Antiperspirants are applied only to certain areas of the body, so they do not affect the process of sweating the body as a whole.
Deodorants do not stop sweating, but kill bacteria and mask the smell. Eliminating the unpleasant smell of the body occurs due to slowing down the decomposition and oxidation of sweat. As deodorant components, various compounds with antimicrobial action are used.
