Every person has about 2 million sweat glands distributed all over the body. They produce an aqueous salt solution which is odourless at first. The typical body-odor is produced only subsequently by the bacterial decomposition of sweat. It develops mainly whereever there is a damp warm climate and the sweat can not evaporate quickly (e. g. armpits, genital area). Of course other areas of the body also produce sweat but it can evaporate here before the bacterial decomposition of sweat begins.
Therefore it is very important to avoid unpleasant body odour, especially when you are among other people. In our silver deodorants we use the disinfecting power of silver, which prevents from the reproduction of odor-causing bacteria and so avoids the typical smell of sweat.
