Pakai deodorant boleh sebabkan kanser?

I can walk 1km, sweating and still HOT (smells good).

Bluergh…mana ada.

Pagi2 siap2 kan apa yg patut, struggling with kids (kejut, layan request merapu2 di pagi hari dan hantar ke nursery) pun dah berpeluh ketiak..kalau tak pakai deadoran pulak 'masyam'. Kalau pakai pun ada hari still rasa 'masyam'..Tu tak termasuk pakai macam2 brand sbb nk try -test - cuba. Some brand pulak buat rasa tak selesa la, melekit la, and so on.

While looking for some information for upcoming product review, I stumble on this

Kalau google pun boleh keluar - Deodorant and antiperspirant can cause cancer.

Oh my bertahun dah pakai pun deodorant / antiperspirant ni..sekarang tarik nafas, chill baca dulu apa beza deodorant and antiperspirant ni. Source here

1. What are antiperspirants and deodorants?

Antiperspirants and deodorants are personal hygiene products designed to control sweating and body odour. Antiperspirants and deodorants contain ingredients that control sweat and body odour safely and effectively. They are readily available on the market as sprays (aerosol), sticks, creams or roll-ons.

2. Is there a difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant?

The terms ‘antiperspirant’ and ‘deodorant’ are often used interchangeably but they do in fact refer to different products.

Antiperspirants control sweat and body odour (B.O.) in two ways: firstly by preventing sweat reaching the skin surface and secondly by eliminating the bacteria that causes body odour via antimicrobial ingredients.

Deodorants differ from antiperspirants as they only contain antimicrobial agents to prevent body odour; they do not control the flow of sweat.
Both antiperspirants and deodorants often contain fragrances to help mask the smell of B.O.

3. How does an antiperspirant work?

When an antiperspirant is applied to the skin surface, its active ingredients – usually aluminium salts – dissolve in the sweat or moisture on the skin surface of the armpit. The dissolved substance forms a gel, which creates a small temporary ‘plug’ near the top of the sweat gland, significantly reducing the amount of sweat that is secreted to the skin surface. Bathing and washing will remove the antiperspirant gel. Re-application of antiperspirants can be beneficial to help reduce sweating and keep fresh throughout the day.  Antiperspirants reduce underarm sweating but they do not impact on the natural ability of the body to control its temperature (thermoregulation).

4. What ingredients are in antiperspirants and deodorants? 

Antiperspirants and deodorants contain a number of ingredients to minimise sweating and help people feel fresh, cool and smelling good.

Among ingredients - Alcohol, aluminium salts, antimicrobials, fragrance and skin conditioners, carrier substances, parabens, propellants

Now move to the main topic here

Do antiperspirants increase a person's risk of breast cancer?

There are no strong epidemiologic studies in the medical literature that link breast cancer risk and antiperspirant use, and very little scientific evidence to support this claim. Source here

Kalau baca2 lagi through few website

But it isn’t clear that much aluminum is absorbed through the skin. One study that looked at the absorption of aluminum from antiperspirants containing aluminum chlorohydrate applied to the underarms found that only a tiny fraction (0.012%) was absorbed

So far, researchers haven't found a definite link between aluminum and breast cancer

The dangers of aluminum, however, are still very real. People without fully functioning kidneys should be wary of using antiperspirant, which is why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires a warning label on all antiperspirants stating that people with kidney disease should consult a doctor before using them.

For alternative option, choose deodorant aluminium free. Some of it
