If you are plagued with underarm sweat and odor, you are probably looking for products that can help. Deodorants and anti perspirants are effective, but if you have sensitive skin, some of these products can be too harsh for you to use and cause skin irritation and pain. One solution is baby powder.

Baby powder is typically made with either talc or cornstarch, fragrance and other ingredients. Its primary purpose is to keep the diaper area dry to prevent diaper rash. Adults can use this product, too. In addition to using it on your underarms, you can also use it elsewhere on the body to absorb perspiration and to minimize friction that can cause chafing.

But Does Baby Powder Work?

The powder will absorb some of your underarm perspiration. It will also help absorb and mask odor, help keep your skin cool and smooth. It will not be as effective as an antiperspirant, because it lacks ingredients like aluminum, but that means it will also be gentler on your skin. If underarm sweat is a problem for you, try applying the powder after you shower. Be sure that your skin is completely dry. You may want to reapply later on in the day.

Anti Monkey Butt Anti Friction Powder contains natural ingredients, like calamine, that has long been known for its medicinal properties. If you are prone to chafing, this is the perfect powder because it absorbs wetness, minimizes friction and helps keep you dry.
