Homemade Natural Deodorant For Kids That Works

Summer’s are hot and we want our children to remain active. We also want them to be confident and develop good hygiene habits. Unfortunately it can be hard to find deodorants and antiperspirants  that don’t contain harsh chemicals that frighten us.

Which chemicals should we avoid?

Some of the chemicals that we should keep our kids away from are:

  1. Aluminum
  2. Parabens
  3. Talc
  4. FD&C colors
  5. Triclosan
  6. Triethanolamine and Diethanolamine a.k.a (TEA & DEA)
  7. Propylene Glycol

To learn why these chemicals are considered harmful, read the following article Dangerous Chemicals in Deodorant & Antiperspirant: A Detailed Review of the Chemicals, Research & Avoidance Tips, but to have a balanced view you should also read Antiperspirant Safety: Should You Sweat It? When it comes to our little ones, we shouldn’t worry, so giving them something natural to control their sweat that we can trust is only reasonable.

Where can you buy natural deodorant?

There are places like Whole Foods, Mom’s Organic Market, Yes Organic Market, Trader Joe’s, GNC, and other natural food stores that sell natural deodorants but the prices can be excessive, from $9.99 – $23.00 for a container that may not even be suitable for your child’s needs.
