Armpit sweat, hair, and odor…most of us have it! However, itchy rashes can cause concern and be very uncomfortable.

Sometimes the deodorant and/or antiperspirant you are using may cause contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis is a condition in which the skin becomes red, sore, itchy, bumpy, or inflamed after direct contact with a substance.

Switching up deodorants trying to find one that won’t result in a rash can be time-consuming and frustrating. “hypoallergenic” and “natural” labels can be misleading and often contain common allergens such as fragrance and lanolin.

The only way to find out what you are allergic to is through patch testing done by a dermatologist. However, some don’t have access to this kind of testing so a good place to start is by browsing through SkinSAFE to find products rated as “Top Free”. This means that they are free of the top common allergens according to scientific research from the Mayo Clinic.

We have compiled a list of “Top Allergy-Free” deodorants/antiperspirants that have also been favorited many times by our SkinSAFE users!
