Do you know what’s in your deodorant?

Do you know what’s in your deodorant?

I found a great app, recommended by another instagrammer, called yuka_app. You can use it to scan product barcodes and find out *exactly* what is in them.

Have a look at the picture to see some of the nasties in my daughter’s deodorant. Needless to say, we’ll be having a conversation about this!

Endocrine disruptors, allergens and potential carcinogens are NOT good for you, and can have a significant negative impact on your fertility.

I challenge you to download the app and scan a few items at home. You can use it for food, as well as health and beauty products. Check sanitary items, skin products, shave foam and toothpaste. Let me know if you’ll be making some swaps when you’ve done it! Yuka helpfully suggests better (safer) alternatives for you. Download the app from your preferred app store.

If you want some tips on reducing your toxic load whilst preparing to conceive, and where to buy, I’ve made a quick file that you can access here: Reduce chemical exposure.
