6 Reasons to Make the Switch to Aluminum-Free Deodorant

6 Reasons to Make the Switch to Aluminum-Free Deodorant

In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the potential health risks associated with using deodorants that contain aluminum. Many people are now opting for aluminum-free deodorants as a safer and more natural alternative. Here are 6 reasons you should switch to an aluminum-free deodorant like SONDR today:

1. Healthier

When absorbed through the skin, aluminum has been linked to health concerns like hormone disruption, breast cancer and Alzheimer's. Aluminum based antiperspirants may also affect kidney function, especially in those with kidneys that are not in perfect health.

By choosing aluminum-free deodorants, like SONDR you can reduce not only your exposure to this potentially harmful ingredient but also that of your breast-feeding baby, making a healthier choice for your body and your growing child's.

2. Gentler on skin

Skin irritation and sensitivity often result from deodorants containing aluminum and harsh chemicals. Using an aluminum-free deodorant can relieve these issues and help those with sensitive skin. The natural ingredients in aluminum-free deodorants are gentler, reducing the likelihood of irritation for daily use.

3. Our bodies are made to sweat 

Our bodies are highly intelligent, with intricate systems in place for specific purposes. Sweating serves as our internal climate control mechanism, regulating body temperature to prevent conditions like heat stroke, heart attack, and stroke. Additionally, sweating benefits skin health, aids in body detoxification, and reduces the risk of kidney stones.


But just because we want our bodies to sweat, doesn't mean we need to be concerned about body odour or feel less than fresh. Enter, SONDR.

4. Unclogged pores & better smelling sweat, naturally!

Air pollution, personal care products, bacteria, and other toxins enter our bodies daily through our skin. These toxins must be eliminated from our bodies. Deodorants and antiperspirants containing aluminum can block our pores, preventing the release of these toxins.

The presence of toxins in our bodies can lead to health risks, swollen lymph nodes, and increased odour in our sweat. Along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle such as staying hydrated, sweating helps reduce body odour naturally.

5. Less pit stains

The interaction of our body's natural chemistry and compounds in aluminum-based antiperspirants and deodorants, such as aluminum chloride, leads to a chemical reaction that often results in yellowish stains on clothing.

Ingredients found in naturally derived deodorants, like SONDR, are more gentle and compatible with a variety of fabrics, reducing the chances of armpit stains caused by chemical reactions. 

Some aluminum-free deodorants may still cause white residue and stains due to baking soda or talc. All SONDR deodorants are free of baking soda and talc, ensuring clean clothes and healthy skin.

6. Better for the environment

Clean, aluminum-free deodorants like SONDR are formulated with natural and biodegradable ingredients, which have a lower impact on water quality and ecosystems. Aluminum is not easily biodegradable and can remain in the environment for hundreds of years if not recycled properly.

SONDR takes it one step further, by ensuring that environmentally harmful ingredients like Ozokerite Wax and Palm Oil are not used in the formulation of our natural deodorant. All of our ingredients are sustainably sourced, using eco-friendly farming practices, reducing the environmental impact of our products.  

 SONDR is a plastic neutral company and proudly partnered with CleanHub.
