Background/aims: In moist intertriginous regions, such as the armpit, the pH value is physiologically higher than in other skin regions. The regulation of the axillary pH‐value was examined in an open study with 48 subjects in three groups with n=16 each. 
Microecological investigation and comparison of two clinical methods to evaluate axillary osmidrosis
TLDR
LSM provided a higher sensitivity for evaluating odor severity than the TM and may be suitable for use in a clinical setting, and the pH value was positively associated with AO severity. Expand

Gender Difference of in vivo Skin Surface pH in the Axilla and the Effect of a Standardized Washing Procedure with Tap Water
TLDR
There is a gender difference in axillary skin surface pH between men and women with more acidic values in females, and washing with water further increased the difference between male and female pH values. Expand
Efficacy of topical acidified aliphatic ester for treatment of axillary osmidrosis by rebalancing skin microecology
TLDR
It is concluded that topical acidified aliphatic ester could effectively alleviate conditions of AO patients by reducing value of axillary pH and rebalancing axillary microecology. Expand
The Acidic Milieu of the Horny Layer
TLDR
Changes in the pH and the organic factors influencing it appear to play a role, not only in the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of irritant contact dermatitis, but also of atopic dermatitis and ichthyosis and in wound healing. Expand
Promoting good hygiene among older residents
TLDR
Over-cleansing or incorrect use of skin cleansers can affect the balance of skin flora and may damage vulnerable tissues, so best practice is to be considered. Expand
Zinc Oxide Inhibits Axillary Colonization by Members of the Genus Corynebacterium and Attenuates Self-perceived Malodour: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Trial.
TLDR
Application of zinc oxide reduced malodour and the counts of causative bacteria, but increased the pH of the axilla in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in 30 healthy volunteers. Expand
The pH of the Skin Surface and Its Impact on the Barrier Function
The ‘acid mantle’ of the stratum corneum seems to be important for both permeability barrier formation and cutaneous antimicrobial defense. However, the origin of the acidic pH, measurable on theExpand
Circadian rhythms in axillary skin surface pH
TLDR
It is important to understand whether diurnal variations in skin surface pH exist in the axilla, as these may influence strongly the time of day at which antiperspirant should be applied in order to yield maximal protection. Expand

The microbiology of the human axilla and its relationship to axillary odor.
The axillary microflora of 229 subjects was characterized quantitatively and the results correlated with whether the odor was pungent body odor or instead a faint "acid odor". The axillary flora wasExpand
In‐vitro and in‐vivo studies of human axillary odour and the cutaneous microflora
TLDR
The axillary microflora of 34 male subjects were studied in relation to their underarm odour intensity and aerobic coryneforms, Micrococcaceae and propionibacteria were predominant groups. Expand
The skin microflora and the formation of human axillary odour
TLDR
There was a statistically significant association between population density of aerobic coryneform bacteria and UAO intensity, and no associations could be found between population densities of staphylococci, micrococci or propionibacteria andUAO intensity. Expand
Efficacy of a deodorant and its components: Triethylcitrate and perfume
TLDR
In a double-blind controlled trial, deodorant preparations containing perfume and triethyl citrate in a 60% ethanol base were compared to preparations lacking either perfume or triethylcitrate, and to a placebo preparation. Expand
Measurement of skin pH.
TLDR
The knowledge of the skin surface pH-acid mantle is updated and the conviction that chronic alkalinization is damaging has been strengthened and the need for extensive infrastructural research and evaluation by non-parametric methods is emphasized. Expand
The influence of the pH-value on the growth of Brevibacterium epidermidis in continuous culture.
TLDR
P pH-shifts induced by cosmetic procedures can only prevent unpleasant body odour due to abundant growth of bacteria if the pH-value is decreased to 5.0 or less. Expand
Proteinaceous precursors of human axillary odor: isolation of two novel odor-binding proteins.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that 3M2H was liberated from 2 proteins with apparent molecular mass of 26 and 45 kilodaltons: Apocrine Secretion Odor-Binding Protein 1 and 2, respectively (ASOB1 and ASOB2). Expand
Time-dependent variations of the skin barrier function in humans: transepidermal water loss, stratum corneum hydration, skin surface pH, and skin temperature.
TLDR
The results suggest that skin permeability is higher in the evening and night than in the morning, and may be clinically relevant in several aspects applied to skin physiology and topical drug application. Expand
