Last Day for Big Labor Day Sale on (MoM) Deodorant!

This is the last day you can purchase our aluminum-free, herbal fragrance MoM roll-on deodorant at 40% off the standard price. Stock up!

Have you tried our aluminum-free MoM deodorant? If you love it, have you told your friends about it? We are offering a Labor Day sale of 40% off our herbal-fragrance deodorant. If you want to skip the blah-blah and go straight to the sale, here is the link. No discount code needed. The normal price is $7.50. Our 40% off sale price is $4.50. Prices on our aluminum-free MoM deodorants will soon rise because of the increased cost of materials and shipping. This is a great opportunity to stock up at this link. Today, September 9, 2022 is the last day for this super sale on this MoM aluminum-free deodorant. No other MoM deodorant is on sale, though. Sorry.

What Is the Problem with Aluminum in Your Armpits?

Most people do not think twice when it comes to spritzing their pits. They assume that the FDA is protecting them from harmful ingredients in body care products. But not that long ago there were reports of the carcinogen benzene in some very popular antiperspirant body sprays. You can read about that disaster at this link.

What about aluminum? The FDA requires that all antiperspirants must contain aluminum. Part of the problem is that no one knows how much aluminum you absorb through your skin. If that skin is abraded because you just shaved your underarms, you might possibly absorb quite a bit.

Does that matter? Here again, the answer is that no one knows for sure. But there are some studies that trouble us. Here are some recent articles:

The authors of this study write in the journal Free Radical Biology & Medicine (Aug. 23, 2022):

“Mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, inflammation and glucose dysmetabolism are pathological signs of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Dietary aluminum (Al) overload is often used to induce AD in rodents and trigger the onset of oxidative-stress hallmarks resembling those of the human disease.”

Writing in the journal Pharmaceuticals (Aug. 17, 2022) the authors state:

“Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is associated with abnormal cognition. AD is aided in its initiation and progression by hereditary and environmental factors. Aluminum (Al) is a neurotoxic agent that causes oxidative stress, which is linked to AD progression.”

Researchers offer this conclusion in the journal Molecules (Aug. 11, 2022):

“Based on the data currently available we speculate that one way aluminum contributes to neurological disease is to induce the misfolding of naturally occurring proteins into altered pathological configurations that contribute to the neurodegenerative disease process.”

One review concluded that aluminum along with other minerals, including arsenic, lead, manganese, mercury and selenium, can damage brain cells (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, Dec. 5, 2017). This may contribute to neurological conditions such as Parkinson disease (Current Medicinal Chemistry, 2018), autism spectrum disorder (Current Environmental Health Reports, Dec. 2017) or Alzheimer disease (Advances in Neurobiology, 2017).

What About Magnesium?

In contrast to aluminum, which is toxic, magnesium is an essential mineral. As a result, we feel pretty comfortable putting milk of magnesia (MoM) on our skin. And we have found that it helps us smell better (maybe because of its effect on skin microbes).

What Readers Say:

We are not the only ones. Here are some testimonials from readers:

Krista from Pfafftown, NC, wrote:

“Love the MOM deodorant. For all the reasons you mentioned. Please make one with a manly name so my 13 yr old grandson will use it. Seriously!”

That is why we developed Men’s MoM Krista. It is on sale this coming week at 40% discount. Here is a link to the sale price of $4.50. Lest women think they are being left out, we want to emphasize that the herbal fragrance is delightful and women love it too! So, moms love Men’s MoM and can also save 40% by going to this link.

Yvonne in Blackshear, GA, is enthusiastic:

“For several years every deodorant I tried would after a week would begin peeling the skin from under my arms. I tried MOM about two weeks ago. PRESTO! No sore underarms. I am very happy with MOM.”

Maryann in Buffalo, NY, was initially skeptical:

“I recently ordered a bottle of MOM; I only ordered one because I wanted to make sure it worked. Wow, did it ever! The testimonials on this product are to be believed! I had a funky (my description; not exactly body odor!) odor under one armpit when I would sweat excessively. I used a non-aluminum deodorant (Tom’s of Maine). It did not stop the odor. However, MOM has! I love it! Will be ordering more.”

So was Chuck in Raleigh, NC:

“I purchased one bottle of the MOM a couple months or more ago to give it a try as I have always been concerned about the aluminum in regular antiperspirant products. In the past, I  always used the strongest product I could find to prevent sweating and odor. I quite frankly was not expecting the MOM to be effective for me as I have tried different alternative products before.

“After trying MOM I was highly surprised and even shocked that it was more effective for me than all of the deodorants I had ever used and ordered six bottles. Wow! It is a little more costly, but it is certainly worth it and the Peace of Mind I get from eliminating aluminum is more than worth the cost.”

We believe we were the first company to offer aluminum-free milk of magnesia (MoM) deodorants. We have never advertised this product except to mention it on our website. It is only sold in a handful of health food stores. This is your chance to save 40% during our Labor Day sale. The sale ends today, September 9, 2022, so act now before the price goes up due to supply chain problems and increased shipping costs. Here is a link. No discount code is necessary.

We hope you will spread the word and let your family and friends know and try it for themselves.
