Deodorants are substances applied to the body to avoid body odor emanating from bacterial breakdown of perspiration in sweat sensitive parts of the body such as armpits, feet’s and other sweat prone parts. Another subgroup of deodorant is the antiperspirants, these substances prevent excessive sweat as well as controls odor.
Whichever type you decide to go with, be sure to have all necessary information vital for it uses. In recent times, rumors have it that some health risks are associated with using antiperspirants and deodorants. Many claims have it that most deodorants contain aluminum which is hazardous to health and is one of the causes of breast cancer and Alzheimer’s.
