How Does it Work?
Your perspiration, when it first leaves your body is sterile and odorless. When it comes in contact with the bacteria that lives on your skin, the bacteria multiplies, and it's the multiplying bacteria that causes the odor. The mineral salts deodorant stone leaves a thin film of the salts on your skin and the bacteria can not thrive in the mineral salts environment. Therefore no odors. You will not smell at all. It works better than toxic cover up deodorants. It's also a natural astringent that can be used like a styptic pencil to stop small bleeding from shaving etc.
How Long Does a Stick Last?
Since only a very thin film of mineral salts is used each time you put it on, a stick of our 4.25 ounce Mineral Salts will last well over 2 years in normal use. I have been using the same one for over 3.5 years. It's a huge money saver.
What about the stains on the arm pits of my clothes?
Those days are gone. Our Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone will not stain your clothes at all.
Is there a break in period?
Some people have reported that if they were using an antiperspirant they had a slight odor for a few days when they first began using the mineral salts deodorant stone. But then the odor went away and now they have no odor. We think this is because antiperspirants actually clog the pores in your underarms. Toxins build up in your body, and when you use a product that does not clog your pores the toxins come pouring out and you get an odor. If you are one of the few people that this happens to just wear some cologne or perfume for a few days and then you will be healthier and odor free. If you feel it stops working after a while it is possible though rare that a crust can form on the surface of the mineral salt stone preventing the salts from dissolving onto your skin. If this happens just rough up the stone with some sand paper or a nail file and it will work like new again.
How Does it Feel to Wear Mineral Salts Deodorant?
It feels clean and fresh. It feels like you have nothing on. No white residue. No sticky feel. No perfume smell. No waiting for it to dry. Just clean, fresh and healthy.
Why should I switch to Green Virgin Products Mineral Salts Deodorant Stones?
Green Virgin Products 100% pure Mineral Salts Deodorant Stone contains no aluminum, carcinogens or toxic chemicals which are typically found in national brands. There is a growing controversy over whether aluminum compounds cause breast cancer and Alzheimer's. However, it is documented that the known carcinogens and toxic chemicals in national brands of deodorants can cause cancer and many other debilitating diseases. Deodorant is particularly dangerous due to the fact that it's worn constantly. These highly toxic chemicals are absorbed through our skin.
The true story of how Mineral Salts Deodorant Stones were discovered.
Hundreds of years ago, a very poor worker from Hangzhou China, had a low paying job, at a work shop. In order to get to his job he had to travel through a mountain pass with towering cliffs on both sides. It was a long and hard journey to climb up and over the mountain both ways, to work, and then back home.
One evening, after a heavy rain storm, when he was on his way home from his job, he was resting before continuing his climb. He happened to look up at one of the cliffs and he saw a glittering bright light coming from the mountain. His curiosity was raging. He had to know what it was, so he started climbing the steep cliff. It was extremely hot outside and the climb was long and tiring. When he finally reached the light he found a beautiful rock reflecting light off the full moon. He was taken by the rocks beauty, so he dug the rock out, and took it home.
The rock was very cool to the touch compared to the hot summer air, so he liked to rub the rock all over his body to cool off. Because the summer is very hot in that part of China, and he was a very hard worker, he would sweat like there was no tomorrow. But he noticed that where he rubbed the beautiful stone he was sweating less and less and the smell was gone. He had found a rock that could cure sweat and odor. He took the rock to his job and let others try it and it worked for all of his coworkers too.
The poor worker saw a great opportunity and opened a factory to mine and sell this product, that still is in operation today. Green Virgin Products sources this same factory for our deodorant stones. This mine has proven over time to be the richest find with the highest quality mineral salts in the world.

We were very skeptical when we bought this product, but we have used it and really like it. We have both worked out in the yard and sweat alot and there was no body odor only the smell of the out doors on us. So we are extremely happy with the natural deorderant and would definately recommend it.

I thought I was doing well for the past year, using an all natural deodorant. This stone is even better. No odor or any other issues from day 1! No mess, you can travel with it, and it lasts a long time. Nice!

I really wasn't sure that this would work, as I have tried other similar products in the past, but it is great! I have had a problem most of my life with deodorants and rashes, but no rash with this one, YEA!! Most of the time I have been using cornstarch, which is messy no matter how you do it. Now, no mess! Highly recommend this.

The absolute best deodorant I have even tried. I was an Arm&Hammer die-hard...but I have been converted

Wasn't sure at first but, decided to give it a try and I will never go back to traditional deodorants.
PS Thanks Lola

I was very skeptical of a "natural" product as a deodorant, but was amazingly surprised at how well it works. I don't have to reapply after work, as I did before w/ my "store bought" deodorant. What a difference. No white lines to worry about on clothes, either. I would defininitely purchase this again, but it lasts for years...

I bought this for my husband. When I gave it to him to try he looked at me strangely. LOL He sweats...not an enormous amount but he likes to be outside all day and this product works wonderfully! I made him keep smelling himself the first few days (and he made me too! lol) and he did not stink one bit. Amazing stuff :)

OK, this one DOES work for me. I actually bought more because it does actually work, first one I found that actually does....even bought one for my son to try and it worked for him also.
Posted by Wendy on Mar 30th 2013
It is just great. It worked so well for me that I recommended it to the people I work with and they love it too.

I have tried these crystals prior to this and they did not work ,,,strange as it may be this one is working for me.
I do not understand why but I am happy about it and will stick with this as long as it keeps working...very happy I took one more chance with this product.

I have always been concerned with using deodorant for lots of reasons, but mainly the chemicals.
The rock mineral was very smooth, and not sticky. I don't perspire heavily, and this was perfect for me. I got one for everyone in our family as well.
I will never use chemicals under my arms ever again, and I'm upset I didn't find this sooner.

I am always searching for a good quality natural deoderent. I have tried many including other crystals. I thought I had found a powder product that I liked, but there were a few times that it seemed to fail me some. So far so good with this crystal stone. It is by far superior to any others out there.

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A PRODUCT THAT WOULD CONTROL ODOR. GLAD TO HAVE FOUND YOUR PRODUCT.

I'm glad I purchased the Mineral Salts Stone. It appears to work as advertised. The first couple weeks I would use after my shower and noticed an odor on the stone from applying to my underarm. So I would rinse before applying to my other underarm. This week has been a very stressful week starting a new job with my company and I did not have any perspiration or odor. Once applied, it dries fast and invisible. Thanks for a wonderful product!!!

I was a little skeptical, but decided to take a chance. This stuff really works, even better than regular deodorant. You still sweat, which is good because you want your body to be able to release toxins, but the sweat is odorless for a good 12 hours. It goes on easily after a pass through the tap water, and doesn't leave a stain. My whole family uses it now and everyone agrees it works perfectly!

My son told me about this product, so I tried it, I'm sold!

I've used this stone for months, even during a hot summer, and have never had such great results. It certainly will last two years, just don't let a curious cat into the bathroom with you--my cat knocked it onto the tile floor and it broke into three pieces! I just ordered two more, one to use and one for a spare, he's a very persistent cat!

I was skeptical but this is great! No odor, no color, no residue, no toxins I'm exposed to. I bought 28 more a wk later to give to staff and family as Xmas gifts

We have only been using this for about a week now but its already obvious that it works wonders.. I'm not a big sweater to begin with so i can't say it makes me sweat less but i don't smell when i do sweat even if i skipped a shower one night still no odor. my girlfriend also loves it.. there's no residue no irritation its pretty swell!
