The Wide World of Deodorants

From antiperspirants and deodorants to roll-ons, gels, sticks and sprays, there’s a wide world of different types of deodorant. To help ensure you can pick the right deodorant for your needs with confidence, let’s first unpack the difference between the two primary types of deodorants - antiperspirants and deodorants - to help get you closer to finding the perfect product.

Antiperspirants Vs Deodorants

While the terms are used interchangeably, there are significant differences between deodorants and antiperspirants. Deodorants, with formulations that are usually alcohol-based and contain a type of fragrance, combat body odour by reducing and masking unpleasant smells. Helping to ensure you stay smelling fresh throughout the day. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, tackle sweat production head-on. With active ingredients like aluminium salts in their formulation, antiperspirants effectively control and minimise sweat, keeping you dry and confident.

Now that you're aware of the different types of deodorants available, it's time to find the perfect product for your unique requirements.
