Boys are notorious for lacking hygiene. The award-winning personal hygiene products from Prep U are designed to combat boy stink before, during, and after activities and give parents a better option for introducing personal care into their sons’ lives.
Founded by a mom of boys in Austin, Texas in December 2017, Prep U has developed a line of all-natural personal care products specifically for active boys ages 8-17 that help tackle body odor without the use of harmful chemicals.
We are proud to have won the 2020 Eco-Excellence Award for Best Hair Care for Him, the 2018 Eco-Excellence Award for Best Skincare for Kids, and were finalists in 2019 in the Best Skincare for Him category. The Eco-Excellence Awards™ recognize excellence in social and environmental sustainability for products, services, companies and websites.
Teens go through many changes during their puberty years that can sometimes be overwhelming for both teens and their parents. Changes during puberty for tweens and teens can lead to oily skin, acne, excess sweating, facial hair, leg hair, and other changes.
Introducing an effective personal hygiene routine is important during this transition. It’s a good idea for teens to start practicing the basics of self-care in order to feel fresh, clean and confident
Daily Showers.Showering daily will help prevent odors and a build-up of oily skin. Ideally, he should wash with a mild, all-natural soap like Prep U Body Wash to avoid drying out his skin while still eliminating bacteria. Our Charcoal Bar Soap is great for drawing out odor-causing bacteria, too. He should wash all body parts thoroughly, including the more smell-prone areas that contain sweat glands, like armpits, genitals, and feet.
Washing the “T Zone” & Moisturizing.Acne is typically a pre-teen or teenager’s worst nightmare. There are certain parts of the face (called the “T Zone”) that tend to get oily, particularly the forehead, nose and chin. That’s why an all-natural facial cleanser and moisturizer like Prep U Charcoal Face and Body Scrub is a great choice for gently detoxifying and exfoliating the skin. Follow up with a lightweight, acne-fighting moisturizer afterwards.
Apply Deodorant. We break down how to choose the best deodorant for boys here and offer safe, effective Natural or Charcoal Deodorant options. Applying a natural deodorant daily (and as needed throughout the day) will keep him odor-free, but it will also keep him free from harmful toxins or chemicals. Keep in mind that you want a deodorant that will combat the bacteria, not an antiperspirant.
Prep U products are All-Natural, Sulfate Free, Paraben Free, SLS Free, Propylene Glycol Free, Phthalate Free, Synthetic Fragrance-Free, GMO-Free, Cruelty-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, and Dermatologist recommended.
