Antiperspirant vs. Deodorant: What's the difference?
What’s the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant? When you know the ins and outs, choosing one that works for you is easy.
Here’s our quick guide full of tips for which one to choose and when, so you stay feeling protected all day long – no matter what your choice is.
Antiperspirant vs deodorant. What’s the difference?
It’s simple. Deodorant protects against odour, while antiperspirant protects against sweat and odour. Deodorant will help keep you fresh, whereas antiperspirant also helps to control sweat, perfect if you want to avoid underarm wetness. Aluminum is the active ingredient in antiperspirant that helps reduce sweat.
Which one should you choose?
Tailor your protection to your needs. Having a relaxing day? If sweat is not a concern, you can choose deodorant with 0% aluminum for all day freshness. Try the cool scent of Dove Go Fresh 0% Aluminum Cucumber & Green Tea to stay fresh. Hectic day at work ahead?
