Biork: Potassium Alum Crystal Deodorant Stick
This is a true eco-friendly, skin-friendly deodorant. The potassium alum crystal allows your skin to breathe and perspire, as it should. It is the body's way to regulate its temperature and keep you healthy. It's really the bacteria that thrive in our sweat that cause the odours we associate with summer and hot weather.
What the potassium does, is deal with the bacteria. It is a natural mineral salt that forms a protective layer on your skin, inhibiting the growth of the odour-causing bacteria.
It is packed in earth-friendly cork, a renewable, recyclable and biodegradable resource that has many ecological benefits. A cultivated, harvested cork oak stores up to 30 times more CO2 than any other tree. It is cultivated in Portugal, where the oak forest has been growing for over a 1000 years, sustaining a precious eco-system.
There are no harsh chemicals, no irritation causing ingredients in this deodorant. No aluminium-chlorodydrate, aluminium-chloride, aluminium-hydroxybromide or aluminium zirconium.
This deodorant is fragrance-neutral, so is therefore perfect to use with any perfume, or if you like, no perfume at all.
