FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO BODY ODORS OCCUR?
Many people think that their sweat naturally stinks, in reality sweat has no smell (does your hand sweat smell bad?)
Bad smells happen when bacteria (mainly staphylococcus hominis) that grows in dark and humid places lunch on the nutrients left in your sweat, that process releases bad odors (that are usually tied to what you ate)
HOW DOES CRYSTEOUS WORK?
Once in contact with water, the powder tries to get back to its crystal origine, forming a lipidic layer on the area where it's applied, this layer prevents smell causing bacteria (staphylococcus hominis) from feasting on your sweat, preventing bad odors at the source.
DOES CRYSTEOUS REQUIRE ME TO CHANGE A HABIT?
Yes, if you're used to spray or stick deodorant, switching to Crysteous will require you to change that habit into that of rubbing a bit of powder on your armpit. It will feel a lot more natural once you get the hang of it though.
So, if you're a person that dislikes change, this product is not for you... Yet.
HOW DO I USE A POWDER DEODORANT?
Once after each shower, dip two fingers in the powder, that'll cause you to pick up a thin layer of powder, rub that under your arms and you're good to go (no need to be thorough, it's an easy straightforward process)
IS CRYSTEOUS AN ANTI PERSPIRANT?
Yes and no.
Many anti perspirants clog pores so that you don't sweat, Crysteous does not.
Because of its salt properties, it shrinks pores, making you sweat a lot less than you normally would, but you still get to sweat when you have to.
We have to remember that sweat is a natural waste management system and we have to respect it.
IS CRYSTEOUS A HEALTHIER SUBSTITUTE TO REGULAR DEODORANTS?
Yes, Crysteous is made of one ingredient only, that has been tested as a deodorant for humans since the pyramids existed.
It is recommended by a skin doctor, by my grandma, by ayurvedic principles and by nature.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS CRYSTEOUS?
Crysteous can handle a day long hike in the middle of july leaving you smell like... Well nothing.
IS CRYSTEOUS A GOOD SOLUTION FOR PEOPLE WHO SWEAT A LOT?
If you sweat more than the norm, Crysteous should definitely be the deodorant you try next, you might never try another deodorant in your life.
DOES CRYSTEOUS CONTAIN ANY HARMFUL CHEMICALS?
No, it's a completely natural solution, made of one simple ingredient, Crystal alum, which is cleared by the FDA as safe and is used in many pickling techniques.
Basically, if you eat pickles, it's probably in your system already.
