2. May contain dangerous chemicals
There are several chemical compounds in deodorants that you keep messing your health each day you use this product. This is a serious danger than toxins swallowed orally because chemicals exposed to your skin enter the bloodstream without undergoing metabolism.
3. Misleading advertisements
Several advertisements give misleading information about their products and deodorants adverts are not an exception. They will tell you that smelly armpits are the worst turnoff. Others will make you believe that the use of a deodorant is a show of social status. This is not an absolute truth.
