Crystal Deodorant Stick
While in theory most deodorant aerosol cans and roll-on tubes can be recycled, most deodorants and antiperspirants are full of chemicals that once you've done a bit of research, you probably want to avoid putting on your skin.
Sweating is a natural bodily function that regulates body temperature so using a product that stops you sweating is not necessarily a good thing. The reason that body odour can result from sweating is due to bacteria. Natural deodorants slow the production of this bacteria and prevent the build-up of unpleasant odours. It lets the skin breath and perspire naturally.
Biork crystal deodorant is a sustainable roll-on plastic free deodorant made from potassium crystal - 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.

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.

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.
