Case in point: Shield’s highly innovative Invisible Black & White range of antiperspirants. Now you can stay fresh and dry all day, and your precious garments will be protected against the stain-causing residue that could come with extended deodorant useOpens in a new window.

Deodorant Stain Causes & Prevention Tips

We’ve all seen them on our black and white clothes, the white marks, or yellow deodorant stains on white shirts that build up in the underarm areas – they’re not only unsightly and embarrassing, but they can ruin expensive clothes.

What causes deodorant stains?

Usually, the culprit is the presence of certain proteins included in an antiperspirant’s composition. This mixed with ingredients like alkali or aluminium – along with mixtures that produce certain scents we enjoy – can cause a powdery residue to form. And when it comes to sweat stains, those same ingredients mixed with the natural chemical composition of an individual and their natural oils can cause that typical yellow tinge.

What makes deodorants stains worse?

The severity of the staining will vary though. It depends on how often you apply antiperspirant, how heavily you sweat, and the amount you need to feel comfortable. However, in cases of heavy residue marking and staining, prevention is always more effective than cure.

Shield has that prevention. When seeking to find out how to avoid deodorant stains, look no further than Shield’s innovative anti-mark technology.
