The most common symptoms that arise from deodorant allergies are a redness that spreads under the armpit along with the need to scratch. Both of these, if experienced, should warn you immediately of an allergy to your deodorant. Some deodorants will cause only slight rednes, and perhaps a minor itching sensations or a bit of dry skin, while others can cause full blown rash, complete with oozing blisters, and peeling skin. Neither of these symptoms of deodorant allergies are particularly harmful, but can become extremely painful if left untreated.
If you think you may be suffering from deodorant allergies, there are a few things that you should do. The first of which is to stop using that particular brand of deodorant immediately. If you have had the same reaction to several different brands of deodorant, you may be allergic to the aluminum contained in many underarm deodorant products. If an aluminum compound, such as aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium, which are very soluble, is used as an antiperspirant, that compound is readily absorbed. Once in the body, the aluminum portion of the molecule ionizes, forming free or radical aluminum (Al+++). This passes freely across cell membranes, and forms a physical plug, that when dissoved is selectively absorbed by the liver, kidney, brain, cartilage and bone marrow. It is this concentration of aluminum that has been the source of concern in the medical community and has prompted the research being done on ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE and BREAST CANCER victioms. Potassium alum molecules have a negative ionic charge, making it unable to pass through the cell wall. THEY ARE NOT ABSORBED. This is why Milcu Deodorant Powder is safe to use and will not cause high levels of ALUMINUM in your system. ALUM and ALUMINUM are two different substances, with distinct chemical signatures. They possess different chemical properties which create different chemical atributes. This information is provided to alleviate any concerns about the safety of our Milcu Deodorant Powder.
