How we tested

We sent 121 female trialists recruited from our Home Testers register three cans of aerosol antiperspirant with claims of ‘no white marks’. They were instructed to use each aerosol for three days before filling in a questionnaire to rate the product for:

  • Appearance of white marks on skin and clothing.
  • Fragrance.
  • Ease of use.

They then had to give each deodorant they tested an overall score based on the fragrance of the deodorant, its ability to reduce/eliminate white marks and its ease of use. Trialists were asked not to rate the deodorants on their antiperspirant performance as this is difficult to measure with only three days’ use of each product. They were also asked to note any irritation caused to skin or eyes.
