Dealing with stressful moments or even a relatively warm day can make your armpit sweat a lot. You may think it is quite easy to manage a sweaty armpit and applying any type of body care product can actually do the job. Unfortunately, not every deodorant or antiperspirant works the same for everyone. So, you will need to find one that will perform as how you expect it to. However, choosing the best deodorants for men does not just mean picking the one that you first see on the store shelf, nor considering any that promises to banish your sweat away. Note that there is more that you will actually need from a deodorant than just control the perspiration and the odor.
The first thing that you should understand is the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant.
Should You Choose a Deodorant or an Antiperspirant?
A deodorant is a mixture of fragrance and acidic or salty ingredients like alcohol, witch hazel, zinc oxide and baking soda. This mixture is designed to kill bacteria-causing odor, as well as absorb sweat. The primary function of a deodorant is to keep your armpit from stinking.
An antiperspirant, on the other hand, is composed of aluminum compounds, such as aluminum chloride or aluminium chlorohydrate. It is designed to block sweat glands and prevent the flow of sweat from the pores of your skin. Aluminum was initially determined to increase the risk of certain health problems, such as a certain kind of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and dementia.
The chief scientist with the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC), John Bailey, PhD said that, “these products can be used with high confidence of their safety. They’ve been used for many years, and there’s no evidence that suggests a problem,” however. The PCPC is the trade association that represents the cosmetic and personal care products industry.
Sweat on its own is odorless. What makes it smell is the bacteria that develops in it. That is the reason why you smell a lot worse when it is already the end of the day than when you just started your day. Studies also show that regular use of antiperspirant can better slow down the growth of bacteria in the armpit than simply using deodorant.
This only goes to show that not all deodorants are made to be the same. Hence, you need to be sure which of those underarm sweat and odor control products that you should buy or use. Finding the best deodorants for men takes a lot more than just merely reading the product labels, as well. It takes a bit of observation, research, and even testing. (more…)
