Body odour and excessive sweating can leave people feeling uncomfortable and embarrassed. Eucerin has responded to the need for anti-perspirant products with its carefully formulated deodorant sprays and roll-ons, including aluminium-free deodorants, which have been designed to mask undesirable scents and provide long-lasting relief from unnecessary secretion.
Sweat itself does not smell, but secretions within it can be broken down by foreign bodies, resulting in often unpleasant aromas that need treatment with roll-on deodorants or sprays. Aluminium Chlorohydrate (ACH) works at the skin's surface layers, reducing the amount of sweat that occurs there while also acting as a barrier against germs and bacteria. A decrease in sweat on the outer skin, when combined with the neutralisation of the microbiological organisms that act upon it, drastically minimises unwanted odours.
For a longer-lasting effect, Eucerin also employs Aluminium Chloride (AC); this takes action on a deeper level, inhibiting the production of sweat at the source, which allows antiperspirant deodorants to maintain their effect over extended periods. Eucerin's deodorant sticks and deodorant sprays last up to 72 hours, for comprehensive relief from body odour and extreme sweating. Eucerin's anti-perspirant solutions are free from alcohol, colorants and parabens, making them suitable for regular use and sensitive skin types.
The key to reducing body odour is to minimise sweating, which can be done with Eucerin's innovative blend of Aluminium Chlorohydrate and Aluminium Chloride. These work quickly and efficiently, with effects that can last for several days. As these products are recommended for daily use, soft and gentle deodorants are needed to prevent skin irritation.
Aluminium-free deodorant is also available for those with allergies – these employ Polyquaternium-16, a salt that eliminates odour-causing bacteria on the skin's surface layers and, in turn, excessive sweating and unsavoury scents. This remedy is especially useful for extremely delicate skin, particularly those who suffer from atopic dermatitis.
