People have been using potassium crystal since antiquity. It is particularly favoured in Asia where it is used as a natural antibacterial agent and deodorant. Potassium crystal is a mineral compound made up of alum and potassium crystals - a completely natural product. Sweating is a natural bodily function that regulates body temperature. Many bacteria find sweat zones to be the perfect environment in which to multiply. These bacteria are responsible for unpleasant odour.
Biork crystal deodorant slows the production of bacteria and prevents the build-up of unpleasant odours. It lets the skin breath and perspire naturally. This is a natural anti-bacterial product, perfect for all types of skin – even the most sensitive.
100% natural, vegetable, hypo-allergenic, fragrance-free, no animal testing, no aluminium chlorides.
The container is made of cork and also serves as a protective covering for the crystal. Cork is a renewable resource and is recommended by nature conservation associations. One single natural cork alone binds eight grams of the greenhouse gas CO2. In addition, cork helps to preserve one of the most biologically diverse habitats in Portugal.
When an antiperspirant claims to be “aluminium-free,” they are saying it does not contain aluminium chlorohydrate, aluminium chloride, aluminium hydroxybromide or aluminium zirconium—all forms of aluminium commonly used in antiperspirants and deodorants. To stop the flow of sweat to your skin’s surface, the aluminium plugs sweat ducts in the top layer of your skin stopping the natural flow of sweat to your skin’s surface. This aluminium can also be absorbed into your body where it can then build up as part of your body burden.
The aluminium in crystal deodorant stones is a different type of aluminium, called alum. The most common form is potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminium 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. Biork™´s crystal deodorant lasts longer than you are used to from other deodorants. In addition, the potassium alum contains important minerals. Of course, all ingredients have been dermatologically tested.
How to Use
Moisten the tip of the stick and glide it gently over the important areas. Remember to dry the stick with, i.e., a towel after use. Caution For external use only. Keep out of reach of children.
Cork trees save up to 30% more CO2 than other trees With an area of approximately 2.3 million hectares, the Mediterranean cork-oak forests absorb approximately 13 million tons of CO2 per year. Portugal's cork trees bind approximately 5% of the country's CO2 emissions. The bark of the cork oak is harvested every nine years and processed with little waste into various cork products. It is the only tree on earth, whose bark can be removed without harming the tree. A cork oak whose bark is harvested regularly binds even more than three times as much CO2 as an unused cork oak.
