Crystal Deodorant is the Pits

Happy Monday, Toxic Beauty fans!

I was doing some research recently and read about how even mineral salt or crystal deodorant is not good for you! Apparently the type of alum in the deodorant is the same type found in commercial, toxic antiperspirants and deodorants. This aluminum is the same aluminum that has been linked to cancer and Alzhemier’s Disease.

Now you might be saying, GEEZ, what can I use then!?

I have a solution for you. I have been using Real Purity deodorant for some time now (over 2 years) and I am so satisfied with it’s performance and protection. It keeps me dry and fresh throughout the day with all natural ingredients. It is the one product I would take with me on a desert island. Yes, I am serious!

Visit Real Purity to read the ingredients and many customer reviews raving about this wonder product and to get your own. I am an affiliate so if you purchase, I will make a commission….but know that I would never promote a product I don’t believe in…and I truly believe in Real Purity. :-)

    Hi Robin,
    Thanks for posting the information on the crystal. Dr Mercola newsletter February 16, 2010 made it known the alum in crystal Deodorants are in the aluminum family. Dr. Mercola information comes from Dr. Dabre and DR Exley two European pioneeers in the field connecting aluminum toxicity and breast cancer.

    On another note, Herbalix Restoratives makes safe deodorants including the world’s first nighttime Deodorant for cleansing the aluminum salts and other metals from the underarm. Contains the combination of botanical sea and land herbs, kelp, olive leaf, coriander seed, and Herbalix. Most of us are challenged with deodorants not working. One needs to rid the body of cellular trash first for a natural deodorant to work.
    Herbalix’s daytime deodorant use organic powders to “wick” the sweat. Once the fluids are allowed to flow the odors and sweat levels greatly diminish.

    I’ve been using Real Purity deodorant for years, and it’s the only deodorant that hasn’t made me itch under my arms, but actually works! And I live in Alabama where the summers are HOT!

    Hi Audrey,

    Woo hoo! Another Real Purity deo fan! When a deodorant can stand up to the hot climate of the southern US, you know you have a winner!

    Hi Robin,
    I had been using Crystal Essence and it was great, then I read about this as well. Probably at the same time you did. So I went back to Purple Prairies and then remembered why I stopped using it – huge rash! I’m going to be trying a couple of the Bubble and Bee creams and I got a spray for my husband. Neither of us were a fan of the stick pit putty so I’m hoping that these work!

    Hi Pam,

    As mush as I love Bubble and Bee, none of the Pit Puttys have ever really been effective for me on a long term basis. The ONLY deodorant that consistently works on me in in this sometimes over 100 degree heat is Real Purity. If you decide to give it a try, click on the link and enter “Robin” to save 10% on your order. I’m sure it will work for you as well as it has worked for me. My boyfriend uses it also!

    I highly recommend getting all the gunk out of your body by way of Herbalix totally pure and organic Night time Detox Deodorants, for 30 days, then go on a maintenance program. It gets rid of aluminum from regular antiperspirants, which is really bad for you. You won’t smell any more. And if you want you can also try their organic daytime deodorants.

    Robin, just one other thing I forgot to mention in my earlier comment. A lot of people are afraid of Aluminum Chloride antiperspirants because of a link that was found between Alzheimers and aluminum in the bloodstream.

    However, this is just a misinformed rumor. You would really need exorbitant amounts of aluminum chloride in the blood stream directly to cause this kind of condition. – Just wanted to chime in with that to take the fear out of anyone who was concerned and is avoiding common antiperspirants for that reason specifically.
