Yes, there is a right kind for your body. Before we get started, let's have a look at the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant: "Antiperspirants are over-the-counter deodorants that contain FDA-monograph-approved ingredients that interact with the sweat glands to help stop perspiration,” explains cosmetic chemist Ron Robinson. “Deodorants are products that work to mask underarm odor. They often contain a fragrance or perfume, along with an active ingredient called triclosan that is commonly used and works to prevent bacteria from growing, which in turn helps prevent odor.” Deodorants do not prevent wetness, however antiperspirants do. Application options generally come do to preference.
