Which is safer – underarm roll-on or body spray deodorant?

If we refer exclusively to benzene contamination, underarm roll-on deodorant is the safe alternative, as the highly toxic chemical was found only in body spray deodorant. However, other dangerous ingredients may lurk in roll-on deodorants, such as propylene glycol and parabens.

To avoid benzene exposure, choose a roll-on or stick deodorant instead of a body spray

Valisure found benzene only in antiperspirant and deodorant body sprays, as these are the products the researchers had analyzed. While benzene may be present as a contaminant in roll-on and stick deodorants, there is currently no study focusing on these products, so they are deemed safe, at least for now. Even if both roll-on and body spray deodorant contained benzene, it would still be preferable to use the former, as the inhalation of the chemical would not occur. The same applies to stick deodorant. By using a roll-on or stick deodorant, you significantly lower your risk of benzene exposure.
