WHAT IS BODY ODOUR?
When the sweat from your apocrine sweat glands reaches the surface of your skin it reacts with perfectly normal skin bacteria, and gives off an unpleasant odour.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ECCRINE AND APOCRINE SWEAT GLANDS?
APOCRINE SWEAT GLANDS
The common bacteria on your skin love this sweat and when the bacteria feed on and decomposes it, the process produces a recognisable and unpleasant sweaty odour.
Your hormones and stressful situations trigger sweat production in your apocrine glands.
ECCRINE SWEAT GLANDS
You have millions of eccrine sweat glands over your entire body and the sweat they secrete helps regulate your body temperature in hot weather and during exercise.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
