Bacteria containing cream is good for offensive armpit odour – Professor Kingsley Anukam

Body odour, especially armpit odour, is a social menace in public places and has threatened marriages. Sometimes, the use of deodorants results in more offensive hybrid odour than the original odour. A research team from the department of Medical Laboratory Science at Nnamdi Azikiwe university led by Professor Kingsley Anukam has reported that the incorporation of lactobacilli in a body cream has been able to reduce offensive armpit odour in healthy volunteers. Lactobacilli is the type of bacteria you find in yoghurts. The outcome of this research was published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology
