My oldest officially became a teen this year. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time sneaks up on you. It seems like just yesterday I was worried about BPA in his baby bottles and now I’m worrying about aluminum and chemicals in his deodorant. I just want my kids to be healthy and happy! Luckily there are options out there, you just have to know where to find them!
We recently discovered Starling Skincare Solutions which offers clean options for a variety of skincare needs including deodorant! They are gentle, safe and non-irritating. Made without aluminum or synthetic fragrances, the whole family can be safely deodorized! The kids formulas are available in three varieties: Force Field, Birthday Cake and Birthday Cake Sensitive.
Force Field is perfect for my son with hints of orange, fir and vanilla. It’s a clean, fresh scent. The Birthday Cake variety is sweeter and more suited for my girls. I’ll be honest, even though these are aimed towards kids, I couldn’t resist trying it myself! Starling Deodorants keep underarm skin smooth, reduce wetness, neutralize odor and contain powerful, natural antimicrobial ingredients that support the lymphatic system and increase circulation. What’s not to like about that?!
I’ve already been using natural deodorants for awhile so my body is already accustomed to them. There is often a transition period if you are switching deodorants to allow your body to acclimate to them. Baking soda can be irritating to some people. At first this was the case for me, especially after shaving my armpits but after a week or two I didn’t have any problems. The sensitive skin formula doesn’t contain baking soda so you always have the option of going that route if the original formula doesn’t work well for you.
The fragrances and packaging make using deodorant a little more “fun” for my tweens and teen, encouraging better hygiene. It’s best to get an early start on this and get them using deodorant before they actually need it! Trust me. You’ll thank me later. I learned the hard way but won’t make that mistake again!
I love that Starling Deodorants are aluminum-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free and talc-free since studies have shown that these ingredients can be harmful. If you have any allergies including nuts, gluten, soy, or dairy, Starling Deodorant is a great choice since they also do not contain these ingredients.
Starling is a women owned business which was born out of a need for their own special skincare needs. Their products are made in small batches with clean, plant-based, organic ingredients. They are also cruelty free and never tested on animals. You can find out more about Starling Kids Deodorant at www.buystarling.com.
