• Works Perfectly

    "Not only [does] this work, it also couldn't perform any better because it works PERFECTLY.
    I've never come across a deodorant - clean or toxic - that works like this one does.
    I'll also never search for another deodorant ever again because I don't think anything could possibly work (and feel) better."
    -Maria

Why worry if the ingredients are safe when you can know they are?

Mineralized is made of the minerals native to your body.

  • Unbelievable Powder

    "This powder is just simply unbelievable, no stink and can sometimes last two days.
    I've now been using it for a year and I simply don't know what I would do without it. It works on other body parts as well, and the smell is subtle and wonderful.
    I can't believe this product exists, and it took me so long to find it.
    This is simply the best deodorant ever."
    -Ed

The cleanest possible deodorant

We have a background in science.

We researched the scientific literature on body odor.

We looked for simple mineral compounds to neutralize body odor.

Mineralized Deodorant:

-neutralizes odor

-comes from nature

-is made of minerals native to your body

Truly a new concept: made of minerals, not chemicals.

How are we different?
  • So Glad I Tried It

    "This is the only natural deodorant that has worked for me.
    Other natural deodorants would make the odor worse throughout the day.
    With Mineralized I smell fresh and feel dry all day! This stuff is amazing.
    I am so glad I decided to try it"
    -Jenna

Great for sensitive skin

Non-irritating. No baking soda.

Not sticky or greasy.

Our most sensitive customers tell us they had given up on wearing deodorant.

Until they found Mineralized.

    (3) It goes on dry and feels refreshing; no more icky-sticky. 
    (4) No aluminum. 
    (5) No staining of clothes. 
    (6) It works everywhere - private areas included. 
    (7)  It works on feet, even after 14 hours.  When visiting, I can leave my shoes at the door with no concern that my feet or my shoes will offend. 
    (8) Negatives:  none.
    I've tried dozens and dozens of sprays, roll-ons, glide-ons, powders, home-made concoctions, and very pricey products.
    Not one has all of the eight benefits listed above."

Symbiotic products

In the long term, the entire product life cycle for ALL products should be a sustainable cycle with our environment.

The water cycle and the carbon cycle are two examples from nature.

Each step in the cycle naturally leads to the next.

Compare this to how humans generally behave.

We introduce new packaging and chemicals to the environment, without regard for what effects they will have.

These externalities can disrupt the environment to varying degrees.

Look at micro-plastics or "forever chemicals" to name a few negative examples.

Mineralized is a closed cycle.

We source minerals from sea water.

We use those minerals to solve a problem: body odor. Those minerals later are washed back to the sea.

This is the future we have to build.

We are trying to build that future now.

The most harmless product

What if your deodorant was made of the things ALREADY in your body?

It would be a higher standard.

It would be the cleanest possible deodorant.

This is what we did with Mineralized.

Mineralized uses Magnesium and Calcium to stop odor.

Substances native to your body.

Your body already manages magnesium and calcium. They are part of the natural rhythms of your body.

Mineralized is BEYOND natural. It is made of ingredients that are naturally IN YOU.

Ingredients

Benefits

  • Very gentle on skin: No aluminum or baking soda. The "deodorant of last resorts" for many with sensitive skin.
  • pH very slightly alkaline.
  • "Feels like nothing" underarm feel. Free of any greasy, waxy or gooey residue because it is a powder. People love the way it feels!
  • Non-toxic: Free of plastics, petrochemicals (chemicals from oil), parabens, phthalates and lilials, and hormone / endocrine disruptors.
  • Vegan, gluten free, not tested on animals.
  • Won't stain clothing (if you get it on your clothes, it easily brushes off. Even dark clothes).
  • All are now free of coconut oil (May 2024) and use organic jojoba oil instead.

 

Made of minerals magnesium and calcium.

 

Ingredient list:

Announcement: All are now free of coconut oil and use jojoba oil instead (May '24).

Magnesium Hydroxide is an antacid and helps neutralize odor and is derived from sea water.

Magnesium Carbonate absorbs moisture, keeping you drier. 

Magnesium Oxide (Magnesia) is a hydroscopic (water-absorbing) compound also derived from sea water.  

Calcium Carbonate (Calcite) is an antacid and helps create an inhospitable environment for odor-causing bacteria. 

Organic Jojoba Oil.  A very small amount of food-safe, organic oil is added to dampen the powder for easier application. 

Essential oils* (in scented Mineralized). We source high-quality (organic when possible) essential oils for our scents.

*Cherry blossom is technically "fragrance oil", not an essential oil.  It is free of parabens, phthalates, Lyrals and Lilials (all known to have negative effects on humans). All others are essential oils, organic when available.

 **Jasmine Notes: We have been selling this for about a year, and have learned that this scent is extremely polarized. A portion of the population thinks this scent smells wonderful, and the other side thinks it is terrible. We think this is a similar situation to the herb cilantro: some love it, some think it smells like soap (jasmine does not smell like cilantro, just the extreme differences in opinion are similar). If you try it and don't like it, let us know by email and we can either refund it or replace it.



Mineralized is the non-toxic deodorant powder.

It is made of things that are ALREADY in your body.

Compare that to chemical deodorants, full of bodily-foreign ingredients.

Mineralized uses magnesium and calcium to stop odor.

Stuff your body is familiar with.

Your body already manages magnesium and calcium.

They are part of the natural rhythms of your body.

Mineralized is BEYOND natural: It is completely non-toxic, by design.



    Food-quality ingredients

    Each ingredient is the highest purity ("food grade") and is safe to consume.  You could technically eat this deodorant (the unscented version).

    Eco-friendly: the majority of the ingredients come from evaporating sea water and harvesting the remaining residual minerals. Not digging oil from the ground.

    Why a powder?

    Oil-derived chemicals are what make common deodorants into sticks, gels, and creams. They create the texture.

    The environmental impacts of the oil industry are well known.

    The long-term health effects of applying these chemicals to your body are, at best, unknown.

    Mineralized Deodorant Powder does not use these chemicals.

    We made a simple, clean formula in a raw form: a mineral powder.

    Choose Mineralized for both long-term and environmental health.

    "Natural" is mostly marketing jargon now

    For some companies it means:

    "Ingredients that came from something natural that sounds safe".

    They are still chemicals that are foreign to your body, and untested in the long term.

    The big idea with Mineralized is it is made from stuff your body already has in it.*

    Magnesium and Calcium.

    So no unknown long-term health effects of these foreign chemicals.

    *(Apart from a tiny amount of coconut and essential oils for scent and consistency).

    Mineralized Formula

      Magnesium and calcium ingredients that neutralized body odor.

      The formula was invented by a scientist turned creator.

      We studied the scientific literature on the chemistry of body odor.

        We then looked for compounds that satisfied 3 conditions:
          1. Neutralized body odor
          2. Made of minerals that are already in your body
          3. Made of minerals that are naturally found in spring water sources.

           

          Mineralized is a new concept in deodorant that sits at the intersection of those three conditions:

           

          Explanations:

          1. Firstly, it has to eliminate body odor.

          2. To be harmless to your body for the long term, we chose minerals that are familiar and native to your body.

          3. Short story: It is a return to natural water sources. Longer story can be found here.

           

           

          Our formula is made of simple magnesium and calcium compounds (ingredients).

          It does not contain baking soda, aluminum, or any chemicals. And it works.

           

          Eco-Friendly

          Eco-Friendly Product Life Cycle

          Where do your products come from, and where do they end up?

          We put a lot of thought into this when building Mineralized. We aren’t perfect, but we are ahead of most others.

           

          Sustainable Product Packaging

          We are plastic-free.

          Recyclable: our main container is made of recyclable aluminum.

          Refillable: biodegradable cardboard refill containers, just fill up your container.

          The applicator sponge is only 70% biodegradable. We are actively testing a fully biodegradable option that also works as an applicator (to see if it is actually biodegradable, as it is quite new technology).

          We chose an applicator that has a long lifetime: it can be washed repeatedly without wear.

          Shipping: lightweight, and no plastic in our shipping materials.

           

          Mineralized Powder

          We are free of petrochemicals.

          Many personal care products use chemicals that are derived from oil.  This is how many common deodorants are made into sticks and gels. 

          Even “vegetable-derived” chemicals come primarily from corn, a monocrop that is being shown to be harmful to the planet.

          Mineralized ingredients are commonly sourced from evaporating high-mineral-content water (such as sea water), and the mineral residue is separated for use in industry. Specifically, most of our minerals come from the dead sea.

          This is much better than digging oil out of the ground. 

          Powder lifecycle: when you shower and Mineralized rinses away, you are only adding the same minerals back into the water where they came from.

          Origin of Mineralized

          Founder's story

          I (James) studied engineering in undergrad ("engineering physics", which is sort of a mix of engineering and physics) and afterwards worked for 6 years as a scientist doing physics research. I left that just before finishing my PhD (getting a Masters during the process) to begin a new career.

          After science, I worked a corporate job that paid well but lacked real meaning to me. I was fired from that job 8 years, and decided not to continue in that field.

          I gave away most of my possessions, put my meaningful things in storage, and started what ended up being a two-year road trip taking me all over the country.

          I spent much of that time in nature: hiking, backpacking, swimming in lakes or rivers, and just being.

          With the space to actually think, I started coming up with questions.

          Some of the questions I asked were: why do humans smell bad to other humans?

          On the large scale we are meant to procreate with each other, doesn't body odor just inhibit that?

          I started wondering, did people always smell bad to each other? 

          If not, what are some things that have changed over the last few thousand years?

          Asking this question, along with all the time I was spending in nature, led me to the observation that the water we bathe in is different now. In most of the developed world, the water has been sanitized, chlorinated, and commonly is free of minerals.

          Perhaps that was contributing to why we now smelled? 

          There were many possibilities, but this is the one I started investigating.

          My background in science made me comfortable searching the scientific literature for answers. 

          In the scientific literature, I investigated:

          What causes body odor? 

          What were the chemical structures of the molecules that caused body odor? 

          How could these chemicals be neutralized, so they wouldn't smell anymore?

          And the key question was, "is there a combination of mineral compounds that might neutralize these odorous chemicals, that are found both in spring water and in the human body"?




          My reasoning was that anything already found in the human body would be likely to be non-toxic and safe for long-term use.

          After some self-testing, I found a combination of simple magnesium and calcium compounds that actually worked as a deodorant. 

          I then asked a handful of loyal friends to try the new formula, and it worked for them too! And not only that, many praised the powder for a clean and light feel.

          That is how Mineralized Deodorant Powder, both the product and the business, was born.

          We first started selling to the public in April, 2020.

          • Nothing Compared To This

            "This is the best deodorant I've ever used.
            It is non irritating, stops sweat and odor.
            I've told everyone I know that's looking for a nontoxic option to purchase this.
            I've tried so many others and nothing compared to this."
