It's Six O'Clock in the morning, and you've just come out of the shower after a rigorous workout session. Okay, that sounds improbable; we'll make it at 8 in the morning. So it's 8 O'Clock in the morning, and you've just come out of the shower after a rigorous workout. What we'll discuss today is an integral part of your post-shower routine. Deodorants.
Let's be honest; we've all used deodorants. The market is full of deodorants for men & women and even unisex fragrances, but have we ever tried knowing what they are? Humans have masked their bodily stink for centuries with a covering fragrance, scents or perfumes. This was until about a century ago when antiperspirants were invented. Unlike deodorant perfumes, antiperspirants don't cover your body odor, and they stop its production.
What Causes Body Sweat?
Sweat and the odor are generated through the sweat glands in your body. These are of two kinds:
- Eccrine Glands
- Apocrine Glands
The Eccrine glands are spread over most of your body parts and open directly to the surface of your skin. They are usually active when your body produces heat.
The Apocrine glands are found in areas where you have hair, like your armpits. These produce more sweat when you're under stress that is odorless unless it reacts with the bacteria on your skin.
Deodorants have antiseptic elements that kill or disable bacteria in your armpits that survive in the warm and moist conditions of your armpits that cater for a hospitable environment for corynebacteria and other sweat-eating microorganisms.
Deodorants vs Antiperspirants: What should you use?
Among other things, the one major difference between deodorants and antiperspirants is that the former masks your body odor while the latter stops/controls your sweat.
You can easily find niche products in the market for both categories, like a deodorant roll-on for women or an antiperspirant spray for men. The varieties are endless, and the deodorant industry is estimated at a whopping 18 billion dollars. So let us have a look at some more differences between the two:
- Are considered cosmetics
- Has antimicrobial properties
- Masks odor
- It is considered a drug
- It is regulated by the FDA
- Blocks sweat glands
