What is the difference between antiperspirants and deodorants?
How do antiperspirants work?
Most long-lasting antiperspirants work by temporarily blocking the sweat glands on the surface of the skin so that less sweat can pass through.
Deodorants, on the other hand, target the smell associated with sweat. They contain alcohol or other high-performance active ingredients that are alcohol-free.
People with easily irritated skin may choose products without alcohol. Alcohol-free products such as NIVEA Dry Comfort Plus Antiperspirant Stick or NIVEA Fresh Natural Deodorant Roll-on keep skin happy while providing lasting freshness.
Just like classic deodorants, antiperspirants come in all sorts of different scents and even fragrance free. Pick the scent to match your mood, such as NIVEA Stress Protect Spray or another fresh scent.
Protection – even in stressful situations
Tips for reducing excessive sweating and unwanted odours
Apply our antiperspirant such as NIVEA Stress Protect 48h Antiperspirant Roll-on in the morning and reapply throughout the day, if necessary.
Be kind to your skin: Wearing breathable, natural fabrics and choosing bed linin made of natural fabrics rather than synthetics are great ways to help the skin keep cool naturally. Similarly, layering up rather than relying on one thick jumper helps your body to control its temperature.
Choosing the best antiperspirant for you
Which antiperspirant is the best for me?
If you tend to excess sweating, it is important to choose a strong antiperspirant that lasts for up to 48 hours.
With antiperspirant sprays, roll-ons and sticks, there are so many options to choose from.
On the days when you are in a hurry, you might want to reach for the antiperspirant spray.
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to format. Some women prefer the feel of a roll-on, while others like the texture of antiperspirant sticks.
The good news is that each application format is as effective and easy to use as the next.

Aluminium salts – what you need to know
Aluminum salts reduce sweat flow in the underarm area by constricting the upper part of sweat glands. They also help to reduce the amount of bacteria that cause the smell associated with sweat.
Like any other ingredients used in cosmetics, aluminium salts are strictly regulated and subject to stringent safety controls and scientific testing. So whether you prefer conventional antiperspirants or aluminium-free deodorants, you can feel confident in the knowledge they are all safe for your body. Try the NIVEA range to find the best antiperspirant or deodorant for you.
