It is believed that the first recorded use
of Potassium Alum was in ancient China and Egypt for the odor reducing effects.
Approximately 100 A.D. is when the Roman historian Plinus documented the
manufacturing of ALUMEN ROMANUM through the repeated dissolving of potassium
alum slates in water. The resulting large crystals were mainly used to relieve
In the 8th century, the first standardized production of alum through multiple crystalization took place in what is believed to be Mesopotamia. These high quality crystals were called ALUMEN DE ROCCA. In 1248 A.D. a large alum factory was built in Naples. There the production of a high grade potassium alum crystal was used for medicinal purposes, while an industrial grade potassium alum was used for tanning leather and what is believed to be one of the first commercial producers of paper.
In the 15th century, Bartholomew Perdix recored the existence of an alum factory on the island of Ischia. Giovanni de Castro founded the famous alum factory of the Vatican in 1458. This gave the Pope the monopoly of alum which was enjoyed until the 16th century when a large number of alum factories existed in Germany. In the 17th century, alum production began in England. In 1777, French chemist A.L. Lavoisier gave the first correct description of Kali-Alum, which is still produced in Europe and used primarily in industrial purposes.
With a long history and a variety of uses, POTASSIUM ALUM has remained a vital part of industry and health care, but Deodorant Stones Of America has perfected the production of an all natural crystal of potassium alum that is 100% effective, economical and safe to use on our bodies. Doctors from revered medical facilities such as the Mayo Clinic have recommended crystals for their patients with dermathtis and the Walter Reed Army Hospital recommends THAI deodorant stone and mists for their patients who are post operative cancer patients receiving radiation treatment.

DSA's deodorant stones are made of potassium alum. It is a pure product made without the addition of chemicals, fragrances, oils or alcohol. The chemical formula for potassium alum is K2SO4Al2(SO4)324H20. Potassium alum is a colorless substance that forms octahedral or cubic crystals.
Bauxite is the ore from which alum is drawn. It is formed by the rapid weathering of granite rocks in warm, humid climates and can be purified and converted directly into alum.
Potassium alum is soluble in seven times its weight of water at room temperature and is very soluble in hot water. When crystalline potassium alum is heated, some of the water of hydration becomes chemically separated, and the partly dehydrated salt dissolves in this water, so that the alum appears to melt at about 90 degrees C (approx. 392 degrees F), potassium alum swells up, loses all water, and becomes a basic salt called burn alum. Potassium alum has a density of 1.725.
Alum's are used for a variety of uses including as a powerful astringent.
If an aluminum compound, such as aluminum chlorhydrate or aluminum zirconium, which is very soluble, is used as an antiperspirant, that compound is readily absorbed. Once in the body, the aluminum portion of the molecule ionizes, forming free or radical aluminum (Al+++). This passes freely across cell membranes, and forms a physical plug, that when dissolved is selectively absorbed by the liver, kidney, brain, cartilage and bone marrow. It is this concentration of aluminum that has been the source of concern in the medical community and has prompted the research being done on ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE and BREAST CANCER victims. Potassium alum molecules have a negative ionic charge, making it unable to pass through the cell wall. THEY ARE NOT ABSORBED. This is why our deodorants are safe to use and will not cause high levels of ALUMINUM in your system. ALUM and ALUMINUM are two different substances, with distinct chemical signatures. They possess different chemical properties which create different chemical attributes.
We hope this information helps to dispel some of the misunderstandings about ALUM and puts your mind at ease about the safety of all of DSA's deodorant products.
