Has your child stopped smelling like rainbows and rose petals and has become a sweaty, stinky mess? According to our blog “What Age Do Boys Start Wearing Deodorant?”, Prep U makes the best natural deodorant for your 10-year-old boy that will make him smell better and add to his confidence.
Prep U was launched in Austin, TX, by founder and CEO Michelle Houp, mother of two active boys, who was seeking all-natural, high-quality personal care products for boys ages 8-17 that could guide them through the transitional years between toddler and adult.
Prep U products are made without parabens, dyes, sulfates, aluminum, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, genetically modified organisms, nanoparticles, or gluten. They are also not tested on animals. We only select ingredients from companies who do not test on animals, and when we are in the process of developing new products, we only test them out with human volunteers.
Your boy’s first experiences with body odor are often a sign of the start of puberty. This typically happens in the pre-teen years, so your 10-year-old son may be ready for deodorant before you think he needs it. While puberty affects different kids at different times, boys typically start the process between the ages of 9 and 14.
His body beefs up, his voice cracks as it changes, he becomes stronger, and he begins to mature sexually. As his hormones shift into high gear, so may the production of sweat, which is usually the underlying cause of body odor. This is typically the clearest indication of when your son should begin to wear deodorant.
Even if you feel your son is too young, the truth is that there is no right age for a child to start wearing deodorant. Each parent and child should decide together based on what they feel is best.
Many people use the terms deodorant and antiperspirant interchangeably, or think they are the same thing, but there are clear differences.
Antiperspirants are designed to stop or dry up perspiration by blocking pores with the help of aluminum salts, and deodorants are designed to curb body odors caused by sweat by covering it up with fragrance or antibacterial compounds.
At Prep U, we are proud of our award-winning deodorants. Prep U Natural Deodorant is designed for teen boys. Instead of using chemical agents to fight armpit odor, it uses a combination of essential oils to combat the problem.
Prep U Charcoal Deodorant is made for sensitive skin. We add activated charcoal to help draw out odor-causing bacteria and toxins. It’s also great at keeping underarms dry and odor-free without the use of aluminum, parabens, or other harmful ingredients.
Prep U deodorants are packed with only ingredients you can pronounce and find in nature. Some of those wholesome ingredients include shea butter, jojoba oil, neem tree oil, candelilla wax, arrowroot powder, beeswax and essential oils. They are good for sensitive or regular skin, are aluminum and paraben-free, and are effective enough to keep odor at bay while making your son smell fresh.
Finding the best deodorant for your 10 year-old boy will take some trial and error, and what is right for one tween or teen may not work for yours. Prep U has a solution or two that are well worth your consideration. Contact us online for more information.
