Deodorants for men

Deodorants have become an essential part of a man's personal hygiene routine. They help control body odor, reduce sweat and keep you fresh and confident all day long.

However, choosing the right deodorant can be a daunting task, especially with so many options available on the market.

In this article, we'll walk you through the different types of men's deodorants and help you choose the best one for your needs.

Natural deodorant for men

Types of deodorants

antiperspirant deodorant

This type of deodorant contains aluminum compounds that prevent sweating by blocking sweat glands. From our point of view, this is not healthy , since our body eliminates toxins through sweating.
If we block the sweat glands, we prevent our skin from sweating, which can irritate the skin inside, causing swallows , the famous lumps in the armpits that cause pain and are very uncomfortable.

Deodorant spray

These deodorants come in spray aerosol cans and are applied directly to the skin. They contain a large amount of chemical components that are unwanted by us and are not to our liking.
They also contain synthetic chemical agents, called aromatic amines, which we do not recommend since there are studies that relate them to carcinogenic processes.

Stick deodorant

Deodorant sticks come in solid form and are applied directly to the skin. They contain wax and butter and this makes them very greasy , leaving yellow stains on white clothing, or white stains on black clothing, or also darkening the color of the clothing in the armpit area, which is quite ugly and It costs a lot to remove.

Therefore, we do not recommend this option either .

Deodorant cream

Deodorant creams are similar to sticks, but come in cream form. They are applied by spreading the cream with your fingers in the armpit until it is absorbed, so they are not very practical to use .

In the same way as stick deodorants, cream deodorants can be very greasy , and when mixed with sweat, they can end up creating stains on clothing .

natural deodorant

Natural deodorants like those in our Sidekick range are a popular choice among men as they do not contain harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances.

They are formulated with 100% natural ingredients such as plant extracts, baking soda and essential oils, which help neutralize the bacteria that cause bad odor.

The difference between a conventional antiperspirant deodorant and a natural antibacterial deodorant like ours is that our natural deodorant allows the skin to perspire to avoid swallows and lumps in the armpits, but it does not allow the bacteria that cause the disease to reproduce. smell.

For us they are the best option, since, in our case, being deodorants in roll-on format , they are very easy to apply and ideal for men who prefer a more natural and ecological option .

With our Sidekick natural deodorants , you will keep your armpits odor-free, even up to 48 - 72 hours, depending on your body hygiene routine and physical activity.

Our Sidekick deodorants are Bio + Vegan certified. They are ideal for men with sensitive skin, especially our unscented Sidekick .

Deodorant for sensitive skin

There's nothing worse than feeling like all the deodorants are irritating you. This is likely because most of the deodorants that we find on the market contain aluminum that blocks sweat glands and can end up irritating your skin, or they contain alcohol, which is still a very aggressive ingredient for our skin, especially if we use it. daily.

If you have sensitive skin, it is vital that you use a natural deodorant that is formulated without petroleum derivatives such as our aluminum-free and alcohol-free Sidekick , two undesirable agents for any deodorant for sensitive skin .

Our Sidekick are natural and ecological deodorants, and if you have sensitive skin , our recommendation is that you start using them in moderation, because they are also very powerful deodorants and a very small amount is more than enough.

You can even apply the roll-on on a point in the armpit but without moving it and then spread that small amount of deodorant with a gentle massage until it is absorbed. In the case of our Sidekick, this small amount is enough and is perfect for sensitive skin.

Our deodorants are 90 ml, almost twice the size of conventional 50 ml deodorants. It lasts several months, making it a much more economical option than most conventional deodorants.

And needless to say, they contain no harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances.

Deodorant for shaved armpits

If you shave or shave your armpits frequently, our recommendation is that you do not apply deodorant right after shaving, as this can irritate your skin.

If you are a user of our Sidekick deodorants and you shave your armpits from time to time, our recommendation is that you do not apply the deodorant right after, since they are very powerful deodorants, and if you have applied the deodorant a few hours before shaving, then Your level of protection will be high and it will not be necessary to apply deodorant again until 24-48 hours after waxing or shaving.

48 hour deodorant

It is difficult to find powerful deodorants for men who have a very strong odor and who need to feel confident all day or even for 48 hours.

Normally the options on the 48-hour deodorant market are antiperspirant formulas, which, as we have already mentioned above, are not at all healthy for our armpits, and can end up irritating us, or contain very aggressive and unhealthy ingredients for our body.

It has taken us many years of research but we have finally achieved a natural and healthy deodorant with an effectiveness of 48 hours .

Our Sidekick deodorants are powerful antibacterials that inhibit the proliferation of odor-causing bacteria.

Deodorants that do not stain clothes

The current formula of Sidekick deodorants is especially for men who sweat excessively and want to avoid embarrassing sweat stains on their clothes.

Its roll-on texture does not contain any wax or butter, which are usually responsible for stains on clothing.

They also do not contain any silicone, paraffin, or any other petroleum-derived oil that can stain clothing, making these stains very difficult to remove.

As we mentioned above, we recommend using a small amount of deodorant at first, bringing the roll-on up to your armpit and spreading with your hand only the amount that has touched the skin, massaging gently until it is absorbed.

Deodorant for men with strong smell

If you are a man who gives off a strong odor when sweating, then it is vital to use an appropriate deodorant that will keep you protected throughout the day so that you feel safe, especially if you do sports.

When doing sports or physical work, the sweat glands increase their activity, and sweat accumulates in the armpit area, which, being an area with a lot of friction and little ventilation, quickly reproduces the bacteria that cause bad odor. .
Our Sidekick deodorants will not only keep you protected naturally thanks to their powerful formula, but they are also deodorizing. And what does that mean? We tell you about it below.

Difference between a deodorant and a deodorizer

The deodorant will keep you protected against the appearance of bad odor caused by bacteria that reproduce with sweat.

The deodorizer is also capable of neutralizing and eliminating the odor that has already appeared in the armpit. This is ideal for athletes or men who do intensive physical work, and at some point need to eliminate the bad smell of sweat quickly when they do not have a shower at hand.

Obviously, it goes without saying that the ideal would always be to always shower or wash your armpits before applying deodorant. But it may be the case that for work or sports reasons, we feel uncomfortable with our sudden odor and need to deodorize quickly.

In this case, our Sidekick deodorants are ideal because their natural formula is capable of eliminating bad odor quickly. In addition, they are distinguished from aerosols because aerosols impregnate your skin with a new smell, but without completely eliminating the smell of sweat, the end result being quite unpleasant.

However, our ecological Sidekick deodorants , thanks to their baking soda content, are capable of eliminating bad odor instantly and keeping you protected naturally.

Deodorants that smell the best

If you are looking for a deodorant that smells delicious, then you have come to the best place. Our Sidekick natural deodorant collection contains a selection of 6 deodorants each with a different fragrance.

As we have already mentioned above, we do not use synthetic perfumes in our deodorants. We use essential oils, whose organoleptic characteristics are much richer and more complete than those of any synthetic fragrance, since essential oils contain a greater amount of olfactory molecules.

The 6 amazing fragrances our Sidekick deodorants are available in are:

- Pure Mint : it is a super refreshing pure mint fragrance. It is ideal for those men with low tolerance for heat, since mint is a great refresher.

- Fresh Citrus : it is another very refreshing fragrance, but with a very balanced citrus touch. It is neither acidic nor sweet. It is a citrus that gives us a feeling of deep cleanliness.

- Wild Berries : this fragrance is ideal for lovers of sweet perfumes. It is a subtle fragrance based on extracts of different red fruits.

- Lotus Flower : the Lotus or lotus flower fragrance is very popular and perhaps the most balanced of all. It provides an incredible clean feeling and its natural perfume is very subtle.

- Vibrant lavender : if you love more floral scents, this vibrant lavender deodorant is for you. Its fragrance based on 100% pure lavender essential oil will transport you directly to the lavender fields of French Provence. It's quite an experience.

72 hour deodorant

Can a natural deodorant last 72 hours?

After years of research, we have achieved a deodorant with a powerful natural formula , which depending on the circumstances, can last up to 72 hours .

And what does it depend on? Well, it depends on the physical activity you do, how often you shower, the ambient temperature or time of year you are in, and naturally, it also depends on your body's predisposition to sweat more or less.

In any case, we could say that under normal circumstances (outside of the very hot season) and with normal physical activity, and adequate hygiene (daily showering), the effectiveness of our Sidekick roll-on deodorants can be up to 72 hours , although it obviously depends a lot on the degree of sweating of each person.

Alcohol-free men's deodorant

Alcohol is a very aggressive ingredient for our skin. At Homo Naturals men's cosmetics , alcohol belongs to our list of unwanted ingredients, whether for our facial care or body care line for men, and obviously we do not use it in our deodorants either.

While it is true that alcohol kills the bacteria that cause bad odor in your armpits, alcohol also destroys the hydrolipid mantle of your skin, or more simply put, alcohol destroys the natural protective barrier of your skin , making your skin more prone to becoming unbalanced, red and losing its defenses that keep it healthy.

That's why we always recommend using a natural deodorant without alcohol .

Ecological deodorant

An ecological deodorant is one that is formulated without petroleum derivatives such as paraffins, silicones, or other controversial ingredients such as ethoxylated emulsifiers, or preservatives such as parabens, triclosan, phenoxyethanol.

The ecological deodorant also does not contain synthetic perfumes. The fragrances it contains are based on essential oils, which are powerful plant extracts with active ingredients that are very interesting for our skin.

Our eco-friendly Sidekick deodorants are made with only premium plant extracts, baking soda, and essential oils.

Vegan deodorant

A vegan deodorant is one that does not contain any ingredients of animal origin, not just beeswax. Our Sidekick vegan deodorants are certified BIO + VEGAN and do not contain any ingredients of animal origin.
