TOXIC- Deodorant

Anything you put on your skin gets absorbed into your skin. The problem with this is that unlike when you eat something and it makes it way though your digestive system, when it goes on your skin it can enter your bloodstream without filtering. Chemicals we place on our skin can mess with our reproductive systems and hormones so we need to be careful what we use.
