Review: Deonat Mineral Deodorant Stick

On our recent trip to the Philippines, I've made sure to add the mineral deodorant on my must-buy list. I love this product! You see, I have been a 'tawas' (alum crystal stone) user since puberty hit. 

In those days the alum stone is not packaged beautifully, just like how they did with this product. It may sound ridiculous but I was literally using the alum rock with its sharp edges. Ouch!

Mineral Deodorant Stick Product Review

In all honesty, I prefer using a mineral deodorant compared to the store-bought ones because it doesn't leave any residue on my underarms. 

It was my sister-in-law who introduced the Deonat brand to me, it's no wonder I trust them. Since we are traveling to our motherland, I have to restock my supply until our next vacation.

Product Review

  • It does everything it claims to do.
  • Cheap. $3 USD per stick.
  • Easy to apply. Glides smoothly on the skin.
  • It doesn't darken my underarms.
  • Lasts forever. Haha! One stick lasts 1 to 2 years depending on usage.
  • Unscented.

  • It's not an antiperspirant. It doesn't prevent you from sweating but does a good job neutralizing odor under there. This works just fine for me, perspiration is the body's way of eliminating toxins from the blood.
  • After many uses, the stick eventually separates from the base -- minor packaging issue for me.

Overall, I love this product. I'd even recommend it. I wouldn't be using the Deonat Mineral Deodorant Stick for many years up until now if it were not so.

Unfortunately, I don't know where to get this here in the US. I got mine from Watsons Philippines. It's also available in Lazada Philippines.

Here's an alternative. This is what I use when my Deonat stocks are used up. It gives similar results.


Have you tried using a mineral deodorant? How do you find it? If not, why don't you give it a go and see how you like it. This is what I'd usually do when trying out new products.

Well, I hope you find this product review of the Deonat Mineral Deodorant helpful. Talk to you soon then. ;)
