The beauty industry, especially the personal care industry has been taken over by misleading messages and false advertising. I was going through a medical article about harmful effects caused by deodorants, the information was alarming.
The main health hazards caused by deodorants are:
- Allergic reactions.
The main ingredient found in all deodorants is Aluminum, which is one of the main concerns. But it is not the only concern. Most conventional deodorants contain a slew of toxic chemicals, such as aluminum chloralhydrate, parabens, propylene glycol, triclosan, TEA, DEA, FD&C colors, and Talc, among others.
Luckily I’ve always stuck to my favorite non-chemical crystal deodorant stick, I’ve been using this for more 5 years now, first shown to me by a friend who was going on about the benefits of this deodorant, I knew I had to try.
Once I started using this I was glued, this is an entirely natural deodorant made from mineral salt, crystal deodorant can come in many forms, including a spray, stick, powder, and stone, though always starting with a singular mineral crystal. The mineral crystal of choice for crystal deodorant is potassium alum. Potassium alum is an antimicrobial mineral that is soluble in water.
The Crystal Story
While traveling in France in 1984, Jerry Rosenblatt, Founder, and CEO of Crystal was introduced to a manufactured product made of mineral salts, which purifies water. That same product, he later discovered, also worked as a natural yet powerful hypoallergenic deodorant!
Jerry began importing the deodorant mineral salt and assembled a small team of friends to shape, mold, smooth, and package each stone by hand. No two rocks were the same; each measuring anywhere between eight to ten inches in diameter and weighing between six to nine ounces. Jerry named the product Le Crystal Naturel.
