Before we mention the different brands of deodorants, let’s take a look at the ingredients that usually cause irritation or rashes.
Aluminum/Zinc: These ingredients are commonly used in antiperspirants/deodorants as active ingredients. They are the responsible of clogging sweat pores to prevent perspiration.
Parabens are widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. These compounds are primarily used for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties and can be found in shampoos, moisturizers, shaving gels, make-up and toothpaste.
Fragrances/Scent: Aside from certain ingredients used to produce the scents causing small skin rashes, having fragrance in a product is more of a personal choice. Some people prefer an unscented deodorant, so they can wear cologne on top of it.
Alcohol can dry your skin and cause irritation.
Even if the product is advertised as adequate for sensitive skin you should look at the ingredients before making the purchase.
