Antiperspirant deodorant is a very important consumer product in the US. Even though antiperspirant and deodorants have different functions, these terms are often used interchangeably.
However, there is a lot of difference in what they do. Antiperspirants help in controlling the sweat, so as to prevent the odor caused by the bacteria accumulated in that region. Deodorants, on the other hand, can be used throughout the body and they eliminate odor from the body. But, it does not last long in case the deodorant is without an antiperspirant. In such a case, the sweat will null the effect of the deodorant in an hour or so. Antiperspirants form a gel like plug over the skin so as to prevent as much sweat from getting out as much it can. This prevents the wetness and further, the accumulation of bacteria which actually result in the odor.
