AXE Dry 24 Hour Anti-Perspirant Deodorant is a deodorant for teen boys or men. Axe Dry anti-perspirant keeps you dry. Men or boys use this deodorant for sports or exercise because they can sweat a lot and it is hard work to play any sport. People use this product because they don’t want their arms to smell.
Some ingredients in this product include Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex GLY 17.8%,Cyclopentasiloxane, PPG-14 Butyl Ether, Stearyl Alcohol, Talc, Fragrance, BHT and more. These ingredients may sound destructive but really, the worst ingredients in this deodorant are the ones that sound the safest – Fragrance and BHT.
Fragrances are a kind of scent used to cover stenches or to make you smell good. They get a score of 8 out of 10 from the Environmental Working Group though, because they can cause allergies; irritate your skin, eyes or lungs; and mess up your immune system.
Many products have BHT to preserve your food so that it won’t rot. BHT is bad for your body because it can cause cancer tumors to grow in your lungs, cause skin reactions and can hurt your ability to have kids. Kids may be in danger from toy products like toy make-up. Fragrance in the toy makeup can make you or any of your friends get a skin rash. In 1999 they did a study at the National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark that showed that kids are already highly affected by too much fragrance in their toys.
Twenty percent of kids deal with problems from fragrance. If you are suffering from asthma, rashes or allergies you should stop using your products for a few weeks and see fragrance is causing your problem. After researching AXE we believe that this product is dangerous and we do not recommend it. Instead use Coastal Classic Creations Wave Crest Deodorant. Thank You.
