Crystal Deodorant Rock, Unscented
Crystal Deodorant Products
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.

How Crystal Body Deodorant Works
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, our 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 mainstream deodorants.
Crystal Rock and sticks are produced in Thailand (the Le Crystal Naturel "Big Rock" is crafted in France). Crystal roll-ons and sprays are produced in the United States.
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 moisture.
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.
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 cancer.
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.
How should I use Crystal deodorants for best results?
For best results, apply Crystal deodorants directly after bathing or showering. Doing so prevents the bacteria that cause odor from forming on the skin. The preventive barrier that our deodorant provides works at peak effectiveness when applied to recently washed skin. Note: If you do not apply the stick or rock directly after bathing or showering, be sure to moisten the top of the rock or stick and apply generously to clean skin. Crystal sprays and roll-ons do not need to be moistened, but work best when applied to clean skin.

Product Information / Ingredients
Do Crystal deodorants contain aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium?
No. Crystal deodorants do not contain aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium.
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 is cellulose and why do we use cellulose in our roll-ons?
Cellulose is a natural ingredient that acts as a thickener to help prevent the deodorant from leaking out of the bottle.
Do Crystal products have alcohol?
No. Crystal deodorants do not contain alcohol.
How does Crystal turn alum “rock” into a liquid for your roll-ons and sprays?
We pulverize the alum “Rock” and then mix it with purified water.
Why do we refer to a “Rock” when discussing Crystal products?
Crystal created what is now called the “Rock” (also “stone”) category. It refers to the alum, or mineral salts that are harvested, shaped and molded into a rock-like material.
Are Crystal products tested on animals?
No. Crystal Body Deodorant and Crystal essence products have never been and never will be tested on animals. We are proud members of both Leaping Bunny and PETA.
