Unilever Unveils Deodorant and Antiperspirant Formats for Ultimate Freshness On the Go

New Deodorant Wipes and Mini Dry Sprays Help People Maximize Each Moment of the Day


ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, New Jersey, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Unilever – the global leader in deodorant and antiperspirant innovation – continues to meet the ever-changing needs of shoppers by expanding its portfolio to include formats designed for on-the-go lifestyles.

Introducing new deodorant wipes

Unilever’s new Deodorant Wipes – on shelves now – offer people a smart way to stay feeling fresh as they go from one activity to the next.  With 24-hour odor protection, the new Deodorant Wipes are available from five brands – Dove, Dove Men+Care, Degree® Women,  Degree® Men and AXE. Ideal for discreet touch-ups to freshen underarms, neck and chest, Unilever’s Deodorant Wipes are pre-moistened, alcohol-free and come packaged with built-in lids to ensure freshness down to the last wipe.

“Our research* shows that nearly 50% of people are applying their deodorant multiple times every single day,” said Dawn Hedgepeth, General Manager and Vice President of Unilever Deodorants, Men’s Grooming and Hand and Body Lotion.  She continued, “Our new Deodorant Wipes provide an easy-to-use format for wiping away sweat and freshening up. There are countless moments where these wipes can provide a fresh re-set – activities like working out, before a big meeting, during travel, on the way to meet up with friends or just running around the house.”

The wipes, which provide a superior and hygienic on-the-go experience, are also ideal for waterless activities like camping and hiking. In addition, the new wipes can be used alone or as a fresh complement to one’s antiperspirant or deodorant of choice.
