Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

The Difference Between Anti-Perspirant And Deodorant

  When you’re faced with the decision of whether to buy a deodorant or anti-perspirant, you need to understand what the difference between them is so you can make the best choice.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ANTI-PERSPIRANT AND DEODORANT?

Deodorants contain deodorising active ingredients that prevent bacteria growth and even reduce the amount of odour-producing bacteria. Anti-perspirants are formulated to help reduce sweating itself but are also effective as a deodorant as bacteria growth is inhibited due to a lower pH and less wetness.

HOW DO ANTI-PERSPIRANTS WORK?

Anti-perspirants work by blocking the pores on the outer layer of your skin, reducing the amount of sweat allowed to the surface.

Deodorants, on the other hand, target the smell associated with sweat. They contain alcohol or other high-performance active ingredients that are alcohol-free.

People with easily irritated skin may choose products without alcohol. Alcohol-free products such as NIVEA Black & White Invisible Clear Anti-Perspirant or NIVEA MEN Black & White Invisible Original Anti-Perspirant keep your skin happy while providing long-lasting freshness.

Just like classic deodorants, anti-perspirants come in all sorts of different scents and even fragrance free. Pick the scent to match your mood, why not try out our new NIVEA Pearl & Beauty Fine Fragrance Anti-Perspirant or another fresh scent.

Find out the best way to keep stress at bay and prevent unwanted odours and wetness with a specially formulated anti-perspirant. Apply your favourite NIVEA anti-perspirant in the morning and reapply throughout the day, if necessary.

 

Remember to be kind to your skin. Wearing breathable, natural fabrics and choosing bed linen made of natural fabrics rather than synthetics are great ways to help the skin keep cool naturally. Similarly, layering up rather than relying on one thick jumper helps your body to control its temperature.

CHOOSING THE BEST ANTI-PERSPIRANT FOR YOU

There are lots of anti-perspirants to choose from. Find the one that suits your individual needs and leaves you feeling confident.

WHICH ANTI-PERSPIRANT IS THE BEST FOR ME?

With the right anti-perspirant, you radiate confidence and feel comfortable in your own skin. If you tend to excessively sweat, it is important to choose a strong anti-perspirant that lasts for up to 48 hours.

With anti-perspirant sprays, roll-ons and sticks, there are many options to choose from. On the days when you are in a hurry, you might want to reach for the anti-perspirant spray. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to format. Some women prefer the feel of a roll-on, while others like the ease of anti-perspirant sprays.

The good news is that each application format is as effective and easy to use as the next.
