Carpe Underarm Clinical strength

Clinical Strength

Carpe Underarm Antiperspirant and Deodorant offers clinical strength.

Formulated using potent active components (including aluminum sesquichlorohydrate at 15%) and supporting ingredients ranging from sweat-absorbing powders to natural eucalyptus oil, this product solves the excessive sweating issue unlike any deodorant. Aside from preventing underarm sweat, the deodorant also manages the hyperhidrosis symptoms. Even its pea-sized amount will allow you to reduce sweating without causing any side effects.

Plus, thanks to the moisturizing ingredients, the lotion will be soothing the skin and, owing to its quick-drying properties, avoiding greasiness. Once applied, the eucalyptus scent starts fading into the background, providing this mild yet noticeable fresh fragrance that does not become overbearing.

Besides the formula and the scent, what separates this product from most deodorants is the plate applicator that takes less time and effort to apply the lotion than standard sticks. The issue here is that, and maybe it is more about the formula, but the product seldom lasts as long as most deodorants.

Even taking that into account though, Carpe Underarm Antiperspirant and Deodorant is the most convenient and effective product within this lineup.

Native Natural

The Safest Formula

Native Deodorant does not discriminate and will suit men and women alike. Before that though, what makes this product so universal and versatile is the vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free formula, produced without using talc, aluminum, parabens, and phthalates, so you're not supporting unethical practices and do not have to worry about the product causing itchiness, redness, and irritations. Furthermore, featuring sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, the deodorant also neutralizes odor-causing bacteria.

Still, the formula could use some improvement because, as it is, the deodorant feels somewhat sticky. On the upside, because the lotion has been formulated without aluminum, you will not be staining clothes.

The scent has always been the company's strongest point and this product fits the same mold. You can choose between coconut and vanilla, cucumber and mint, citrus and herbal musk, sweet almond and honey, and more. From the application perspective, the deodorant is solid, goes on easy, and always lasts at least 24 hours.

In other words, when you want to make sure that you're purchasing the safest product that also smells nice, you cannot go wrong with this natural deodorant for women and its effective formula that hasn't been tested on animals.

Super Natural Goods Aluminum-Free

Almost Supernatural

Super Natural Goods Underarmed is not necessarily supernatural but we can say that the product works much better than most natural deodorants. Made from 100% organic ingredients, this product is as good at detoxing the body, nourishing the skin, and the reversing the damage caused by chemicals as its non-organic counterparts.

Unlike these counterparts though, the deodorant has been formulated without zirconium, chlorohydrate, aluminum, phthalates, SLS, triclosan, parabens, and without adding synthetic fragrances. Also unlike big-brand antiperspirants, the product will not be clogging pores. That might be why the stick does not glide on the skin as easily as most deodorants but we're willing to make that trade-off.

Once applied, the lotion becomes invisible from the get-go, without staining clothes and leaving noticeable traces behind. Adding to the product's advantages, the formula is also pH-balanced, which means that sensitive skin will have no issues with this deodorant (and vice versa).

All things considered, including the affordable price, the mild yet pleasant scent, and the volume measuring 2.63 fluid ounces, this is an easy product to recommend even without knowing the individual's preferences and medical history.

M3 Naturals Aluminum Free with Magnesium

Adding Magnesium

M3 Naturals Magnesium Deodorant, to everyone's surprise, adds magnesium hydroxide in its composition. Because the mineral's benefits include anti-inflammatory properties, reducing insulin resistance, and minimizing aching, the product will do more than prevent excess sweating, though this is not where the deodorant trails behind too. Made without toxins, its formula is aluminum-, gluten-, paraben-, and alcohol-free, so you can use the product without worrying about any adverse effects.

The deodorant is also formulated without using synthetic fragrances, relying upon green tea and aloe vera extracts to not only minimize redness and irritations that come from shaving/depilation but also to provide the sweet, organic scent. Unfortunately, probably because these ingredients are not that potent, the scent goes away almost immediately.

The deodorant's effects will not be going away anytime soon though, lasting at least 24 hours after application. Plus, the neutral scent also makes the product unisex, fitting men and women alike.

To sum this up, M3 Naturals Magnesium Deodorant will allow you to go out projecting confidence knowing that you'll be smelling good and that pit stains will not be rearing their ugly head.

Certain Dri Prescription Strength Clinical

Prescription Strength Without Prescriptions

We're certain that Certain Dri belongs among the most long-lasting deodorants. Sure, contributing 12% aluminum chloride, we're not saying that the product will not sometimes stain fragile garments. However, we're also saying that its effects will last ~72 hours (three days, you read that right).

First and foremost, this deodorant has been formulated to accommodate people suffering from hyperhidrosis, containing strong active ingredients that can irritate the skin when you apply excessive amounts. Second, unlike standard deodorants, this one ought to be applied sparingly before going to bed onto dry underarms. We do not recommend using this product on broken and irritated skin and skin that you have just shaved. We also do not recommend applying the deodorant onto wet skin.

As long as you follow these guidelines, you'll remain fresh and clean for three days without reapplying the product. What's more, thanks to the roll-on applicator, you can easily apply the lotion evenly, so even despite its 12% aluminum chloride composition, the deodorant will seldom stain clothes.

Again, those who are suffering from hyperhidrosis cannot go wrong with this product. Setting these people aside, provided you follow the instructions, the deodorant will not leave you disappointed too.

What Are Deodorants for Women?

Did you know that women have more sweat glands than men? Or have you ever noticed that sweat from the heat, from exercise and from stress smells differently? Believe it or not, but the sweat is nearly odorless by nature. When we perspire, body bacteria digest the fats and proteins in your sweat. As a result, you get the annoying smell or, even worse, itchy armpits from irritation. Luckily, a good deodorant can stop that all. It contains some powerful antibacterial agents and keeps you from stinking by killing odor-causing bacteria. Yet, it doesn't actually stop the sweating process.

Being technically a subtype of deodorant, an antiperspirant works a bit differently. The aluminum compounds in its formula effectively stop up the eccrine sweat glands. That said, antiperspirants don't completely stop sweat glands from doing their business - the FDA requires that any "all-day protection" antiperspirant cut back on wetness only by 20%, and "extra strength" products - by 30%.

Simply put, while the purpose of deodorant is to keep body odor under control, antiperspirants are intended to deal with the cause of sweat and prevent your body from wetness. So, if you solely want to reduce underarm odor, deodorant is the right product for you. But if you want to keep wet patches under your arms at bay, antiperspirants are probably the best choice for you.

In case you have very sensitive skin and can't tolerate aluminum compounds or some chemicals, you may be interested in crystal deodorants. They are made of natural ingredients and pose less risk of allergies.
