CCOF-Certified Beach Organics’ Natural #Organic Deodorant , Behind-the-Scenes Pictures, and a $50.00 Certificate!
Prior to composing this review, I was under the distinct impression that I was doing the right thing by using a Crystal Stick deodorant to avoid Aluminum. I’ve been constantly on the lookout for deodorants that I could use for myself and introduce to my family. I’ve purchased a few “natural” deodorants, but would quickly realize, that they were not natural as advertised. Even more, these well-known products were not owned by small, socially responsible companies, but purchased by corporations who have a history of selling socially irresponsible products. It has been disappointing, to say the least.
“The aluminum in crystal deodorant stones is a different type of compound known as an alum, the most common form being potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate.Potassium Alum or Ammonium Alum are natural mineral salts made up of molecules that are too large to be absorbed by your skin. They form a protective layer on your skin that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. These deodorants are recommended by many cancer treatment centers.But while this may be a better alternative to most antiperspirants and deodorants on the market, it is not completely aluminum-free.”
