The History of Mineral Salts and Alum
Alum is a completely natural mineral salt derived from the earth. It is a naturally occurring compound and one of the most abundant substances on earth, just behind oxygen and silicon. Alum literally is present all around us… It’s in the air we breathe, the water we drink, foods we eat and is one of the basic building blocks of our environment. This form of natural deodorant has been used in the health and nutrition industry for over 20 years and similar natural commodities have been used in Europe and Asia for centuries. Make no mistake; Alum is a natural compound compared to most conventional deodorants/antiperspirants which contain potentially harmful processed aluminums (aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium).
Understanding Deodorants and Antiperspirants
Most people think antiperspirants and deodorants are the same thing, but they are not. Deodorants are considered a cosmetic product while antiperspirants are regulated by the FDA because they are classified as a drug due to the effect they have on the body. Antiperspirants work by clogging, closing, or blocking the pores with powerful aluminum chemicals so that they can not release sweat. Deodorants work by neutralizing the smell of the sweat and by antiseptic action against bacteria. Deodorants are preferable because they don’t interfere with sweating, a natural cooling process.
Consumer advocacy groups continue to voice concerns over questions regarding common health and beauty products, including deodorant and antiperspirant. Certain studies indicate potential health risks associated with aluminum compounds found in many antiperspirants. Similar studies find like-risks with parabens found in some deodorants. Both have been somewhat linked to serious illnesses, including breast cancer.
Crystal Deodorants and How They Work
The Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals are made of mineral salts which are pure and natural, fragrance free, non-staining and provide up to 24-hour, hypoallergenic protection against body and foot odor. Being in salt, and not in metal form, the crystal deodorant contains no harmful aluminums that can clog pores. Unlike antiperspirants, mineral salts allow the natural process of perspiration, rather than trying to mask your bodily smells.
You may ask yourself, if mineral salts do not cover up odor, then how are they effective? Well regarding the solid stones, to apply, wet the crystal and rub it on areas you wish to deodorize. The salt molecules provide a barrier of protection against odor causing bacteria from forming. The salt deposits stay on your skin, raising the PH level and stop bacteria in its tracks. The salt on your skin reduces the moisture on the areas where it has been applied which leaves you with a non-sticky, fresh and clean feeling throughout the day. Naturally Fresh Deodorant solid crystal products are guaranteed to be free of synthetic oils, alcohol, emulsifiers, solvents and other chemical additives based on natural deodorants.
The Aluminum Issue
Aluminum compounds are abundant in our environment. They are found in most foods and drinking water. Many people and doctors have concerns with respect to the processed aluminum found in conventional deodorants. Technically speaking, aluminum is a metal while Alum is a compound. Aluminum Chlorohydrate is a chemical neurotoxin used in most consumer deodorants and antiperspirants that can cause allergic reactions. These harmful processed aluminums have very small molecules which can clog pours and penetrate the skin and end up in the bloodstream. Alum, on the other hand, is naturally occurring and not processed. The benefit of using alum is that it contains large molecules which do not penetrate the body or bloodstream.
Do Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals contain aluminum?
No, Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystals contain the naturally occurring compound Alum (Potassium or Ammonium), not to be confused with harmful processed aluminum (Aluminum Zirconium or Aluminum Chlorohydrate). Technically speaking, aluminum is a metal while Alum is a compound. Many of these processed aluminum molecules can be absorbed into the skin and bloodstream. Alum molecules create a barrier against odor causing bacteria and contain a large molecule which does not penetrate the surface of the skin.

About Naturally Fresh
Here at TCCD International they have been manufacturing and distributing their natural deodorant product line, Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal, since 1991. Their vision was to offer a healthy, natural alternative to conventional deodorants. Something formulated without harmful chemicals, gentle yet effective, and one that medical doctors and health practitioners would be comfortable recommending.
With this vision in mind, Ted and Cathy Alflen founded TCCD International in March 1991. It began when they came across a raw crystal/stone from Thailand in 1990, which a close friend had suggested they try. Finding the application of wetting the stone with water and rubbing it on your skin seemed quite unusual, but try it they did. Much to their surprise the results far exceeded their expectations. They then started importing raw stones from Thailand and began producing their very first product, The Crystal In a Dish.
Since that time they have expanded their products through innovations within the Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal brand to include the spray mist, roll-on, body deodorant, crystal deodorant stone, crystal deodorant, foot spray, trial travel sizes, crystal rock deodorant, their patented aloe vera crystal wide stick, and recent fragranced line of roll-on’s and spray mist’s with scents derived from essential oils. The liquid crystal spray mist is the #1 doctor recommended deodorant by oncologists, allergists & dermatologists. The roll-on (all natural blend of exquisite ingredients), is their best seller.
Although they were not the first crystal deodorant company, they are the real innovators and the finest manufacturer in this industry. Other companies have tried to duplicate their products and concepts but they cannot produce the same quality. They are simply the best and getting better all of the time. Please check out all the other superb products they supply such as the crystal deodorant stone and all natural deodorants for both men and women. Thank you for your support. They welcome your input, comments and questions.
