Introduction

Secret deodorant is highly toxic skin care product. This product's official name is Secret Platinum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Clear Gel. The parent company Proctor & Gamble had sales of 55 billion dollars in 2004.


In the interests of disclosure this corporate behemoth is no stranger to toxic scandals. New tests have confirmed TBT poison in Proctor & Gamble Baby products: as reported by Greenpeace.


Positives

There is nothing positive about this product according to the ingredient label. The Secret Platinum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Clear Gel 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, PROPYLENE GLYCOL 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. Proctor & Gamble 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.


Negatives


The Secret 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.


Reproductive Toxicity

This product contains one ingredient - ALCOHOL DENATURED - linked to reduced fertility and a reduced chance for a full term healthy pregnancy.


Penetration Enhancers


Also present are penetration enhancers: PROPYLENE GLYCOL. These agents work to infiltrate the skin membrane - i.e. penetration enhancer - and in doing so may increase exposures to carcinogens.


Untested Chemicals


Secret Platinum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Clear Gel contains chemicals that have not been assessed for safety in cosmetic formulas by the C.I.R.

These chemicals are: ALCOHOL DENATURED, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, PEG/ PPG-18/ 18 DIMETHICONE.


Fragrance

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.


Recommendation


My advice is this. Don't fall for these fake "natural looking" products pushed on you by Proctor and Gamble. Stay away from Secret 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 Proctor and Gamble 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.
