Did you know that all of our deodorants are actually anti-perspirants? Löwengrip’s Skin Therapist and Head Trainer Emelie Focklin explains the differences between anti-perspirants and deodorants – and why you might prefer the former!

Hi, Emelie! So, what’s the difference between an anti-perspirant and a deodorant?
Hi! A deodorant’s main task is to minimize unpleasant odor or to counteract the growth of bacterias. An anti-perspirant, on the other hand, is enriched with aluminium salts which blocks the pores to reduce sweating. Hence the name anti-perspirant: thay actually prevent you from sweating. If you want a product that prevents you from sweating rather than to just mask the odor, you'd might prefer an anti-perspirant over a deodorant. 

Are anti-perspirants suitable for sensitive skin?
- All of Löwengrip's deodorants (which are in case actuallt anti-perspirants!) are developed to suit sensitive skin. They're also enriched with lots of nourishing ingredients. Soothing allantoin and moisturising second generation shea nut (that doesn't leave a sticky feel on your skin!) are two of the many nourishing ingredients found in our deodorant collection. 

Which deodorant is the best fit for sensitive skin?  
- If your skin is extra sensitive, I’d recommend Sensitive – Deodorant which is formulated with anti-irrative ingredients suitable for extra sensitive or itchy skin.
