Choosing a gentle deodorant for girls
When it comes to which deodorant is best for teenage girls, there can be a lot to consider. As a parent, you might be concerned about personal care products and finding the right formula for your daughter’s skin. Whether she has sensitive underarms, or you just want her to have a caring first deodorant – we’re here to help. Take a look at a few of our best tips on choosing a gentle deodorant for girls.
Deodorant or antiperspirant deodorant for girls?
If you’re wondering what the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant deodorant is – you’re not alone. They may seem pretty similar, but they actually do different things: deodorant works to mask odor while antiperspirant deodorant helps to protect from sweat, too. The first step is working out what the right choice is for your daughter
Go for a 0% formula.
If it’s simply odor protection that you’re looking for, our 0% Aluminium Deodorant Cucumber & Green Tea might be able to help. Dove 0% deodorant offers 24 hours of odor protection, so she can feel fresh all day. And it’s enriched with Dove’s signature ¼ moisturizers, and formulated without alcohol – making it a gentler choice as a first teen deodorant
Look for a product without alcohol.
Alcohol is often used in antiperspirants, but it’s also been known to cause dryness. Enriched with our ¼ moisturizers, the gentle, alcohol-free formula of our Advanced Care Go Fresh Rejuvenate Antiperspirant Deodorant keeps delicate underarm skin feeling soft, smooth and cared for
Try a neutral fragrance.
If you’re looking for an antiperspirant deodorant for girls with delicate underarms, one with lower levels of fragrance could be the best choice. Our Advanced Care Sensitive AntiPerspirant Deodorant has a modified formula with less fragrance and it’s been specially created with sensitive skin in mind. It’s a gentle formula that works to be non-irritant on your daughter’s underarms
Find a balance between care and protection.
We know your daughter’s underarms need care as well as protection. That’s why our range of antiperspirant deodorants work to leave skin feeling beautifully soft – while also preventing sweat and body odor. With up to 48-hour protection and a caring formula, our range gives your daughter’s skin the perfect balance
It’s what works best for her.
When it comes to which deodorant is best for teenage girls, helping her feel comfortable is key. There’s no right or wrong choice, just whatever works for your daughter, and helps her feel confident
