Body malodour, including foot odour, suppresses social interaction by diminishing self‐confidence and accelerating damage to the wearer’s clothes and shoes. Most treatment agents, including aluminium anti‐perspirant salts, inhibit the growth of malodourous bacteria. These metallic salts also reduce sweat by blocking the excretory ducts of sweat glands, minimizing the water source that supports bacterial growth. However, there are some drawback effects that limit the use of aluminium anti… Expand
Microbiological and biochemical origins of human axillary odour.
TLDR
The microbiology and biochemistry of malodour formation on axillary skin is examined, in detail, focussing on precursor-product relationships, odour-forming enzymes and metabolic pathways and causal organisms. Expand
Tomatoes cause under-arm odour.
TLDR
It is proposed that under arm odour is commonly caused by terpenes excreted via the axillary apocrine glands, and it is shown that these come from terpene and carotenoid-rich dietary sources including lycopene, tomatoes, orange peel and the glandular trichomes of tomato plants. Expand
Deodorant effects of a sage extract stick: Antibacterial activity and sensory evaluation of axillary deodorancy
TLDR
A single treatment with a stick deodorant containing dichloromethane sage extract of 200, 400, or 600 μg/mL concentrations was effective in reducing the axillary malodor level compared with the control, in healthy subjects. Expand
Deodorants and antiperspirants: identification of new strategies and perspectives to prevent and control malodor and sweat of the body
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the main active ingredients used in marketed deodorant and antiperspirant formulations as well as to identify new strategies and future methods to optimize such products and prevent malodor. Expand
Chemical composition of household malodours – an overview
TLDR
The state of knowledge of household malodour composition is examined, covering in detail areas such as food preparation and disposal, indoor air concentrations and building emissions, and body effluents. Expand
Indigenous South African essential oils as potential antimicrobials to treat foot odour (bromodosis)
TLDR
Findings presenting interesting anti-bromodosis activity hold great potential, as not only do the selected oils have antimicrobial activity, but the pleasant aroma of these aromatic botanicals can further mask and control foot odour. Expand
Herbal Cosmetics: Natural Approach to Cosmeceuticals
Background: The concept of cosmetic is derived from ancient times. Cosmetics are used for cleansing, beautifying, and promoting attractiveness. Cosmeceuticals are a combination of cosmetics andExpand
