Many deodorant manufacturers claim that they have products specifically targeted to prevent stress sweating, or "emotional sweating" as I have seen. Some examples come from Nivea and Vichy.

Did you know that we sweat differently when we are under stress? Our body reacts by producing more sweat, triggering stronger odour than that produced during physical activity.

NIVEA Stress Protect Roll-On is scientifically proven to protect against emotional sweating.

They claim their products have technologies proven to be more effective against stress sweat. I'm skeptical of this.

Is there any difference between sweat caused by heat or exercise and sweat caused by emotional stress? If so, are there any substances shown to work better against emotional sweat?
