Deodorants: all you need to know about the “fighters” of body odor
Perspiration is the normal reaction of the human body against the factors that make our temperature rise, such as increased environmental heat, physical exercise, stress, anger, spicy foods, etc. Glands secrete sweat to restore our body’s normal temperature. Sweat is usually odorless and colorless, while it is made of 95% water. So, what’s the cause of bad odors?
At this point we need to clarify something important; the main “problem” isn’t the sweating itself, but the malodorousness, which is caused by the effect of skin bacteria as the sweat decomposes. In certain body parts, such as the armpits, where there is relative humidity and sweat gets “trapped”, it’s easier for bacteria to accumulate, thus resulting to unsavory odors.
Deodorants vs antiperspirants
Something that’s worth pointing out -since it isn’t widely known- is the difference between deodorants and antiperspirants.
Deodorants combat unpleasant body odors without preventing perspiration. Thanks to their antibacterial and antifungal properties, prevent the further development of microorganisms, offering a sense of freshness. On the other hand, antiperspirants usually contain ingredients, such as aluminum salts, that constrict the pores of the skin, thus preventing sweating. However, as we have already explained, perspiration is not only normal but also extremely useful, therefore, the aim is to get rid of unpleasant odors only.
