Excessive sweating may lead to some embarrassing moments like body odor and sweaty armpits. We use deodorants or antiperspirants to mask the odor and reduce sweat. Do you know the differences between them? Here is everything you need to know about deodorants and antiperspirants.

Antiperspirants VS Deodorants: What’s the difference?

Both antiperspirants and deodorants work to reduce body odor but in different ways.

Deodorant protects against odor by increasing the skin’s acidity. Deodorants are typically alcohol-based and contain perfume that helps to keep you fresh and mask odor.

Antiperspirant protects against both sweat and odor by controlling the production of sweat. It contains the active ingredient “Aluminum” that helps to reduce sweat. Antiperspirants help to avoid underarm wetness perfectly all day.

Over-sweating people prefer using antiperspirants to deodorants as antiperspirants can reduce sweat to avoid underarm wetness and prevent body odor effectively. However, deodorants increase skin acidity to reduce odor-causing bacteria only.

If sweat is not a big concern, you can choose deodorants with zero Aluminum to stay fresh all day long.
