What is the difference between antiperspirant and deodorant
Dr. Komorowski replied to the forum to question 10-year-old boy about what age children can use deodorant and Cologne. He also explained the difference between antiperspirant and deodorant, writes the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.
He said that colognes were invented in a time when people did not have access to normal hygiene products.
“For example, our guy is in the woods, moves a lot, not very nice smell, but water, soap, soul, what can he do? To napsylate on Cologne to smell bad. That is, the Cologne masks the smell of dirty human,” — said Komorowski added that with deodorants the situation is somewhat different.
“There are two concepts. There is a deodorant – it softens too strong or intense smell of sweat. Deodorant is applied to the places where sweat is produced actively, well, the armpit, for example, and it makes the smell of sweat is not so sharp. In addition, there are tools that are called antiperspirants. It is quite another. Antiperspirant acting on the sweat glands by blocking and reducing the amount of sweat and thus reducing the smell,” explained the doctor added that children don’t need deodorant and its excessive use can cause problems with sweat glands.
Komorowski also added that to use a deodorant any person, regardless of age, but only if he or others don’t like the smell of sweat.
