Odaban

Hi Dokter

Ek het gehoor van Odaban, en dit so twee maande terug begin gebruik, en dit werk goed. Nou die dag toe onthou ek egter van n e-pos wat ek n hele rukkie terug gelees het, oor anti-persperante en dat dit moontlik die kliere onder jou arm kan irriteer (of so iets) en dan kan laat swel en kanker veroorsaak. Nou is ek bekommerd en ek is nie seker of ek dit moet gebruik nie. Le daar enige waarheid in die e-pos, kan anti-persperante gevaarlik wees? Ek neem aan Odaban is n baie sterk anti-persperant, daarom wil ek veral versigtig en seker wees.

Dankie

Tania

Dear Tania,

The reason why Odaban is so effective is not because of a higher concentration of the active ingredient but because of the unique way of manufacturing the product. Odaban is the only antiperspirant manufactured without the use of water, it is the water that makes other products acidic and can therefore irritate the skin.

Odaban''s active ingredient is bound immediately with skin protein to form partial " poral plugs"  and there is absolutely no absorption into the blood stream. It is safe for long term use and even during pregnancy.

Thank you Dr. Bets for providing the informative link.
