Secret Deodorant is known for making people smell good and keeping them from sweating because it contains antiperspirant. Antiperspirant is a substance that is applied to the skin. It has a nice white creamy texture and smells very pleasant.
Most antiperspirants contain an ingredient called aluminum salts. They work to dissolve sweat and make a thin coating over your sweat glands for a number of hours after the antiperspirant deodorant is on your body. A sweat gland is a small gland that releases sweat.
According to the Environmental Working Group’s “Skin Deep” website, Secret deodorant got a decent score of 4 out of 10. The ingredient in Secret deodorant that receives the worst score is fragrance. Fragrance is usually a pleasant smell, but it has been linked to asthma, migraines and other negative impacts.
When the United States government did a study on fragrance it found out that perfume can cause trouble with breathing and can cause asthma and eczema. Eczema is a medical condition that causes parts of your skin to be rough and start blistering which can lead to bleeding and irritation. In 2007 fragrance was named ‘allergens of the year’ because fragrance allergy in children is a problem which is possibly but not yet actually avoidable.
When the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences located in India researched fragrance it found out that fragrance components were the most common allergen. An allergen is a substance that causes an allergic reaction. Which means that out of all the things a person could be allergic to, fragrance is the one that people are allergic to most often.
Secret deodorant may or may not cause you migraines or other negative impacts. In my opinion it works well. It can keep you from not sweating a lot and if you play a sport(s) it has a very good effect on you to not get as sweaty as you can get with other deodorants.
I would recommend this deodorant to other people because it helps a lot with sweating and it keep you from smelling bad, I personally will still use this product. Other healthy and good alternatives to Secret deodorant are clay and powders, astringents, and mineral salts. You can buy clay and powders, astringents, and mineral salts at Walgreens.
