Global Deodorant and Antiperspirant Ingredients Market to be Propelled by Increasing Demand of Natural Ingredients


  • Published On : Jan 18, 2016

Most of the deodorants manufactured contain a combination of fragrances and antimicrobials that effectively nullify unpleasant body odor and add an appealing one instead. The deodorant mainly does the former by destroying the odor-producing germs on the skin that are present in human sweat. On the other hand, antiperspirants directly act on the pores near the sweat-producing glands of the body and reduce the body’s ability to sweat. Antiperspirants commonly use pore-blocking agents such as aluminum or modern equivalents.

Controversial use of Aluminum Hinders Global Deodorant and Antiperspirant Ingredients Market

One of the major restraints on the global deodorant and antiperspirant ingredients market currently is the use of aluminum in antiperspirants. These products commonly use aluminum salts that block pores and prevent them from sweating and consequently prevent body odor. However, the increasing use of antiperspirants could lead to the deposition of aluminum salts on the skin, which can have negative effects on the consumer’s health. This has hindered the global deodorant and antiperspirant ingredients market to an extent. This market is also restrained by the growing awareness and concern over the use of alcohol in deodorants. Companies in the global deodorant and antiperspirant ingredients market are currently shifting from using alcohol to other alternatives, such as aluminum potassium sulfate, sodium bicarbonate, and caffeine, primarily in antiperspirants.

Nearly 28% of the global deodorant and antiperspirant ingredients market in 2015 was accounted for by alcohol, in terms of ingredients. At the same time, a 10.0% CAGR was demonstrated by fragrances within 2015 and 2021, thus displaying the growing trend of preferring deodorants and antiperspirants due to their scents.
