Sweat by itself is odorless. But in the presence of bacteria, they lead to the formation of acid and are highly odorous. The main types of bacterial that causes odor are Corynebacteria, Propionibacteria, and Staphylococci. The way we address this with deodorant, as oppose to antiperspirant, is to prohibit the growth of those three bacteria. Research have shown that a number of essential oils are great antimicrobials due to their composition. We choose Oregano and Tea Tree due to their specific targeting of the three bacteria that causes odor in armpits.
Our formula is gentle and yet effective. Through research we learned many people are sensitive to baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). We use a very small percentage of aluminum free baking soda (seen as the last ingredient. The higher up the ingredients, the more % of that is used in the formulation) to boost efficacy of odor control.
