The biology behind body odour
Body odour is a very complex biological process. Sweat that results in body odour is secreted by the apocrine sweat glands. These glands are only present in certain areas of the body like the armpits, breasts, ear canal, eyelids, wings of the nostril, perianal region and some parts of the external genitalia.
Turning sweat into body odour
Freshly secreted sweat is sterile and odour free. Sweat being a salty fluid provides an ideal living condition for bacteria and other microorganisms. When bacteria start to metabolize the nutrients in sweat, it becomes a smelly affair.

Why do you need Super Deodorant?
The vast majority of skin problems and body odour are due to bacteria. Super Deodorant offers long-lasting antimicrobial action in the armpits and helps to maintain a healthy skin flora and boosts the skin’s natural defence.
Our natural deodorant contains pure medical-grade silver particles that are highly porous and micro-sized (NOT NANO). These particles physically cling very well to skin and hair follicles in the armpits and continuously generate silver ions resulting in long-lasting protection from body odour.
