What makes our Deodorant different?
The underarm area has delicate skin that can be even more susceptible to irritation, which usually manifests as bumps, redness or itchiness. Certain ingredients in deodorants, such as aluminum (used to block sweat glands) and parabens (used as preservatives), may increase irritation if they come into contact with the underarm area. Other ingredients to watch out for if you have sensitive skin include alcohol (allows for fast drying and cool application) and fragrance (to mask body odor). Deodorants can also dry out skin, so it is important to choose one that doesn't use these ingredients especially if you have sensitive skin.
Natural deodorants are a great solution for those with sensitive skin, but they're not all the same. Mirai Clinical's Natural Deodorant contains no aluminum, parabens, or baking soda (also another potential irritant). Our goal was to craft a deodorant for you without the use of any added fragrances or essential oils. Less is more!
Antiperspirants & Sweating
It's an uncomfortable topic, but the truth is that sweating is good, you're supposed to sweat! In fact, it's healthy to sweat because that's our bodies way of regulating our internal temperature. Keep in mind there's also good and bad sweat, you can test yours with our Sweat Test. Antiperspirants block your body's natural ability to regulate temperature by plugging, or clogging, your sweat ducts to prevent sweating. Natural deodorants, like Mirai Clinical's, do not contain pore-blocking ingredients, like aluminum, and instead allow you to sweat naturally so your body can work as intended. Our deodorant contains tapioca starch to help absorb wetness on top of the skin and minimize the wetness feel without stopping your natural bodily processes.
A common concern with deodorants is the long-term health effects of their ingredients, such as aluminum, benzene and parabens. Some studies have found the use of these ingredients in antiperspirants increase the risk of developing certain cancers. Many people have begun to use natural deodorants in lieu of traditional antiperspirants for this and other personal reasons.
Why do Old People Smell? What is Nonenal/Aging Odor?
Nonenal (or 2-Nonenal) was first identified in 2001 by the Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido as the main source of aging body odor. Further studies were documented in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry: “Lipid peroxidation generates body odor component trans-2-nonenal covalently bound to protein in vivo.” Nonenal is produced when lipid acids are oxidized (lipid acids are fatty acids produced in the sebaceous gland). Hormonal imbalances often result in higher production of lipids. As the skin matures, its natural antioxidant protection decreases, resulting in greater amounts of oxidized lipids.
Nonenal can be recognized by an unpleasant, grassy or greasy odor. It is often hard to detect on oneself but will linger on fabrics, such as shirt collars and pillow cases, if not removed during baths. Nonenal odor often persists in confined environments, such as nursing homes, and is thus sometimes referred to as the old people smell. Because this odor is oil (fatty acid) based, it is not easily removed by conventional soaps and water.
Nonenal’s effect can be different in men and women. Many women experience changes in body odor during menopause. This new odor can be a combination of both increased sweat-based odor and nonenal-based odor, leading to confusion and frustration when these odorsare not easily eliminated. Hot flashes and night sweats during menopause cause excessive perspiration and increased fatty acids, resulting in higher production of nonenal.
A recent Swedish study showed that middle aged men often have the worst body odor amongst all age groups in males. This could be due to higher testosterone ratios and related nonenal production. Finally, stress can also exacerbate the production of nonenal in both women and men.
What is Japanese Persimmon? How Does it Remove Odors?
Nature’s Purifying and Deodorizing Agent – Japanese Persimmon, is a potent antioxidant loaded with vitamins that has been traditionally used in Japan for its naturally purifying and deodorizing powers. This prized, natural ingredient is particularly effective in eliminating nonenal, the source of hormonal imbalance or aging body odor, leaving the skin squeaky clean and freshly hydrated.
Not all persimmon extracts are alike. Persimmon juice obtained manually from the fruit does not eliminate nonenal odor effectively. Only Japanese persimmon extract that is selectively harvested, carefully processed, and tested for maximum deodorizing benefits demonstrates effective results. Mirai Clinical’s persimmon extract is harvested each autumn, processed, and tested in our facilities in Japan under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
This chart shows how Mirai’s persimmon tannin is significantly more effective in reducing various causes of body odor, including nonenal, than regular deodorants.
