This is a guest post by Amina with the best unisex deodorants for sensitive skin.
The Best Unisex Deodorants for Sensitive Skin
Deodorants are probably one of the most important products that we use daily and taking the time to explore which deodorants work is essential. Selecting one can also be very personal: do you choose by the scent, by the strength, by the ingredients?
Regarding ingredients, there’s always the concern about which ingredients are healthy for the skin or what amount we should be applying daily. Which begs another question: Can men and women use the same deodorant if men sweat more?
It turns out we can. In fact, the only difference in deodorants geared towards men versus those geared towards women is the packaging and the scents. So if you’re willing to chuck gender differences and need a gentle unisex deodorant, here are some excellent choices.
Almay Sensitive Skin Clear Gel
According to specialized review site TodayBestReviews.com, this is the best deodorant for sensitive armpits. It’s hypoallergenic as well as dermatologist and allergy tested. The clear gel comes in stick form and is available in a scented and unscented version. You’ll experience no odor, no perspiration, and no irritation.
DermaDoctor Total Nonscents Ultra-Gentle Brightening Antiperspirant
If you’re prone to eczema or dermatitis, try DermaDoctor’s Ultra-Gentle antiperspirant. DermaDoctor’s product offers a water-based formula that won’t cause burning, itching, or stinging. Simply roll it on to protect against wetness and odor.
Dove Antiperspirant Deodorant, Sensitive Skin
Alcohol can contribute to skin irritation, so Dove has created a deodorant that is alcohol free. It comes unscented or in a powder fresh scent, and it has Dove’s moisturizers to help moisturize your underarms. The deodorant is clear, which means no white streaks on your clothing.
Vichy 24-Hour Cream Deodorant for Sensitive Skin
Most deodorants are available as sticks, roll-ons, or sprays. Vichy, a French company, offers a non-greasy cream to spread under your armpits. The deodorant is ideal if you find your skin constantly irritated from shaving or hair removal. It is paraben free, alcohol free, and has been allergen tested. Use a dime size amount for best results.
Malin and Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant
If you’re seeking deodorants that come from only natural products, then Malin and Goetz Eucalyptus deodorant is an excellent choice. It is alcohol free and aluminum free, which means no yellow stains on your white t-shirts from aluminum residue. It is made with Eucalyptus extract and citronellyl to give you a natural, refreshing scent, and it is especially designed for those with skin prone to rashes. If you like the smell of Eucalyptus, try this one.

Tea Tree oil has incredible benefits for the skin. Use it on your feet and it prevents athlete’s foot. Use it on your skin and it repels some insects. The Tea Tree stick deodorant offers an aluminum-free, alcohol-free, and gluten-free product. If you have chemical sensitivities and suffer from skin rashes, Tea Tree deodorant could be worth trying.
