Sweat is not always the same. In fact, sweat can be very different depending on its trigger. Physical exertion and high temperatures, for instance, make you sweat – and smell – differently than high amounts of mental stress would. When stress hits, an antiperspirant containing not only aluminium chlorohydrate but also zinc has your back (or your armpits). Zinc can have a soothing, cleaning and healing effect on human skin. More importantly: It can reduce the production of sebum, which can lead to less sweat-induced odors under stressful circumstances. Thus, an antiperspirant containing an antibacterial zinc complex is designed especially for covering the unpleasant effects of stress-induced sweating. So when the going gets tough, zinc is king.
