Some research studies have suggested that the use of antiperspirant may lead to breast cancer. Although the research studies are not conclusive and some experts argue that this theory has never been proven, there’s enough evidence to make me worry. With so much hype linking breast cancer to the use of antiperspirants, you may be ready to ditch your deodorant and go au naturel. But wait! I was recently introduced to an awesome alternative. Pachy Natural Deodorant by Rustic Maka is an all-natural deodorant without the potentially harmful ingredients found in store bought deodorant/antiperspirants.
The Danger of Antiperspirants
The concerning ingredient in antiperspirants is aluminum salt. It may be listed as: aluminum chloride, aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium compounds. Aluminum-based compounds temporarily plug the sweat glands to prevent you from perspiring. Most antiperspirants are coupled with a deodorant, which contains fragrance to prevent you from stinking. These combos typically contain a variety of other “inactive ingredients”. Some experts argue the studies linking aluminum and breast cancer have not been validated, yet there’s enough evidence to be concerning.
Natural Deodorant Alternative
The great news is that we don’t have to use possibly dangerous chemicals to smell sweet and feel confident. I can’t imagine my life without deodorant! So, I’m thrilled to have a gentle alternative to possible cancer-causing, aluminum based antiperspirant/deodorants. Pachy Natural deodorant, created by Rustic Maka was designed as an alternative to store bought deodorants.

My Experience with Pachy Deodorant
I had never used a natural deodorant before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. The deodorant came packaged in an easy to use twist up tube. I was absolutely thrilled with the scent! I received one large deodorant in Calming Fields scent and a Sample Set. I decided to seriously put this deodorant to the test, so I applied it before heading to the gym. I did an hour of pretty intense cardio and was a little nervous to do the “sniff test”. I was shocked to pass the sniff test. I still smelled fresh after my intense workout. THIS STUFF REALLY WORKS! Just remember, it’s not an antiperspirant so you’ll still sweat while using it. We’re meant to sweat, it seems unnatural to plug our sweat glands with an antiperspirant in my opinion!
