Thank Deodorant – So we keep the stink-stopper long fresh
If our deodorant is a good friend, it would have earned each summer and again we would write a thank you letter. This could be something like this: ‘Dear Deodorant We owe a lot to you. How do you manage your job welding stopper anyway?’
Answers we did not get our deodorant, by Anette Burger. It is a laboratory manager in product development of deodorants at Nivea and knows the secret of fresh deodorants exactly. How does it work? And how it protects us particularly reliable?
Deodorant or antiperspirant: Both stop body odor
The deodorants contain active ingredients that fight the bacteria in our armpits. Sweat does not smell alone. Only when bacteria decompose it, the typical stuffiness comes on. They also contain fragrances that neutralize odor may occur. Anette Burger says ‘Antiperspirants provide very good deodorant protection and also reduce the amount of sweat effectively’. Antiperspirant actives include aluminum salts. You narrow the sweat pores and thus ensure that we sweat less.
Which drugs are still in deodorant?
Deodorants can stop much more than just stink and sweat: cultivate vegetable oils and smooth as the skin (eg avocado oil), soothing ingredients such as chamomile or panthenol help prevent skin irritation, minerals (eg magnesium salts) absorb moisture and provide a dry skin feeling. So-called – Anti-Stain Ingredients – to minimize the risk that the deodorant leaves marks on clothes.
Some deodorants promise protection for 48 hours, some even four days. How can such a long reach ‘fug-protection’?
Anette Burger says – We know that the antiperspirant that narrows the sweat pores, acts over several days, until it is removed by the natural skin renewal –
‘This means that the drug will even withstand the daily shower or shave armpit hair.’ This also allows after two days still significantly reducing sweat and deodorizing effect prove – without the skin is irritated. But also a time-Deodorant should be used every day for the best effect.
If the deodorant leaves white traces …
For the unsightly whitish deodorant marks the aluminum salts are responsible. If they are not dissolved or crystallized, they leave traces, but usually can be washed easily. A special technology solves this problem by encases the aluminum salts with oils and so almost invisible makes. deodorant traces remain from when you let the deodorant dry before dressing.
