Tawas Powder is Alum Powder. It is basically used as a deodorant here in the Philippines and it is very cheap. You can find it at most Sari-Sari stores but the price will vary.


HOW TO USE TAWAS POWDER:
Tawas is soluble in water so you would just have to apply it to the areas you are sweating. I would recommend after you are done showering. Do not mix the powder with water. Apply the powder directly as it is.

OTHER USES FOR TAWAS POWDER:

Shaving:
My cousin would put Tawas powder on after he was done shaving as a way to reduce swelling and to help control infection from the tiny cuts on his face. It is a good aftershave for both men and women. It can also be used on canker sores to control the pain.
If you use Tawas powder on your feet, do it at night time before bed.

Whitening:
I did not believe this at first but, Tawas powder will whiten your skin. My cousin who puts this on his underarms is proof about that. I would attach a photo but that would be a little bit gross.

NOT USES FOR TAWAS POWDER:

Putting Tawas on your face:
I have never been a big fan of whitening products at all. I do not think they work and they are just useless. I don't think people should whiten their skin. Even though this has a whitening effect, the grains in this could irritate your face if you have acne or sensitive skin.

Mouthwash:
This probably goes for the same thing with whitening but just don't put this in your mouth. Even mixing it with water will not take away the awful taste. I recommend just buying regular mouthwash and keep using Tawas only on your armpits and feet.

Tawas Powder, as far as I know, is not dangerous. I do not know if it is safe for consumption so that's why it should not go in your mouth. Tawas is mainly a new product that I am using and I will be bringing some back with me to the states.
