If hugs from your son have begun to be marked by you holding your breath, it’s time to introduce a safe, natural deodorant for your 9 year old boy. Prep U provides a line of hygiene and personal care products that harness the power of all natural ingredients to help you enjoy all the hugs he’s willing to give!
With insights only a boy mom could have, Michelle Houp created and launched Prep U in 2017. The mission of Prep U is to deliver a full catalog of self-care products made of all-natural ingredients and appropriate for tween and adolescent males as they develop a lifetime commitment to hygiene and respect for self.
Most popular deodorants contain potentially harmful ingredients. Parabens, phthalates, and aluminum are just a few of the ingredients commonly found in popular deodorants even though they’re known to be dangerous.
Another issue with common deodorants is the inclusion of antiperspirants. They’re known to use aluminum salts to clog sweat glands and potentially cause tumor growth, yet major companies continue to use them in deodorants and antiperspirants.
Fortunately, companies like Prep U offer alternatives. Our deodorants aren’t antiperspirants. Your son will still sweat, but it won’t stink.
Deodorants made from natural ingredients can be strong enough to overcome the power of a puberty-driven stink. As difficult as this fact might be to believe, it’s true. We encourage you to give Prep U deodorants a try for your son. Since they’re made from natural ingredients, they’re also safe enough to use before the beginning of puberty so that the habitual use of deodorant is well-established before the issue occurs. As with any segment of life, practice makes perfect. Leaving the development of this habit to after the need for the product only sets your son up for the ridicule of going out and about without protection from the funk.
The best time for your son to begin using deodorant is a highly personal decision. Clearly, by the time you can smell his approach, it’s too late.
Puberty begins at different times and is a highly individual stage of development. In our view, early preparation is the best approach. Enforce regular use of Prep U Natural Deodorant from an early age to ensure that he’s prepared to deal with body odor before it happens.
Award-winning, animal friendly, and vegan, Prep U products are carefully designed and produced by the batch at our facility in Austin, TX. We offer two deodorant products.
Prep U Natural Deodorant makes use of Jojoba oil, Coconut oil, Vitamin E, and essential oils to fight stink and protect skin.
Prep U Charcoal Deodorant is gentle enough for sensitive skin, as are all of our products. Activated charcoal forces bacteria and toxins out of the skin and encourages the body to remain dry and without odor.
The ingredients in Prep U deodorants occur in nature. They include arrowroot powder, beeswax, candelilla wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, silk powder, stearic acid, virgin coconut oil, vitamin E, bergamot, frankincense essential oil, neem tree essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, zinc oxide, and activated charcoal.
Prepare for puberty before it arrives. Puberty can begin as early as 9 or as late as 14, but no matter the year old, Prep U provides a safe, natural deodorant for his use. Discover more about any of our products online
