Aluminum Free Deodorant for Him & for Her


The routine is similar for many of us: Wake up, brush our teeth, take a shower, and then, we may reach for that stick of deodorant or antiperspirant. These products have a simple goal: prevent body odor. Antiperspirants are aluminum-laced products that natural deodorants aim to replace. Antiperspirants trap sweat inside your sweat glands before it’s released, so it never mixes with underarm bacteria to create body odor. Antiperspirants contain aluminum salts to prevent sweat from reaching the skin’s surface, while aluminum-free deodorants help fight odor without blocking pores. The major difference between deodorant without aluminum and deodorant with aluminum is that the former blocks odor whereas the latter blocks sweat. Sweat is our healthy way of cooling down the body, and sweat from our underarms is activated by the nervous system through the apocrine glands. These glands produce sweat high in protein, which attracts odor-causing bacteria.

Breast Cancer and Aluminum-based Deodorants

Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women in the western world. In 90% of breast cancers, environmental factors are among the causes. The frequency with which the tumor occurs in the outer upper part of the breast has risen with above-average rates in recent decades. Aluminum salts as ingredients in deodorants and antiperspirants are being absorbed by the body to a greater extent than hitherto assumed. Their toxicity for healthy and diseased breast tissue cells includes various well-documented path mechanisms. The study by Jennrich and Schulte-Uebbing (2016), showed that Aluminum in deodorants triggers breast cancer.  Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant stick’s formulation maximizes the deodorant properties of Aloe Vera without containing the antiperspirant aluminum salts contained in many other deodorants (Leigh, 2006).

Beyond aluminum, there are other chemicals in deodorant to be wary of: propylene glycol, triclosan, phytalates, parabens, fragrances, aluminum chlorohydrate, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, and Talc. Propylene glycol studies have shown damage to the central nervous system, liver, and heart. There is also concern that regular exposure to triclosan could cause resistant strains of bacteria to form, and in more than one animal study impacted thyroid function (O’Connor & Spunt, 2010).

The phthalates and parabens in anti-perspirants are also endocrine disruptors in that they may interfere with hormone receptors and increase the likelihood of cell mutation. Endocrine disruptors mimic or partly mimic naturally occurring hormones in the body, potentially producing overstimulation. They can bind to a receptor within a cell and block the endogenous hormone (the real, naturally occurring hormone) from binding, and in turn the body misses the signal and doesn’t respond as it would otherwise. Endocrine disruptors can also: increase, decrease, transform, or imitate the production of certain hormones. They compete with certain nutrients and interfere with hormone signaling by telling cells to die prematurely, binding to essential hormones, or accumulating in organs that produce hormones (Meal, 2017).

Aloe Vera-Based Deodorant

Aloe Vera has been used for medicinal purposes in several cultures. Alexander the Great, persuaded by his mentor Aristotle, captured the island of Socotra (they
believed that Aloe Vera was restricted to the Island) and instructed some of his soldiers to preserve and cultivate the aloes.  Christopher Columbus used Aloe Vera leaves to treat soldiers’ wounds, and Egyptian queens Nefertiti, and Cleopatra used it as part of their regular beauty regimes (Demissew, 2005).

Forever Living ensures that its Aloe Vera plants grow in the best climate conditions. Harvesting is done entirely by hand to ensure that the aloe vera is not degraded and that the plant is fully mature. Then the aloe vera leaves are sent directly to the factories near the fields. The proximity of the plants is very important so that the aloe vera does not have time to oxidize before the stabilization. Then the aloe vera leaves are carefully washed and rinsed to prepare them to extract the precious gel that is the basis of all Forever products. Then the gel is separated from the bark and rinsed again to remove the sap that is not edible. The pulp is then ready to be cold stabilized by a unique patented process. Numerous laboratory tests guarantee the exceptional quality that allows the brand to be labeled by the IASC.

There’s nothing worse than applying deodorant directly after shaving and feeling irritation! Forever Living’s Deodorant Stick is made with Stabilized Aloe Vera Gel, which is safe even for Sensitive Skin! It can be used directly after underarm shaving and waxing without stinging!


This gentle formula with stabilized Aloe Vera gel contains no harsh or harmful anti-perspirant aluminum salts that are found in so many other deodorants on the market. The convenient stick form allows you to apply Aloe Ever-Shield just where it is needed. The special formulation glides on smoothly and does not stain clothes, even after prolonged use.

Heart Health with Forever Living Products


Happy Heart Month! February is American Heart Month, a time when all people can focus on their cardiovascular health (Hung, 2021). When we take care of our heart as part of self-care, we set an example for those around us to do the same.

Now, let’s talk about Heart Health and how Forever Living supplements can help prevent heart disease and keep your health healthy!

Omega-3 and Omega-6 Balance

There is an important balance that most people do not fully understand when it comes to Omegas. Historically, nutritionally balanced diets contained a healthy ratio of Omegas as 1:1 up to 1:4 DHA:EPA (Emmanuel, 2016).

Unfortunately, many diets include unhealthy levels of Omega-6  which are traditionally derived from fried foods, vegetable oils, fake butter products, grain-fed animal fat, and other modern convenience and processed foods. In addition, many diets are low in fish and Omega-3 consumption, which creates an unhealthy ratio of Omega-6:Omega-3 as high as 30:1!

Omega-3 is naturally found throughout the body and is most abundant in the brain, eyes, and heart. Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA ensures that the cells in the brain, retina, heart, and other parts of the nervous system develop and function properly through all stages of life. Additionally, DHA intake has been associated with a decreased risk of mental decline associated with aging (McManus et al., 2011).

The key to getting back to a healthy ratio of DHA:EPA is increasing Omega-3 consumption and reducing Omega-6 intake. Forever Arctic Sea provides this extra amount of Omega-3 and DHA per dose.


Forever Arctic Sea

Forever Arctic Sea is a unique blend, exclusive from Forever Living, that provides the extra DHA we need per day, to create a balance between DHA and EPA, i.e. nutritionally balanced diet, for optimal health and wellness.

  • Custom Omega-3 ratio to mimic a diet rich in seafood.
  • All-natural citrus flavor for a pleasant aroma and minimal fishy flavor.
  • Ocean friendly and responsibly sourced.
  • Pure source of EPA and DHA.

Forever Arctic Sea contains a proprietary blend of:

  • DHA-rich calamari oil,
  • ultra-pure Omega-3 fish oil and
  • high oleic olive oil.
Other Ingredients
  • Citric acid
  • Maltodextrin
  • The natural mixed berry flavor
  • Silicon dioxide
  • Xylitol
  • D-ribose
  • Sucralose
  • Monopotassium phosphate

Forever CardioHealth with CoQ10 Health Benefit

Special formula designed to mix with Forever Aloe Vera Gel™ to provide important nutritional supports for cardiovascular health.

Forever CardioHealth® supports healthy homocysteine levels, supplies co-enzyme Q10 to promote efficient metabolism, and provides heart-healthy antioxidants (Emmanuel, 2016).

Wait! What is CoQ10?!

CoQ10 is an enzyme that is produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells, including those of the heart and blood vessels. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age, which is just when we need them most (Hidaka et al., 2008). Forever CardioHealth® with CoQ10 provides the extra supply of CoQ10 your body needs.


Another way Forever CardioHealth® supports good cardiovascular function is by helping to maintain healthy homocysteine levels in the blood. The B vitamins in Forever CardioHealth® (Vitamin B6, B12, and Folic Acid) have been shown to help keep homocysteine levels in the healthy lower range. This in turn helps support healthy heart and blood vessel function. Forever CardioHealth® also contains a selection of herbal extracts (Grape Seed, Turmeric, Boswellia, and Olive Leaf) found in studies to be beneficial for cardiovascular support. To all of the above, we have added the heart-healthy minerals magnesium and chromium plus lecithin, known for its blood vessel lubricating and fat-mobilizing properties, and the powerful antioxidant vitamins C and E.

The following YouTube video explains more about the health benefits of Forever CardioHealth®:

Now take all this greatness and mix it into your next glass of Forever Aloe Vera Gel™ for the added benefits found in the miraculous aloe leaf. Just pour, stir, and drink – your heart will thank you!

Forever Bright Toothgel

Forever Bright® Toothgel | Forever bright toothgel, Forever living products, Forever products

A few months ago I came across a great article about the impact of Forever Living’s Aloe Vera-based tooth gel on It was great timing as I was also using this product and have been noticing the difference between Forever Bright Tooth gel and the typical kinds of toothpaste.  According to (Wymann, 2021), Forever Bright is the only toothpaste that combines stabilized Aloe Vera and bee propolis. Now, let’s take a look at the great benefits of each of these items:

What is Bee Propolis?

Propolis is a multifunctional material used by bees in the construction and maintenance of their hives. The use of propolis by humans has a long history, predated only by the discovery of honey. This medicinal ingredient has been used by people for thousands of years to protect beehives against intruders in nature. The use of products containing propolis have resulted in extensive dermal contact and it is now increasingly being used a dietary supplement (Burdock, 1998). Propolis is a resin-like material made by bees from the buds of poplar and cone-bearing trees.

Processing Propolis: Part 1 | Bee Culture

How Bee Propolis Improves Oral Health

Propolis seems to help fight against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It might also have anti-inflammatory effects and help skin heal. A study by Abbasi et al. ( 2018) on applications of propolis in dentistry showed the efficacy of propolis for surgical wound healing.

Aloe Vera in Dentistry

Aloe barbadensis is a spiky succulent plant that is abundant in nature and has been used for medicinal purposes in several cultures over thousands of years, often for treating wounds, burns, and other skin ailments. It’s a native plant in the driest regions of Asia, Europe, the Americas, and Africa (Boudreau et al., 2006). It contains various minerals and vitamins. It has got various properties such as immunomodulatory, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory in nature. Aloe Vera can play a significant role in dentistry in the treatment of lichen planus, oral submucous fibrosis, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, alveolar osteitis, periodontitis, etc (Mangaiyarkarasi et al., 2015).

Competitive Advantages

The author of article then reviews the key advantages of Forever Bright Tooth gel compared to the other competitors in the market:

  1. Fluoride-free formula
  2. Formulated with 100% Stabilized Aloe Vera and Bee Propolis
  3. Gluten-free & Vegetarian Friendly

This gentle, non-fluoride formula combines Aloe Vera, bee propolis, peppermint, and spearmint for a natural tasting, teeth brightening formula. Great for children, vegetarians, and well… everyone!

About the Company

Forever Living Products is a multi-billion dollar company founded by Rex Maughan in 1978, that manufactures and sells hundreds of wellness and beauty products around the world.

Aloe Vera Based Products

The Aloe vera plant has been known and used for centuries for its health, beauty, medicinal, and skincare properties (Manvitha and Bidya, 2014). Many people use aloe to soothe minor burns or comfort and moisturize stressed skin, but aloe also has amazing benefits to support your health from the inside out! Forever Living’s aloe vera is hand-harvested and hand filleted to delicately extract the potent inner leaf gel and provide you with the purest, freshest aloe vera gel. This inner leaf gel is then aseptically processed within hours of harvest right at the farms to seal in the freshness.

Robson et al. (1982) explain the top four benefits of this magical plant:

  1. Supports healthy digestion – Aloe Vera has natural cleansing abilities that help the digestive tract absorb nutrients from the foods we eat into the bloodstream, while at the same time promoting friendly bacteria growth.
  2. Promotes a healthy immune system – Aloe vera contains unique polysaccharides and other nutrients that help to modulate and support the immune system.
  3. Helps maintain natural energy levels – Aloe vera is rich in vitamin C and is known to help maintain natural energy levels.
  4. Dental health and hygiene – Aloe vera is extremely beneficial for the mouth and gums. A daily serving or two of Forever’s aloe vera drinks may support healthy oral hygiene.
