Degree Deodorant is highly toxic skin care product. This product's official name is Degree Antiperspirant & Deodorant, Fresh Oxygen. The parent company Unilever had sales of 49.9 billion dollars in 2004. In the interests of disclosure this corporate behemoth was recently involved in a mercury scandal.
There is nothing positive about this product according to the ingredient label. The Degree Antiperspirant & Deodorant, Fresh Oxygen does not meet any natural ingredient parameter.
In fact, if you were to inject this chemical concoction into someone else's bloodstream you would be locked up. I do not say this lightly, as there are penetration agents - DISODIUM EDTA - in this product that enables it to pass into your bloodstream unhindered.
Tested on Animals?
It is not certified organic and it uses synthetic chemicals that have been tested on animals. Unilever outsource's animal testers so as not to get their hands dirty. The fact that it is not certified organic - obviously - means that there is a possibility the product contains G.M.O - genetically modified organisms - and pesticides.
The Degree Deodorant is quite literally a chemical soup with many of the ingredients never even tested for safety according to the C.I.R. - Cosmetic Ingredient Review. The chemicals that are certified by the C.I.R have been tested on animals.
This product contains these highly toxic ingredients, BHT which have been linked to cancer in animal tests.
Degree Antiperspirant & Deodorant, Fresh Oxygen contains chemicals that have not been assessed for safety in cosmetic formulas by the C.I.R.
These chemicals are: CITRIC ACID, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, SILICA, VEGETABLE OIL, DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, CORN STARCH, C18-36 ACID TRIGLYCERIDE.
Also present are penetration enhancers: PROPYLENE GLYCOL, LACTIC ACID. These agents work to infiltrate the skin membrane - i.e. penetration enhancer - and in doing so may increase exposures to carcinogens.
Of concern to sensitive people is the presence of - the vaguely termed - FRAGRANCE. This is an unspecified mixture of potentially hundreds of chemicals commonly used throughout the industry. Some problems caused by these chemicals are headaches, dizziness, rash, violent coughing, vomiting and skin irritation.
My advice is this. Don't fall for these fake "natural looking" products pushed on you by Unilever. Stay away from Degree Deodorant . If you use it now I strongly urge you to throw it in the trash.
Don't fill the coffers of a mega corp that KNOWINGLY uses toxic ingredients in their so called skin care products. Vote with your wallet and maybe Unilever in time will learn not to put their customer's health at risk.
Certified Organic Deodorant?
If you are someone who likes the peace of mind that your deodorant is certified organic I would refer you to the top rating aluminum free deodorant, a product I personally use and recommend.
