The Different Between Antiperspirants and Deodorants
Hello, I'm Doctor Neal Schultz and welcome to DermTV. Do you use an antiperspirant or deodorant? Actually, most of the people, I ask that question to really aren’t sure which one they're using and they also don’t know what the differences between antiperspirants and deodorants.
Actually, they work in two different ways and they do two different things so depending on what your problem is that really is what should guide as to which you are using. But let me explain, underarm odors is caused by the action of bacteria acting on chemicals in your sweat. The more you sweat the more the water in the sweat makes the bacteria grow or more bacteria to act on more chemicals and the production of more and more odor is almost like a positive feedback cycle.
And to that, the presence of the hair in the underarm area, the hair is a great place for bacteria to hide and live, so there's even more bacteria there. Antiperspirants work by just decreasing the amount of sweat you are making. They help actually seal or clog some of the sweat glands, most of the antiperspirants in the United States are aluminum salts and the aluminum salts despite what you may have heard are safe and they don’t cause cancer.
But the antiperspirant just stops the production of the sweat. It doesn’t affect the bacteria. On the other hand, deodorants kill bacteria and if you don’t have any bacteria you can't have any odor, but the deodorants that stop the bacteria don’t have any effect on the way you are sweating or the amount of sweat you make. So the bottom line is if you have excess sweat and odor or just excess sweat you need an antiperspirant and these are all labeled as antiperspirant. If your problem is not excess sweating but it is just underarm odor then you want to use something more as a deodorant.
But the deodorant itself is not going to help you stop excess sweating. So next time you’re shopping for your personal care product think about what your issue is that you are trying to solve and then take a look at the labels on the packages.
