Why Crystal Deodorant “doesn’t work”

I’ve finally put together the following vlog that answers one of the questions/comments that I get regularly when I talk about my lifestyle of avoiding toxic chemicals in my beauty and body produccts.

1. What do you use for deodorant?

2. That crystal deodorant didn’t work for me/someone I know uses it and they stink

Short answer: I use a crystal deodorant (affiliate link) in combination with an all-natural solid deodorant from Nature’s Gate (affiliate link). The longer answer usually involves explaining why I avoid the chemicals in conventional commercially produced deodorants and antiperspirants, which I went into with more detail in my post about how I don’t wear antiperspirant. I’ve also provided more educational links farther down this post below the video. Personally, I am avoiding aluminum and phthalates.

As for the follow-up/second question – I have found that when I’ve recommended crystal deodorant to personal friends, they always tell me “it didn’t work”. Recently I started asking questions about how the deodorant was applied and found that it is most likely a problem of incorrect application. There’s really no way to describe this where you’re not going to get bored and stop reading, so I made you a video. You’re welcome

    Oh, that was good information, thank you! I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t know I should rub until it gets dry! Definitely trying your method out and reading Jennifer’s post. So, if it is a different aluminum, that makes me less worried.
