It’s no wonder one of the biggest spoke about topics in the U.K is the weather! One minute the sun is shining bright and the next it’s pouring down, be it Summer or winter, the weather can change in an instant. During Summer months the weather can become very clammy, even when it’s raining or blowing a Gale and this often makes me feel very sweaty and muggy.
Everyone sweats, usually with heat or over exhursion. Sweating is the body’s way of controlling temperature so that we don’t overheat.
Do you know the differences between anti persperant and deodorants? Up until recently I assumed they did the same thing under different names, but no I was totally wrong. –
Antiperspirants protect against sweating whilst deodorants help correct body odours. Most antiperspirants work by partially blocking the sweat ducts. Most antiperspirants also possess some deodorising properties; in the case of ODABAN® this is useful in keeping the skin in good condition. Deodorants are applied frequently whilst antiperspirants vary in the way they are applied
And this is the Odaban antiperspirant.
This is a 30ml travel size pump action spray that can be purchased is boots and many other stores.
Odaban needs to be applied to dry skin only as it works to keep the skin dry and sweat free. The way it actually works differs from other anti persperant products out there. I don’t really understand the science behind it myself so I managed to copy a paragraph or two from the Odaban website.
“Radio-isotope tests have shown that the active ingredients of ODABAN® do not stop the sweat glands from working. The drying effect of ODABAN® is produced by poral “plugs,” formed from a combination of aluminium and skin proteins.
The insolubility of the aluminium / protein complex formed is such that there is absolutely no absorption of aluminium through the skin into the blood stream. ODABAN® is therefore completely safe to use on a long-term basis and even during pregnancy.”
Lots more information about Odaban can be found over on their website. There is even a reason as to why it comes as a pump spray instead of the usual aerosols or roll on’s.
Odaban is a head to toe versatile product meaning it can be used for many areas on the body, including the face, feet, hands and the usual sweaty areas. It has a light scent which is ever so slightly minty but seems to be unperfumed as the perfumed versions can cause irritations. It is not a product that needs constantly spraying. The back of the bottle recommends using once or twice a week but personally I don’t really see anything wrong with using it once daily.
Odaban prices vary but usually between £7-£10 per bottle.
