Natural Alum Deodorant Stick
The trend towards a mineral or crystal deodorant is unbroken. More and more people complain about skin irritations when they use deodorants with aluminium chlorides and other artificial ingredients.
Sweating is a natural and important body function to regulate body temperature. The sweat forms an ideal breeding ground for bacteria that multiply and gather there. This can cause strong unpleasant odours. Conventional deodorants, so-called antiperspirants, try to prevent sweating.
The aluminum in crystal deodorant stones is a different type of aluminum, called alum. The most common form is potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate.
Potassium alum (and other alums) is a natural mineral salt made up of molecules that are too large to be absorbed by your skin. They form a protective layer on your skin that inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria.
Cork is a no waste material that is obtained from the bark of cork oaks. Cork oaks grow in the southwestern Mediterranean countries of Spain, Portugal, Algeria and Morocco. They are one of 150 endemic tree species.
Because of its impermeable, buoyant, elastic, and fire retardant properties, it is used in a variety of products. We want to pass this high-quality natural product on to our customers in an ecologically meaningful form: That is why cork holds and protects the mineral stone. Cork is a renewable raw material. It is easy to recycle and is recommended by nature conservation organisations.
Cork oaks contribute in a highly valuable manner to mitigating climate change. They store up to 30 percent more CO2 than other trees. With an area of around 2.3 million hectares, the Mediterranean cork oak forests absorb around 13 million tonnes of CO2 per year.
A cork oak whose bark is harvested regularly binds more than three times as much CO2 as an unused tree.
The cork oak biotopes are among the biologically richest in the world and have one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world among the forest habitats. By using cork, you contribute to the conservation of these ecosystems. Cork can be disposed of in all public recycling centres.

Cork is a zero waste material derived from the bark of cork oak trees. These oaks are found in the south-western Mediterranean countries of Spain, Portugal, Algeria and Morocco. They are one of 150 endemic tree species. The cork for this pack is made from cork oaks from Portugal, where the cultivation and bark peeling has a centuries-old tradition.
Cork is highly valued for its elasticity, strength, lightness, moisture, heat and sound resistance and its virtually non-combustibility. It is easily recyclable and has impregnating properties, so that its products do not need to be treated with impregnants or other chemicals.
And even environmentalists are encouraging its use: cork oak makes a very valuable contribution to mitigating climate change. They store up to 30% more CO2 than other trees. And a cork oak that is regularly stripped of its bark accumulates > 3 times more CO2 than one that is not used.
Although bark stripping seems to be a somewhat cruel process, it does not harm trees. The trees are not cut down – the work is done entirely by hand and by a person who knows the process well – and the bark grows back later. Most importantly, cork oak groves are the perfect refuge for more than one endangered species of animal and plant. The roots of the oaks also stop soil erosion.
