8 Things That You Might Not Know About Antiperspirants and Deodorants!

Health Admin Thursday, 21st of May 2020

1. Deodorant eliminates bacteria

Well, we all know that the one that causes those bad odors is the bacteria on the sweat, right? Deodorants are a lifesaver. They will keep you smelling good as they eliminate those bacteria that lies in your sweat.

2. The anti-body odor is an old-time trend

Yes, you heard that right. Like said from the previous one up there, the Ancient Egyptians made the first anti-body odor products which are later known as deodorants. And did you know that the first-ever trademarked deodorant is called Mum and was created in 1888, a man that is a long time ago, And after 15 years, the first-ever antiperspirant came out and it is called Everdry.

3. Antiperspirants do not really stop the production of sweat

This aluminum found in antiperspirants does a good job of stopping the eccrine sweat glands. But it is just 20 percent effective.

4. Your body can become immune to the antiperspirant you use daily

Believe it or not but our bodies can adapt to the effects an antiperspirant can do to our sweat glands, and nobody knows a thing about it. Some people say that the body itself can find ways to resist the effects and start producing more sweat on other glands. A doctor said that it is better to have a variety of brands for deodorants and antiperspirants in order to prevent the body from adapting from its effects.

5. Whether you’re a man or woman, deodorant is effective

Do you know that women have more sweat glands than men? Yes, it’s true but the cool thing here is men’s sweat glands produce more sweat then women do. Although there are separate products or brands of antiperspirants and deodorants that are specified for men and women, in reality, they are all the same, and all of these “separated” things is just a marketing strategy. And it is funny to think that all of us still fall for this kind of marketing. The only difference is the style and scent of the deodorant.

6. Some people do not need deodorants

Well, some may advertise really well that people are still convinced to buy and use deodorants every day. And do you know that most people don’t smell bad at all? Yes, it is all true. And some people are simply lucky because they naturally don’t smell bad at all because of their genes.

7. No one really knows where those yellow stains came from

Not even the ones who make deodorants and antiperspirants and not even the scientists know why are there yellow stains left in the armpits when they use deodorants and antiperspirants. But the main thing here is that some theorize that it came from the aluminum compounds which can be seen on antiperspirants as they have certain chemical reactions with the sweat, shirt, or the skin. And according to some research, the best way to get rid of these yellow stains is just to simply avoid buying and using aluminum-based antiperspirants.

8. You can produce your own deodorant and antiperspirant

Isn’t that amazing that you can improvise or somehow create your own deodorant and antiperspirant right at your own home! Well, there are certain things or ingredients needed in order to make one. The bright side of making your own deodorant or antiperspirant is that it is very easy to do, and for the brighter side of it, it can cost you less or nothing at all because they are purely natural, all you need is some certain oil and extracts together with its antibacterial compounds which can add up in removing those unwanted bad smell from your underarm.
