  • Q:

    What is non-antiperspirant deodorant?

    A:

    Deodorant that is not an antiperspirant does not keep a person from sweating, but does mask, reduce or eliminate the odor associated with perspiration. Non-antiperspirant deodorant works by neutralizing the odor-producing bacteria found in sweat. Non-antiperspirant deodorant typically does not contain aluminum, which is the active ingredient in antiperspirant.
