Excessive Underarm Odor Solution
Science of Underarm Odor
Your body has eccrine glands and apocrine glands that produce sweat to cool the body. Your apocrine glands are usually the culprit of underarm body odor. These glands produce a thicker type of sweat with an oily consistency made up of proteins and lipids (fats). The sweat from your apocrine glands mixed with bacteria on your skin creates odor.
