Best Deodorants for Women Over 50

By on July 8, 2020

It is wonderful feeling fresh and clean. Many women over 50 shower multiple times a day to overcome additional hot flashes caused by menopause. The sweating and body odors are what we want to avoid and why we use deodorants. What are the best deodorants for a woman over 50 to use for a confident, fresh scent when they are out and about at work or mingling with friends?

The key question in overcoming body odor, is what causes it and why do certain parts of the body create an odor? 


Sweat on its own does not smell bad. The bacteria found in dark moist places though will create a foul smell. Bacteria in your armpit digest the fats and proteins in our sweat. An unpleasant odor is produced by the chemical reaction. In order to remove the body odor, we need not reduce sweating with antiperspirants but need to neutralize the bacteria on our bodies.

An Antiperspirant contains active ingredients like aluminum and zirconium salts that form gel-like plugs in the sweat ducts.  This prevents sweat from ever reaching the skin’s surface. Blocking sweat ducts traps the sweat and toxins that need to be released within the body. 

A study published in the European Journal of Cancer, found “underarm shaving with antiperspirant/deodorant use may play a role in breast cancer.” That’s important since, according to research, only 5 to 10 percent of cancer is genetic. Stay away from products that have been proven to cause breast cancer.

Himalayan Salt

Himalayan salt as one of the purest salts available and boasts several health benefits. Pink Himalayan salt is chemically similar to table salt. It contains up to 98 percent sodium chloride. The rest of the salt consists of trace minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These give the salt its light pink tint.

Research has suggested that salt can reduce the risk of infection and kill harmful bacteria. Applying Himalayan Salt into areas of our body that bacteria tend to thrive, will neutralize those bacteria. Applied under our arms, the Himalayan salt neutralizes the bacteria that create the body odor. When added to your deodorant, the pure natural scent of the deodorant comes out and you continue to have a pleasant scent all day.

All-Natural Deodorant

Not only does the use of only natural ingredients in deodorants limit the skin issues and diseases possible from their non-natural counterparts, but they also provide many benefits themselves. Natural deodorants don’t block your skin’s pores and sweat ducts. An irritation-free armpit results in a closer (and longer-lasting) shave, and you can forget about worrying over your white t-shirt getting yellow pit stain.
