Are the aluminium salts in antiperspirant deodorants safe?

Yes, they are safe. In recent years, a number of studies, later backed by the media, have cast doubt over the safety of aluminium salts in antiperspirant deodorants. These salts are subject to numerous tests, performed both by antiperspirant manufacturers and health authorities. Following these tests, aluminium salts have proven to be the safest and most effective compounds to control sweating. The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has recently reiterated its favorable stance on their use in the current conditions: in fact, legislation in force establishes that antiperspirant substances are only permitted in cosmetic formulas in determined concentrations. Deodorants with medium-high concentrations of antiperspirants display a warning informing the consumer that they should not be applied to broken or irritated skin. The American FDA has also confirmed the safety of aluminium chloride complexes and has approved their use in antiperspirant deodorants. To date, there is no reliable scientific evidence that can call into question the safety of antiperspirant deodorants containing aluminium salts. Subsequently, aluminium salts can be used safely, with the antiperspirant deodorants that contain them being in full-compliance with the stringent requisites of European legislation on cosmetic products.

KIKO MILANO strictly complies with the requisites of said European legislation. Consequently, KIKO MILANO antiperspirant deodorants, like all our cosmetic products, are tested and safe.
