Product Description

Your deodorant shouldn’t stink! Last year, I (Dr. Fitt) went to pick up my usual brand, Old Spice. Their old formula was pretty basic and contained no aluminum, which has been associated with Alzheimer’s. When I read the label, I saw they had added not only aluminum, but cyclopentasiloxane*. I looked up information on the latter on <ewg.org> (see below). The Environmental Working Group publishes information on the safety of environmental chemicals. 

EWG lists cyclopentasiloxane as an “endocrine disrupter.” These are chemicals like DDT that mimic estrogens. These chemical estrogens are called “xenostrogens.” Xenoestrogens stimulate fat production in addition in addition to mimicking human estrogens. These chemicals cause premature breast growth/puberty in young girls. They cause breast growth, impotence and low sperm counts in men. Not having any interest in growing breasts or impotence, I formulated a deodorant for myself. 
 
Don’t Put Anything On Your Skin You Wouldn’t Eat! (That's what the name means!) Anything you put on your skin ends up in your bloodstream. The term “bioaccumulation” used in reference to cyclopentasiloxane means that the chemical builds up in your body over time. Dr. FITT's OMG DPAOYSYWE deodorant contains naturally occurring ingredients that allow you to stay dry and have a clean smell. The lavender fragrance is gender neutral.
