How Does Mineral Salts Deodorant Work?
Your perspiration, when it first leaves your body is sterile and odorless. When it comes in contact with the bacteria that lives on your skin, the bacteria multiplies, and it's the multiplying bacteria that causes the odor. The mineral salts deodorant stone leaves a thin film of the salts on your skin and the bacteria can not thrive in the mineral salts environment. Therefore, no odors. You will not smell at all. It works better than the toxic cover up deodorants. It's also a natural astringent that can be used like a styptic pencil to stop small bleeding from shaving etc.
Since only a very thin film of mineral salts is used each time you put it on, a stick of our 4.25 ounce Mineral Salts will last well over 2 years in normal use. I have been using the same one for over 3.5 years. It's a huge money saver.
What about the stains on the arm pits of my clothes?
Those days are gone. Our Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone will not stain your clothes at all.
Some people had reported that if they were using an antiperspirant they had a slight odor for a few days when they first began using the mineral salts deodorant stone. But then the odor went away and now they have no odor. We think this is because antiperspirants actually clog the pores in your underarms. Toxins build up in your body, and when you use a product that does not clog your pores the toxins come pouring out and you get an odor. If you are one of the few people that this happens to just wear some cologne or perfume for a few days and then you will be healthier and odor free. If you feel it stops working after a while it is possible though rare that a crust can form on the surface of the mineral salt stone preventing the salts from dissolving onto your skin. If this happens just rough up the stone with some sand paper or a nail file and it will work like new again.
It feels clean and fresh. It feels like you have nothing on. No white residue. No sticky feel. No perfume smell. No waiting for it to dry. Just clean, fresh and healthy.
100% potassium alum mineral salts
Green Virgin Products 100% pure Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone, sometimes also called crystal deodorant, contains no harmful carcinogens or toxic chemicals which are typically found in national brands. There is a growing controversy over whether aluminum compounds cause breast cancer and Alzheimer's. Aluminum is the 3rd most abundant element on the planet Earth. It is in the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. It is in dirt and dust, it is everywhere. For that reason plants and animals on Earth have adapted to be able to deal with aluminum. Healthy individuals will only absorb minimal amounts of aluminum. Then almost all of the amount absorbed will be eliminated in our urine and feces. Since this product is a natural stone from the earth it does contain small amounts of aluminum just like your food, water and the air we breath. New research is pointing out that certain diseases might cause the body to store aluminum instead of the aluminum causing the disease. However, it is documented that the known carcinogens and toxic chemicals in national brands of deodorants can cause cancer and many other debilitating diseases. Deodorant is particularly dangerous due to the fact that it's worn constantly. These highly toxic chemicals are absorbed through our skin.
It is important to know that the cosmetics industry which sells toxic deodorants to the tune of billions of dollars a year will do just about anything to protect their market share. They spend millions of dollars a year fighting efforts by lawmakers to get toxic and carcinogenic ingredients removed from their products. They feel no guilt whatsoever about putting known carcinogens in products designed for babies. Is it any wonder that they are spreading lies about truly healthy products in an effort to confuse consumers. Their plan is if we can trick consumers into thinking the healthy product is bad for them then they will most likely just buy the really toxic national brand. Here is a link to the Skin Deep Data Base. An independent data base based on science. It shows that potassium alum is rated a 1 on a scale of 0-10 with zero being the safest. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/search.php?query=potassium+alum&h=Search Our product is extremely effective and safe. And that is not just an opinion that is science.
The true story of how Mineral Salts Deodorant Stones were discovered.
Hundreds of years ago, a very poor worker from Hangzhou China, had a low paying job, at a work shop. In order to get to his job he had to travel through a mountain pass with towering cliffs on both sides. It was a long and hard journey to climb up and over the mountain both ways, to work, and then back home.
One evening, after a heavy rain storm, when he was on his way home from his job, he was resting before continuing his climb. He happened to look up at one of the cliffs, and he saw a glittering bright light coming from the mountain. His curiosity was raging. He had to know what it was, so he started climbing the steep cliff.It was extremely hot outside and the climb was long and tiring. When he finally reached the light he found a beautiful rock reflecting light off the full moon. He was taken by the rocks beauty, so he dug the rock out, and took it home.
The rock was very cool to the touch compared to the hot summer air, so he liked to rub the rock all over his body to cool off. Because the summer is very hot in that part of China, and he was a very hard worker, he would sweat like there was no tomorrow. But he noticed that where he rubbed the beautiful stone he was sweating less and less and the smell was gone. He had found a rock that could cure sweat and odor. He took the rock to his job and let others try it, and it worked for all of his coworkers too.
The poor worker saw a great opportunity and opened a factory to mine and sell this product, that still is in operation today. Green Virgin Products sources this same factory for our deodorant stones. This mine has proven over time to be the richest find with the highest quality mineral salts in the world.
This product is the best deodorant in the world. It is safe and effective and will save you a lot of money. Order one for all your loved ones.

I love your products!! I ordered your deodorant first, and I do not stink at all. The first time I used It I noticed the difference. No other deodorant has worked as well as this does. And I mean It! Its amazing. I put it on at night and sometimes on the morning, and it works all day nothing else has ever worked for me. I love the information you provide about your products as well, anyway i'm super excited to get these soap nuts I just ordered thank you so much for proving to me that the organic is just as good actually even better than the commercial products. I love it, I love you! Thanks! ;) Consider me a life long customer.

Still on the fence on this product. I seems to work but to hard to apply.

This is the first natural deodorant that has ever worked for me! I bought it for my husband, my sister, my niece, and myself. Love this deodorant!!!

We're delighted to find a natural deodorant that really works while allowing us to avoid toxic ingredients like aluminum. Great product; highly recommend!
Posted by Brenda on Sep 9th 2013
We have tried so many natural deodorants (to many to count) and none of them measured up to yours. We have used yours for a few years now and will keep doing so because it never fails us. I have also introduced several other people to it and they love it!
Thank you so much for such an affordable great product, it is the BEST!

This works great! Was very skeptical but after reading the reviews I purchased. Glad that I did. Has worked wonderfully and well worth the money. Still perspire but no odor.
Posted by Colleen on Jul 20th 2013
The best ever. So glad I ordered this product. Going to order one for each of my teen agers. Well worth the money!!!

This is the best deoderant I have ever used. It keeps me fresh all day and leaves no marks on clothing. Plus its all natural which I like the best.

So far, this is the very first deodorant that has not caused a burning rash. My Dr. gave me a prescription for a cortisone cream to use when the rashes got very bad. I am also pleased with the effectiveness in reducing perspiration and associated odor. I live in the desert and this is a real find for me. Thank you!!!!

I really am extremely satisfied with the Mineral Salt Deodorant Stone. What I love most is the surprise I get from others after I convince them to try it. They always remark on how much better it works than their modern deodorant, as long as you wet the skin before application. Females say the salt has little burn to it after a fresh shave. As a cancer survivor, I'm very concerned with health. This deodorant is healthy, natural, simple, economical, and I support it.

I was skeptical b/c over the years I had purchased other 'crystal' salts which never seemed to work and slipped out of my hands to the floor and broke. Tried others that were liquid crystal which only were wet with no success. My friend told me of this salt and also said I needed to give it several days while all other ingredients I've used over the years melted, left and then allowed this stone to do it's job. So far I am very happy with this stone. no odor, no real wetness and doesn't seem to stain my clothes

I got the mineral salt deodorant just before a trip to tucson,arizona last week. The temps ranged from 105 - 110 degrees everyday.I was sure that I would sweat to death but the salts kept me dry...very amazing! Now that I am back in florida I will continue to use this product and enjoy being dry & healthy. thankyou so much! Patty

We were very skeptical when we bought this product, but we have used it and really like it. We have both worked out in the yard and sweat alot and there was no body odor only the smell of the out doors on us. So we are extremely happy with the natural deorderant and would definately recommend it.

I thought I was doing well for the past year, using an all natural deodorant. This stone is even better. No odor or any other issues from day 1! No mess, you can travel with it, and it lasts a long time. Nice!
Posted by Julia on May 13th 2013
I really wasn't sure that this would work, as I have tried other similar products in the past, but it is great! I have had a problem most of my life with deodorants and rashes, but no rash with this one, YEA!! Most of the time I have been using cornstarch, which is messy no matter how you do it. Now, no mess! Highly recommend this.

The absolute best deodorant I have even tried. I was an Arm&Hammer die-hard...but I have been converted
Posted by Bryan on Apr 17th 2013
Wasn't sure at first but, decided to give it a try and I will never go back to traditional deodorants.
PS Thanks Lola

I was very skeptical of a "natural" product as a deodorant, but was amazingly surprised at how well it works. I don't have to reapply after work, as I did before w/ my "store bought" deodorant. What a difference. No white lines to worry about on clothes, either. I would defininitely purchase this again, but it lasts for years...
Posted by Kel on Apr 16th 2013
I bought this for my husband. When I gave it to him to try he looked at me strangely. LOL He sweats...not an enormous amount but he likes to be outside all day and this product works wonderfully! I made him keep smelling himself the first few days (and he made me too! lol) and he did not stink one bit. Amazing stuff :)
Posted by Terry C on Apr 14th 2013
Great product. It really works! fast shipping, good price. Love the fact that it lasts so long. Excellent money saver. Love it!
Posted by JB on Apr 7th 2013
OK, this one DOES work for me. I actually bought more because it does actually work, first one I found that actually does....even bought one for my son to try and it worked for him also.
Posted by Wendy on Mar 30th 2013
It is just great. It worked so well for me that I recommended it to the people I work with and they love it too.
Posted by Deaenna on Mar 26th 2013
I have tried these crystals prior to this and they did not work ,,,strange as it may be this one is working for me.
I do not understand why but I am happy about it and will stick with this as long as it keeps working...very happy I took one more chance with this product.
Posted by Helen B. on Mar 25th 2013
I have always been concerned with using deodorant for lots of reasons, but mainly the chemicals.
The rock mineral was very smooth, and not sticky. I don't perspire heavily, and this was perfect for me. I got one for everyone in our family as well.
I will never use chemicals under my arms ever again, and I'm upset I didn't find this sooner.
Posted by S.K. on Feb 25th 2013
I am always searching for a good quality natural deoderent. I have tried many including other crystals. I thought I had found a powder product that I liked, but there were a few times that it seemed to fail me some. So far so good with this crystal stone. It is by far superior to any others out there.
