Why You Should Be Using CBD Spray Deodorant
At Ology Essentials we are pro-sweating, but anti-stinking. We believe in the power of sweat. We just don’t want you to overpower those around you with stink—so we created Ology Essentials She, Elevate, and Earthen CBD spray deodorants. And we purposefully chose to make deodorants and not antiperspirants. Why? Because sweat is good. Your body was designed to sweat. Why not let the body do what it was designed to do?
Ology Essentials CBD spray deodorants are decades in the making. You see, our Chief Formulator, could not find any deodorant on the market that didn’t either cause hives, rashes, and swollen lymph glands. She started making a variety of natural stick deodorants in search of something she could use. But no matter how natural the product was she still had the lymph glands under her arms responding with painful swelling with every variation she tried. It did not seem to matter what ingredient she left out or replaced.
After much trial and error she set about making a spray deodorant. Eventually she came up with a spray deodorant formula that worked amazingly for her and did not cause any reaction in her body. Hallelujah! The downside was that the finished formula was expensive. She spent a good decade just using the product herself, thinking it was not going to be marketable. She spent the next decade with people complimenting her on how amazing she smelled–strangers literally followed her around in stores because they found her aroma so intoxicating. When they would stop her to talk to her she would say, “Thanks. It’s my deodorant.” And laugh it off.
But the interest level finally convinced her to see if others would want to try it too. She had added hemp CBD one time when she was feeling under the weather and liked the results so her formula had already morphed to include hemp CBD. The response has been amazing to the Ology Essentials deodorant line. Our number one selling version is the She Deodorant–which just happens to be the one Kayla has been using for the past decade.
Sweating is an important mechanism of your body’s temperature regulation. Sweat is mostly made up of water, but small amounts of toxins are also released through sweat—and who wants to stop any percentage of toxin release? Certainly not us. There is debate about whether or not sweat removes toxins. The article, Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, and Mercury in Sweat: A Systematic Review, in the National Library of Medicine confirms the importance of sweat, “Along with essential minerals, sweat is an acknowledged excretory route for toxic metals.” The same abstract goes on to say, “Arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury may be excreted in appreciable quantities through the skin, and rates of excretion were reported to match or even exceed urinary excretion in a 24-hour period” (Sears, Kerr, and Bray.)
Antiperspirants block glands from sweating, generally with the use of aluminum. While some say that aluminum is not a problem in skincare, we prefer to err on the side of caution. Many theories have linked aluminum in antiperspirants to both breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. There are no definitive answers for either side of that debate. We see no harm in skipping the unknown in this case. How does aluminum work in antiperspirants? When moist aluminum in antiperspirants create a gel that plugs up the sweat ducts and creates a temporary barrier to stop sweat.
We believe in sweating and smelling good while you do it! Mix those pheromones, essential oils, and sweat into your own unique and beautiful aroma. No barriers here!
