Features

Sweat and Odor control

Mitchum’s sweat and odor control provides 48-hour protection against sweating and bad odor. Body odor gives off when the acidic sweat breaks down the bacteria on the skin. There are different kind of bacteria living on the skin and although not all of them are bad for you, some are. Especially when sweat breaks them down. Contrary to popular belief, sweat itself is not, or barely detectable by the human nose. If you can reduce or eliminate sweating in certain areas, there will be no bad body odor.

Aloe

Mitchum’s Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant contains aloe vera, a cactus plant from the Liliaceae family that has numerous properties beneficial to the skin. Various studies have been conducted on the skin benefits of aloe, and most of them have concluded that such benefits exist, proving aloe to be an excellent ingredient for cosmetic products.

One of its clear benefits is its positive impact on sunburn. The outermost layer of the skin is called epithelial, and it acts as a protective cover for the deeper layers of the skin. The aloe can replenish that outer layer, making it healthier. In addition to this, the plant essence acts as a natural moisturizer, without making it greasy or inducing any additional sweating. The third positive property of aloe is its advantageous impact on acne.

There are two hormones in the plant material, Auxin and Gibberellins. These two help to promote wound healing, and therefore treat acne in the stages where needed the most. Although extremely rare, acne can get infected, to the point where they require surgical intervention. You can develop acne anywhere on your skin, including your armpits, but the Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant can help you counter the effects.

In addition to these properties, aloe is an excellent, nutrient-rich substance that promotes good health and has anti-inflammatory properties. It contains 75 different nutrients that our body can use, making it one of the best basic ingredients of cosmetic products, including deodorants.

No more white marks

Some antiperspirants leave white marks on your clothing, and it is one of the more annoying features of deodorants. The Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant contains ingredients that do not stain your clothes.

Dermatologically tested

Through testing, dermatologists try to determine the adverse effects of substances on the skin. It is crucial to not allow any products to enter the market that hasn’t undergone thorough dermatological testing, and the Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant passes that test with excellence.

Alcohol-free

Alcohol is not good for the human body – certainly not from a health point of view -, and it is not good for the skin either. It dehydrates it in two ways. Firstly by lowering the natural levels of your anti-diuretic hormone. Secondly, if you are drinking too much and end up vomiting, you deplete your body’s fluid storages and dehydrate it even further.

Pros

  • Powerful sweat and odor control
  • 48-hours effect
  • Less white marks
  • Alcohol-free
  • Dermatologically tested

Cons

  • In rare cases, the roller can fail

Summary

The Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant provides powerful sweat and odor control. By stopping sweating it does not allow the bacteria to be broken down, which would result in bad odor. The deodorant has a 48-hour effect, similarly to the company’s previous products, but the old formula, although highly effective, wasn’t as good as the new one. The aloe was a huge step in the right direction, providing numerous skin benefits.

Aloe nourishes the skin by supporting its outermost layer, in addition to helping it to deal with acne. It has anti-inflammatory and wound-healing qualities, both of which come in handy for a product that you use on your skin. In addition, aloe is a natural moisturizer and it hydrates the skin without making it greasy. Another positive effect of aloe is its nutrient-rich nature that allows it to nourish the skin.

The Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant minimizes white stains as well and features a dermatologically tested formula that rules out any major adverse reactions in healthy people. The formula was reworked to make the deodorant even more efficient, and thanks to the alcohol-free profile, it offers virtually no downsides. Once you put it on, you can expect an odorless existence for up to 48 hours.

Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant vs. Degree Men Clinical Antiperspirant Deodorant

The Degree Men Clinical Antiperspirant deodorant is a prescription-strength antiperspirant deodorant. It provided 24-hour protection for the skin while reducing underarm wetness. It has certain ingredients that act as a moisturizer, and protect the skin against irritation. It features a technology called MOTIONSENSE, which supposedly keeps you fresh even while you move. It does this with the help of clever microcapsules that burst when there is friction, exposing the skin to a new wave of freshness.

Verdict

The Mitchum Anti-Perspirant wins this comparison. There are two main reasons why we came to this conclusion, the 48-hour window, and the aloe vera as a major ingredient. 48-hour is very good for an anti-perspirant deodorant, and even though this could vary depending on personal factors such as activity level or weather, it is still a strong advantage of the product.

Even if it is 36, or even 28 hours for you, it is still more effective than the Degree Men Clinical that offers 24-hour efficiency. The aloe vera was the second deciding factor, and it is more than a nice extra. This substance has various proven benefits to the skin, and it tips the scale in favor of the Mitchum Anti-perspirant & Deodorant.
