"However, thanks to Mirai's deodorizing powers , which I have helped develop, this concern is no longer an issue for me. In particular, I was concerned about Nonenal, a common body odor that is caused by aging as antioxidant defenses weaken. Unfortunately, Nonenal can be quite difficult to get rid of as it is oil-based and not easily removed with regular soap and water," Dr. Yoko says.
Nonenal is a well-known issue in Japan, but it is not as commonly known outside of Japan. It is characterized by an unpleasant smell and can be a source of discomfort and embarrassment for those who suffer from it. However, with the help of Mirai's persimmon ingredient, she has been able to effectively address this issue for herself and her patients. Thanks to the power of clinically tested persimmon extract, Mirai's products can safely and effectively eliminate Nonenal body odor, leaving individuals feeling clean and fresh.
How is Nonenal different from regular body odor? Body odor comes in two forms: sweat-based and oil -based. Sweat glands produce a mixture of water and organic substances that provide a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in traditional body odor. On the other hand, sebaceous glands produce lipids that oxidize with oxygen in the air and turn into an organic compound called Nonenal, which has its own distinct smell. As we age, our skin's antioxidant defenses decrease and Nonenal formation and resulting odor may increase. Unlike sweat, lipid acids are not water-soluble, meaning they are harder to remove with regular soap washing. This explains why Nonenal persists even in clean environments.
