A client had mentioned the Crystal line of deodorants as a standard for a naturally derived Doedorant. I looked at the line and noticed it uses Ammonium Aluminum (Aka Ammonium Alum) as the active.

If it is an Aluminum compound, why isn't it an OTC Antiperspirant.

Secondly what percentage are they using. I have done some extensive searches with little to no luck.
