Did you know that sweat fights off infections? It’s true! Sweat contains a compound called dermicidin that kills off harmful bacteria before they get inside your body.
The bacteria on your skin is then left to grow, multiply and get into your bloodstream. So yeah, stay away from antiperspirant. You should be careful about commercial deodorant too; most contain harmful toxins that cause cancer, Alzheimer’s and reproductive damage.
In other words, it stops the odor from appearing instead of just masking it like deodorant does.
