Surprisingly, there are many things to consider when picking the right deodorant! Here are some of the questions we frequently get from customers. Just click on the question to see the answer.
We only use 100% pure essential oils for fragrance, so all of our deodorants smell very natural and not at all artificial or “chemically” like some brands.
Just a couple of rolls per armpit is plenty. We recommend they rub their arms against their body a few times (as if running) to help spread the deodorant, then letting it dry for a few minutes before getting dressed. Apply every 12 hours for best results.
The long answer: Some of the ingredients in our deodorant are certified organic (e.g., our gums and essential oils). Others are 100% pure and either food-grade or cosmetic-grade (e.g., our zinc oxide and kaolin clay). Others are minimally-processed natural extractions (e.g., our glycerin and witch hazel). All ingredients, however, are high-quality, naturally-derived, and 100% kid-safe!
Sesame, peanut, gluten, dairy, egg, talc, soy, nut oils, silicone, and artificial fragrances.
However, please double-check the full ingredient list to make sure your child is not allergic to any of the ingredients before using.
In short, when it comes to personal care products, preservatives = safety. But, of course, there are good and bad preservatives. We steer clear of the scary stuff (like parabens) and use just a small amount of two naturally-derived preservatives that are both mild, non-irritating, and non-carcinogenic.
Be very careful with natural personal care products (especially liquids) that claim to be “preservative free.” They’ll need to be used up or discarded within a matter of weeks.
We also explored spray deodorants, but the odor protection tends not to last as long and they can leak in bags. Our liquid roll-on is really the best, safest, and most portable format for kids to use.
