Antiperspirant vs. Deodorant: What is 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 too. Deodorant will help keep you fresh, whilst antiperspirant helps to control sweat, perfect if you want to avoid underarm wetness. Aluminium salts are the active ingredient that make the antiperspirant reduce sweat.
If sweat is not a worry, you can choose deodorant with 0% aluminium salts for all day freshness.
Which one should you choose?
Tailor your protection to your needs. Having a relaxing day? Try the cool scent of Dove Go Fresh Cucumber & Green Tea Roll-on Antiperspirant Deodorant to stay fresh. Hectic day at work ahead? Choose Dove Original Antiperspirant to stay feeling fresh and dry from meeting to meeting.
