We use deodorant every day, so you want to make sure that the one you’ve chosen contains healthy ingredients that won’t harm or irritate your skin. But sometimes finding the right deodorant can be tough, especially if you’re shopping in a drugstore that’s filled with a vast variety of brands. We found the one deodorant that dermatologists say we should all start using. It’s natural, affordable and perfect for every underarm!

So, why is it so important for your deodorant to be made with natural ingredients? Dr. Jessica Weiser, MD, of New York Dermatology Group, says its because your underarm area is extremely sensitive and prone to irritation if exposed to harsh products. "Above all, underarms should be treated gently, as the skin in that area is very sensitive and easily irritated," Dr. Weiser tells Refinery29

 

She also suggests avoiding deodorants that are alcohol-based as they can cause your hair follicles to build up, which then leads to ingrown hairs that make your underarm area darken overtime. When this occurs, Dr. Weiser says you should use deodorants that are designed to sooth irritation to prevent further discoloration -- which you can find in Tom's deodorant sticks. The brand uses organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice to soothe your underarms and helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil to moisturize them!
