Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2014 -- The use of deodorants in South Africa continues to be a need for consumers who can afford to buy them rather than a want. This is mainly driven by the hot weather conditions that prevail every summer season in South Africa. Deodorant sprays and roll-ons have been the main drivers for this category where competition is stiff and the market is characterised by a high rate of new product entry by leading manufacturers. Manufacturers are using existing brand names to launch different variants of the same brand hence it is easy for them to launch new products. One good example is the Axe brand in deodorant sprays from Unilever, where they always launch a different variant of the Axe spray.

Unilever boasts in the market with its popular brands that include Axe, Shield, Brut and many others. These products are well distributed across the country with their main selling channel being supermarkets where there is more access to consumers of all income streams.
