Deodorants – Ingredient Portfolio

Over recent years, we’ve seen new formulations within the deodorants market. From deodorants for sensitive skin without the inclusion of  baking soda, to different formats such as pastes and sticks, there is plenty of scope for formulations to experiment within the AP/DEO sector.

Global Opportunities

  • Natural and sustainable deodorant formulations – The continued spotlight on sustainability will spur growth in biodegradable and  refillable packs. Other focus areas include  aluminium-free, natural and ‘clean’ formulas to address persistent concerns around aluminium.
  • Added benefits – Promote added benefits that align with trending themes seen in other skincare sectors.  For example, convey ability to reveal healthy-looking and ‘glowing’ underarm skin, address concerns around uneven skin tone or pollution, and use terminology familiar and popular in skincare (eg serum, essence, mask, sheet).
  • Look beyond established long-lasting and antiperspirant claims to convey efficacy. Recent specialised easy use products have highlighted niches such as groin, scalp or breast odour, or body odour while on public transport.

The Ideal Solution

In order to achieve an optimal effect, an odour absorber should be combined with an antimicrobial agent and ideally with an on demand agent. This enables an “attack” at all relevant steps in the formation of odours..
