Lamari natural deodorising body spray with Potassium Crystal Alum.
When it comes to using a deodorant, we always use one that has no synthetics and contains natural ingredients. If you look at the ingredient list of your deodorant/anti-perspirant, chances are that there are chemicals that are added to prevent your sweat glands from functioning normally (sweating is a normal bodily function, your body’s way of releasing unwanted toxins and to keep you cool). There are also added chemical-based fragrances that coat your underarms, masking odour. As we know that studies of these ingredients have been linked with Breast Cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. So to be safe we rather use a deodorant that has natural ingredients. Aluminum is the most famous offender, and it is listed as aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum zirconium and tetrachlorohydrex gel. Triclosan is another, Talc sounds innocent, but that could contain asbestos, and then the famous parabens and we know all about those!
So instead of reading labels which is very interesting we have chosen for you a fantastic australian made deodorant from lamari,we are also pleased that this product is listed in the cosmetic data base with a toxic level of zero.
My husband who works outside all day as a tradesman who sweats all day in the humidity only has to apply this product twice a day to remain smelling fresh.
The “active” ingredient in Lamari deodorising body spray is potassium alum (natural volcanic source), a natural derivative of mineral salts. It remains on the surface of the skin. It allows the skin to breathe and works by killing the odour-causing bacteria. Potassium alum possesses a unique chemical formula, different from harmful aluminium’s, and has a large molecule size which cannot be absorbed by the skin. Mineral salts inhibit bacterial growth and neutralize body acids in perspiration. Lamari deodorising body spray allows perspiration which is a good thing because it helps cool the body. Natural alum is considered safe and is not linked to Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer or any other Western diseases. In India it is even added to drinking water to help purify the water!
Potassium alum, which is a naturally occurring mineral salt are found in quarries throughout the world. Potassium alum’s appearance can be described as a translucent crystalline stone that contains veins like those found in marble. Potassium alum has many commercial applications, as well as varying natural benefits, but for the purpose of crystal deodorant, it prevents odour by stopping odour causing bacteria produced in sweat from growing. Therefore, it is quite different from traditional deodorants which use heavy fragrances to mask odor, or antiperspirants which use chemicals to clog pores and block sweat. Natural potassium alum is odourless, chemical free, alcohol free, hypoallergenic, non-sticky, non-staining, and non-irritating.
When potassium alum is used for deodorants it is commonly referred to as alum stone, crystal deodorant or deodorant stone; however they remain one and the same. And, it acts as a very effective odour preventing deodorant. Synthetic deodorant stones are chemically manufactured by synthesizing aluminum hydroxide (ATH) with acid (ammonium alum, potash alum). And the final product looks very similar to the natural potassium alum stone. But, you can observe the difference between the synthetic stone and the natural stone – the synthetic stone is almost completely opaque, due to the presence of aluminum hydroxide, and the natural stone is translucent.
