Deodorant for a 9 year old boy?

Please... I need it... I mean, my son need it... he already needs deodorant. But all the ones I see out there are for MEN, not... you know, HALF men. So what should I do? Haven't see anything for pre-teens like my Eddyl, so should I buy the men deodorant? Or is there anything else I can use with him? Im open to make one myself.

ETA: Found this http://www.jvnaturals.com/Products.html

Anyone use this? I dont buy anything without real reviews from real people you know?

kid's deodorant- weird that there isn't a 'teen spirit' market for boys, AXE may work- but I found this site aimed solely for safe for kids stuff- you would have to order it and i don't know the cost- but it is a thought... good luck!

Can't you get something like SURE or Degree or something like that? They don't have strong "man" smells, would work well for a preteen, I think.

my older girls are 12 and almost 9 and they used teen spirit and now degree unscented- probably any with low to no smell would be good- or one for sensitive skin.

Axe seems popular among the teen set. My kids' school nurse handed out Old Spice to the boys when she discussed hygiene with the kids. I haven't had much luck finding scent-free deo. for men.

There are also a lot of sellers on Etsy who make natural deodorants with essential oils like peppermint and orange. That is what I plan on using for my girls who are 9 and 10.

Re: Deodorant for a 9 year old boy?

Tom's makes several nice natural deodorants too. I use the woodspice personally even though it is a more "masculine" scent. It kind of reminds me of sandal wood which I find appealing. There is an "unscented" but I don't think it works quite as well and the lavender oil in the Apricot and Lavender irritates my skin. However your son might like the woodspice or the unscented, they are "masculine" enough without being over powering for a younger boy. I've tried several of the crystals and they don't work for me. They seem to be enough for my oldest son but he hasn't hit puberty yet so it is more that little boy puppy dog in the heat smell that we are combating, not real BO yet.
