Regular commercial deodorants and antiperspirants contain harmful chemicals! Avoid these nasties with deodorant stones!
How does it work?
The stone targets the bacteria on the skin surface, which is what causes smells. Using the stone will not clog your pores or leave any residue or by-product. It will not stain clothing. The stone deodorises by acting on the bacteria. It is not an antiperspirant! Sweating is natural and important!
About Bamboo Straw Girl:
Bamboo Straw Girl is an earth-minded lifestyle brand focused on a conscious way of living. Starting with just bamboo straws in 2014, this social enterprise now offers a full line of hand-made zero waste products. For Mel, the "Bamboo Straw Girl", straws are a light-hearted way of starting serious conversations about eco habits and single-use plastics, of challenging people to realize that their little actions add up.
Bamboo Straw Girl works directly with independent South East Asian makers to create their nature-inspired products with a keen focus on waste-reduction. All products are low-impact, with little to no by-products or discarded materials in the production process.
Bamboo Straw Girl - Crystal Deodorant
The stones are made using natural mineral salts, and the main ingredient is potassium alum. Potassium alum it is not an antiperspirant and products containing it do not reduce sweat production.
It is not the same as Aluminium Chloride and Aluminium Chlorohydrate, which are commonly found in conventional antiperspirants and which people want to avoid!
Able to last 1 year, depending on usage.
Run a bit of the stone under a tap and rub onto any area where you want to prevent body odour - yes, it will work on armpits and feet!
