When should your kids start wearing deodorant? When they start stinking up the laundry basket! At Prep U, we make top-of-the-line hygiene products for boys and have the solutions you need.
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.
Many kids begin developing body odor when they enter puberty. Some parents are surprised to find that this often happens before the child even hits double digits in age. But, while puberty affects different kids at different times, boys typically start the process between the ages of 9 and 14 - as discussed in our blog post 'What Age Do Boys Start Wearing Deodorant?'.
As your son’s hormones shift into high gear, so may the production of sweat, which is usually the underlying cause of his body odor. This is typically the clearest indicator of when your boy should begin to wear deodorant.
You may feel your child is too young. The truth is, there is no right age for children to start wearing deodorant. Each parent and child should decide together based on what they feel is best.
Choosing the right odor-fighting, sweat-defending product for your son can be complicated. There are many options, some better than others, and it’s important to understand what the products are and what goes into them before you make a decision.
As a parent, you most likely take care to avoid unnecessarily exposing your kids to artificial ingredients in food. You can do the same with personal care!
The best deodorant option for boys is a natural one. Deodorant for boys is now available with kid-friendly packaging and naturally derived ingredients. You should be able to read and recognize the ingredients on the label instead of encountering a list of unfamiliar, potentially harmful chemicals. This will help you know you have selected the best and safest deodorant for boys with sensitive skin.
Prep U Natural Deodorant is a deodorant for boys that works a little differently than other types of deodorants. Instead of using chemical agents to fight armpit odor, it uses a combination of essential oils to deal with the problem. And, because we make it with organic and wholesome natural ingredients, it will not only fight odor and wetness, but will do it while maintaining the integrity of the boy’s skin.
Prep U Charcoal Deodorant is made for sensitive skin. The addition of activated charcoal helps to 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.
