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 for several 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.

Types

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.

Size

This stone weighs 5.3 oz.

Ingredients

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.

Packaging

None.

Origin

Made in France.

End of life

Use until it’s too small to hold. It can last about 5 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!
