L'Oreal Partners With Compiegne University Of Technology Scientists To Create Antibodies That Work Against Body Odor

July 11, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Scientists at the Compiegne University of Technology in France have developed artificial antibodies designed to bind to chemicals in sweat, preventing them from becoming smelly. Unlike conventional deodorant formulas that either cover up smells or block underarm skin pores, the new deodorant comes with molecularly imprinted polymers. These MIPs catch the precursors of compounds that cause bad odor, allowing the body to produce sweat without the body odor. L'Oreal is working with the researchers to determine its commercial applications.
