Aluminum chlorohydrate

* A complex inorganic salt, formed by reacting aluminum with hydrochloric acid. See also Aluminum Oxide.

Functions:

Works by altering the pH balance of the skin and lessening the production of sweat. Mainly used in anti-perspirants and deodorants.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

This ingredient can irritate the skin, cause acne and aggravate razor burn for some people. Though there is no scientific evidence to support the idea, an overwhelming number of people believe that aluminum salts can lead to Breast Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. In 2002, The National Cancer Institute stated that they could find no link between aluminum salts and breast cancer. However, studies have proven aluminum to be a neurotoxin that may disturb the blood-brain barrier’s function. Furthermore, The Risk Assessment Information System, sponsored by the US Dept of Energy, says that it "may be involved" in Alzheimer's and Parkinsons.
