To relieve the people from bad body odour, scientists have crafted a new deodorant which indicates that now people will never smell of body odour.
Conventional roll-ons or sprays were created in a way that could only mask the offensive smell or block the pores in order to stop them from secreting the perspiration in the armpits.
With the new formula, the scientists have been able to reduce or stop chemicals in the sweat that turn into the foul smell in the first instance.
Anyone with wounded or sensitive skin having blocked pores by the use of traditional deodorants can hope for the good by using this innovated product.
The research was funded by cosmetics firm L’Oreal, and the product was developed by scientists at the Compiègne University of Technology in France.

There are certain chemicals in perspiration that turn into the bad smell. The deodorant comprises an active ingredient which just acts like antibodies so to target the particular chemicals that are present in the sweat.
The head of the Enzyme and Cell Engineering Institute at CUT, Professor Karsten Haupt stated that whenever the issue of body odour is discussed, it usually refers to the smell that is emitted from the armpits.
The secretions in the sweat itself are unscented. It is the bacteria that reacts with the sweat and transforms the perspiration into smelly and volatile molecules. After catching the irritating molecules in the person’s sweat, the antibodies remain compelled and difficult for the bacteria unless they are wiped off or washed completely.
For security reasons, the deodorant is being tested, and there is a hope that the new formula will be available in the market within few years.
