Bacterial Controlling

Surprised! Bacterial are also the source of body odor.

We accused sweat for our odor, but what you smell after you work out is the odor of bacteria metabolizing the sweat, not the sweat itself.

Body odor (or B.O., bromhidrosis, osmidrosis or ozochrotia) is an unpleasant smell our bodies can give off when bacteria that live on the skin break down sweat into acids.  Some say it is the smell of bacteria growing on the body, but it really is the result of bacteria breaking down protein into certain acids.

Staphylococcus aureus
Streptococcus pneumoniae
E. coli
