Ingredients

  • Food-quality ingredients. Each ingredient is individually safe to consume.  You could technically eat this deodorant (though that is not recommended!).
  • No plastics
  • Magnesium and Calcium: They are part of your body, and it knows how to deal with them.
  • We chose "food-grade" since it is the purest and highest quality grade available.
  • Free of carbon petrochemicals, plastics, parabens and phthalates. Mineralized deodorant powder is decarbonized (no nasty oil-derived chemicals).
  • Free from aluminum and baking soda.
  • Vegan, gluten free, not tested on animals. 
  • Free of any greasy, waxy or gooey residue because it is a powder.

 

Ingredient List

Magnesium Hydroxide is an antacid and helps neutralize odor and is derived from sea water. Generally recognized as safe (GRAS/FS) as a food additive by the FDA.

Magnesium Carbonate absorbs moisture, keeping you drier. Generally recognized as safe (GRAS/FS) as a food additive by the FDA.

Magnesium Oxide (Magnesia) is a hydroscopic (water-absorbing) compound also derived from sea water.  Generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a food additive by the FDA.

Calcium Carbonate (Calcite) is an antacid and helps create an in hospitable environment for odor-causing bacteria. Generally recognized as safe (GRAS) as a food additive by the FDA.

Calcium Sulfate. This mineral absorbs moisture, and is generally recognized as safe (GRAS/FS) as a food additive by the FDA.

Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO).  A very small amount of this food-safe, organic oil is added to dampen the powder for easier application. 

(Don't want coconut oil? Try our Unscented Jojoba Mineralized, which is free of coconut oil.)

Why a powder?

It is strange to us that humans dig oil out of the ground to create chemicals that we apply to our body.

When did it become OK to do this? 

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.

Choose Mineralized Deodorant for your long-term health and for the environment.

 

Why spring water?

We chose natural, spring water ingredients for three reasons:

  1. They are chemically very simple.  As an aside, we believe it is important to eat foods with 'one ingredient' rather than processed foods that have many ingredients. Mineralized is a deodorant version of that: made of just 7 simple ingredients.
  2. The minerals found in spring water have been available and abundant for millions of years, so our bodies are very familiar (and actually require) these minerals, so the risk of long-term health consequences is low.  Compare these ingredients to much newer, often unpronounceable chemicals found in other deodorants.
  3. They are low on the industrial production food chain so they have less processing steps. Most of Mineralized is made by evaporating sea water and separating the resulting Mineral slurry.
