A simple and effective natural deodorant and aftershave. The alum stone is a mineral salt that works as a deodorant by fighting odor-causing bacteria, and when used as an aftershave, soothes nicks and cuts, and helps to prevent razor burn, razor irritation, and skin infections from shaving. It is natural, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and vegan.
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.
Alum stones are a deodorant, and not an antiperspirant. They prevent body odor from occurring. They do not stop the natural occurrence of perspiration, but they do regulate the flow, meaning you sweat less.
Use and care
Gently wet the surface and apply as you would deodorant.
The alum stone works best when your pores are open, such as after a shower, or warmed with a warm, wet cloth. It is a salt crystal that dissolves with moisture, so pat to dry and store somewhere dry and safe from falling.
It does not expire, nor is it temperature sensitive. With daily use, this stone should last about one year.
This stone weighs 5.3 oz.
Potassium Alum (Mineral Salts).
Does not contain Parabens or Aluminum Chloride/Chlorohydrate/Zirconium.
Made in France.
End of life
Use until completely gone.
I have been looking for a low-waste deodorant that works for a long time, and I have found it! Not only does this stone look nice sitting on my bathroom counter, but it also has kept me from getting smelly through some of my long days as a high school teacher with no air conditioning. I will say that it doesn’t prevent sweat, just smells, but it works nicely! Will be repurchasing if I ever run out!
