"My 17 year old son was struggling to find a natural aluminum free deodorant that worked for him. Natural deodorant for teens keeps up with his busy days of working in a restaurant & sweaty nights of skate boarding. I feel good giving it to him because I know it's not harmful to his body."

Sunflower Oil

This oil is a serious hydrator and packs a bunch of additional benefits. Since sunflower oil is non-comedogenic, it won’t clog pores and it won’t irritate most people. This can be used on all skin types including acne-prone skin. This carrier oil soothes the skin, hydrates, and strengthens the skin barrier. This oil comes from the flower that is found in the Southwest United States and contains high levels of linoleic acid, which is a fatty acid that our skin produces naturally. Sunflower oil is also thought to have anti-inflammatory properties that calm the skin.

Some additional benefits of this super-powered ingredient are:
• Strengthens the skin barrier as it contains omega-6 and omega-9, both have been shown to contribute to tissue and cell strength
• Delivers antioxidants and vitamins to the skin such as Vitamin E
• Soothes irritating skin
• Won’t clog your pores

Caster Oil

This is the superstar of all oils in the clean beauty industry. It is rich in antioxidants, proteins, vitamin E, and unsaturated fats. It also absorbs easily and repeals water, which is very effective when locking in moisture. Castor oil is made from the bean of the Ricinus communis plant and is a thick warm, yellow consistency.

The overall benefits of caster oil include:
• Antibacterial properties to help fight bacteria that lead to acne
• Moisturizes the skin
• Promotes overall skin health

Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis)

This fantastic oil has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties not to mention it is great on the face and body. Super hydrating, full of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. This oil acts like our own sebum. Jojoba oil also has high amounts of iodine, which fights bacterial growth. And given our pits have very thin skin, which is prone to dryness and bacteria, this was a no-brainer ingredient that we had to have in our products.

The overall benefits of Jojoba Oil include:
• Deeply Hydrating
• Moisturizes
• Nutrients for the skin - full of vitamins E and B
• Anti-Microbial -- Naturally deters microbes which helps prevent the growth of bacteria on the skin
• Gentle on all skin types - especially skin types that are sensitive

Virgin Coconut Oil (​​Cocos Nucifera)

This magical elixir is made from the white fleshy part of the coconut. It is refined down to an oil, which is solid at room temperature but when heated up will turn back to a liquid form. The benefits of coconut oil are that it hydrates the skin. It is made up of fatty acids that help reduce dryness and allow your skin to retain moisture. It helps protect the skin giving your skin that protective barrier against environmental pollutants. Coconut oil also improves the texture of your skin over time. It absorbs easily into the skin and soothes irritated skin.

The overall benefits of coconut oil include:
• Locking in hydration - coconut oil helps your skin’s protective barrier layer which traps moisture in the skin
• Provides antioxidants
• Absorbs easily

Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii)

Our plant-based deodorant is made with Shea Butter. Shea Butter is made from the nuts of a shea tree and is native to West Africa. It has a high concentration of fatty acids and vitamins. Shea is safe for all skin types and doesn’t contain chemical irritants known to dry out the skin. It doesn't clog pores. There are many reasons why we used Shea Butter; Its anti-inflammatory properties trigger cells to slow their production. This has high levels of vitamins A & E, which promote healthy skin. Shea tree products are widely known for their anti-fungal properties.

The overall benefits of Shea Butter include:
• Boosts skins moisture
• Anti-inflammatory properties soothe skin issues
• Helps fight breakouts and blemishes
• Softens dry skin

Arrowroot (Maranta Arundinacea)

Did you know that arrowroot is packed full of materials and vitamins such as zinc, iron, potassium, and vitamin B6? This makes this a perfect ingredient to provide relief from skin irritations such as rashes, acne, and skin sores. We used this as a substitute for talc and cornstarch in our products. It is similar to cornstarch, but it is finer and less irritating to the skin.

The overall benefits of Arrowroot include:
• Contains NO Gluten
• Packed with Vitamen-B
• The new Baby Powder Alterative -- contains no talc!

Frankincense (Boswellia Carterii)

Frankincense is an antiseptic and disinfectant agent that has antimicrobial effects. It has the ability to eliminate cold and flu germs from the home and the body naturally. Frankincense oil induces feelings of peace, relaxation, and satisfaction. This oil is known as the “king of essential oils” and is known as the “liquid gold” for your skin.

The overall benefits of Frankinscense includes:
• Anti-inflammatory properties calm affected areas
• Natural astringent - Protects the skin cells
• Known to reduce blemishes
• Aromatherapy properties - lower stress levels, calm anxiety


Eucalyptus is widely believed to decrease symptoms of stress but the most effective and well-known benefits of eucalyptus oil are its antibacterial, moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also sought after as a natural remedy to work well for nearly all skin types (oily or dry) but as always, one should test it on a small patch of skin before applying it all over in the event of sensitivities.

Overall benefits of Eucalyptus oil include:
• Antibacterial - helps cleanse the epidermis of impurities that contribute to breakouts.
• Natural bug deterrent


Bergamot is a natural remedy for many skin problems making this a great choice for teenage products. Its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties can help reduce the bacteria on the skin which lead to blemish outbreaks.

The overall benefits of Bergamot oil include:
• Naturally deodorizing properties - great for body care products
• Antimicrobial and antibacterial properties - reduce the bacteria on the skin
• Has been known to fight inflammation and breakouts naturally.

Antiperspirant vs. Deodorant

A common misunderstanding is that deodorant and antiperspirant are interchangeable; this couldn't be further from the truth! Deodorants mask body odor caused by sweat, while antiperspirants prevent sweating completely. Sweat itself isn't actually smelly- it's what happens when our skin bacteria mixes with perspiration producing a funky smell-- so you can put your worries to rest!

How long does your stick of deodorant last?

Prep U Natural Deodorant lasts around a month if applied normally.

What happens if I leave my deodorant in the heat and it melts or seems too hard to apply?

Whether you are a natural deodorant veteran or just sticking your toe in the all-natural product pool for the first time, check out these handy tips as sometimes shipping and warehousing may cause the product to be different than expected. If your new deodorant seems:


  • Too Soft or melted, turn upside down and stick in the fridge. It will harden and reform to the top of the deodorant topper. The deodorant topper has a protective seal inside the cap to prevent leakage.

  • Too Hard, no worries! Just warm up the stick by holding it to your skin for 1 minute. Once that’s done, the product will glide on nicely.


What happens if I'm switching from an antiperspirant to a deodorant?

You may be a savvy, natural deodorant veteran, but if you’re not, congratulations on making the move. Your body will thank you for it. However, when switching to a natural deodorant we feel it’s our duty to inform you of the stages that MAY occur while your body gets used to your new, more natural self after moving away from antiperspirant.


  • Stage 1: Jury is out. Your body doesn't know what to think.

  • Stage 2: Oh, you will smell funky. Don't worry, it won't last long. Sweat is not what smells, it is the bacteria in the skin and clothes that stink.

  • Stage 3: You will ask yourself, Do I always sweat this much? This is normal.

  • Stage 4: Ahhhhh, that's better! Your body should be acclimated to the new deo.*


Pro Tip: You can use a talc-free powder to absorb moisture if you feel uncomfortable. The best time to detox and change to an all-natural deodorant is in the winter. Less sweating!


*Please note, everyone's body detoxes at different speeds. This could go less or more time depending on how your body metabolizes.

Who can use this product?

Yes! Sweat and body odor don't discriminate. While we are focused on destinkifying guys, our products can be used by anyone, and age (over 8 years old).
