What's the difference between deodorant and anti-perspirant?

Updated 2 weeks ago by Pine Tar Connoisseur

Anti-perspirants are products formulated specifically to prevent or stop perspiration (sweat). De-odorants prevent or stop you from being odorous (stinky).

Typically, all antiperspirants are deodorants (they block sweat and deodorize), but not all deodorants are antiperspirants. This distinction is made by one ingredient: if it contains aluminum, the product is an antiperspirant. The aluminum used in synthetic antiperspirant block your pores to prevent you from sweating and traps it back in your body. Check out the natural collection HERE.
