PitRok Push-up Crystal Deodorant
March 11, 2009
A pure mineral salt deodorant stick – free from everything except mineral salts!
“PitRok deodorant prevents bacteria from multiplying without blocking pores – no bacteria no odour! Excellent, extremely long lasting protection leaves no white marks on clothes and dries quickly while allowing the elimination of toxins”.
- Natural bacteriostatic action
- Does not block pores
- No aluminium chlorohydrate or aluminium zirconium
- No propellants
I had seen these sticks around and if I am honest was slightly skeptical. But after having a reaction to deodorant, I decided to give Pitrok’s crystal deodorant a go as it contains no aluminium or other pore blocking ingredients. Then I stumbled across Jorge Gacia’s (Hurley from Lost) blog where he was saying how well it worked. So I figured if it keeps whiff at bay on a tropical island, it will work here in England! :)
I’ve tried a few other natural deodorants and found them to be effective for a short while but after a while I get a little smelly. However, I have been massivly impressed with this product. I really didn’t expect it to work so well. You rub the stone under your arms after you have showered and your underarms are still wet. Rubbing this on my underarm felt quite strange as I was literally rubbing a smooth stone on my arm pit – it doesn’t smell of anything and I couldn’t see anything. You can also apply this stone after you have shaved your underarms and there is no stinging.
The main thing to bear in mind with this product is that it’s a deodorant not an antiperspirant – it will stop odour forming but will not stop you sweating. I had been wearing it all day, cycled to my local supermarket, cycled back with a backpack full of food and cooked dinner in a warm kitchen and no smell! So I have no hesitations in recommending this product.
The cheapest place I’ve found to buy Pitrok Crystal Deodorant is Sainsburys supermarket for £4.39. I’ve also seen a travel sized stone for £2.14 (non Pitrok brand) in Whole Foods which is ideal if you don’t want to buy a massive stick of it.
This range of deodorant is also available as an unscented spray, a scented spray and an original stone (not in a push up container).
- Pros: Absolutely no odour, very natural
- Cons: None…
Ammonium Alum (pure natural mineral salts)
