The Best Deodorant for Women who Sweat a Lot - Prevent Body Odor

Updated on September 17, 2014

Are you a Woman who Sweats a Lot?

Everybody sweats, or perspires, but sometimes it seems excessive. Especially if you're just lounging around and not engaging in strenuous activity. And when you do get a little exercise, you find that you're sweating buckets!

Excessive perspiration can be annoying, uncomfortable, and downright embarrassing. Especially when it causes a very unpleasant bodily odor. As far as I'm concerned... when there's sweat, there's always the possibility of an odor. And for me, that odor is not pleasant.

Clinical and Prescription Strength Protection

Clinical and Prescription Strength Protection

Many over the counter prescription strength or clinical strength antiperspirant/deodorant products are made especially for women. Just about every manufacturer of deodorant has a clinical strength variety.

What distinguishes these clinical type deodorants from the average deodorant is that they are more expensive and usually contain Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly 20%. Many basic deodorants also contain this ingredient but in lesser concentration.

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant/Antiperspirant

One of my favorite brands of deodorant is Secret Clinical Strength. It's a solid stick type deodorant and it's available in six different formulas with different fragrances:

Original

Sensitive Skin

Sport

Waterproof

Fresh Water Orchid Scent

Ooh-La-La Lavender

Active Ingredients: Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly (20%)

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant/Antiperspirant also has a money back guarantee if you're not satisfied with the product.

Wetness and Odor Protection

When using a clinical strength or prescription strength antiperspirant/deodorant it's important to follow the manufacturer's directions.

Most of these products have specific instructions in order to achieve a reduction in wetness and odor. Applying the product at bedtime is common.

Tip! Be sure to check out the manufacturer's websites for special offers! Some have loyalty programs (Secret) and others occasionally have coupons available.

      I would recommend Lavilin. I sweat quite a bit, especially in the summer, but given the risks of using standard deodorants using an all-natural product is more important. I haven't really experimented with many brands, but Lavilin was highly recommended to me by several people, including my dermatologist. I also recommend it!

      Not to knock your other antiperspirant recommendations - they're all good. However, if you're a chick who want fast results (I'm talking about staying dry for days on end), just go right to Certain Dri. It's the clear winner and the amazon reviews prove it. Just sayin' :)

      I've heard a botox treatment can solve the problem for a while, in addition extreme cases are also a good candidate for surgery. It's important to separate the causes of excessive sweating, is it truly physical or is there a psychological aspect? All of your suggested treatments sound a whole lot better and are for sure less intrusive.

      In terms of improving this lens there are some good commercials on Youtube that could tie in nicely if you wanted to go there.

      Great info - every so often deodorant will fail and you need something stronger.
