What's the difference between an anti-perspirant and a deodorant?
A product, which specifically prevents body odour, is called deodorant. Deos cover body odour with the help of perfume and additional anti-bacterial actives.
A product, that is preventing perspiration, is called antiperspirant. Antiperspirants are as effective as deodorants, but deliver two benefits of malodour and wetness protection. They regulate the underarm wetness to prevent wet marks on the clothing.
Where does the bad smell of sweat come from?
Our sweat pores produce a milky and odourless substance. The typical perspiration odour is caused by bacteria that are found in that part of the human body. Especially in the armpit area, sweat cannot evaporate well, whereby the bacteria multiply faster. This means that unpleasant odour and excessive sweating may occur. This can be prevented by the use of deodorants or anti-perspirants.
