Anti-perspirant or deodorant? What is the difference?
The fundamental difference between an antiperspirant and a regular deodorant is simple. A deodorant aims to reduce the smell of sweat, whereas an antiperspirant is designed to reduce your sweat production. An antiperspirant thus enters and reduces the amount of sweat produced.
Can antiperspirant and deodorant be combined?
You can combine the two and in that way get the best of both worlds. When an antiperspirant and a deodorant are combined, a mild fragrance is added. This means that you get the benefits of both; the antiperspirant goes in and reduces your sweat production, while the deodorant ensures that a mild fragrance is added.
