Q. What ingredients are used in Stop Sweat Fix?
Q. Is aluminium in antiperspirant safe?
If you’ve used an antiperspirant before, chances are you’ve come across aluminium. There is no scientific research to suggest that any of the ingredients used in antiperspirants, including aluminium, are damaging to your health. Antiperspirants and deodorants are effective and safe to use on a regular basis.
And while many people are under the impression that antiperspirants prevent the “sweating out” of harmful toxins, there is no scientific evidence that validates this claim. In fact, experts argue against this notion based on two facts:
- Toxins are removed from the body through the liver and kidneys and not through sweating
- Underarm antiperspirants do not alter the body’s overall ability to sweat to any significant degree. Sweat is produced from 5 million sweat glands all over the body, and antiperspirants and deodorants are only applied to the underarm area, where approximately 1% of sweat is produced. Underarm sweat is usually more noticeable to us because it doesn’t evaporate as easily.
An overview of the extensive research conducted on antiperspirant safety can be found on sweathelp.org, where there are quotes from the likes of the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, Alzheimer’s Association, and breastcancer.org. All of these organisations report there is no scientific proof of a connection between the aluminium in antiperspirants and any of the respective diseases studied.
Q. How does the active ingredient aluminium chloride hexahydrate work?
Antiperspirants including those with aluminium chloride hexahydrate control the flow of sweat from the sweat glands in the skin. When aluminium combines with moisture (like sweat), it dissolves to form a superficial gel that sits on our skin. That gel acts as a barrier on the skin's surface. This inhibits the flow of sweat to the surface and reduces the wet feeling associated with sweating.
Studies show that aluminium chloride hexahydrate has been proven to be the most effective aluminium ingredient in antiperspirants.
