Frequently asked questions

Clinical protection to fight off excess sweat. The following are the most frequently asked questions about Old Spice Clinical Sweat Defense antiperspirant products

What is the difference between antiperspirant and deodorant?

A. Generally speaking, the difference between antiperspirants and deodorants comes down to their ingredients. In most cases, antiperspirants contain an active aluminum ingredient (which helps with sweat control) and deodorants do not.

How can I decrease excessive underarm sweating?

A. Apply antiperspirant twice a day (in the morning and at night). Why? At night, you sweat at a slower rate, which allows more antiperspirant to sink down into your sweat ducts. Once beneath the surface, the antiperspirant can form a superficial plug to reduce the flow of perspiration. A second application in the morning kicks off your body with an extra dose of sweat protection.

Which Old Spice product will help me fight excessive sweating?

A. First, make sure you’re wearing an antiperspirant, not a deodorant. When it comes to controlling sweat, antiperspirants are more fit for the job because they help fight sweat and get rid of odors. For our best Old Spice sweat protection try Clinical Pure Sport Plus.

How does Old Spice approach product safety?

A. Safety is at the heart of everything we do. Before we market a new product, we go beyond regulatory compliance to ensure every ingredient’s safety through a four-step, science-based process. We use the same process as regulatory agencies around the world, like US FDA, EPA, the EU, the WHO, and others.

Does Old Spice test on animals?

A. We do not test our products on animals anywhere in the world unless required by law, and we are working hard to make animal testing of all consumer products obsolete. We are a proud supporter of #BeCrueltyFree and we’ve invested more than $420 million in developing non-animal testing methods and have advocated for their approval by policy makers around the world. Today, we use more than 50 non-animal alternatives, half of which were invented or co-invented by P&G. We will continue to work with partners like the Humane Society International and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to promote the development of new alternatives and advocate for their public use and adoption to eliminate animal testing.
