Frequently Asked Questions
Apply CRYSTAL deodorants directly after bathing or showering. Doing so prevents the bacteria that causes odor from forming on the skin. The preventive barrier that our deodorant provides works at peak effectiveness when applied to clean skin.
Note: If you do not apply the stick or deodorant stone directly after bathing or showering, be sure to moisten the top of the rock or stick and apply generously to clean skin. CRYSTAL sprays and roll-ons do not need to be moistened, but work best when applied to clean skin.
CRYSTAL is not an antiperspirant. It is a deodorant whose natural mineral salts prevent odor.
Since CRYSTAL deodorants are made of mineral salts, they are safe to use just about anywhere on the body. In addition to using on underarms, many of our customers apply to their chests, feet and inner thighs. Be sure to avoid applying to open wounds. Should a rash appear, stop using immediately and contact your doctor.
A single Crystal Body Deodorant stick can last up to one year of daily use.
A single Crystal roll-on will typically last up to four months of daily use.
A single Crystal spray will typically last up to four months of daily use, comparable to other sprays on the market.
A single application of a CRYSTAL deodorant should prevent body odor for up to 24 hours.
No. Crystal deodorants are not antiperspirants. Antiperspirants typically contain aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium which plug the pores. Deodorants are generally considered cosmetic products because they simply control odor. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, are considered drugs because they affect the body’s physiology.
Yes. CRYSTAL deodorants are safe for people of all ages.
Yes, CRYSTAL deodorants are safe to use during pregnancy.
Just because ingredients sound alike, does not mean they function the same. Case in point: Hydrogen Peroxide and Hydrogen Dioxide (water).
There are two main differences between Ammonium Alum and Potassium Alum, and Aluminum Chloride/Chlorohydrate/Zirconium (the toxic aluminums). These latter toxic aluminum compounds react with the chemistry in the skin to form a gel which blocks your sweat ducts and glands and keeps you nice and dry. Instead of forming a pore-blocking gel, Ammonium Alum and Potassium Alum are large molecules of natural minerals that stay on the surface of the skin where it prevents body odor from occurring in the first place.
Yes! CRYSTAL containers labeled with the ECOPAK® symbol are both fully recyclable based on your city's recycling recommendations and disposable in biologically active landfills. Our bottles labeled with the ECOPAK® symbol combine recyclable plastic polymers with a special compound that dramatically speeds up the degradation process while reducing its carbon emissions by 5%. When disposed of in a typical landfill, the packaging will break down in a fraction of the time it takes for conventional plastic.
