Body odor is common in boys, particularly as they go through puberty. The best deodorant for your 7-year-old boy will protect his delicate skin from harsh chemicals. Prep U has solutions that are well worth your consideration.
Launched in December 2017, Prep U Products is a unique collection of all-natural personal care products designed specifically for active boys ages 7-17. Ready to take on the smells of boyhood, we empower boys with an age appropriate brand that guides them through the transitional years between toddler and teen, while introducing personal care into their daily lives.
Many people use these terms interchangeably, or think that antiperspirants and deodorants are the same thing. But there are clear differences between them.
Antiperspirants are designed to stop perspiration by blocking pores with the help of aluminum salts, and deodorants are designed to curb body odors caused by sweat by using fragrance or antibacterial compounds.
To ensure your son is using an effective, safe solution, we recommend an all-natural deodorant, such as:
Prep U Natural Deodorant: Safe for everyday use, this deodorant is aluminum and paraben-free and tough enough to handle the most rigorous activities.
Prep U Charcoal Deodorant: This safe, all-natural deodorant is made for sensitive skin without all the harmful chemicals. Activated charcoal draws out odor-causing bacteria and toxins and absorb these impurities.
Prep U deodorants are made 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 and regular skin and are effective at keeping odor at bay while making your son feel good about smelling good.
Are you thinking that your 7-year-old boy is too young for deodorant? The truth is, 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.
Body odor is linked to puberty, so it's important to determine if your son has started puberty already. Boys typically start puberty between the ages of 9 and 14, but it can happen earlier. Signs of puberty can include vocal changes or underarm/pubic hair.
Precocious (early) puberty can occur for no known reason, but there are some medical conditions that may cause the changes. If you think puberty is starting too early, talk to your pediatrician, who can determine if your son is growing and developing as expected and help you understand the biology that's at work.
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 indicator of when your boy should start wearing deodorant.
If you get a whiff of something stinky from your son's armpits, the time may be right to teach him about the basics of personal hygiene, including about wearing deodorant.
