If your 10 year old boy has recently developed a musty stink otherwise known as BO, your search for a safe, natural deodorant should begin. The answer to this perfectly normal rite of passage is Prep U. Our products are natural, safe, and effective.
Deodorant and antiperspirant are distinct products. Antiperspirants prevent sweating through the use of aluminum salts while deodorants overcome the odor caused by sweat and bacteria without stopping the body from sweating. Both may contain hazardous ingredients, but antiperspirants, because of the presence of aluminum salts, should be avoided at all costs.
Additional ingredients that ought to be avoided include parabens, triclosan, artificial dyes, and synthetic fragrances.
Founded in 2017, Prep U, operating out of Austin, TX, designs and produces a full catalog of natural products made for tween and teen boys. As a boy mom, the founder recognizes the difficulty of establishing self-care and hygiene habits, the need for starting early, and the essential nature of safe and natural products.
