No woman fancies walking around spreading a bad odor or showcasing wet underarms. These situations can be quite embarrassing for women. The culprit is almost always perspiration.
Body odor is caused by bacteria that feed on sweat produced by the apocrine glands because of it contains high amounts of protein and it is easy for bacteria to digest. Antiperspirants have been the most common remedy used to control body odor.
Sweat on its own is virtually odorless to humans; the quick breaking down of sweat into acids by bacteria is what eventually results in an unpleasant smell. Antiperspirants keep these bacteria from feeding on sweat and digesting sweat hence decreasing the unpleasant smell.
