What does deodorant do to stop you from sweating?



  1. 0 Votes

    Many deodorants are also antiperspirant. The active ingredient in an antiperspirant is almost always an aluminum based compound like aluminum chloride. The aluminum is drawn into the cells that line the sweat glands (eccrine-gland ducts). Water is drawn in with the aluminum, swelling the cells and closing the ducts so that sweat cannot be released. As the water inside and outside the cells reach equilibrium, water begins to release from inside the cells. This is usually when one needs to reapply the antiperspirant.
