Eye Opening Facts About Your Deodorants & Antiperspirants

Share This

Antiperspirant and deodorant is a common staple in most homes. It is used to get rid of odor and decrease the amount of sweat that excretes from the arm pits. Basically put, it blocks the sweat glands if certain ingredients are present. And of course, things are added to neutralize odor as well. All of these things culminate into a product that most of us have come to use without much thought, because after all, it isn't cool to have those huge sweat rounds on our clothing, not to mention the stench that comes with not using deodorant at all. deodorants and antiperspirants are being more widely used and advertised than ever before, but did you know that they may actually make you smell worse in the long run? According to a study, using antiperspirants causes actinobacteria - the microbes responsible for bad odour - to increase in our armpits.

To reach this conclusion, the study from University of Ghent in Belgium made eight participants stop using deodorant or antiperspirant for a month. A control group that did not use deodorant regularly was asked to use it for a month.The researchers analysed the diversity and abundance of subjects' armpit bacteria at various times before, during and for a few weeks after resuming the use of antiperspirant.The researchers found a clear increase of antinobacterial, in the subjects using antiperspirants, said a report on realclearscience website.

Most companies are focused on lots of profit, not people. I have to admit this, I have never really thought of how healthy or unhealthy deodorant is when I buy it, so this is a total eye-opener...
