Potassium crystal has been used as a natural antibacterial agent and deodorant since antiquity. It's a naturally-occurring mineral compound made up of alum and potassium crystals. Like other natural deodorants it doesn't prevent sweating, which is a natural and necessary bodily function that helps to regulate body temperature. Body odour is caused by bacteria that can multiply in sweat zones - potassium crystal slows the reproduction of bacteria and prevents unpleasant odours while allowing the skin to breathe. It's hypo-allergenic and fragrance-free, so suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

About the packaging: The container is made of cork from the cork oak tree, which grows naturally in one of the most biologically diverse habitats in Portugal. Cork trees save up to 30% more CO2 than other trees and a single cork binds eight grams of CO2. Covering approximately 2.3 million hectares, the Mediterranean cork oak forests absorb approximately 13 million tons of CO2 per year; Portugal's cork trees bind approximately 5% of the country's CO2 emissions. The bark of the cork oak is harvested every nine years and processed with little waste into various cork products. It is the only tree whose bark can be removed without harming the tree - a cork oak whose bark is harvested regularly binds more than three times as much CO2 as an unused cork oak. 100% biodegradable packaging.
