What Is The Best Deodorant for Pregnancy?

by Sarah Thomas

“Since becoming pregnant I have suffered from severe self consciousness due to lady odor. It had gotten to the point of changing underwear 3 times a day and constantly using feminine wipes. Lume was a last ditch effort that I had little hope in until I tried it. One quick swipe on each thigh fold and I am totally odor free for a full 24hrs. This has changed my life. I am so grateful and feel confident in my pregnant body now. Thank you so much for this product!!!” - H

Pregnancy brings about a few special changes for mamas doing the work of growing a tiny human. Some of the changes are well known and expected - like weird food preferences, nesting, an ever growing belly, and emotions running high.

But a lot of women experience many unexpected changes - truly crazy dreams, feet growing a full size, wild hairs, darkened skin patches, stretch marks that end well below the belly, craving dirt or a tasty bit of clay, and a super special body odor that you’ve never had before.

Many experience an extra sensitive nose during pregnancy, so a change in body odor may seem like a double assault on your senses. That can erode self confidence at a time when you are adjusting to so many other changes.

Body odor changes are hormone driven, like everything else in pregnancy. Estradiol is both responsible for your extra sensory odor perception, AND body odor! In addition to off the charts hormones, your body is also working overtime to increase blood flow, which signals your body to sweat to cool you down.

When you are doing your best to take care of yourself for a healthy you and a healthy baby, you might wonder about using a deodorant that is safe for pregnancy.

Do You Need A Special Pregnancy Safe Deodorant?

Not if you’re using Lume. One of the great things about Lume is that it is one deodorant that works on every body part, and on everybody. Odor is odor - and it all has the same source - bacteria. Bacteria on our skin react with bodily fluids like sweat, blood, urine, and semen, and create odor. This reaction is the same whether under our arms, under boobs, in thigh folds, or private parts.

Lume is such an effective and innovative deodorant because it doesn’t just mask or cover up body odor after it forms, it actually prevents odor from forming in the first place.

What makes Lume The Best Deodorant For Pregnancy?

OB/GYN Developed

If you’re looking for the perfect deodorant endorsed by an OB/GYN, you’re in the right place. Actually, Lume does even better than that, because it was invented by an OB/GYN.

Dr. Shannon Klingman developed Lume Whole Body Deodorant because she treated so many women as patients who were concerned about private part odor and often misdiagnosed with BV, and she knew there had to be a better solution.

She discovered that more often than not, private part odor was an external problem, and no different from any other body odor. So women didn’t need dangerous douches or ineffective internal solutions - they needed an external solution.

Whole Body

You can use Lume Whole Body Deodorant absolutely anywhere you have odor but wish you didn’t. Lume was originally designed as a deodorant for private parts, but Dr. Klingman soon found out it was just as effective at controlling odor in our underarms, underboobs, feet, and beyond.

The thing about creating a deodorant that is safe and gentle enough to use on our delicate private parts is that it’s safe down there, it’s safe anywhere, and for everyone - including pregnant and nursing mothers.

72 Hour Odor Control

Lume is clinically proven to control odor for 72 hours whether you use our aluminum free Whole Body Deodorant or Whole Body Deodorant Plus Sweat Control, so you’ve got options.

pH Optimized

Powered by Mandelic Acid, Lume Whole Body Deodorant is pH optimized to control odor. Skin is happiest when it is slightly acidic and acidified skin smells better.

Some deodorants have a pH that is too high - especially those that contain baking soda, resulting in irritated skin. Lume Deodorants are formulated without baking soda, parabens, or phthalates.

Skin Tone Bonus

As if outrageously effective Whole Body odor control wasn’t enough, Lume Whole Body Deodorant is clinically proven to even skin tone, and visually decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

Beyond Deodorant

Now that you’ve found the perfect deodorant to use during pregnancy, here are a couple of hot tips if you want to support that odor control with equally fabulous washes and wipes:

Lume Acidified Body Wash and Acidified Cleansing Bar are as gentle as water on the skin, and are clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours. Our Body Wash and Cleansing Bar are also proven to visually decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation. So many wins!

For a quick touch up between showers, Lume Acidified Deodorant Wipes are a pregnancy dream. These are no ordinary wipes, they are clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours.

Pregnancy is a miracle and such a unique time in your life. Eliminate worries about body odor and smell better pregnant, absolutely everywhere!
