While traveling in France in 1984, Jerry Rosenblatt, Founder and CEO of Crystal™, was introduced to a manufactured product made of mineral salts, which purifies water. That same product, he later discovered, also worked as a natural yet powerful hypoallergenic deodorant! Jerry began importing the deodorant mineral salt, and assembled a small team of friends to shape, mold, smooth, and package each stone by hand. No two rocks were the same; each measuring anywhere between eight to ten inches in diameter and weighing between six to nine ounces. Jerry named the product Le Crystal Naturel®.
