What is Natural Deodorant?
Crystal Springs – Salt of the Earth Deodorant works by inhibiting the growth of the bacteria that causes odour, without blocking the skins pores – it offers 24 hour protection while being free from alcohol, aluminium chlorohydrate, paraben, fragrance, propellants, Mineral Oils and is not tested on animals.
Both the spray and the solid stick contain mineral salts which help stop the odour – without leaving white marks on your clothing.
Who are Crystal Springs?
Formed back in 1993 when the founder came across a natural deodorant at a trade fair; with his love for natural products mixed with dislike for traditional antiperspirants he saw the potential of the product – and the first original solid deodorant was brought out that same year – followed in 2005 by the travel and spray varieties, since the formation of the brand they have also brought out a detox range and joined up with a natural cosmetic brand. With a major re-branding happening in 2011.
They have never stopped working on their deodorants with latest additions including adding Honeysuckle Extract (a natural antibacterial) and Aloe Vera to their travel sprays.
Does it work?
I have hyperhidrosis so if I am testing a deodorant it's very well tested and I have to say I'm pretty impressed with this, I still have periods of sweating but then that's normal, this is after all no botox (and I haven't had a top up in way to long) but it did keep an odours at bay all day without reapplying which is really the worst part – I'm used to the sweating I just don't want to smell.
If it would work as well in the summer that's to be seen but I would definitely go out and buy this again, it's amazingly cost effective when you think a stick can if looked after last for months.
