Should you stop using deodorant?

Should you stop using deodorant?

The deodorants, perfumes and soaps that keep us smelling good are fouling the air with a harmful type of pollution — at levels as high as emissions from today’s cars and trucks. 

That’s the find of a study published last week in the journal Science. Researchers found that petroleum-based chemicals used in perfumes, spray deodorants and other consumer products can, taken together, emit  air pollution in the form of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs.  The VOCs interact with other particles in the air to create the building blocks of smog, namely ozone, which can trigger asthma and permanently scar the lungs, and another type of pollution known as PM2.5, fine particles that are linked to heart attacks, strokes and lung cancer.
There are tens of thousands of chemicals in consumer products, and researchers have not yet pinpointed which chemicals are most likely to form ozone particles. “One of the things that we’re hoping the public takes away from this is that our energy sources and the consumer products we use every day are continually changing the composition of our atmosphere,” Gilman said.
For consumers looking for a greener solution, experts say “Use as little of the product as you can to get the job done.” Natural products such as dermaglove Skin Supplement and Body Mist are great alternative to aerosols deodorant and perfumes. They restore your skin's outer layer while infusing nutrition that repairs the skin from the inside out.
