Within the realm of natural and organic personal care products, deodorants and antiperspirants loom large simply because the overall category itself is very large in any retail health and beauty aids planogram. These two related products—i.e., antiperspirants and deodorants (AP/Deo)—are fraternal twins joined at the axilla that perform in this same anatomical arena using some of the same tricks.

The formulation matrix delivery system is the key to effectiveness and acceptable consumer antiperspirant systems. The most common delivery systems are roll-ons (either aqueous or cyclosiloxane suspensions), aerosol (hydrocarbon propellant suspensions), extrudable clear gels (water-in-cyclosiloxane emulsions), extrudable opaque soft solids (anhydrous cyclosiloxane suspension pastes) or solid sticks (anhydrous cyclomethicone suspension solids).

Growing worldwide demand for mild, natural ingredients has prompted new formulating approaches in deodorants, yet the number of efficacious ingredients outside of antiperspirant actives has remained limited. This paper looks at historic approaches to formulating for deodorancy and examines recent data pertaining to myristamidopropyl PG-dimonium chloride phosphate, a naturally derived ingredient with application in deodorants.

In antiperspirants and deodorants, active ingredients or product formulations can alter the perfume oils or individual odorants in the aqueous alcoholic solutions. Thus, it is important to conduct stability tests before large-scale manufacture and distribution. In the described study, researchers evaluated the stability of various flavor and fragrance materials in deodorant sticks containing active ingredients.
