There are five essential things you have to do before leaving your house for the day: brushing your teeth, picking up your smartphone, house keys, and wallet in your pockets, and… applying deodorant.
Be it roll-ons or sprays, few people risk leaving the house without putting on deodorant. There are some fortunate ones who don’t need it at all, but those are extremely rare cases. Deodorants are a highly praised invention and an essential personal hygiene product.
Everybody agrees on that. In fact, alum was the first product to be used as a deodorant, way before the first modern commercial deodorant became available in 1888 – it was called Mum and was developed in the United States. But, over the past few years, there has been a generalized growing concern over the potentially harmful side effects of deodorant.
What exactly a deodorant does to your body and how does it harm you? That is what you are about to find out.
