Body Deodorant Roll-On
It contains aluminum
This product is very effective and the reason is it contains potassium alum which is aluminum. I've been using this for years and did research on potassium alum. I always thought this was free of aluminum but it is not. So it is goodbye because when you use this everyday for years you wonder what the potassium alum is doing to your body.
There are deodorants out there that are completely free of any form of aluminum.

Non sticky but became stuck
Not sure why no one else had this problem,. I am used to using the Naturally Fresh
Roll-On Deodorant Crystal but when I tried this Crystal it had a roll top that would not move. No matter how much hot water or rolling around I did with the item product would not apply on me. I'm sticking with the naturally fresh as this was unacceptable. It's not Swanson's fault that this happened but buyer beware of the possibility. I am lucky that tossing it only cost me $2.49.

I've used this product for many years and have been very impressed with it. After reading another review here, I'm now concerned about the potassium alum, which is claimed to be a form of aluminum. However, my experience has all been positive and I use it on my underarms and my feet. But in the last year or so the roller balls on the top of the roll-on bottles have become very dysfunctional and I've been tempted to find another product to replace this one for that reason alone. I'm currently researching alternatives.

Works.... because it's full of aluminum.
This deodorant works VERY well - because it's chock full of aluminum.
They market it as not containing a particular KIND of aluminum, so as to make you think it isn't "the bad kind", but aluminum is aluminum is aluminum. Super angry about this.
Also, they have changed the formula, and added, among other things, baking soda, which I believe is the reason the rollerballs no longer roll. At all. Ever. On multiple bottles.
If you don't care about whether or not you are using aluminum, this stuff is great - rather, the old formula which will actually dispense is great. For those of us avoiding aluminum, know that this stuff is almost nothing but.

Best deodorant ever!
This is the best deodorant I've ever used, i have very sensitive skin and can't use antiperspirants. Deodorants usually need to be reapplied every couple of hours, but not this one! It keeps working all day! Excellent price too! :)

As good as fabreeze
One thing I like about this is that it is not sticky, does not contain the aluminum stuff, and it doesn't smell like deoderant

Great esp if you don't want scent!!
My husband and i have used Crystal Body deoderant now for almost a year. We love it and love how long it lasts and that it's not harmful like traditional deoderants...my only suggestion to Swanson is however is that you need to sell a variety of Crystal scents...Their lavender and pomegranet scents are very good also!! I have used other aluminum free deoderants and they have burned me but not this one!

This product was suggested to me by someone I know who has written a book on nutrition and health. I have completely switched to this product and also purchased it for my daughter. I was warned that it may not be as effective as my normal deodorant so I may need to re-apply it. I think it may be slightly less effective at blocked order, but the benefits of an aluminum-free product are worth it.

Roller-Ball problem Solved Yea!!
I cannot use the products with Aluminum and had tried something similar to ’Crystal’ … however the roller-ball gave me trouble … it was totally stuck. Finally I up-ended the bottle in my hottest tap water 3 or 4 times, for several hours each time. Now I store the bottle upside down, that seems to have solved my problem and I certainly do like the product. Yes I will be purchasing it again, thankfully.

great natural product
This is a great and effective deodorant. It won't stain clothes with white residue, and works as well or better than the other products on the market. In the hot summer it is also good around the bra line area. Swanson price is about half the price of the same product found in health food stores.

keeps odor away!
This works better on odor than any commercial deodorant I've ever used! It does not stop wettness so I need to use it with an antiperspirant in the summer. It's great that is has not scent & it's rated very low on toxins by the Environmental Working Group.

This product smells so bad, I had to hold my breath when I put it on. Not very effective either...at the end of the day, I was not "fresh as a daisy."

It smells like BO before you even put it on. I like good smells or no smells.

Good all natural protection
What I like about this all natural deodorant is that it doesn't contain the aluminum ingredient in most other deodorants, the price is right, and it keeps me dry.

Works great all day
It is the first product which keeps working 24 hours and it is healthy. It took me years to find it, but seems like I find a great place to look for healthier
products and supplements.
I like to read about health and I usually find the supplements or product at Swanson for much less.

not for tender skin
This deoderant works just fine but the roller ball does not. I have tender skin and found the roller ball to be painful because it does not roll smoothly until it is all wet, but by then the damage has been done. Storing the bottle upside down helped some but not enough.

I used to use "clinical strength" un-natural deodorant. This is the first natural deodorant I have used and it works great!!

Simple and quick
I have used the Crystal Deodorant for a long time, but cannot find it in the stores. This website was easy to use, the product arrived quickly and as usual, I love it. I stocked up so I don't have to buy it again for a while. I recommend Swanson!

I have used Mitchum for years, and tried Tom's. I love the Crystal product. There is no sticky feeling and it absolutely prevents any body odor, though completely unscented. A real bargain too.

No Nonsense Deodorant
Deodorant, NOT antiperspirant, so it doesn't stain your clothes yellow. I am a heavy exerciser and perspire a lot, but have never had a problem with unpleasant body odor while using this roll on. Can't ask for more, and it's a great price here at Swanson.
BTW, can be used on feet, too.

A Safe Choice
This liquid goes on wet so I try to let it dry before getting dressed, but it seems to work well even if I don't have time to let it dry completely. I like it because it's not sticky like other natural solids. It has no scent and has never stained my clothes.
I can buy this at my grocery store, but it costs more there. If you're not ordering from Swanson, you are paying too much.

This really works!!!! I like that it is natural and really keeps odors away!

You will love this safe for you deoderant. The roll-on is easy to use, leaves no marks on fabric and smells good.
