We do want you to have that confident little voice inside you that says ?it?s go time? to be the loudest.
We do want you to be super duper amazeballs healthy.
So come with us and get sweaty, feel the rush and stay fresh.
Fun Sweaty Fact #1 ? Your sweat doesn?t actually smell. What causes BO (body odour) is the bacteria that start munching on proteins in the sweat. They break down the proteins into acids and that?s what smells.
Why we should we sweat with pride
Antiperspirants are not the answer as sweating is not real the problem.
We love sweat, the sting your eyes sweat, the dripping down your nose sweat, the t-shirt drenching sweat because it usually means you are working hard towards something great or having an awesome time.
Sweating is normal and healthy. These are just some of the good things that sweating does for your body:
- Cooling you down and preventing overheating
- Releases endorphins
- May help to expel toxins such as BPA, phthalates and heavy metals
- Kills bacteria and viruses than can?t live in temperatures above 37C
- Keeps pores clear
- Reduces your chance of kidney stones
- May help to fight skin infections
So it is pretty cool stuff, and it makes you think ?why you would want to stop it??
Especially if you could sweat without the fear of stinky-ness.
Fun Sweaty Fact #2 ? Women have more sweat glands than men. But the men?s are more active and that is why they sweat more.
Deodorants vs Antiperspirants
Deodorants and Antiperspirants are NOT?the same thing.
Antiperspirants use aluminium salts to either block, close or clog your pores to prevent you from sweating. In Australia they are classed and regulated as therapeutic goods because they alter your body?s normal function.
Deodorants don?t interfere with you pores or glands so they still let you sweat. Deodorants work by creating an environment on your skin that prevents bacteria from having a wild party stinking up the joint.
Fun Sweaty Fact #3 ? Stress sweat smells worse than exercise sweat. This is because it comes from different glands where the sweat has a higher percentage of proteins and fats compared to exercise sweat. The bacteria go nuts for the extra protein and fats and gorge on it like its Christmas dinner.
The problem with aluminium salts
Aluminium chloride, aluminium zirconium, aluminium chlorohydrate and aluminium hydroxybromide are all commonly used in antiperspirants. Aluminium is not normally found in your body so a big red flag is raised when researchers find it in our tissue. It shows that our body absorbs aluminium.
Aluminium is a neurotoxin and it has links to some serious health concerns. The jury is still out on this research, but we’d rather be safe than sorry.?Aluminium has also been found to disrupt your endocrine system by mimicking the hormone estrogen, which is more cause for concern.
It?s also the culprit for staining your clothes yellow!
So as you can see, it?s important to embrace the sweat and ditch antiperspirants.
That is why we have created Woohoo All Natural Deodorant Paste that?s aluminium free but still obliterates odour all day.
?Fun Sweaty Fact #4 ? Anthropologist Louis Leakey suspects that our body odour comes from our ancient?defense?system to stop animals from eating us.
