Deodorant Product Review
- Many people inquire about the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant. As the names imply, antiperspirants actually block sweat while deodorant eliminates sweat odor. If you're working outdoors or working out, a deodorant alone should do. Keep in mind that most deodorants you purchase off the shelf are antiperspirants.
- Every body is different, and will respond to skin products in different ways.
- If you have allergies to skin products, you should seek out mild deodorant/antiperspirant products.
- Some individuals have concerns about the safety of the ingredients in mainstream deodorants. While there has been no conclusive evidence, there have been urban legends that the aluminums present in many deodorants can increase the risk of cancer, particularly breast cancer. If this were true, wouldn't the incidences of breast cancer be higher among men? However, if you feel the need to be vigilant about cancer for other reasons, you might want to check out some of the natural deodorants/antiperspirants on the market.
