GQ recently posted a guide to picking out a Deodorant vs. perspirant (think odor vs. wetness). One of the feature products on their list of products is – Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant, which is listed as one of the best for your pits. Turns out, its one of the best deodorants out there. See an excerpt of the article below and read the full article here.
Think about the last time you bought a new deodorant: Was it because the blue cap spoke to you? Or the scent seemed nice? Despite the fact that (most) guys use it daily, we spend similar amounts of time picking out pit protection as we do toilet bowl cleaner. (So, none.) But different formulas are made for different types of guys, which means you could be a lot less sweaty/smelly this summer if you get the right stick.
First—the difference between a deodorant and antiperspirant:
Deodorants fight odor by killing the bacteria that makes sweat smelly. Antiperspirants stop wetness by blocking your sweat ducts, usually with aluminum salts. (You’re thinking—didn’t I hear aluminum is bad for you? Some worry that it could be absorbed by the skin and lead to disease, but the National Cancer Institute says there’s no evidence of this.) If you’ve got problems with both odor and wetness, look for an antiperspirant/deodorant.
