About the Product
Pit Putty is a natural deodorant with a difference in that it doesn’t just mask smells, but actually prevents them. The way Pit Putty has been designed, it still allows your body to sweat just like it should do, but the sweat will actually be odourless!
Ready for the science behind it?
There are a certain type of sweat gland which live in the underarms, these are called apocrine sweat glands. When you’re hot or exercise the apocrine sweat gland release odourless sweat to cool you down. However, also living on your underarms are bacteria which actually eat the sweat and create an acid byproduct; body odour!
Pit Putty is a mild alkaline and actually reacts with the acidic byproduct from the bacteria and neutralises it, preventing any odour from occurring.
Many people notice that they don’t seem to sweat using Pit Putty and this is because of a natural plant root powder used to absorb mild sweating. Also being water-free means that Pit Putty doesn’t require any preservatives to maintain a long shelf life and can remain harsh-chemical free!
We hope you enjoyed this brief science lesson and learning a bit about your natural deodorant and how it’s looking after you.
