For a while now, I’ve been on the hunt to find an alternative to my anti-perspirant. I’ve always been let down with the products I’ve tried. That is, until CRYSTAL entered my life.
The idea of rubbing a wet stone on my armpits initially seemed wacky. I gave it a shot and was very pleasantly surprised with how effective it was. I’m now addicted and keep this product in my tub.
After I shower, I wet the stone, apply it generously to each armpit and voilà, I’m odor-free for at least 24 hours. As an added bonus, it doesn’t leave any white marks on my clothes. I consider that a major win!
But what about the potassium alum ingredient in the formula? It has a scary, chemical-sounding name but according to CRYSTAL, it is actually a naturally occurring mineral salt that creates a protective barrier against odor causing bacteria. It does not inhibit sweat gland function in any way.
There is plenty of contradictory advice online about the safety and effectiveness of mineral deodorants. I encourage you to do thorough research to decide if this is a product you’ll want to incorporate into your routine.
