Antiperspirant or Deodorant?
What’s The Diff?
The terms “deodorant” and “antiperspirant” are often used interchangeably, but they really are completely different. Deodorant deodorizes or prevents odor by masking it or neutralizing it. While Antiperspirant prevents odor because it actually prevents your armpits from sweating.
Does Antiperspirant Give You Cancer?
The ingredient in antiperspirant that has a lot of people nervous is aluminum. There is a thought that there is correlation between antiperspirant use and Alzheimer as well as cancer (with an emphasis on breast cancer). While scientists and experts state that they have not found a clear, definitive link between antiperspirant/deodorants and cancer , many (myself included) have decided to stay on the safer, natural side by opting for aluminum free deodorants like (OE Deodorant Spray.)
The dominant theory is that the aluminum-based ingredients in antiperspirants somehow react with sweat or skin or laundry detergent to make that foul stain. (Yellowing phenomenon) according to the Wall Street Journal. The only way to truly prevent them is to say no to aluminum-based antiperspirants.
Deodorant kills bacteria
Sweat isn’t inherently stinky. In fact, it’s nearly odorless. The stench comes from bacteria that break down one of two types of sweat on your skin. Deodorant contains some antibacterial power to stop the stink before it starts.
