Sweat is normally odourless, however naturally occurring bacteria on our underarm feeds on the sweat even after showering, if left unchecked may lead to bad body odour.

Deodorant usage in Kenya

Over 60% of men & women in Kenya do not use any deodorant or antiperspirant and believe that showering and use of perfume is enough to protect them from sweat and body odour.

Deodorants vs. antiperspirants

Deodorants kill the bacteria that decompose the sweat and mask body odour. They contain alcohol and fragrance that serves this purpose. They do not control or reduce amount of sweat. AP’s kill the bacteria, control sweat and mask the odour. (All AP’s are Deodorants but not all deodorants are AP’s).

Why Rexona?

Rexona being an AP has the ability to keep you dry and smelling fresh all day long. It is a dual gender brand. RFW Range constitutes: Shower Clean, Cotton and Powder. RFM Range constitutes: Active, Xtra Cool and Quantum.

Antiperspirants and white marks

The best way to prevent the white marks is to apply the AP onto the underarms and to allow it to dry thoroughly before dressing up. The white marks are caused by the active ingredient in the AP. (Aluminium Chloro-hydrate ACH).

Antiperspirants safety

They have been used for more than 50yrs and the overwhelming weight of evidence indicates that they are safe and effective.

The companies that produce DEO’s and AP’s spend a considerable amount of time and money evaluating the safety and effectiveness of their products well before they reach the shelves. This is the case with Rexona as well.

Myths

Deos are harmful to the skin

The companies that produce DEO’s and AP’s spend a considerable amount of time and money evaluating the safety and effectiveness of their products well before they reach the shelves. This is the case with Rexona as well.

Antiperspirants and toxins

Myth: AP’s prevent the body from excreting toxins from below the armpits-the body deposits them below the arms since it cannot sweat them out.

Fact: Even if toxins were concentrated in the armpit, they would drain away from the breasts towards the neck and back into the circulation.

Fact 2: The organ charged by getting rid of toxins in the body is the liver and not the skin.

Antiperspirants and breast cancer

Myth: The use of AP’s causes cancer and especially for women.

Fact: 40-50% of breast cancers occur in the upper outside quadrant of the breast area. This is not due to AP’s use but due to the fact that most breast tissue is situated here.

Myth: Ingredients from AP’s can penetrate the skin and accumulate in the breast tissue, potentially damaging DNA and leading to breast cancer.

Fact: There is no evidence that they accumulate in breast tissue, or that they affect human DNA. In fact, Aluminium is one of the most common elements on earth, and one that humans come into contact with everyday.

Antiperspirants and shaving

Myth: AP’s cause darkening of the underarms.

Fact: The darkening of the skin is caused by many factors , some of which include: genetic, hormonal and metabolic factors through to inflammation as a result of physical (shaving, plucking or tweezing underarm hair) or chemical insult.
