Natural Roll-On Deodorant

Anti-perspirants are designed to block sweat from coming out of the body. We believe this to be unhealthy as the body is designed to sweat and it is part of a healthy elimination process. However, we do understand that sometimes people need a deodorant. This does not stop the body from sweating but it does slow down the bacterial breakdown of the sweat which is what eventually causes the bad smell.

We prefer to use Deocrystal Stone Powder instead (INCI Name: Potassium Alum). This is a natural deodorant that has a molecular size that is too large to be absorbed into the skin. It stays on the surface where it inhibits bacterial growth, thus giving a deodorant effect.

Stage 1

Method:
  • Weigh the water and pour into a bowl. Weigh the Konjac Glucomannan powder and sprinkle over the water to cover the surface then whisk vigorously for a few seconds only. This is meant to be a very thin gel. If you whisk too long, you will get a thick gel that is no use for this product.
  • Crush the Deocrystal Stone Powder into the gel until it is dissolved.
  • Cool down to below 40°C then stir in the remaining ingredients, don't whisk. Bottle into a roll on bottle and label.
  •  
    The essential oils should be chosen for their deodorant qualities such as Lavender, Patchouli, Cypress and Ylang Ylang.

“We have not formulated a solid stick deodorant so do not know if the finished product would be stable with the rest of the ingredients you are making the solid stick with, sorry.”

“It is unfortunate that you are allergic to Aloe Vera as we have no ideal alternative.
The Aloe Vera is included to help lower the pH of the product which then lowers the pH of the skin making it less hospitable to bacterial growth. It also acts as a buffer to soothe the skin.
We suggest adding that 8% to the water instead, making that total 81%. However this does mean that the product will be less effective.”

Hello there, I would love to make this deodorant, however, sadly I am allergic to Aloe Vera. Any ideas on what I could replace the aloe with?
Thank you

“This is something that can happen sometimes. Try stick blending the solution when you are dissolving the Deocrystal Stone Powder to see if that will help it to fully dissolve.”

Kind Regards

despite dissolving the potassium alum, there still remains a residue, when it is cooled down. Is that normal? Apart from that, the product is perfect

thanks
