Glands in the armpits derive aqueous acid compounds as a natural detoxification process. This alkaline deodorant neutralizes escaping moisture and prevents unpleasant bacterial decomposition processes.
We have significantly increased the Rügen healing chalk percentage compared to our other alkaline products. Especially in the case of a deo-cream, it is important that the leaking acidic moisture is bound and neutralized via the sweat glands. The Rügen healing chalk with its high content of calcium carbonate (approx. 98%) is designed for this purpose. Today, many people are hairless under the armpits. When applying the deodorant, the snow-white natural product of the island of Rügen applies its anti-inflammatory effect as well as positively influencing the wound healing process in small cuts or scratches. Cell biological findings confirm this effect (Prof. Dr. C. Peter Dartsch, 2011 study).
With the white gold from Rügen, Swiss medical stones and zeolite skin powder are used as further medical products. Both pure, natural, peloids and natural minerals have physicochemical properties. They absorb metabolic end products and exogenous toxins from the organisms of the epidermal microflora.
The detoxification properties are not only based on absorption, but also through the ion exchange function of the sweat pores. This means that our alkaline deodorant, with negatively charged polyanions, withdraws positively charged protons (organic metabolic acids such as uric acid, lactic acid, butyric acid) from the body through the sweat glands of the armpits and binds or neutralizes them. The bacterial decomposition process is therefore inhibited and the resulting odour is prevented.
Matching oils complete the recipe of the deodorant cream. Castor oil is less common in classic skin care products, however we value the good protective properties against external influences. Dandruff is softened and loosened and scar tissue remains elastic.
Less common still, coconut oil, which has a pH of about 8.0, offers a deodorizing effect. It contains fatty acids that kill bacteria responsible for the decomposition and smell of sweat without irritating the skin. The popular oil creates a smooth, soft skin feel without greasing.
Jojoba oil is actually not oil, but a liquid wax. Chemically, the fatty acids are associated with fatty alcohol and not glycerol. The waxes of jojoba oil blend easily with the human sebum and form a lipid film that retains the moisture of the skin. There is no sealing (occlusive) layer on the skin. We decided to add jojoba oil to our deodorant because it removes the sustenance of microorganisms and cannot be metabolized. Incidentally, the wax stabilizes the other oils, because it is characterized by an exceptional resistance to oxidative processes.
Sage oil primarily acts against bacteria, fungi and viruses and has deodorizing properties due to its essential oil content. The Latin name Salvia officinalis derives from the verb salvere and means to heal.
Despite the abundance of deodorant sprays, deodorant creams, deodorant sticks and so on, it is often not easy for the end customer to find the right product for them. Sometimes the fragrance does not fit, the effect often leaves something to be desired or the ingredients are questionable.
Michael Droste-Laux alkaline deodorant with sage oil is perfume-free and corresponds to controlled and certified natural cosmetics by EcoControl GmbH (according to NCS Natural Cosmetics Standard, a standard of the Society for Applied Business Ethics).
