Underarm Lesson

If you want maximum protection from an underarm product, choose an antiperspirant. If you're concerned with odor, choose a deodorant. Odor is caused by the bacteria that feed on chemical components in underarm sweat. A deodorant works by controlling the population of that bacteria and does not help control wetness. An antiperspirant helps control both odor and wetness. The active ingredient in an antiperspirant is aluminum a mineral that does a lot more than just control bacteria. Aluminum travels to sweat glands, where it reacts to obstruct the flow of perpiration.
