What you need to know about Deodorant vs Antiperspirant

What’s the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant?

For proper context, it is helps to start with the three basic reasons that cause us to sweat. The first is to cool us down when the temperature of wherever we are is hot. The second reason is that the body responds to physical exertion from  exercise and begins sweating to cool us down. The third is different from the other two and is triggered when the body gets stress signals, such as an intense meeting at work, or when you get a text from your significant other that reads, "we need to talk."

Introducing Inspired Deodorant

This month, we’re introducing our new line of Inspired Deodorants. Why “inspired?”

 First and foremost, fine fragrance.  At Fulton & Roark, if it doesn't smell fantastic, we're not interested. So, when we decided to create deodorants, we envisioned a product that did far more than prevent unpleasant odors. We wanted to offer high performance deodorant that smelled as distinguished as our fragrance line. Like in our solid fragrances, we use only the finest essential oils, extracts, and fragrance ingredients to create truly inspired scents that you will be proud to wear, no matter the occasion.

But as states begin to reopen and many of us begin planning on our return to the office, it may be time for the beard to go. Don't get me wrong. If you like your new look, by all means, keep it! 

But, if your best beard attempt didn't yield the result you were hoping for, there's no shame in letting it go. Just make sure you do it the right way. Follow these easy steps to transition back into the land of the clean-shaven as smoothly as possible.

The best way to cut your own hair

Most guys who are stuck at home feel like they have one of three choices—either embrace the shaggy look for as long as their barbershop is closed, grab some clippers and go with a full buzz cut, or roll the dice and risk disaster by cutting their hair solo.

We talked to our good friends at Emerson Joseph, one of the finest men's salons in the country and asked them if they could offer some advice to guys who were just trying to keep their hair looking good enough to keep their cameras on during video conference calls. Luckily, they had an even better solution. They are offering virtual consultations through Zoom calls to walk you and your significant other/quarantine companion through cutting your hair.

How and why soap kills COVID-19...and lots of other germs too

Soap is made up of interesting little molecules that have a hydrophilic head, which means that it bonds with water, and a hydrophobic tail, which means it avoids water and instead looks for oils or lipids to bond with. When soap and water interact, the soap molecules arrange themselves with their hydrophobic tails tucked together while the water-loving heads of the molecules face outward, looking to bond with water. Meanwhile, many viruses and bacteria (including COVID-19, the HIV virus and hepatitis B) have lipid membranes, or outer walls.

When you wash your hands with soap and water, you’re spreading those tiny little soap molecules all over your hands. As you’re washing, the hydrophobic ends of the molecules wedge themselves into the membranes of viruses and bacteria, causing them to rupture and break apart.
