The human body passes out waste through the skin pores as sweat. You sweat more in hotter climates and at warmed parts of your body, like the underarms and pubic region. Sweat isn’t inherently stinky. In fact, it’s nearly odorless. The stench comes from bacteria that break down one of two types of sweat on your skin.
A deodorant is applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits, feet, and other areas of the body. Deodorants are often alcohol-based some antibacterial power to temporarily kill bacteria stop the stink before it starts.
Deodorants may contain perfume fragrances or natural essential oils intended to mask the odor of perspiration. For example like this natural and vegan deodorant from Tuul with natural essential oils.

And then there are antiperspirants…
Maybe you live in the county with a warmer and humid climate then many other countries. Then you know, one tends to find oneself sweating profusely at different times of the day. In this case you better use antiperspirants.
They are a subgroup of deodorants which affect odor as well as prevent sweating by affecting sweat glands. Maybe you already used this kind of a deodorant? Antiperspirants don’t actually stop the sweating process; they attempt to stop or significantly reduce perspiration and thus reduce the moist climate in which bacteria thrive. Antiperspirants are typically applied to the underarms, while deodorants (like Tuul) may also be used on feet and other areas in the form of body sprays.
Using antiperspirants helps reduce the sweating, sweat patches on clothes and the odor that comes with accumulated sweat after a period of time. For the sake of yourself and those around you, you should use deodorant every day. This keeps you smelling and feeling fresh.
