Brands like Degree make “for women” and “for men” deodorants with the same list of ingredients, but charge women more. For Degree Dry Protection Antiperspirant and Deodorant for women, it’s $1.53 an ounce; for Degree Men Dry Protection Antiperspirant and Deodorant, it’s $1.48 an ounce. Both contain Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly as the active ingredient and a nearly identical set of inactive ingredients. Other Degree deodorants marketed to women are even more expensive at $1.92 an ounce. And that’s not the only brand to ask women to pay more. Dove deodorant does it too, with the antiperspirant and deodorant for the ladies at $1.53 an ounce and the one for men at $1.44 an ounce.

Though the Degree male and female products are almost exactly the same, sometimes deodorants for men are stronger than those for women — another reason to go for the guys’ product over the girls’. “You’ll probably get a more powerful product and extra oomph out of a men’s deodorant,” Rubin says.
