A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or hide body odour due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration. A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweating itself, typically by blocking sweat glands. Deodorants contain deodorizing actives which prevent bacterial growth or even reduce the number of bacteria. Selecting a deodorant perfect for you takes quite some thinking and testing. With an array of deodorants focused from fragrance to sensitive skin to moisturizing too, it’s one purchase that you take your time with. Deodorants are not really biased between genders. There’s no real difference between women’s and men’s deodorants except for the fragrance and packaging. The same ingredients are present in deodorants for both genders.
