The best deodorant for a 9 yr old?

My daughter has had underarm odor since she was 4 or 5. Baking soda and vaseline was the cure then. Since Dove came out she has been using that, it doesn't break her out, but now it has stopped working and I guess just like adults she'll have to switch brands every now and again. But does anyone know what is safe for someone that young?

  • I avoid all deoderants with aluminum. I'd check into a natural deoderant. Also, it could be something in her diet.
