An Axe to Grind – Earth to Body

An Axe to Grind

He said:

“You think it’s my spray making me sick? Seriously? It feels so good.  We both love the scent. Do you really think that my asthma is aggravated by my Axe Phoenix Body Spray?  Or my depression? My rash?  Who would market a deodorant that makes me sick?”

She said:

Maybe Axe and the enticing sexy ads. With lures like RISE UP LIKE A PHOENIX, how can you not buy in? But the ingredient labels read like a chemistry test I would fail.  I understand butane and propane though. You’re a walking fire bomb!  You spray it everywhere on your body. We both breathe it in. Plus, you never feel well. Admit it.”

A follow up on what She Said

The ingredients in the Axe Phoenix Body Spray are dangerous to one’s health. She was right to be concerned.

If put simply, they include ALCOHOL DENAT., HYDROFLUOROCARBON 152A, BUTANE, ISOBUTANE, FRAGRANCE, PROPANE For entire listing see below *

Remembering what He Said:

He suffers with asthma. He feels depressed.  He has skin rashes. He loves his Axe

So, what’s up?

The Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP)’s study* on skin care products discovered an average of 146 chemicals that companies can choose to incorporate.  These hazardous chemicals can trigger hormone disruption, asthma, developmental toxins and cancer.  Axe Phoenix Body Spray ranked 5th in the top 10 products listed as most dangerous.

Fragrance alone is toxic. And who would intentionally choose to spritz with butane and propane? They are used as propellants for the aerosol, otherwards, they make it work.  Propane can be irritating on the skin, (making it feel a little numb, or prickly or itchy).

And if you still choose to indulge, at least avoid spraying in a closed area, such as in a steamy bathroom with the door closed.  Head outside instead. 

Or better still, avoid skin care products that contain toxic ingredients. There are other ways to freshen and deodorize.  And if you have an ax to grind, speak out.
