Alum stone (polished)
Natural alum stone (80g.) polished for a practical use on the skin. Alum stones are used as a deodorant because of its antiseptic and astringent properties. The fine powdery residue, left after its use, covers the epidermis and act as an effective bactericidal shield that effectively kills-off any bacteria living on or come into contact with the skin without clog pores.
