The Natural Deodorant Alternative to
Chemical–Laden Commercial Deodorants

The Difference Between Deodorants
and Antiperspirants

Crystal Body Deodorant gives bacteria the one-two punch

The most common products used to control body odor are deodorants and antiperspirants.

Deodorants work by masking, suppressing, or preventing body odor. Deodorants do not tend to reduce the amount of perspiration the body produces.

Antiperspirants, on the other hand, use a variety of chemicals that artificially clog pores.

Mainstream antiperspirants have as their main ingredient(s) Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Aluminum Zirconium, Aluminum Chloride, Tricholorohydrex Glycine, and Aluminum Hydroxybromide – all controversial ingredients shown to be potentially unhealthy for our bodies.

Natural Science: Understanding Salt Deodorants

Mineral salts are present in the water we drink, in almost all the foods we eat, and in the air we breathe. At the foundation of Crystal deodorant is the natural mineral salt called 'Alum'.

Aluminum is the third most abundant element in nature, after oxygen and silicon. It has been part of our environment since the beginning of time and is one of the basic building blocks of our universe.

Mineral salts (Alum) should not be confused with Aluminum Chlorohydrate or Aluminum Zirconium which plug the pores so as to stop perspiration.

Crystal deodorant is made with a natural mineral salt called Alum Crystal hypoallergenic deodorants are recommended by doctors

What You Should Know About Parabens

Crystal deodorants contain no parabens. Parabens are used as a preservative in many commercial deodorants and antiperspirants. In 2004, a small study found traces of parabens in some samples of breast cancer tumors. A possible concern is that in other studies, parabens have been found to have weak estrogen* properties.

Estrogen is a female hormone known to cause breast cells (normal and cancerous) to grow and divide. Some conditions that increase the body's exposure to estrogen (not having children, late menopause, obesity, etc.) have been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer.

So far, studies have not shown any direct link between parabens and breast cancer risk. What has been found is that there are many other compounds in the environment that also mimic naturally–produced estrogen. Get more info from the American Cancer Society.
