Ditching Toxins in Your Deodorant with a Primal Pit Paste Giveaway!

Ditching Toxins in Your Deodorant with a Primal Pit Paste Giveaway!

Not to gross you out but I sweat. I’ve been self conscious about my sweat and any smells that might be associated all my life. A lot of my friends made the switch to no deodorant or natural deodorant awhile ago. But for me, armpit cleansing and ditching my toxin filled deodorant seemed scary. What if I was so disgusting noone would want to be near me?

Despite my fears, I couldn’t ignore the growing statistics and studies that point to how the toxins in our deodorant can cause an increase in cancer. That scares me more than the sweat. After over a year of arguing with myself about when was a good time to start- read will I be able to hide away from the world for a month- I went to ShiftCon and decided enough was enough. 

A few years ago I met the awesome best friend team behind Primal Pit Paste at Expo East. They were at ShiftCon and we chatted again about life and of course their natural, toxin free deodorants. 

Still hesitant, but knowing the switch was best for me and for my future with my family, landed me here. Detoxing off of the junk I have been using for YEARS.

Following the tips included on Mamavation for an Armpit Cleanse, I picked up Baking Soda and a loofah.  First step: stop using your current deodorant. Then scrub your armpits with the loofah to remove dead skin and residual toxins. Apply baking soda to wet armpits and then Primal Pit Paste. 

You will notice an odor coming from your pits. It’s your body releasing all the toxins cooped up in your pores. When you smell it, scrub your armpits again adding the baking soda and Primal Pit Paste. It is normal to have to do this a few times a day, with the number decreasing as you continue to detox. Once your body stops smelling (smelling not sweating, sweating is normal!) you no longer have to use the baking soda.

It took about a week for my body to acclimate to the new deodorant and I no longer had to apply the baking soda paste with the deodorant.

Pinky promise it is not as bad or as scary as it sounds! Primal Pit Paste is an awesome product that works even for heavier sweaters is that the right word? like me. Check out their entire Product Line!

Why should you make the switch to natural deodorant?

Top 10 Reasons to Care About What is in Your Deodorant 

Parabens- Most deodorants, even those marked “natural,” still contain harmful ingredients like parabens that produce cancer-causing estrogens. No Parabens in PPP!

Aluminum- Contained in most deodorants and even disguised in some “healthy/natural” ones, aluminum is linked to Alzheimer’s. No Aluminum in PPP!

Fragrances- Fragrances are lab-created chemicals that are known to have negative health effects, and also trigger Asthma and allergies. No Fragrances in PPP!

Skin absorbency- It was once thought that our skin was a “barrier,” but with patch technology we now know it is a channel and pathway for detoxification that allows good and bad things in and out of the body. Skin actually absorbs good and healthy ingredients in PPP!

Sweating is good- You want to sweat to release toxins and it is a normal cooling response the body needs. WE LOVE SWEAT! BRING IT!

Odor- Odor is expected with the amount of chemicals we take in and the SAD (Standard American Diet) we eat. NO ODOR with PPP! Lasts, and some people have said for up to 2 days!

Misleading marketing- Some deodorants, even natural and organic ones like crystals and salt sprays, state that they have no aluminum chloride; but if you read the fine print they do have potassium alum. The full chemical name of potassium alum is potassium aluminum sulfate, which is still aluminum. All ingredients are disclosed on PPP and We are what we Say!

Works- More and more people say that most conventional and natural deodorants stop working and don’t last. PPP lasts! Even for extreme athletes in extreme heat! PPP will withstand all sports, endurance races, mud events, any WOD (CrossFit insider word for “work out of the day”), or CrossFit competition.

Staining and clumping- Most other deodorants leave clumps of who knows what on your pit. Or, they won’t wash off in the shower and leave yellow staining on shirts (that’s from the aluminum). NO aluminum, so no yellow stains or clumping on you pit!  PPP rubs in like butter!

Coolness Factor-The top 10 for sure reason to care about your deodorant is no other deodorant is cool and fun! PPP is cool! My Kids Love to use Primal Pit Paste for Kids!
