suggestions.

Most all commercial body care products are toxic...just for your information. The Cosmetic Data Base is fantastic for looking up ingredients.

Best of health to all

Not sure if this one was listed on the original thread but I switched to "Tom's" organic natural. The scent is lemongrass. I love it. Yes, I occasionally feel damp (but not quite sweaty at work) but that's okay with me. I'd rather not smell though and the lemongrass is very fresh and clean.

Once I actually sweat it's fine too... It hasn't damaged any clothes either.

There was a thread either here or in the clean eating & recipes group that had a long discussion. I'll see if I can find the link. Maybe someone else remembers it?

I've been reading a lot of negative things about deodorant and anti-perspirant. I plan on switching to a "natural" type. Any one doing this yet and if so any suggestions and where can I buy it?
