What Deodorant is Right for Me: Dr. Green Discusses with Redbook

Dr. Green was featured today in “The Definitive Guide to Deodorant You Need” where they cover various questions such as the difference between Antiperspirant and Deodorant, what works for each skin type, along with ingredients to look out for.  For example: “when choosing a deodorant, avoid ingredients such as fragrances, parabens, phthalates, propylene, sodium laurel, and sulfate as these ingredients can irritate the skin,” said Dr. Green. She also noted that one should look for alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and aluminum salts. “AHAs such as lactic acid and mandelic acid work to decrease the pH of the underarm area, making the area less hospitable to odor-producing bacteria.” Other ingredients to look for on the label of deodorants include baking soda and glycerin, since “[both] absorb excess moisture to reduce the feeling of sweat.”

Sensitive skin is a factor when looking, and results can be different from a deodorant that suits a dry skinned individual where they may want a moisturizing option too.  As for the difference between deodorant and anti-perspirant, the products labeled as deodorants are ideal for odor control, while antiperspirants are best for sweat reduction.  She also looks at various types of each such as roll on, or spray based brands.
