Frequently Asked Questions

Product Performance

How should I use Crystal deodorants for best results?

Apply Crystal deodorants directly after bathing or showering. Doing so prevents the bacteria that cause odor from forming on the skin. The preventive barrier that our deodorant provides works at peak effectiveness when applied to clean skin.
Note: If you do not apply the stick or deodorant stone directly after bathing or showering, be sure to moisten the top of the rock or stick and apply generously to clean skin. Crystal sprays and roll-ons do not need to be moistened, but work best when applied to clean skin.

Will Crystal mineral salt deodorant reduce my sweat?

Crystal is not an antiperspirant. It is a deodorant whose natural mineral salts prevent odor.

Can I use Crystal on other parts of my body?

Since Crystal hypoallergenic deodorants are made of mineral salts, they are safe to use just about anywhere on the body. In addition to using underarm, many of our customers apply to their chests, feet and inner thighs. Be sure to avoid applying to open wounds. Should a rash appear, stop using immediately and contact your doctor.

Is Crystal an antiperspirant?

No. Crystal deodorants are not antiperspirants. Antiperspirants typically contain aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium which plug the pores. Deodorants are generally considered cosmetic products because they simply control odor. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, are considered drugs because they affect the body’s physiology.

Why did we decide to launch a scented deodorant?

We launched the scented Crystal essence line because our customers told us they would actually like the choice of a scented deodorant in addition to the unscented Crystal Body Deodorant they currently use. Feedback was clear, however, that the scented product not be “overpowering,” which is why our Crystal essence is lightly scented.
