With the increase of toxic chemicals entering into our personal care products its not surprising why people adopt alternatives. Alum Stones are natural stones used as deodorants. They are safe both for the skin and environment. These non-toxic and hypoallergenic stones can be applied to anywhere on the body and are multi functional. Alum stones are free from chemicals, perfumes, preservatives, colors and alcohol. They are very effective and economical, since a piece can last up to several months ( even up to years).


Alum stone crystal deodorants are composed of potassium alum. The natural crystal, potassium alum is totally unprocessed and is free from synthetic ammonium (a by-product of the chemical and nylon industry), which other crystal deodorants overwhelmingly contain. These synthetic ingredients may contain chemical residues and cause allergic reactions that earth-grown alum stone is safe from. Although natural and synthetic alums look similar, there is however a way to tell them a part. Natural crystal breaks into irregular forms with irregular surfaces.

Alum stones feature physically large potassium alum molecules that are not absorbed in the skin or blood. Water has a molecular weight of 18, a potassium alum crystal molecule has a molecular weight of 474,38. A potassium alum crystal molecule in solution is hydrated 24 times and consequently has a molecular weight of 654.
