Mineralized is not like the other deodorants
"Definitely not traditional, but it is very effective!"
It works for sensitive skin because:
it is only made of minerals,
No baking soda
A magnesium and calcium deodorant powder.
"At first I was a little apprehensive of the powder form.
But I love it now and haven't used a stick deodorant in months"
Powder: How to apply
Application is easy:
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.

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.
Free of baking soda and aluminum.
Free of all chemicals. Made of minerals magnesium and calcium.
- Very gentle on skin: No aluminum or baking soda. The "deodorant of last resorts" for many with sensitive skin.
- pH very close to neutral.
- "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).
- Coconut oil free version available (made with jojoba oil instead), for those with nut sensitivities.
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.
Calcium Sulfate This mineral also absorbs moisture and balance the formula.
Fractionated Coconut Oil or Jojoba Oil. A very small amount of food-safe, organic oil is added to dampen the powder for easier application.
(Don't want coconut oil? Try our Ultra Senstive Mineralized, made with jojoba oil )
Essential oils (in scented Mineralized). We source high-quality (organic when possible) essential oils for our scents.
Only 6 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.
"It does not irritate my skin, and it works!" -Toni
Scented or Unscented
All Mineralized are great for sensitive skin, based on customer feedback.
Our scented deodorant powders use essential oils, not "fragrance".
For those that have particularly sensitive skin we recommend Mineralized Ultra Sensitive.
More about Mineralized
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.
- Neutralized body odor
- Made of minerals that are already in your body
- 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:
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 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.
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.
Sample size lasts 6-8 weeks,
Full size lasts 5-8+ months.
~$0.10 per day.
"No rashes So for the first time in many years I am using deodorant each day."
"I'm happy to report that Mineralized doesn't sting, itch, or burn - if anything, it leaves skin feeling silkier than before. The powder doesn't feel chalky and it doesn't bleach the skin; by patting the sponge you can blend it in."
Not traditional, but very effective!
"I have a deodorant allergy to most store deodorants so I try pretty much any natural deodorant idea I can find.
I bought the jojoba because I know coconut oil can block my pores, my skin just prefers the jojoba.I found it very easy to use, and no irritation!
If I've already washed and I smell good, it does prevent any whiff of body odor until evening time without reapplying.
Definitely not traditional, but it is very effective!"
