Deodorants contain deodorising active ingredients that prevent bacteria growth and even reduce the amount of odour-producing bacteria. Antiperspirants are formulated to help reduce sweating itself but are also effective as a deodorant as bacteria growth is inhibited due to a lower pH and less wetness.
Most long-lasting antiperspirants work by temporarily blocking the sweat glands on the surface of the skin so that less sweat can pass through.
Deodorants, on the other hand, target the smell associated with sweat. They contain alcohol or other high-performance active ingredients that are alcohol-free.
People with easily irritated skin may choose products without alcohol. Alcohol-free products such as NIVEA Dry Comfort Plus Antiperspirant
or NIVEA Dry Fresh Roll-on
keep skin happy while providing lasting freshness.
Just like classic deodorants, antiperspirants come in all sorts of different scents and even fragrance free. Pick the scent to match your mood, such as NIVEA Stress Protect Spray or another fresh scent.
