Only antiperspirants also stop the flow of Sweat
Among the 21 products tested, 14 deodorants, protect against underarm odour, and seven antiperspirants to inhibit the flow of Sweat were. The latter usually contain aluminum salts, which are the outputs of the sweat glands constrict. Aluminum is not, however, suspected to promote diseases such as breast cancer and Alzheimer’s, scientifically this is proven, however. But it is certain that it can accumulate aluminum in the body and toxic in large quantities acts.
According to calculations by the Federal Institute for risk research, people who use a day, along with a Antitranspirantium to take, already, the amount of aluminum, which is still considered harmless. Many providers therefore do not use aluminum salts in Deodorants and to put their antiperspirants baking soda to the soaking up sweat. In the Test, you will be able to keep up but not with the aluminum-welding-blockers.
To verify the effectiveness of, the subjects, twice for 20 minutes in a 38 degrees Celsius temperature-controlled room, with and without deodorant protection. Tree wollpads under the armpits to absorbed the sweat. Their weight is revealed to the testers, later, as a lot of sweat was shed. The aluminum-antiperspirants ended as well as never, write the Tester.
The soda-Deos not have been able to convince to the contrary. The solid Deo T’eo of the natural cosmetics manufacturer Lush fell through completely. In addition, the leaflet failed to mention that the deodorant contains the allergenic fragrance substance Isoeugenol. The Tester rated it is, therefore, unsatisfactory. Also bad review of the Murnauers Kristall Deo Stick, which consists only of the aluminum salt is Ammonium Alum got, but according to the manufacturer, however, no sweat-inflammatory effect. Who puts a value on natural products, the testers recommend the Alterra Deo balm and the Alverde Sensitiv Deo.
