Back to basics - how does deodorant work?
What is deodorant?
Deodorant is a skincare product that helps to keep your underarms smelling fresh. Rather than stopping sweat like antiperspirant, deodorant works on the bacteria on the skin to stop the tell-tale odour escaping from your pits.
When we perspire, this bacteria digests the fats and proteins in our sweat. The result is the unpleasant smell we have come to associate with sweat.
To help you feel confident and fresh all day, our beautiful NIVEA deodorant scents neutralise odours to keep sweat smells at bay.
