All about roll-on deodorants
How do roll-on deodorants work?
Roll-on deodorants deliver a gentle liquid or wet formula to your delicate underarm area. Dispensed from a rolling ball, the formula ensures even coverage and convenience.
Unlike roll-on antiperspirants, roll-on deodorants do not aim to stop you sweating. Instead, they combat the bacteria to do away with underarm odour.
Getting more scientific, the bacteria that lives on the surface of your armpit skin digests the fats and proteins in your perspiration to produce a smelly byproduct we know as body odour.To keep you smelling fresh, strong deodorants combat this bacteria and slow down its growth.
Comparing roll-on deodorants
Deodorant vs antiperspirant – what is the difference?
Many women confuse deodorant with antiperspirant or don’t know the difference. Let’s clear up the debate once and for all.
Put simply, antiperspirants stop you sweating and smelling, while deodorants stop the smell caused by sweat.If you have problems with wet patches under your arms, you want an antiperspirant, such as NIVEA Dry Confidence Deodorant Roll-on. But if you are just worried about body odour, you want to treat your pits to the floral fragrance of the NIVEA Double Effect Violet Senses Roll-on deodorant formula.
