What is the difference between deodorant and anti-perspirant?
Anti-perspirants are made to stop you from sweating. Ingredients like aluminum salts are used to plug the sweat glands to reduce the amount of sweat you produce. Sweat is odorless and colorless but creates an odor when it comes into contact with your skin’s bacteria. Deodorants are used to minimize body odor.
What is the skin microbiome?
The skin microbiome is also known as skin flora and microbiota. A microscope would show you that our skin has its own environment of over 1000 different types of bacteria and other microorganisms living on it. They serve a very important purpose acting as our first line of defense against pathogens reducing the chance for infections. They also keep the skin barrier intact, protect it from inflammation, balance the pH of the skin, among so many other things.
How long does it take to work?
Kinkō will offer some level of protection immediately but getting your skin’s microbiome in balance is no easy task! For some, it will work instantly. For others, whose microbiome might be way out of whack, it may take up to several weeks to get optimum results.
