Sebamed Deodorant Roll-On Active

Hello everyone,

I'm going to bring a subject that may feels sensitive for some people, I know for sure body odor is not a discussion we are willing to make in a crowd, it's something that we still reluctantly share while whispering.

Now, deodorant is a product that has been in the market for decades and comes in many variations, type and range. In the end, we have to choose a product that beneficial, one for eliminating or reducing the smell, and the other is for the safety, as some brand does contain dangerous ingredients that has been linked to skin problem to cancer (yikes!).


Here is one deodorant from Sebamed collection, they do carry varieties of deodorant, from roll-on to spray, mine is Roll-On in Active.

Details from
Prevents body odour without impairing the
natural function of the sweat glands
  • Supports and protects the natural barrier function of the skin’s acid mantle
  • With the pH value of 5.5 of healthy skin
  • Without preservatives and colour additives
Product features:
  • Without metal derivatives or harmful chemical additives
  • Active deodorizing ingredient Triethyl Citrate specifically inhibits growth and metabolism of body odour causing bacteria
  • Reliable protection
  • Does not impede the physiological functions of the sweat glands
  • pH value of 5.5 supports natural ecological system of the skin for natural deodorizing protection
  • 3 choices of perfume - Active, Blossom and Fresh

Reading the details makes me feel safe in using it, now, it's testing time, is it able to conquer a pregnant lady sweats and body odor? I feel hot most of the time due to the pregnancy and I do sweat more.

First the scent, it is a bit masculine, but still usable by an active women out there (like me). When used, the product feels comfortable and dries quite fast. In terms of usage of a deodorant roll-on it is always best to let the product dries up before putting on clothes, so drying time is important, if it's too long (more than 1-2 minutes) it would be a troublesome for a busy momma. So Sebamed Roll-on Active that dries up within a minute considered good, helpful and practical.

Next is the ability to eliminate odor, for me who needs a heavy duty deodorant, the roll on last maximum 5 hours in an active mode, meaning: going from event to event and sweats due to the walking and office activities. If you are someone like me, always prepare a baby wipes to clean up the armpit then let it dry before reapplying in the middle of the day and you'll be fresh again.

If you are a mild odory-person (which means in a level of smelliness you're on 5 or 6 out of 10 .....where I'm 10) this deodorant will be enough for the whole day without the need of touch up.

Why I love this product?
It doesn't 'clogged' the sweat glands, so perspiration is still normal and natural, hence, no sensitivity nor itchiness felt afterwards. This is good for a long term usage since the product wont irritate the skin.

Thank you Sebamed Indonesia.


  1. Hey, thank you for the post. I am also pregnant but got a little worried in relation to the parfume..? I am using Sebamed deo and have been doing for quite some time now because of the "no aluminium" - but then I thought more about the parfume that is usually what you should avoid when pregnant..
    What do you think?

  2. Hi EggsInAll,

    hmm, how about consulting to your doctor, mine actually says a little bit is still okay, I've tried those organic non aluminum, non perfumed, all natural deo, and they are not working, at all >.< being pregnant means sweats here and there and the smell also made me feel far from confident, so I kinda pick the one that contain the least but still effective :)

  3. Hi. Where can i buy sebamed deo here in SG? Thanks!

  4. i don't know, try Guardian, Watson, or best, google it.
