Deodorant and Antiperspirant, what are they?
Deodorants and antiperspirants are two tools that allow us to control bad underarm odor.
Before starting, we need to make a premise: the sweat we produce has no smell,te on the skin that emit unpleasant aromas when they come into contact with itinstead it is the bacteria that stagna Therefore it is always good to maintain proper hygiene especially in those areas of the body where sweat can stagnate. We recommend the use of Base Lavante, which is also ideal for frequent washing.
What are the differences between a deodorant and an antiperspirant?
Both the traditional deodorant and the antiperspirant have the same goal, not to make us emit unpleasant smells, but the mechanism of action is completely different.
What does antiperspirant deodorant mean?
Unlike the traditional deodorant, which limits bad odor by masking it with strong fragrances and often with the addition of alcohol as an antibacterial agent, the antiperspirant works by controlling the production of the sweat glands. The antiperspirant therefore, by preventing perspiration, consequently manages to eliminate bad odors triggered by the contact of sweat with the skin.
How to use antiperspirant deodorant?
Applying antiperspirant deodorant is very simple. It is sufficient to apply it in the morning and as needed, to enjoy its effects throughout the day.
How does antiperspirant deodorant work?
As already mentioned, an antiperspirant acts precisely on the cause of the bad smell by controlling the production of sweat.
Using an antiperspirant deodorant you get a less humid environment and therefore the bacteria will struggle to live and reproduce and consequently no bad smell will be generated.
The action of the antiperspirant is therefore double:
1) Limits the production of sweat in the underarm area.
2) Reduces the formation of unpleasant odors, making us feel fresh throughout the day.
Is there a difference between antiperspirant for women and men?
No. In the case of traditional deodorants what can make the difference is the type of fragrance used to cover bad smells. Armpit antiperspirants usually do not have any fragrance and their operation is suitable for everyone.
Can deodorant be applied immediately after shaving?
It is possible that by applying traditional deodorants, especially after shaving, you may feel a burning sensation due to the presence of alcohol or other antibacterial components or particularly aggressive fragrances. For those with sensitive skin, it is preferable to use an alcohol-free and fragrance-free antiperspirant.
