Spray Deodorants Defined

A spray deodorant is an aerosol or spray that is designed to help control body odour and is applied by spraying a fine mist onto the underarms or other desired areas of the body.

Spray deodorants usually contain a combination of active ingredients that work to combat odour-causing bacteria and provide fragrance. These active ingredients often include antimicrobial agents, such as aluminium compounds or triclosan, which help inhibit the growth of bacteria responsible for producing body odour. Some spray deodorants may also offer additional features, such as antiperspirant properties too.

At Shield, we have created a range of body sprays for men and women that keep you protected against body odour and excessive sweating, leaving you feeling fresh all day long. Our range of body sprays include:


Roll-On Deodorants Defined

A roll-on deodorant typically comes in a small container with a ball-shaped applicator at the top and is designed to be rolled directly onto the underarms. They contain a liquid or gel-like formula that is applied by gliding the ball applicator across the skin.

The formulation of roll-on deodorants is similar to other types of deodorants and typically includes the same or similar active ingredients found in spray deodorants to combat body odour too.

As with our range of body sprays, Shield has also developed a range of roll-ons for men, women, and teenagers too, all with the single purpose of keeping you fragranced all day no matter how active you are. Our range of body sprays includes:


The Similarities Between Spray Deodorants and Roll-ons

They are made differently and deliver their product in different ways, but there are also several similarities to these two types of fragrance products. Here are the main similarities between roll-ons and spray deodorants:

  • Both spray and roll-on deodorants are designed to control body odour and provide a fresh scent.
  • Both types of deodorants are applied directly to the underarms or other desired areas of the body. Spray deodorants are applied by spraying a fine mist onto the skin, while roll-on deodorants are applied by rolling the product directly onto the skin using a ball-shaped applicator.
  • Spray and roll-on deodorants typically contain similar active ingredients to combat body odour including antimicrobial agents, such as aluminium compounds to reduce sweat for bacteria to feed on and cause body odour.
  • They both include fragrances to provide a pleasant scent and mask any odours. The fragrance components help to leave a fresh scent on the skin throughout the day.
  • Spray and roll-on deodorants are convenient to use and can be easily carried in a bag or pocket for on-the-go application.

The Differences Between Spray Deodorants and Roll-ons

When it comes to the difference between roll-ons and spray deodorants, there are a few distinguishing features of each type of product which make them different.

  • The most obvious difference is the method of application. Spray deodorants are applied by spraying a fine mist onto the skin, while roll-on deodorants are applied by rolling the product directly onto the skin.
  • Spray deodorants usually have a lightweight, liquid or aerosol-based formula. When sprayed onto the skin, they can provide a cooling and refreshing sensation. On the other hand, roll-on deodorants have a gel-like or liquid consistency which can be smoother and may leave a slightly wet or damp feeling until it dries.
  • Spray deodorants tend to offer broader coverage with a wider spray radius. They can quickly cover larger areas, making them suitable for those who want a more efficient application. Roll-on deodorants, with their ball applicators, provide more precise control and allow for targeted application, making them suitable for those who prefer more controlled coverage or need to address specific areas.
  • Spray deodorants typically dry quickly due to their fine mist formulation. Roll-ons may take a bit longer to dry due to their gel-like consistency. They may leave a slightly wet or sticky feeling until fully absorbed.

Choosing Your Type

Now that you understand the similarities and differences between the two types of deodorizing products, it’s time to choose your type. Ask yourself these important questions to help you decide which product to try first.

  1. What type of coverage do I need?
  2. Do I need a product that is more compact than another?
  3. Do I have any sensitivities to certain ingredients that may be found either in a spray or roll-on?
  4. Have I used a certain type of product in the past that hasn’t worked? Or perhaps has worked well?
