10 Natural Deodorants for Kids

Smelly armpits, a pre-signal of puberty, are to be expected in kids from around eight to ten years old but can occur even earlier than that. Try entering a Year 4 primary school classroom at the end of the day and you’ll know that little girls and boys don’t smell of shampoo and apples forever!

In fact, it was a friend’s plea for make-up artist Tania Rodney to create a deodorant for her daughter, that was the catalyst for creating the entire Platinum Junior Design Award winningDandydill Way toiletries range..

My God daughter’s mother told me I HAD to do a deodorant for children and my first thought was that it was a ridiculous notion (my daughter was only 5 at the time) but research showed that children have a hormone surge at around 9yrs and this can affect their body odour and cause them to feel self conscious...

Scrubbington’s First Deodorant is another Junior favourite that was born out of necessity when brand co-founder Emma Cranstoun found she needed a natural first deodorant for her son when he turned nine.

Finding completely natural deodorants is a little easier these days, but it’s still hard to find products that are absolutely natural so we’ve brought together a list of our favourite and most effective but gentle deodorants to help keep kids’ niffs and bay without irritating their delicate skin or dosing them with harsh chemicals. These clever formulations will help kids feel more confident and should keep cuddle time a sweet smelling affair  – even after PE!

Ooh… a deodorant that comes in an eco-friendly tin! How great is that? We love these little pots that are super portable and look super cute. The tins come with a tiny bamboo spatula for application if you don’t want to use your fingers and the formula contains Coconut Oil with Arrowroot Powder, Shea Butter, Kaolin Clay and Vitamin E for efficient and effective 24-hour protection. These 4 in 1 deodorant cream will deodorise, soothe, detoxify & nourish young skin. We also adore the Sweet Clementine version.
