Why Body Powder is Essential for Men

Written by: John Harper

Lathr released an unexpected surprise, scented body powders. I wasn’t even aware that these were being worked on, but Frank and his team do love throwing us for a loop at times. I know what you’re thinking, powders are for women. After all, some forms of makeup and soap that women use are in powder form. However, body powder is an essential for me, and I am thrilled that they have made some in some man-friendly scents.

Imagine going to a theme park, let’s say Disneyland. It’s hot as Hades outside, and you are sweating like you’re in a sauna. You have been walking all day and it starts to happen, the dreaded chafe. You try to spread your legs out, so your man bits aren’t rubbing against your leg, but then you look like a human zombie rambling through the park. Your awkward stride has been noticed by your family and others in the park. This could have all been prevented by body powder.

You see, part of what causes the chafing is sweat. This is what body powder helps with. It absorbs sweat into its tiny, scented particles, which also helps reduce friction. That friction is what causes chafing. Gentleman, if you sweat like you are 20 feet from the sun, this is a game changer.

Keeping your groin area dry is key to preventing infections and jock itch. The body powder is not a cure for pre-existing conditions, but it may help prevent new ones. If you have any of these conditions, be sure to consult your doctor. Body powder is not used to treat any medical condition.

I used to use dry spray from commercial brands, and they helped a bit. However, they are full of harsh chemicals. I feel much safer knowing Lathr has released a more natural version that doesn’t smell like baby powder. With manly scents like The Humidor, Barbershop, and Sandalwood Bourbon, it’s no longer embarrassing to use powder in fear of smelling like a baby.

As a bonus, Lathr’s body powder is baking soda and talc free. So, for people sensitive to baking soda on their skin, the formula is safe for you. It defeats the purpose when you use powder to prevent irritation, only to get it from baking soda. By employing arrowroot in place of baking soda, Lathr has ensured that you will be comfortable with the same primary ingredient as their popular deodorant, which is fantastic as well.

It also works well on other parts that sweat a lot. It’s a fine powder, so you won’t have to come home and shower it off. Think of it like a deodorant for your body, Although, using actual deodorant is much more effective for your underarms. I powder up my chest in the summer.

Let’s take a look at all of the ingredients…

Corn Starch – A powdery substance made from corn. It helps absorb moisture and wick it away from the skin to keep it dry.

Arrowroot – A tropical tuber(think of a potato) native to Indonesia. It helps absorb sweat and works as a natural antiperspirant.

Kaolin Clay – A mineral powder originating from China. Kaolin clay is widely used in cold process soap for its ability to help remove dirt from the skin and unclogging pores. It is used in body powder to absorb excess oils and toxins on the skin.

Allantoin – Derived from comfrey root, bearberry, or chestnut, allantoin is used for its skin soothing properties.

Aloe Leaf Extract – From the aloe plant, this popular skin-loving ingredient is widely used for several things. In Lathr’s body powder, it is used to calm and soothe the skin while softening it.

Zinc Oxide – Naturally extracted from zinc, this powder helps soothe skin and absorbs excess oils.

Fragrance – Scented in a variety of masculine scents that will not increase your testosterone, but it may allow you to make friends with a bear. Seriously though, don’t mess with bears. It’s not good for your health.

So, as you can see, Lathr’s body powder is full of ingredients that make sense. There aren’t any frills or mystery ingredients with long-scientific names that you have to Google. Just wholesome stuff that works. Keep your boys happy this summer, invest in some body powder and you will see how much you’ve been missing out on. There is no need to miss some fun in the sun due to sweaty skin.
