In the hot summer, many people use antiperspirant products in order to avoid the embarrassment of sweat.

The Consumer Council today (15th) published a new issue of the monthly "Choice", which tested 11 antiperspirants and deodorants on the market. The results showed that the overall sample deodorant performance was satisfactory, but the antiperspirant performance between samples was very good. Because of the unevenness, half of the samples have only 2 points or less.

In addition, 2 of the compressed spray antiperspirant products are likely to leave marks on the surface of clothes after use. Among them, Dove "Original" spray is 2.5 points, and Nivea "Back & White Invisible" is only 1.5 points. The most obvious in each sample makes it easy for consumers to abandon clothes with stains.

Antiperspirant and deodorant products (provided by the Consumer Council)

The Consumer Council placed weighed absorbent pads under the armpits of 20 female testers for 3 consecutive days. After 15 minutes of cycling, the testers measured the weight of the absorbent pads after absorbing sweat to calculate each sample. The antiperspirant effect.

In the test, the Consumer Council found that the antiperspirant performance of the 9 antiperspirant samples was variable. Among them, the antiperspirant performance of 4 antiperspirants was not as satisfactory, and the antiperspirant performance score was only 1 to 2 points.

Among the 7 roll-on antiperspirant products, Dove Original and Aishi have relatively weak antiperspirant performance, and have relatively little sweat reduction. They only received 1 point and 1.5 points, respectively. As for the Fa brand of Whitening & Care Antiperspirant Get 2 points; in addition, among the 2 compressed spray antiperspirant products, "Nivea" Black & White Invisible only has 1.5 points.

In addition, the two deodorant samples are not used for antiperspirant, so their ingredients do not contain aluminum compounds, and the function of inhibiting sweat secretion is relatively weak. The antiperspirant performance scores are only 2 and 1 points respectively.

Wearing dark tops and using antiperspirants may leave marks

The test also found that combining the results of unwashed cotton and polyester fabrics, the performance of the Black & White Invisible compressed spray pack "Nivea" was the most inferior, with only 2 points overall, while the roll-on antiperspirant "Fa" The overall score is only 2.5 points. Those who like to wear dark tops should pay attention. However, after all the tested fabrics are washed, the residual stains are less than before they are not washed, which shows that the washing process can help wash away the residual stains on the samples. .

The Consumer Council stated that when purchasing antiperspirant products, in addition to paying attention to their effectiveness, they should also consider whether the products comply with the principles of sustainable environmental protection.

With reference to European environmental packaging requirements for washable products, measure the usable amount of each sample and the ratio of packaging to product.

4 sample packages do not list ingredients

The Consumer Council also found that 4 of the tested samples did not specify the ingredients on the packaging, and 3 of them were antiperspirants. Although the ingredient information of 2 of the samples was clearly listed on the product webpage, it failed to do so. Let consumers know important information from the packaging immediately; and 1 deodorant is only on its plastic container, and its ingredients are indicated in Japanese, which is generally difficult for local consumers to understand. In addition, all antiperspirant samples do not indicate the content of the ingredients used .

The Consumer Council believes that although there is currently no requirement for cosmetics to be labeled with ingredient information, ingredient labeling is important consumer information. Manufacturers should increase the transparency of product information, such as whether it contains antiperspirants, preservatives, or fragrance ingredients that make their skin allergic , Let consumers know what they choose.
