The Crystal Deodorant-August 2016

Hi everyone! Update on Crystal Deodorant that I reviewed a couple posts back.

I wanted to share an email I received from customer service at Crystal deodorant! Here is info I was unaware of and thought you all should know.

She told me, ” I wanted to make sure to advise you that the Stick and any of our deodorants are NOT meant to stop you from sweating/perspiring. That is what “anti-perspirants” do and is no-bueno. It is natural for us to sweat/perspire. If we don’t our pores get clogged and then the issues come. Our product(s) are meant to allow you to sweat but not smell.”

Also, ” We also have provided Cancer/radiation patients our unscented product(s). Cancer Clinics recommend our products.”

How awesome right? I, for one, don’t mind sweating, but smell is something I don’t want and Crystal will be letting me try some products to review for you guys. I’m really excited to try some naturally safe deodorants.

It gives me faith in a product when customer service is helpful and informative about their products! I’ve contacted quite a few companies and got a lot of scripted responses, but Crystal Deodorant was personable and really excited about their products!

It’s important for us to ask questions of we are unsure and this rep was super helpful!

Check out the FAQ she provided me with about the products!

Product Performance

0. How should I use Crystal® deodorants for best results?For best results, apply Crystal deodorants directly after bathing or showering. Doing so prevents the bacteria that cause odor from forming on the skin. The preventive barrier that our deodorant provides works at peak effectiveness when applied to recently washed skin.Note: If you do not apply the stick or rock directly after bathing or showering, be sure to moisten the top of the rock or stick and apply generously to clean skin. Crystal sprays and roll-ons do not need to be moistened, but work best when applied to clean skin.
