In 2009, I discovered a grape sized lump in my upper chest that would keep growing like an out-of-control chia pet. At that time, we didn’t know that it would almost take my life a few years later…
An incredible Doctor we found in Kelowna, BC, attributed this lump to a build up of toxins found in every day items we were using. Especially plastics containing endocrine & hormone disrupting toxins Things like: Phthalates, PVC, BPA & BPS which leech into our personal care products, our deodorants, our food and even our water….
This was the wake up call we needed to start eliminating toxins from our life…
As a company, we needed to become the first plastic-free deodorant company.
Right now one of the biggest stressors on the planet, animals and our future generations is PLASTIC… We’ve literally become a plastic society.
It’s a material the earth cannot digest. And every bit of plastic since it’s invention in 1907 still exists today. Let’s take a moment to really think about that.
We throw it out and forget about it. Most of it goes into landfills, water ways and ultimately the oceans.
Right now, plastic floating on the ocean outnumbers marine life SIX to ONE… and it’s not going away soon enough.
But what about us…. Plastic chemicals like BPA, PVC and Phthalates are absorbed by the body and studies show that they alter our hormones…
…these toxins in plastic disrupt the endocrine system, they can lead to ADHD, learning disabilities, cause tumors, bio-accumulate and directly effect the mammary glands just like what happened to me.
Scary part is that over 95% of ALL deodorants (EVEN NATURAL DEODORANTS) still come in highly toxic plastic packaging.
