Natural Confidence: Everything You Need to Know about Natural Cream Deodorants for Kids, Tweens and Teens

Natural confidence for your kids.

When it comes to personal care products, we're proud to see the shift toward natural alternatives that prioritize health without compromising on effectiveness.

Every parent wants to support their child's well-being and one area that can be tricky is approaching personal hygiene with your kids. In this blog, we're diving deep and exploring the myriad benefits of natural cream deodorants for kids, tweens and teens. We'll explore the factors that contribute to body odour, health advantages to using natural deodorants, the boost in confidence for teens and why Neitra's deodorant stands out as a winner being both beneficial and economical.

Understanding the Need for Deodorants

As kids enter puberty, their bodies undergo significant changes, including the development of sweat glands. Combine that with the natural surge in hormonal activity and this can lead to increased body odour - which is something we all want to avoid.

Did you know that "stress" can also cause body odour?

As an adult, you probably know first hand about "stress sweats" - think of how your body reacts during a job interview or when the family comes to your house for the holidays. The same thing can happen to kids - we've had parents use our deodorant on their little ones as young as 6 years old because starting school caused so much stress.

Traditional deodorants and antiperspirants often contain a "cocktail of chemicals", including aluminum, parabens and synthetic fragrances. Not only are these ingredients bad for your health, they can be harsh on your skin no matter how "grown up" you are - so there's even more reason to avoid them on young, developing skin.

Understanding Factors Contributing to Body Odour

  1. Sweat and Bacteria Interaction: Body odour is primarily a result of the interaction between sweat and bacteria on the skin's surface. Believe it or not, sweat itself is odourless, but when it comes into contact with bacteria, especially in areas with a high concentration of apocrine glands (such as the underarms), it can produce an unpleasant smell.

  2. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal changes during puberty play a significant role in the development of body odour. Increased hormonal activity stimulates the apocrine glands, leading to the production of a type of sweat that is rich in proteins. When this sweat interacts with bacteria, it produces body odour.

  3. Diet and Lifestyle: Diet and lifestyle choices can also influence body odour. Certain foods and spices, such as garlic, onions and curry, can contribute to the smell of sweat. Additionally, poor hygiene practices and the use of harsh chemical-based deodorants can actually exacerbate body odour concerns.

Health Benefits of Natural Cream Deodorants

  1. Chemical-Free Formulation: Neitra's natural cream deodorants are crafted with a commitment to purity. Free from aluminum, parabens, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, our deodorants provide a chemical-free alternative that is gentle and effective - especially on the sensitive skin of kids, tweens and teens.

  2. Skin-Friendly Ingredients: The natural ingredients used in our deodorants were carefully selected for their skin-friendly properties. Ingredients like organic coconut oil, organic shea butter and 100% pure essential oils not only provide effective odor control but also nourish and moisturize the skin, leaving it soft, supple and clean.

  3. Healthy Ingredient Formulation: Sensitivity is a common concern especially in younger individuals. Our natural cream deodorants include arrowroot powder which reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions. This ensures a comfortable and safe experience for kids and teens and allows them to be confident in the products they're using on their bodies!

  4. Simple Application: Another benefit of using our cream deodorant is how it allows kids to be in touch with and get comfortable with their bodies. And a little goes a long way - usually a pea size amount will provide all day protection. Neitra's cream deodorant goes on smooth and isn't as irritable to young skin as a deodorant stick application can be.

Boosting Confidence Through Odour Control

  1. Confidence During Puberty: Puberty is a challenging time for tweens and teens with many physical and emotional changes. Body odour can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness. Neitra's deodorants empower your child by providing effective odour control, promoting a sense of confidence and self-assurance during this transitional period.

  2. Long-Lasting Odour Protection: Our unique formulation of offers long-lasting odour protection, keeping tweens and teens feeling fresh throughout the day. This extended protection contributes to a more confident and worry-free experience, allowing them to focus on their studies and social interactions.

  3. Aromatherapy Benefits: Using 100% pure essential oils in our deodorants not only provides a pleasant smell, but also offers aromatherapy benefits. Scents like lavender and citrus can have mood enhancing effects, promoting a positive mindset and emotional well-being. The most popular scents for tweens and teens are: Lavender & Geranium, Petitgrain & Bergamot, Tea Tree & Peppermint and our "citrus powerhouse" - Lemon, Lime & Grapefruit.

Natural antimicrobial properties in ingredients like essential oils combat bacteria, addressing the root cause of body odour while maintaining a balance in the skin's microbiome.

  2. Moisturizing and Nourishing: The combination of coconut oil, shea butter, are actually nourishing ingredients and ensure that the skin remains moisturized and healthy. This dual action of odour control and skin nourishment sets our deodorant apart from conventional products.

  3. Economical and Eco-Friendly: A jar of our deodorant usually lasts between 4 - 6 months so it's very economical. We're committed to reducing our environmental impact and package our deodorant in glass jars because they're the most recyclable packaging. (And our local customers can even join our "Refill Program" too!) So, using Neitra deodorant is not only a wise choice for your child's well-being, but it benefits your wallet and the environment!
