Alum Deodorants: Benefits and Usage

Alum deodorants, also known as mineral deodorants, have  gained popularity as a natural alternative to traditional antiperspirants and deodorants. Made from potassium alum, a naturally occurring mineral compound,  these deodorants are one of the best natural deodorants for sensitive skin and they offer a range of benefits for those looking to embrace a more natural and skin-friendly  approach to odor control. 

Benefits of Alum Deodorants: 

Natural Odor Control: Alum deodorants work by creating a thin layer of mineral salts on the skin's surface. This inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria, effectively neutralizing body odor without blocking sweat pores. Our Vetiver & Myrrh Balm Deodorant with alum and clay can be used by everyone above the age of 10 years and is suitable for people struggling with strong body odor or have sensitive armpits.

Gentle and Non-Irritating: Alum deodorants are free from harsh chemicals,  fragrances, and alcohol that can potentially irritate sensitive skin. This makes them  a suitable option for individuals with sensitive skin or those prone to allergies. 

Long-Lasting Protection: Alum deodorants provide long-lasting protection  against odor. Their effects can last throughout the day, even during physical  activities and high-stress situations. They are the best natural skin care products you can invest in.  

No Stains: Unlike some traditional deodorants, alum deodorants do not leave  white marks on clothing. The clear mineral layer is absorbed by the skin and does not transfer onto fabrics. 

Non-Clogging: Alum deodorants do not block sweat pores, allowing the body to  naturally regulate its temperature and release sweat. 

How to Use Alum Deodorants: 

Clean and Dry Skin: Apply alum deodorant to clean and dry underarms after  showering or cleansing the area. You can opt for a floral scent or a spicy-woody aroma like the one of our Cypress & Patchouli Balm Deodorant.


Gentle Application: Gently massage a pinch of the product over the skin's surface. It  might feel slightly moist, but this is normal and will dry quickly.

Let It Dry: Allow the deodorant to air dry before putting on clothing. This usually takes a few seconds. 

Reapply as Needed: Alum deodorants can provide odor protection for as long as 8 hours. However, if you engage in physical activity or experience excess  sweating, you might need to reapply. 

It's important to note that while alum deodorants are effective for odor control,  they do not prevent sweating like traditional antiperspirants. If you're transitioning  from antiperspirants to alum deodorants, there might be an adjustment period  during which your body gets accustomed to the natural sweat regulation process. 

Alum deodorants offer a simple and effective way to maintain freshness while  embracing a natural and skin-friendly approach. As with any skincare product, it's  recommended to perform a patch test on a small area of skin before full  application to ensure compatibility.
