Which Deodorant is Best For Me?

According to a study, two in three women regularly use a deodorant. Do you prefer roll-ons, sprays, atomisers or sticks? Read on to find out which deodorant suits you best.

The right deodorant for every type

NIVEA Pure & Natural Action Roll-on – effective deodorant protection without aluminium

Did you know that NIVEA Pure & Natural Action Roll-on contains absolutely no aluminium? The Fresh product range therefore contains the first roll-on which effectively inhibits the growth of odour-forming bacteria using an antibacterial formula, and what’s more, it does this without using aluminium. 

The nature-identical active ingredient BIO-FLORINE® in Pure & Natural Action provides the optimal combination of mild NIVEA® care and effective deodorant protection, allowing your skin to breathe freely! And of course, the fragrance of Fresh Pure, Natural and Flower, as well as the men’s fragrances Active and Ocean, are also available as a deodorant spray.

Mild protection for sensitive skin – NIVEA Sensitive

The NIVEA Powder Touch deodorants such as NIVEA Pearl Beauty Roll-on provide you with up to 48 hours of reliable deodorant protection. The mild care formula also ensures that your skin does not become irritated and stays smooth and beautiful instead.

Deodorant – myths that just won’t go away

People say a lot of things about deodorants. But do these deodorant beliefs really reflect reality? We’ll shed some light on them here!

Sweating makes you slim and sweat smells… or does it?

Do you think sweat smells bad? That’s not quite true. In fact, fresh sweat is absolutely odourless. It is only after it has been on the skin for some time and bacteria multiply there that the bad smell starts. As bacteria thrive in the moist areas of skin under your arms, these areas are in particular need of deodorant protection. 

There is also a persistent rumour that sweating makes you slim. If only that were true! Unfortunately this belief is wrong. When we sweat, we only lose water – not fat. The weight loss is balanced out even after taking a drink break. 

Belief number three: It’s not just sport that makes us sweat – spicy food has the same effect. There is some truth to this rumour! Hot spices boost our metabolism and promote the circulation. The body reacts to this by producing more sweat.

Do deodorants leave stains on our clothing?

Antiperspirants can leave stains, especially under our arms. NIVEA Black & White Clear protects black and white clothing from white residues and yellow discolouration

NIVEA explains deodorant myths. Which are true and which are just rumours?

  • If you take a cold shower, you won’t sweat. This is only true in the short term. A cold shower certainly does cool the body down, but the body balances out the temperature after a short time.
  • If you use deodorants on freshly shaved skin, you risk getting razor burn. Wrong: razor burn is not caused by deodorants, but because sensitive skin is irritated by shaving. Use a shaving foam or shaving gel to protect your skin. You should then go for a deodorant without alcohol, such as NIVEA Dry Comfort Spray. Nevertheless, avoid applying antiperspirant for a while after shaving.
  • Another belief: Deodorants and antiperspirants block the pores in the skin. In fact, aluminium-free deodorants work on the surface of the skin, neutralising odour-forming bacteria. In contrast, the antiperspirant ingredients constrict the pores for a limited lime to reduce sweating. This ensures a fresh feeling and has absolutely no negative effects on your skin. It can continue to breathe freely.
