9 Reasons Why Underarm Deodorant Wipes are Better Than Roll On or Stick
Did you know that there are about 3 million sweat glands on the human body? That 365 million people worldwide suffer from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, and despite women having more sweat glands, men sweat more.
Yes, we all sweat, but male or female there is one thing we have in common. No one wants to be smelly!
Interestingly sweat doesn’t have any smell at all. It is actually the bacteria reacting with the perspiration that creates the odor.
Deodorants and Antiperspirants
Deodorants contain antibacterial ingredients to help neutralize bacteria and may contain perfumes or essential oils to mask the odor.
Antiperspirants, on the other hand, contain active ingredients to reduce sweating by temporarily blocking or shrinking the pores. They also often contain deodorizing ingredients to minimize smell.
The worldwide deodorant and antiperspirant market is huge. In 2018 it is estimated that it will be worth USD$7 billion!
It’s no wonder considering how many different types are on the market. There are deodorants and antiperspirants in roll-on, sticks, crystals, sprays and pastes. There are even underarm deodorant wipes!
What are Deodorant Wipes?
Underarm wipes for sweating are conveniently packaged in single-use sachets. These towelettes come pre-moistened with deodorant or antiperspirant. To use one, simply take it out of the packet, give your armpits a good wipe and then throw it away in the trash.
Why Use Underarm Deodorant Wipes?
Here are nine reasons why wipes for your armpits should be your first choice when looking for a deodorant or antiperspirant option.
1. The Size is Convenient
Because travel deodorant wipes are individually packaged in a small sealed sachet, you can grab a couple and keep them anywhere without worrying that they will dry out. Keep them within easy reach so you can use one whenever you feel the need to freshen up.
Take them traveling, camping, to the gym, hiking, cycling, walking, the possibilities are endless!
2. Wipes are Really Hygienic
Bacteria has no chance to transfer and grow as you use a wipe once and then dispose of it. It’s also important for hygiene that no more than one person use the same wipe.
3. They are Better for the Environment
Look for a deodorant wipe that is compostable and eco friendly and will break down over time.
Generally even though the plastic containers of stick and roll on deodorants are recyclable, they can end up in the trash causing more landfill and damage to the environment.
4. Your Armpits aren’t Left Sticky
Roll on deodorant can be messy and leave your armpits feeling sticky. You often need to let it dry before putting on your clothes.
With a wipe, the liquid dries really quickly meaning you can even use one while still wearing a shirt with sleeves.
5. Wipes are Very Discreet
A quick visit to the restroom means you can pull out a wipe and quickly freshen up. You can even touch up your pits with a quick wipe before you get out of the car or in your seat on an airplane.
It’s a lot easier than lifting up your arm to apply regular roll-on or stick deodorant and waiting for it to dry!
6. You Can Use Wipes to Freshen Up All Over
Check whether the wipe is only suitable for armpits or it can be used all over the body. Some wipes are ok for your neck, chest, back and any other areas of your body prone to sweat.
7. They are Economical and Can be Shared
Save some money and buy your individually packed deodorant wipes in bulk and share packs between your family and friends.
8. You Can Use Underarm Deodorant Wipes to Cool Down
Try keeping a couple of wipes in your cooler bag or refrigerator to refresh your armpits on a hot day.
9. They Keep White Marks off Clothing
Stick and roll-on deodorants have a tendency to leave white residue when it dries on clothing. Because the liquid in deodorant wipes dries so quickly on the skin, you will be less likely to be left with chalky marks on dark clothes.
