Alvera All-Natural deodorant is made from non-toxic ingredients, such as witch hazel and grapefruit seed, as well as arnica and calendula herbal extracts. It doesn’t contain aluminum, an ingredient found in nearly all of the antiperspirants you see at the drugstore.
Some alternative health practitioners believe this toxic heavy metal is contributing to the rising incidence of breast cancer, a disease that strikes 232,000 women each year in the United States alone. Dr. Joseph Mercola, DO, warns against applying anything with aluminum to the sensitive underarm area.
Although there’s no conclusive proof this is dangerous, on his website, Dr. Mercola points to studies showing elevated levels of aluminum in the tissue of women with breast cancer.
I have used other all-natural deodorants that were marginally effective in controlling sweat and odor. However, Alvera works just as well as any conventional brand. It is also free of parabens, another class of suspected carcinogens.Buy Now
