Deodorant and antiperspirant: what is the difference?
Deodorant:
Deodorants’ main function is to combat bad body odour, associated with perspiration. Deodorants hide bad odour thanks to their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Some deodorants are called disinfectant deodorants as they contain anti-bacterial ingredients (often alcohol) that “over-ride” the bad body odour produced by perspiration.

Antiperspirant:
Antiperspirants’ main function is to reduce perspiration. Antiperspirants contain an astringent substance (a chemical compound that shrinks or constricts body tissues). Most of the time, the astringent substance used in antiperspirant is aluminium salts, that contract the skin's pores and therefore limit perspiration.
