Benefits of the botanicals used in ATLAS DEODORANT:
Beeswax is an antibacterial, anti inflammatory, and hydrating that has a high concentration of vitamin A. Beeswax is calming and soothing when applied topically and it can help keep your skin hydrated and healthy. It will not suffocate or clog your pores, and it can help heal and protect your skin. It has a natural rich honey smell, which is calming and uplifting to the mind, body and soul.
Shea Butter contains natural vitamins and fatty acids making it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It can aid in reducing inflammation due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties.
Raw Cacao Butter contains polyphenol antioxidants found in belong to the same group of antioxidants as green tea and red wine. These anthocyanins (found in dark colored fruits) and catechins (found in green tea) protect our cells from premature oxidation or destruction and can keep us looking and feeling younger longer with a silky smoothing feel.
Arrowroot powder excels in moisture-absorbing properties. It is an anti-inflammatory and also can work as an antiseptic, making it perfect for irritated areas.
Kaolin Clay is another moisture absorbing compound that is safe on sensitive skin.
ATLAS CEDAR aids antiseptic properties, as well as detoxing effects.
SIBERIAN & FRASIER FIR can detoxify the body, and reduce body odor.
JUNIPER aids in calming and detoxification.
BERGAMOT is an antibacterial, as well as possessing a calming effect.
ATLAS Deodorant is not an anti-perspirant. It will not stop the body’s natural sweat generating process because it does not contain aluminum. Antiperspirants are made with chemicals that block and clog the pours, which blocks the secretion of the sweat glands. Body odor happens as a result of the body ridding itself of toxins, which is bacteria breaking down protein into certain acids. Our deodorant makes the skin more acidic, making it difficult for bacteria to thrive. A couple of tips to augment the effectiveness of our deodorant: 1) Keep the armpits clean by washing them regularly keeping the bacteria count low, resulting in less body odor. 2) Armpits with hair slow down the evaporation of sweat giving the bacteria more time to break it down into smelly stuff. Shaving the armpits regularly has been found to help control body odor control in that area.
