Pressed Powder Mineralized
When you first get Mineralized, it will be a loose powder. We recommend pressing Mineralized into a pressed powder with you applicator. After that, it is much neater and very easy to apply.
After, that, applying is simple:
- Some prefer to apply with their shirt already on. This helps with the powder rubbing off on clothes as you get dressed.
- The applicator can be stored inside the container
Mineralized not as effective as you want? Here are some things we have learned:
Clothing or underarm odor?
We have found that underarm odor can reside in your underarm, your clothing, or both. Firstly, we suggest checking your clothes and underarm independently to determine if your clothes are responsible.
Using other deodorants tends to leave a buildup of residue in your clothing that most laundry detergents do not remove easily.
Quantity + Every Nook
Are you applying enough? You could experiment with adding a little more. Be sure to get it in every spot in your underarm, including the folds near the front and the rear. Sometimes there can be smelly spots.
Some have reported that it doesn't work, but after some experimenting what is actually happening is the powder is rubbing off on clothes (while getting dressed, for example). We learned this when winter came and some people started wearing tighter fitting under layers.
For those we recommend putting on your first layer of clothing, and then applying Mineralized up UNDERNEATH that layer. This does two things: a) minimizes the chance that it is rubbing off while putting on your clothes, and b) keeps all the powder in the underarm area.
Ineffective for ~5%
It simply doesn't work for about 5% of the population, and we don't know why at this time (it is related to personal biochemistry). You could be in that minority.
The true test to determine if you are in the minority is to reapply a liberal amount of Mineralized AFTER you notice an unpleasant odor. If the odor doesn't vanish, then it doesn't work.
Depending on how much is applied and how sweaty of a day you might be having, a small number of people have found they need to reapply during the day.
