Are you a woman who prefers using antiperspirants marketed to men?
Dermatologist Dr Mohamed Ebrahim says most people are under the impression that male antiperspirants are stronger, effective and last longer than those meant for females.
However, Ebrahim says the ingredients put in these products are all the same for males and females but the marketing system is different.

Women have the perception that the male antiperspirant is stronger because men sweat a lot but that is not correct.— Dr Mohamed Ebrahim, Dermatologist
