What’s NOT in Type:A deodorant

Aluminum Some things just don’t belong in your personal care. Aluminum is used in antiperspirants to plug your sweat ducts, and there’s a lot of negative buzz surrounding it, so we’re steering clear.
Parabens Preservatives that are known hormone disruptors? No thank you. Our sweat-activated formula is free from preservatives and can still stand the test of time.
Propylene glycol This chemical is commonly found in traditional stick deodorants (hint: tubes are better!), and can irritate your skin.
“Fragrance” What’s in a “fragrance” anyways? We don’t know either. And in most cases, it often includes synthetic chemicals that could be unsafe. That’s why we list all scent ingredients on our labels.
Phthalates A plasticizing chemical used to make deodorant scents last longer. It’s also used in insecticide, and has been linked to birth defects, so that’s a hard pass.
Polyethylene glycol AKA PEGs, these cosmetics thickeners come with a side of potential carcinogens. We prefer our thickeners clean.
