Deodorant vs Antiperspirant
Of the two types of sweat glands only the apocrine glands secrete the "smelly" sweat. The two most common products to prevent that smell are deodorants and antiperspirants - and YES, there is a difference between them. While both contain chemicals that, when accumulated in excess, can be harmful to humans, each use a different mechanism to reduce body odor. Deodorants are usually alcohol-based & reduce body odor by temporarily killing the bacteria that causes the odor. Antiperspirants, on the other hand, are almost always aluminum-based & designed to create a physical plug that prevents sweat from reaching the skin's surface.
The human body appears to have no biological use for aluminum, however, high concentrations of it interferes with metabolism of several metal ions essential to our health. Kidneys can eliminate aluminum from our bodies effectively, provided it's within an acceptable concentration. Excess aluminum is deposited in various tissues including muscle, liver, heart, bone, and brain.
