The deodorant crystal our customers are raving about!
The alum stone is a simple and effective natural deodorant that can also be used as an aftershave. It's a mineral salt, so it stops odor producing bacteria from forming, making it a safe and effective natural deodorant. We also can't believe how long it lasts - it can last about 2 years!
Each alum stone is a unique mineral crystal with slight variations in shape and appearance. They are natural, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and vegan.
When used as an aftershave, it soothes nicks and cuts, and helps to prevent razor burn or skin irritation from shaving.
Alum stones will help you sweat less, but they aren't an antiperspirant meaning they don't block your body from releasing toxins or cooling down. They are a nontoxic, beautiful and package free alternative to deodorant.
Use and care
Gently wet the surface and apply as you would deodorant.
The alum stone works best when your pores are clean and open, such as after a shower. You can also use a warm or soapy washcloth to cleanse your underarm, and then apply the stone. Either works just fine! Cleansing your underarm first is the trick to what makes this so effective.
It can have a bit of an adjustment period like any natural deodorant. We suggest giving the detox phase a few weeks for it to work its best.
Please note: It is a salt crystal that dissolves with moisture, so pat to dry if needed and store somewhere dry.
It does not expire, nor is it temperature sensitive. With daily use, this stone should last over a year.
Classic - Each alum stone is a unique mineral crystal with slight variations in shape and appearance.
Imperfect - We inspect each stone from our manufacturer and have discounted some due to more noticeable imperfections. "Imperfect" alum stones are not broken, they are typically just slightly chipped around the edges, but work just as well!
Travel/sample size - This is a perfect way to sample an alum stone if you're unsure, or just want a smaller piece for travel. These are pieces of stones that were broken during shipment, so putting these to use is truly zero waste! Each has a smooth outer side that can glide against your skin.
This stone weighs 5.3 oz.
Potassium Alum (Mineral Salts).
Alum stones contain a naturally occurring form of aluminum (Potassium Alum) that does not possess the same health risks as the aluminums in many antiperspirant deodorants (Aluminum Chloride/Chlorohydrate/Zirconium), which block sweat ducts and glands. Potassium Alum is a different chemical compound and stays on the surface of your skin, making alum stones safe to use.
Does not contain Parabens.
Made in France.
End of life
Use until it’s too small to hold. It can last about 2 years, depending on how often you use it. You’ll end up with a small piece that's basically a rock, so you won’t want to put it in a compost bin but what you can do is sand it into a powder (it’s a very soft crystal), add water and put it in a spray bottle to keep using as deodorant! Zero waste!
I do not know how it is possible but this deodorant really works. I had been using a baking soda and aluminum free "eco friendly" deodorant for about two years before switching to this two weeks ago. There is legitimately no smell at all from me, at all. I am amazed. My partner uses it too and although at the end of the day he can get slightly funky, it's noticeably less. I don't know how, but yes, it works.
I was very skeptical about this crystal but I decided to purchase. My convincing factor was it last two years. I’ve paid so much for clinical strength deodorants that are full of chemicals and natural deodorants( that both did not work btw), why not give this a try. This thin works! & it lasts all day! My husband was talking all this crap about it now he’s asking for one too lol. I told all of my family and friends about it. If you’re second guessing it .... just give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
It's no joke. This really works. By boyfriend's eyes did a full 360 when I bought this. 4 days later, he's using it. I have some seriously stinky pits and this thing is a game changer. Bonus, makes my armpits super soft after shaving.
I have been going sans deodorant for many years to avoid dealing with aluminum antiperspirant, white stains, random fragrance, etc. I don't sweat much or produce noticeable odor, so I think/hope I got away with it. When I saw this stone, I was so excited to try it, as I don't mind sweating and just want to eliminate any chance of offensive odor. This product works perfectly for that so far, and I'm looking forward to continuing to use it as we inch toward spring and summer. I love that there's absolutely no packaging, and it looks beautiful on the bathroom counter! I never expected to find such a perfect product.
I'm always looking for way to "green up" my body care products. I was a bit skeptical and thought that a alum stone was too good to be true. I finally gave in after hearing reviews from friends, and I'VE BEEN PROVED WRONG! I have been using this a week and loving it everyday. SO easy to use, no breakouts or changes in my underarm skin, and best of all - the smells are gone. Have been using it in the morning before work where I often sweat a bit, and while I do still sweat of course, it does not smell. Would recommend anyone to try this if they are on the fence.
