Frequently asked questions

What is the best deodorant to stop sweating? Plus Icon

Regular deodorants prevent body odor but they don’t reduce sweating. Antiperspirants contain aluminum-based compounds that block sweat. You can use any version – spray, gel and roll-on – as long as they contain antiperspirant.

Why does sweat smell? Plus Icon

Sweat itself isn’t smelly at all. Actually, it is your apocrine glands that produce sweat that is high in protein. This results in bacteria breaking it down easily, and as a result is the cause bad body odours.
