Know the Technical Differences between Deodorants and Antiperspirants

Know the Technical Differences between Deodorants and Antiperspirants
We kind of call everything a deodorant, but technically speaking, antiperspirants and deodorants are two different things. Antiperspirants plug up your pores, which temporarily stems the flow of sweat.
On the other hand, deodorants keep odor-causing bacteria from proliferating. However, most deodorants are also designed to reduce sweat, and many antiperspirants fight smell; there’s a blurry line between the two.
So we purchased both kinds of products and tested them in the same article. We also checked for both odor- and sweat-fighting properties, regardless of whether the item was marketed as an deodorant or antiperspirant.

Top 36 Best Japanese Deodorants Marketed towards Men to Buy Online

We had a group of editors put on pale gray T-shirts (the bane of summer). They applied the deodorants to a single armpit and checked for odor, sweat stains, and longevity. We then ranked the top 56 best Japanese deodorants available online, based on how they performed on our tests.
These first 36 deodorants are marketed towards men. Generally speaking, men secrete more sweat than women; therefore, men’s and women’s deodorants contain deodorizing, pore-blocking, and antimicrobial ingredients in different concentrations. Men’s deodorants also tend to be unscented. Otherwise, they have neutral or spicy smells, like menthol.

Products that Didn’t Make the Cut

And why they didn’t quite make it.

Poor Antiperspirants but Block out Smell for Some Time

Poor Antiperspirants but Block out Smell for Some Time

Dr.Deodorant’s Myouban Spray EX (11) and qdeo’s Gel cCeam (17) received scores of 3.4 for their deodorizing properties. However, both could not contain sweat. And while the Myouban Spray EX lasted a little over six hours, the gel cream barely held out for half a day.


OXY’s Deo Shower (Non Fragrance, 16) cut down on body odor and had a cooling effect to boot. However, it earned only a 2.0 for sweat and lasted at most half a day.


AgDEO 24 MEN’s Deodorant Stick (20) did next to nothing for sweat. It blocked out smell completely for 2 – 3 hours but weakened thereafter.

Works Reasonably Well but Requires Constant Reapplication

Rifurea’s Deodorant Cream Jar (12) and QB’s Medicated Deodorant Bar (14) earned average scores (around a 3.0) as both deodorants and antiperspirants. However, effects only lasted three hours. And while QB’s product is a stick deodorant and easy enough to apply, Rifurea’s deodorant, being cream in a jar, can get messy.

Reduces Sweat Stains but Leaves You Smelling Musty

Benkyo Do’s Medicated Deodorant Cream (13) and exsiu’s Deodorant Cream (15) kept sweat at bay for over half a day. However, Benkyo Do’s product smelled vaguely of ointment and did not completely neutralize odor. exsiu’s product did even worse–it reduced smell, but the change was almost imperceptible.


Gatsby’s -Premium Type- Deodorant Roll On (Unscented, 18) stretched over skin and blocked out sweat. However, it didn’t do much for smell, and it felt too harsh for sensitive skin.


AgDEO 24 MEN’S Deodorant Spray (23) masked, rather than eliminated, odor–and it smelled vaguely medicinal. It did leave our armpits dry-ish for over half a day, however.

Lasts for a Few Hours and Kind of Works on Sweat and Odor…?

LÚCIDO’S Deodorant Stick (19) smelled like hair wax. It wasn’t long-lasting and earned scores of 2.6 and 2.0 as a deodorant and an antiperspirant, respectively.


Likewise, De Ou’s Deodorant Roll On (21) and EXTRA DEOMAX’s Medicated Deodorant Cream (25) earned 2.0s for sweat. De Ou’s product was slightly stronger as a deodorant, receiving a score of 2.2, while EXTRA DEOMAX only received a score of 2.0. Neither will last you through a whole day.

Men’s Bioré’s Deodrant Z Roll on (Unscented, 22), Deonatulle’s Sara Sara Cream (24), N1us’s Я-m Mist (26), ALBA COSME’s Whole Body Deodorant Alum Spray (28), De Ou’s Protect Deo Jam (29), and Sea Breeze’s Deo & Water (Splash Marine, 31) were stuck with a score of 1.0 for sweat. All only somewhat masked smell, and effects could be felt for just half a day or less.


Similarly, wakigard’s Medicated Deodorant (27) did nothing for sweat. It did cover up odor upon application but wore off after a few hours.

Now the Deodorant that Earned a 1.0 for Odor (and Around 2.0s for Everything Else)

Tesaran Clear’s Deodorant Cream (30) left us smelling like B.O. It lasted just a couple of hours, during which it very slightly reigned in sweat.

Both Odoremin’s Deodorant (32) and Odore Mist’s Deodorant (33)–similar names, different companies–scored a 1.0 for sweat. Odoremin got a 1.7 for odor, but Odore Mist couldn’t even do that much–it earned another flat 1.0. Both lasted a couple of hours, but what’s the point?


Gatsby’s -Premium Type- Deodorant Spray (Unscented, 34) and 8×4 MEN’s Roll on Deodorant (Non Fragrance, 35) earned scores of 1.0 or close to 1.0 as deodorants and antiperspirants; they also scored around a 2.0 for longevity.


AgDEO 24 Men’s Deodorant Roll On (36) somehow managed to earn scores of 1.0 across the board.

Products that Didn’t Make the Cut

And why they didn’t quite make it.

Keeps Odors at Bay for Half a Day

Keeps Odors at Bay for Half a Day

Bioré’s Deodorant Z Full Body Spray (Unscented, 11) wasn’t horrible; it just wasn’t amazing. Odors faded–though they didn’t disappear) for about 6 hours. We still sweat the same though.


Likewise, Samourai woman’s Fragrance Deodorant Stick (13) didn’t work as an anti-antiperspirant, though it masked smells with floral and fruity notes. It lasted over half a day.


Ban’s Nano-Ion Block -Premium Label- Roll on Deodorant (Non-Fragrance, 14) and 8×4’s Powder Spray (Non-Fragrance, 15) earned scores of 2.9 and 2.3 for odor, respectively. We smelled relatively fresh for half a day; however, we sweat the entire time.

Somewhat Works on Smells and Sweat, but Doesn’t Last

S-Carat’s Deodorant Stick (Fragrance Free, 12) got odors to fade a bit. While we still sweat some with it on, we didn’t feel sticky. However, a single application only worked for 3 – 4 hours.

Barely Works on Odors, Doesn’t Work on Sweat, and Short-Lived to Boot

Deonatulle’s Sara Sara Cream (16) and Deonatulle’s Soft Stone Double Deodorant (17) both earned a 2.5 for smell and 1.0 for sweat. The cream lasted just slightly longer–3 – 4 hours, compared to the 2 – 3 hours offered by the stick deodorant.


DHC’s Medicated Deodorant Stick (18) and DHC’s Medicated Deodorant Gel (19) managed to earn identical scores across the table–2.1 for smell, 1.0 for sweat, and 2.0 for longevity. The final product, AgDEO 24’s Deodorant Powder Spray XL (20), was stick with similar scores but lasted a grand total of 2 and a half hours.

How We Tested Our Products

Deodorants and antiperspirants should do two things: block out smell and eliminate sweat stains. And they need to last.

Test ①: Odor

Test ①: Odor
We gathered a group of editors and had each apply one deodorant to one armpit. They then went about their lives as usual. Every three hours, they used a special instrument to analyze smell. Then, based on its deodorizing properties, we rated each product on a five-step scale.
Test ①: Odor
We also wanted to see how the deodorants would work retroactively. We prepared several half-dried towels that smelled musty and were teeming with bacteria. We applied the deodorants over the towels, checking whether they could immediately block out odors that had already formed and set in.

Test ②: Sweat

Test ②: Sweat
We had our group of editors put on the dreaded gray T-shirts. They applied the deodorants and, every three hours, checked for sweat stains. We took into account how much each volunteer usually sweat and how well the products were able to hold back the flood.
Test ②: Sweat
We learned that antiperspirants that formed physical barriers over skin were most effective. Creams made up seven of the ten top-ranking items (that held back sweat); they were followed by roll ons.

Test ③: Longevity

Test ③: Longevity
We had our editors look at how well the deodorants were working at the three and six hour marks. They paid attention to how much they had sweat, how much they smelled, and whether skin still felt dry and smooth.
Test ③: Longevity
Stick deodorants performed well, likely because they were thick but absorbed easily into skin.

Tips on How to Choose Japanese Deodorants and Antiperspirants – Buying Guide

Here are two big points to look out for.

① Figure out What Type of Deodorant You Need

There are five main types.

Sprays: For Freshening up Quickly

Sprays: For Freshening up Quickly
Sprays are great if you want to freshen up while you’re out and about or after a workout. Many coat your skin with a powder–or something similar–so you feel smooth and dry. Some also contain cooling ingredients like menthol. And since the applicator doesn’t ever touch your skin, it’s the most hygienic option.
However, effects wear off relatively quickly. Some of the cans also get pretty loud, so if that’s going to bother you, try the applicator out beforehand.

Roll ons: For Smooth and Even Application

Roll ons: For Smooth and Even Application
Roll ons make for smooth application. They’re least likely to leave powder or white stains on clothing. Most contain a lot of ethanol, which makes for a cooling effect.
However, they take time to dry. And if you were to slip on a shirt before it died, then it would stain.

Sticks: For a Balance between Effectiveness and Convenience

Sticks: For a Balance between Effectiveness and Convenience
These are just like glue sticks. The formula is in one giant block; you twist it out of the tube and apply directly to your underarms. They’re as easy to use as roll ons but adhere closely to skin like creams. Stick deodorants are also small and light.
However, they show up white when dry and leave residue behind on clothing.

Creams: For Long Lasting Effects

Creams: For Long Lasting Effects
You work creams into your skin, so effects last a while. They’re worth a try if you struggle with sweat and/or body odor.
You can easily adjust for amount, using just a dab for days spent in an air-conditioned office and slathering on more when you’ll be out camping or hiking. Cream deodorant comes in a wide variety of textures, from thick pastes to watery gels.
Most come in jars or tubes, and you have to apply with your hands. They’re too messy to take on the go, so make sure you put on enough before you leave the house.

Sheets: For Wiping Away Sweat

Sheets: For Wiping Away Sweat
If you need to clean up after a work out or a sweaty night’s sleep, consider getting deodorant wipes. They’re portable, perfect for use in a locker room. Many are also scented, so if you wanted to perk up your mood, you could get one with a citrusy smell; if you wanted to relax, you could look for herbal fragrances.
However, body wipes are normally used to clean your body–at a campsite or the beach, for example–and are rarely used solely as deodorants, so we didn’t test any this time around.

② Consider Various Ingredients and Their Effects

Most ingredients used in deodorants either block sweat, fight bacteria, or eliminate odor. Depending on your specific body chemistry, some formulas will work better than others.

Ingredients for Prolific Sweaters and Those Worried about Sweat Stains

Ingredients for Prolific Sweaters and Those Worried about Sweat Stains
Sweat-blocking ingredients work by clogging sweat glands, essentially locking the floodgates. Below are examples of popular and effective ingredients. Alum, by the way, not only reduces sweat but has antimicrobial and odor-fighting properties.
  • クロルヒドロキシアルミニウム: Chlorhydroxy Aluminum
  • パラフェノールスルホン酸亜鉛: Zinc Para Phenol Sulfonic Acid
  • ミョウバン: Alum
  • 酸化亜鉛: Zinc Oxide

Now, there have been and still are rumors circulating the internet, linking aluminum in deodorants to Alzheimer’s and breast cancer. However, members from the American Cancer Society and Alzhemier’s Association have made clear that there is no definitive evidence behind these claims yet.

Ingredients that Fight Odor-Causing Bacteria

Ingredients that Fight Odor-Causing Bacteria
Antimicrobials eliminate odor by addressing the root of the problem–bacteria. Even if you were to sweat buckets, as long as bacteria growth is contained, you won’t smell like B.O.
Look for the following ingredients:
  • 銀イオン (Ag+): Silver ion (Ag+)
  • イソプロピルメチルフェノール: Isopropyl Methylphenol
  • ミョウバン: Alum
  • 塩化ベンザルコニウム: Benzalkonium Chloride
  • β-グリチルレチン酸: β-Glycyrrhetinic Acid
  • メントール: Menthol

Ingredients that Eliminate Pre-Existing Odors

Ingredients that Eliminate Pre-Existing Odors
Deodorants aren’t only preventive; they can also block smells that have already formed. These contain compounds that react with and neutralize odors. The following are representative examples:
  • 亜鉛華(酸化亜鉛): Zinc Oxide
  • 炭 (活性炭/木炭/竹炭): Charcoal (Activated Carbon/Wood Charcoal/Bamboo Charcoal)
  • 柿渋タンニン: Astringent Tannin
  • 緑茶抽出物 (カテキン): Green Tea Extract (Catechins)
  • 焼ミョウバン: Baking Alum
  • メントール: Menthol
  • 植物抽出エキス: Botanical Extracts

Some deodorants seek to cover up smells rather than neutralize them. If one works for you, then great; however, more often than not, they simply mix with your body odor–and now you smell both naturally and chemically gross. We recommend sampling any deodorant-perfumes before committing.

Is It Safe to Use Deodorant?

Is It Safe to Use Deodorant?
Before all the rumors circulating the internet have you swearing off on antiperspirants altogether, let’s talk more about what these do to your body.
Strictly speaking, it’s not sweat that smells. B.O. is caused by bacteria. However, that bacteria proliferates when you sweat because it feeds off of the nutrients in your sweat and oils and dirt on your skin. That’s why deodorant works best when you apply it over clean skin, where it works to stem the flow of sweat.
Keep in mind that your body sweats to cool down. That’s why you should only ever apply deodorant to your armpits and maybe legs, as they have little to do with overall body temperature. If you use deodorant on other areas, you deprive your body of its ability to regulate temperature, which can lead to heat stroke.

How Do I Tell if I Smell Bad?

How Do I Tell if I Smell Bad?
There’s a few ways. It’s often said that people with stronger body odor have wet earwax. If you’ve ever seen your earwax and it’s sticky and caramel-colored, then you might be prone to smelling rather strongly. If it’s a a bit damp, then you have average body odor. If it’s dry, you don’t really need to worry.
Your clothes are also a good way to check. Yellow stains are a sign of possible body odor.
And while you can’t smell yourself, you can smell your clothing. Next time you shower, don’t throw your clothes in the hamper just yet. Leave them out, cleanse yourself, then come back to sniff your clothing. By the time you step out of the shower, your nose will have been reset, so you can objectively smell yourself.

Summary

We rounded up members from our editing department, purchased the 56 most popular Japanese deodorants, and tested them all.
To be honest, we thought there wouldn’t be much to deodorant–it either works or it doesn’t. But we learned that a lot comes down to personal preference. Do you want something that eliminates sweat stains? Or would you rather focus on odor and let your body regulate temperature as usual? Do you want a spray that cools you down or a stick you can use discreetly in the restroom?
Like it or not, smell’s a huge factor in determining first impressions and personal image. So find yourself a deodorant that a) you’re comfortable using and b) will leave you confident.
