How Does Crystal Body Deodorant Work?
Odor is caused by bacteria that form on the body. Natural mineral salts mined from the earth form a thin
barrier on the skin that provides an unfriendly environment for odor-causing bacteria. Crystal Body Deodorant
offers a healthy alternative to popular mainstream deodorants that are filled with unhealthy chemicals your body
doesn't need. In fact, their products are rated #1 by the Environmental Working Group for having the safest
ingredients (actually, Crystal deodorants have just one ingredient!) among other natural deodorants and ordinary

Understanding Mineral Salts
Mineral salts are present in the water we drink, in almost all the foods we eat, and in the air we
breathe. In its natural form, alum 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.
Deodorants made of alum based mineral salts feature physically large potassium or ammonium alum molecules which are
not absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream.
Alum should not be confused with the controversial and potentially harmful aluminums found in most commercial
deodorants and antiperspirants, like aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium. The foundation of Crystal
deodorants is natural mineral salt harvested directly from the earth called alum.
The Difference Between Deodorants and Antiperspirants
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 chemicals to inhibit the activity of sweat glands so less
moisture is produced. While deodorants are considered to be a cosmetic product because they only control odor,
antiperspirants are actually drugs because they affect the physiology of the body. In fact, The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) controls the active ingredients used in antiperspirants because of their drug classification.
Although the exact mechanism of this physiological interaction is not fully understood, the theory is that
antiperspirant salts form temporary plugs in some of the sweat gland openings inhibiting the secretion of
Antiperspirants have an aluminum-based compound as their main ingredient. These include Aluminum Chlorohydrate,
Aluminum Zirconium, Aluminum Chloride, Tricholorohydrex Glycine and Aluminum Hydroxybromide - each controversial
ingredients and, potentially, unhealthy.
Crystal deodorants - the all-natural deodorant alternative to chemically laden commercial deodorants, are
composed of mineral salts, which form a topical layer on the skin. While most deodorants mask odor with scents or
fragrances, Crystal deodorants actually prevent body odor from beginning by creating a thin barrier above the skin
so that bacteria cannot form. Available in both unscented and lightly scented versions, Crystal deodorants are
hypoallergenic, non-sticky, non-staining, dry instantly and leave no white residue. Furthermore, Crystal deodorants
contain no artificial coloring, chemicals, dyes or alcohol. They contain NO harmful aluminums, are not tested on
animals, and are safe for the environment!
Understanding the Difference Between Alum and Aluminum
Technically speaking, aluminum is a metal, whereas alum is a compound. While many aluminum molecules can
be absorbed into the skin, alum molecules are too large to be absorbed. Crystal deodorants are made of natural
mineral salts (alum).
Aluminum Chlorhydrate and Why You Should Care.
Aluminum chlorohydrate is a neurotoxin that alters the function of the blood-brain barrier. It is a
chemical used in most consumer deodorants and antiperspirants and may cause allergic reactions in some people.
Crystal deodorants do not use aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium, or any other harmful aluminum.
What to Know About 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-like 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
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. Crystal
deodorants contain no parabens.
Not All Unscented Deodorants are Natural
Many unscented deodorants on the market use parabens, aluminum chlorohydrate, and other chemicals which
are not considered natural ingredients.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I use Crystal deodorants for best results?
