Aluminium is a metallic element used extensively in the manufacture of aircraft components, prosthetic devices and as an ingredient in antiperspirants, antacids and antiseptics. If your antiperspirant contains aluminium, there is a possibility it could be harming you. Antiperspirants do more than prevent perspiration: they also block the ability of the skin to flush out toxins, which can then seep down to the breasts. Excessive levels of aluminium have shown on some women with breast cancer. Aluminium has also been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.

It is generally believed that the skin acts as a protective barrier, yet it also acts as a transport system. When toxins are applied to the skin, they go straight to the blood and cannot be metabolised (neutralised) by the body. In spite of this knowledge, the ingredients in some of our most commonly used personal care products have not been changed. We may ask why, and I suspect the answer may partly be because they are cheap and easy to obtain.
Follow us and over the next few weeks we will take you through some of these potentially harmful ingredients.
I looked at a renewing cream of a popular brand today for aging skin. I was amazed to find that it contained 50 different ingredients many of which were unpronounceable. In contrast the Perrins Silk Comfort, for example, contains just 13 ingredients but every one of these is recognisable and completely natural. For example Beeswax, grape seed oil, Jasmine, Peppermint and Rosemary oils, Vitamins A,D, & E. Which would you rather have on your skin?
