SOMETIMES, THE TRUTH STINKS.
Grocery store antiperspirants have become the most common solution to bromhidrosis, or what most of us affectionately refer to as B.O. We smear these sticks of who-knows-what on our bodies day in and day out, often unaware of the havoc they may be wreaking internally. You see, most antiperspirants out there contain chemicals like aluminum chloride and parabens that have potential links to breast cancer, lymph node cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and liver disease. The American Journal of Public Health published a report showing that on average, 64% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body and some studies show nearly 100% of what we put on our armpits is absorbed into our body. Where does it go after being absorbed? Right into your bloodstream. We think this stinks pretty badly.
Enter Humble. Humble was conceived in the kitchen of our founder who was frustrated with the existing selection of antiperspirants and all-natural deodorants.
After countless concoctions and tests, he finally created a product that works. Humble contains four to five organic and all-natural ingredients that you can pronounce (and might, in fact, have in your own kitchen). Humble is both effective and safe, containing no aluminum or parabens while still keeping you dry and free of offensive odors. We take the care to manufacture our deodorant in small batches right here in America. With the fewest ingredients of any deodorant on the market, Humble is the simple solution to a stinky problem.
Sometimes the Truth Stinks
DO YOU KNOW WHAT LURKS IN THAT DEODORANT YOU ARE USING?
Parabens are a group of chemicals used in a variety of everyday products to prevent bacteria and fungi growth. Parabens are known to cause skin issues such as dermatitis and rosacea. They disturb the body’s natural balance of hormones by imitating estrogen, which can lead to troubling imbalances. Some studies have examined a possible link between parabens and breast cancer, because of the hormonal problems they can create.
Aluminum is another nasty chemical that can be found in antiperspirants. Aluminum clogs the pores in our pits to reduce sweat. This interrupts one of the natural detoxification processes of our body. Aluminum disrupts hormones in our bodies, and some studies have linked this disruption to breast cancer as well. It has been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and other issues like kidney problems and bone disorders.
Propylene glycol is used to increase absorption and helps keep substances from drying out. Propylene glycol is a neurotoxin and skin irritant. It could cause damage to your central nervous system, heart, and liver.
Phthalates help consistency of personal care products. It is known to increase the likelihood of cell mutation and disrupt hormone receptors which in turn increases the risk of birth defects.

Triclosan is antimicrobial which means it kills bacteria, fungus, and other microbes. It has been classified as a pesticide by the FDA and a probable carcinogen by the EPA. Triclosan has been linked to a number of different problems including thyroid problems, increased risk of cancer, and increased hay fever and allergy symptoms.

DAY IN AND DAY OUT, WITH OUT EVEN REALIZING IT, WE PUT HARMFUL CHEMICALS IN OUR BODIES.
Not convinced? Data shows trends are sliding in Humble’s direction.
Aluminum is linked to Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, and a slew of other nasty problems. Found in all anti-perspirants, Aluminum clogs your pores and is toxic to your body. Humble uses all-natural, familiar ingredients to keep you dry.
We don’t test our products on anyone but ourselves! No animals are used or harmed in the creation of our cruelty-free deodorant.
Parabens are found all over the place and they aren’t doing anyone any favors. These cheap, anti-bacterial chemical preservatives do more harm than good and have been associated with disrupting hormones, the endocrine system and even breast cancer. Nature offers better than this, and Humble has taken advantage.
Humble lets nature speak for herself. We see no need in altering the beauty of what already works amazingly well. All our ingredients that can be organic, are organic!
