mrsm14 Posted January 21, 2013 Share Posted January 21, 2013 I know the natural deodorant thread already exists, but I feel this is a really important issue that is coming out of that thread that might need to be addressed separately (not a Whole30 question, but smelly pits are an important issue for us all!) Based on the natural deodorant thread, I bought a crystal deodorant, (which works great) only to find out that the main ingredient is 'potassium alum', which is a NATURAL FORM OF ALUMINUM. I think that everyone should do their own research on this issue (googling "Crystal Deodorant Aluminum" will give you a head start), but I'm feeling based on the info out there that this natural form of aluminum should in theory be just as bad as a more 'manufactured' aluminum in antiperspirants and not be used by members of this forum trying to do the right thing by using a natural deodorant. Right after discontinuing the crystal, I started using extra virgin coconut oil, which has been amazing! It's going well and lasting at least 12 hours, which is all I need to get through work. Anyone have thoughts or their own research on this topic? I feel very duped by the advertising for this crystal deodorant. Thanks ladies! Link to comment
