I'm new to natural body care products and have always just used the generic stuff. I switched from a standard deoderant to the Tom's brand that is aluminum free b/c I heard that aluminum into your armpit pores is related to breast cancer. Yucky. However, I still just use the cheap, big brand shower gel that smells like Pomegranate and Orange Burst or something. It's like $3 a bottle. Are there health risks to using that stuff on my skin? Please share specific info. THanks.

Can you give the name brand so we can look at the ingredients?

Check out the Skin Deep website.  They have ratings and information on a huge number of products.
