The alum stone is one of our favourite products due to its many properties.
· basic antiperspirant
It is Alum, NOT Aluminium Chlorohydrate. The “aluminium” (aluminium chlorohydrate) that is contained in industrial products is a synthetic ingredient of antiperspirants and deodorants, designed to be absorbed into and to block the pores under the arms to prevent perspiration – it might have a connection with breast cancer.
This stone is a solid moulded lump of crystallised alum, which is a naturally mined mineral salt.
It comes in a very thin film for hygiene reasons but it does not contain any other plastic or packaging….and it last for more than 5 years, so imagine that amount of waste that you are saving to the Earth in that time!
