What's the deal with natural deodorants?

What's the deal with natural deodorants?

This week we're launching our NEW Natural Probiotic Deodorant, Pure Protection. What makes this deodorant different, besides being natural? Simple, it works! Over the past 3 years, I've personally tried at least a dozen different natural deodorants...none worked.  

What's the difference between antiperspirants and deodorant?

Most people use the terms antiperspirant and deodorant interchangeably, the two are not the same. Antiperspirants work by preventing perspiration from occurring (with Aluminum). Deodorants allow perspiration, but block odor. Deodorants accomplish this by killing the bacteria that cause odor. From a purely natural standpoint, it makes more sense for us to use deodorants, as it is a more natural process.

Personally, I'm not looking to completely stop sweating.

Sweating is actually good for us. It's a natural function of the human body. It helps to regulate our body temperature and balance our salt levels.  Also, sweat doesn't actually have an odor. The foul smell that comes from sweating under your arms comes from bacteria on the skin's surface. 

The problem with antiperspirants is that they contain a host of chemical ingredients that some feel are potentially harmful to your health. To block the sweat under your arms, antiperspirants use aluminum compounds to clog the skin's pores. These compounds have been under fire in recent years as being tied to breast cancer and Alzheimer's disease. While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), says that there is no proven link to these diseases, many consumers still prefer to exercise caution in using these kinds of antiperspirants.

The bottom line is, each of us has to take the initiative and actively seek out the products that are healthier for us.  As for me, no Aluminum, thank you!

by Kelli Parisian March 10, 2020

DIY hand sanitizers don't work, germs, virus, flu, Coronavirus, colds

 

 

You can't turn on your TV or computer without reading something about the Coronavirus. We all want to do whatever we can to protect ourselves, don't we?

Many stores are sold out of hand sanitizers, leading to a glut of homemade hand sanitizer recipes/videos all over the internet.

I started to look at some of the DIY recipes circulating and quickly realized,

Peptides, EWG Verified Peptide Eye Gel, eye cream for crows feet, fine lines, smile lines, sensitive skinThe topic of peptides came up at a dinner party I had this weekend.  Hey, it happens when you have a skin care business :-)  My friend (and PPI customer), Audrey, brought up the topic of peptides. I laughed when she said, "I don't know what they are, but my sister said they are good, and I want them in my face products," exclaimed Audrey!

Well, your sister is right, Audrey, we should be using peptides daily.  Here's what they are and why we include them in our EWG Verified Peptide Eye Gel, and Bliss Face, Neck & Decollete Serum.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
