What Is A Deodorant?
For those who don’t know. A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits, groin, and feet, and in some cases vaginal secretions. A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Antiperspirants are used on a wider range of body parts, at any place where sweat would be inconvenient or unsafe, since unwanted sweating can interfere with comfort, vision, and grip (due to slipping). Other types of deodorant allow sweating but prevent bacterial action on sweat, since human sweat only has a noticeable smell when it is decomposed by bacteria.
Types of Deodorant
Before you choose a deodorant, get familiar with the choices. Some deodorants offer a very noticeable scent, while others may have no scent. Others may feel different when they are applied. Consider the options with your tween in order to make the best choice.
Aerosol: These deodorants usually spray on and have a powdery finish when dry. They offer very good protection, but the product may be cold when first applied. Aerosol deodorants are ideal for the gym or locker room. They can be shared easily with others, as the applicator never touches the skin.
Roll-On: Roll-on deodorants are easy to apply, but because they are a liquid, they can be cool and wet when first applied. They usually offer good odor protection.
Gel or Cream: These deodorants are a thick liquid when applied, but usually dry clear. They are often very good at keeping body odor away.
Invisible Solid: Invisible solid deodorants are a solid, powdery stick that when applied is clear and dry. They are an ideal choice if your tween is worried about residue on their clothes.
Solid or Bar: Solid deodorants are also powdery and go on dry. But they may leave a bit of residue on clothing.
Crystal: Crystal deodorants or antiperspirants are made of natural mineral salts. They are a good choice for tweens who embrace natural products or who have very sensitive skin.
Wipes: Deodorant wipes are individually packed, single-use, and disposable. wipes. They are ideal for trips or for keeping on hand for those days when you forget to apply your regular deodorant.

What You Need To Know About Baking Soda In Solid Deodorant
If you use too much of baking soda in your deodorant; you may experience irritation, which simply means that the deodorant is made with too much baking soda—for YOU and your body chemistry!
This is because human sweat is slightly acidic with a pH range of 4 to 6. The pH of perspiration varies from person to person and is affected by age, gender, race, medication, diet, or even hormonal changes that can occur during pregnancy, menopause or your monthly period. The natural pH of an individual’s sweat can actually cause an irritation or even a burning sensation when mixed with baking soda.
Natural deodorant formulations are very different from their conventional counterparts.
