Staying Fresh and Clean: Antibacterial Deodorant
It’s not sweat that smells.
You may notice that when you become sweaty say from exercising, it’s not actually whilst you are sweating that you get the smell of Body Odour. The smell comes at the point where the sweat has dried and the bacteria on your armpits combine to give off the strong scent of Body Odour.
Before we explore antibacterial deodorants, let's get familiar with the science behind body odour. Our underarms are home to a vast community of bacteria. When we sweat, these bacteria break down sweat molecules, producing unpleasant odours. Deodorants and antiperspirants work by masking or reducing sweat and neutralising odour.
The Antibacterial Advantage
So, what sets antibacterial deodorants apart? Here are some key advantages:
Targeting Bacteria: Antibacterial deodorants specifically aim to reduce the population of odour-causing bacteria in your underarms. By doing so, they address the root cause of body odour.
Extended Freshness: Some users report that antibacterial deodorants offer longer-lasting odour protection compared to traditional deodorants.
Natural Ingredients: Many antibacterial deodorants feature natural antibacterial agents like tea tree oil, witch hazel, or coconut oil, avoiding potentially harmful chemicals.
How Antibacterial Deodorants Work
Antibacterial deodorants work through the inclusion of antibacterial agents, such as:
Aluminum Compounds: Some antibacterial deodorants contain aluminum salts that not only reduce sweat but also have antibacterial properties.
Natural Antibacterials: Essential oils like tea tree oil, lavender oil, and eucalyptus oil are known for their antibacterial properties.
Silver Compounds: Certain deodorants contain silver-based compounds that can kill odor-causing bacteria.
Are They Effective?
The effectiveness of antibacterial deodorants can vary from person to person. Factors like the type and concentration of antibacterial agents, individual body chemistry, and lifestyle can influence their performance.
Should You Make the Switch?
Deciding whether to switch to an antibacterial deodorant depends on your personal preferences and needs. If you're looking for a natural and potentially more skin-friendly solution to combat body odour, they're worth a try. However, it's essential to consider your specific skin type and any potential allergies to the ingredients.
Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant works differently.
The Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant serves as an Antibacterial Deodorant. The unique natural formula coupled with the antibacterial and anti-fungal qualities of the ingredients such as coconut oil, lavender, tea tree and sodium bicarbonate mean that your armpits can stay bacteria free all day whilst smelling fresh too.We want you to sweat, you should be sweating, it’s a toxin release. What we don’t want is you to smell because that’s just anti-social! That’s where using an antibacterial deodorant saves the day. It eliminates the body odour whereas common antiperspirant deodorants work by blocking the sweat pores and not allowing the sweat through. We don’t advise using antiperspirant.
