When Do Boys Need Deodorant?

When boys begin experiencing body odor, they do need to begin using deodorant in most cases. Prep U products deserve consideration as all-natural stink solutions.

All Prep-U products consist of natural ingredients, abstain from animal testing, and promote hygenic routines for boys ages 8-17. From deodorant to body wash, face wash, dry powder, and more, Prep U’s entire catalog can be of use as sons transition into adulthood. The price point will fit within your family's budget as well.

When Do Boys Need Deodorant?

Why Ingredients Matter

Let’s discuss a few of the harmful ingredients commonly found within modern deodorants.

  • Parabens - used to inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi, and yeast in the armpit's moisture and warmth. When parabens are absorbed by the skin, they begin functioning as estrogen. Not only can prolonged estrogen exposure affect the hormone balance of a person, but it can also lead to cancer growth.
  • Aluminum - used to block sweat in antiperspirants, aluminum has been linked to health conditions including cancer.
  • Phthalates - this common plasticizer has been linked to a host of health problems ranging from autism to male fertility issues.
  • SLSs - this type of detergent can cause eye injury, depression, diarrhea, severe skin irritation, and death.

Tween and Teen Deodorant Products

Tweens and teens who need a safe deodorant that avoids using these ingredients can look to Prep U. None of our products include these ingredients, instead harnessing the power of vegetation to combat body odor.

Whether you choose Prep U products or another deodorant for children, choose gel or solid, not aerosol. Kids might inhale and cause respiratory issues or spray themselves in the eye. You should also watch out for any sign of a reaction from deodorants. An unanticipated allergy is possible with any product, but Prep U is intentionally designed for sensitive skin and suggested by dermatologists.

Natural Elements for Use as Deodorant

  • Witch hazel
  • Essential oils like tea tree oil, sage, lemongrass, rosemary, etc.
  • Mineral salts
  • Baking soda
  • Coconut oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Shea butter

Prep U formulations include some of these natural ingredients, among others, in a unique combination that conveniently and naturally eliminates unpleasant odors without irritating the skin. The Prep U Aluminum-Free Natural Deodorant includes arrowroot powder, beeswax, candelilla wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, silk powder, stearic acid, virgin coconut oil, vitamin E, zinc oxide, bergamot essential oil, frankincense essential oil, neem tree essential oil, and eucalyptus essential oil.

The Prep U Charcoal Deodorant employs the same formulation with the addition of activated charcoal to remove toxins and bacteria that causes odor.
