Deodorants & Antiperspirants for under your breasts are more common than you think. 

Many people seem appalled when they hear this, but trust me, anywhere you sweat can be lathered with these products. You just have to make sure that you are using the ones that are designed to be safe for your skin. 

Now people either use antiperspirants (containing aluminum) or deodorants (sweat-absorbing and aluminum-free). Remember that these two are different in how they are made and how they work. 

Let’s get into it. 

Which Is Better For Under Your Breasts: Antiperspirants or Deodorants

This depends on how much you sweat. If you sweat a lot, antiperspirants will be better for controlling that. But if you need more help with odor than sweating, then deodorants might be better for you. 

See, the thing is, the skin under your breasts chafe a lot and sometimes the friction can irritate the skin. Adding aluminum to your skin can further irritate your skin. On the other hand, deodorants with natural ingredients like essential oils or baking soda can also irritate your skin. 

So, ultimately, whether you choose to use an antiperspirant or a deodorant will depend on how much you sweat, and how sensitive the skin under your breast is.

Antiperspirants For Under Your Breasts

Antiperspirants under your breasts will function the same way it does under your arms. When applied, it will plug your sweat ducts and stop you from sweating. 

We already know that where there is sweat, there are usually bacteria and odor. So, in many cases, stopping sweat usually helps. 

However, keep in mind that when choosing an antiperspirant you should consider how sensitive your skin is and how much sweat protection you really need. 

Aluminum in antiperspirants comes in different compositions and concentrations. If you are not sure what strength or type works for you, start with the lowest possible strength that will be effective. 

To save you some of the trouble, I took the time to research and try out a few brands to see how skin as sensitive as mine under these boobs.

Best Antiperspirant Brands To Use

1- Dove Advanced Care Sensitive Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick

I particularly like this one because it also contains skincare ingredients that moisturize and soothe the skin. Dove says that they have designed this specifically for sensitive skin and it’s also alcohol-free and fragrance-free.

Its active ingredient is Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex GLY (15.2%) which is strong enough to be effective but not enough to irritate the skin.

2- Sweatblock Wipes

These are great for people who sweat more than average. I like them because they are wipes and not a lotion or gel stick that leaves your skin feeling sticky sometimes.

The only downside is that there are not many skincare ingredients in this formula. However, you can moisturize your skin after using this. It is great for use just after or in between showers. 

The main active ingredient is Aluminum Chloride (14%). Even though the percent concentration is lower, this composition of aluminum is more efficient.

While these two are my favorites, you can technically use any underarm antiperspirant under your breasts as well, just pay attention to the ingredients. The skin under your arms is as sensitive or even more so than the skin under your breasts. Both areas chafe, get hot, and get sweaty. 

However, always do a patch test before spreading the antiperspirant all over under your boobs.

Side Effects 

Like all skincare products, especially those with active ingredients, the main side effects to expect are irritation and allergic reactions. 

Aluminum is one of those ingredients that irritate sensitive skin. So, antiperspirants that contain high concentrations of aluminum can be tricky. You also have to use these products properly. Follow the directions well. 

Also, if you are allergic to aluminum, you should not use antiperspirants that contain aluminum. If you are unsure about whether you are allergic or not, then I recommend doing a patch test to be safe.

Now these are much more common. Deodorants – especially DIYs and “natural” deodorants are a trend at the moment. And they do make a difference. 

But, they work differently from antiperspirants. Instead of stopping sweat, they absorb sweat and deodorize. They also do not contain aluminum and other sweat-affecting active ingredients.

Now, DIYs are great. But if you’re a lazy babe like me, you’ll really appreciate how easy it is to get underboob deodorants with just a click or a swipe of your card. 

Here are a few great deodorants for under your breasts that I have found:

1- Carpe Sweat Absorbing Breast Lotion

This formula was designed specifically for the skin of your breast and chest areas. It contains loads of skincare ingredients but it also contains tapioca starch, which absorbs sweat and moisture.

The lotion is quick-drying and has a non-greasy finish which is pretty comfortable to wear. It has a slight scent so it is not overpowering but it’s pleasant.

If you have strong odor problems, this might not be scented enough for you. But keep in mind that as bacteria and sweat lesen on your skin over time, so does odor.

2- Sweatblock Lady Parts Powder Deodorant Lotion

This formula goes on as a spreadable lotion for great coverage and then it dries down to a silky powder finish! However, this only works for mild moisture. If you sweat a lot, they will not do that much for you.

But it does a great job of keeping you odor-free and unsticky. It contains tapioca starch, kaolin clay and arrowroot powder, all of which absorb sweat wonderfully. I was pleasantly surprised at how dry this kept me (but I do not sweat loads).

3- Megababe Sweat Absorbing Bust Dust 

Deodorants do not always have to be creamy. They can also be powders! This one, in particular, is my favorite for days that are hot, when you don’t want anything slick on your skin. It’s also great for chaffing.

It contains lavender for a light, fresh scent, and chamomile and aloe for soothing the skin. But the magic ingredient is cornstarch which absorbs sweat and keeps you dry.

Best DIY Deodorants for Under the Breast

Here are a few DIY deodorants that are great for your underboobs:

1- Zinc Oxide Deodorant

You might recognize the name zinc oxide from your sunscreens. It’s a white powder that is anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial and also soothes the skin.

If you decide to try this recipe, be sure to get the non-nano zinc oxide to avoid clogging your pores. You will also need to wear a mask to avoid breathing the zinc oxide particles in (they are very fine and light). 

Ingredients:

  •     40% Coconut oil: 28 g/0.98 oz
  •     30% Arrowroot powder: 21 g/0.74 oz
  •     22% Kaolin clay 15.4 g/0.54 oz
  •     5% Zinc oxide 3.5 g/0.12 oz
  •     2% Beeswax 1.4 g/0.05 oz
  •     1% Geranium essential oil 

Directions:

  • Add your coconut oil to a bowl and then add the zinc oxide. 
  • Mix and grind the two together using a spatula or spoon until all the clumps are gone (if it remains clumpy, it will be too textured for your skin). 
  • Once the zinc oxide and coconut oil form a smooth paste, add the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Place the bowl in a hot water bath and let the ingredients all melt together for about 10 minutes. Stir and mix to make sure they are melting properly. 
  • Remove the bowl from the hot water and add your essential oils. Mix well. 
  • Let the mixture cool for about 20 minutes and then give it a final mix with a fork or a whisk. 
  • Spoon the cream into your container and let it set. 
  • If it becomes too solid, do not worry, it melts easily when it comes into contact with your skin. However, if you want it to be creamier, you can add more beeswax or more coconut oil. 

This recipe will give you a non-greasy, sweat-absorbing and soothing deodorant that is great for use under your arms as well as under your boobs. A little goes a long way and it can be reapplied as needed. 

2- The Simplest Thing Deodorant

I immediately liked this recipe because it is super simple and has great ingredients for skincare. However, this is more suitable for people who do not sweat that much (so more for odor control). 

Ingredients:

  • Coconut Oil
  • Shea Butter
  • Beeswax
  • Vitamin E
  • Arrowroot Powder
  • Essential Oils 

Directions:

  1. Add your coconut oil, shea butter, beeswax, and vitamin E to a double boiler (or your bowl in a hot water bath).
  2. Once the ingredients have almost melted, remove your bowl from the heat and add the arrowroot powder and essential oils.
  3. Allow the mixture to cool but stir occasionally.
  4. When your deodorant is the consistency of a thick salad dressing, pour it into your empty deodorant container or glass jar with a lid.
  5. Once fully cooled, close up your container and use it as needed.

Potential Side Effects

As I always say, it’s normal to anticipate certain side effects with any product that you put on your skin. The usual culprits are irritation and allergic reactions. 

Always do a patch test before putting products all over your skin. 

Also, always check your ingredient lists to make sure that you are not known to be sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients used in the products. 

Disclaimer

While I have tried these products and DIY recipes, these reviews are based on my experience and those of others through conversation and research. 

Skin is different (and behaves differently) for everyone. So keep in mind that our experiences may not be the same. These products and recipes might work better for me than for you or vice versa. 

But, as someone with sensitive skin, I feel like these are the ones most suitable for people with skin like mine (sensitive) and less sensitive skin. 

I hope this helps!
