FAQs – Deodorant for Kids, Boys and Girls
Is the Keep it Kind range an antiperspirant?
No. Keep It Kind is a range of deodorants, not antiperspirants. Antiperspirants hinder the function of sweat glands by blocking by the skin’s pores to prevent sweat from leaving the body, and by doing so prevent bodily toxins from being released. Our products neutralize the smell of sweat by preventing, odor causing bacteria while still allowing the skin to breathe and thus don’t interfering with the body’s natural cooling process of sweating.
Will Keep It Kind deodorant keep me dry?
Keep It Kind deodorant is designed to prevent odor forming bacteria from growing under the arms. As such, they do not contain any ingredients to actively stop sweating, only to prevent odor. However, unless kids are participating in sports or excessive exercise, significant sweating it is not customary in pre-teen and young teen every day activities.
How long will a single application of Keep It Kind deodorant last?
One application should prevent body odor throughout the day. Independent tests have proven that KIK provides 24 hour odor protection. However, the more active you are, the more likely you may need to re-apply.
I am using it but why is it not working?
Everyone’s body is different and many factors go into body odor such as diet and exercise. For some people, it may work immediately and for others they may take several days for your body to adjust to using our deodorants.
Do the products have an expiration date?
The roll-ons have a one-year shelf life once opened.
Are your products tested on animals?
NO…our deodorants have never and will never be tested on animals.
Is there a link between deodorants and breast cancer?
The aluminum and parabens in anti-perspirants and deodorants have been linked with breast cancer because it is believed that they can pass through the skin into the breast tissue. Although there has been no proven definite link between these chemicals and breast cancer, many people whom may be concerned have decided to switch to an aluminum and paraben free deodorant. Keep It Kind is both aluminum and paraben free.
