The human being has been fighting against body odour for centuries. Our culture has been creating habits of personal hygiene that sweep the skin ecosystem and obstruct the natural function of the armpit, through the antiperspirant approach that blocks the sweat glands either lately or by using microbial ingredients to avoid the proliferation of malodour origin microbiota.
The concept of biological deodorant is a new and innovative strategy that aims to let the skin carry out its own physiology naturally while avoiding the metabolization of the organic compounds by the skin microbiota without killing it, just controlling it.
In order to find out how this fact applies to the industry, Vytrus Biotech has been researching on this topic and developed high quality technological platforms that allows us to work with the microbiota in a respectful, sustainable and global way.
The challenge of this research focuses on developing a mechanism of action that effectively eliminates body odour by incorporating an innovative hybrid combination that addresses the care of axillary microbiota through two fundamental pathways to inhibit the production of malodour molecules:
- Using a prebiotic technology as an alternative nutritional supply to shift metabolism from lipids to polysaccharides consumption
- Balancing the microbiota by controlling niche factors synthesis through Quorum Sensing inhibition mechanisms. This proprietary technology is based on the properties of plant stem cells.
Vytrus Biotech has carried out several in vitro tests and clinical studies that showed how to obtain the natural capacities of plants and use them in a natural way with the objective of respectfully acting on the skin microbiota in the humans’ health benefit.
This new mechanism of action is a big step ahead in the latest research field and we will share it with you during the BCN Olfaction Week.
