All about roll-on deodorants

The more you understand your skin products, the better they work for you. Find out everything you wanted to know about roll-on deodorant here.

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.

Convenient deodorants

Roll-on deodorants combat nasty smells in one quick sweep across your underarm. This makes them perfect for on the go and an ideal companion for the gym. And the fresh feeling lasts for hours.

How often should you apply roll on deodorant?

There are no set rules about how often to apply roll on deodorant. It really comes down to personal preference. Having said that, it is a good idea to reapply after every time you shower. As a rule of thumb, if you start to notice any unpleasant odour, you want to reach for a strong deodorant.

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.
