Five facts you didn't know about your underarms.
5 FACTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT YOUR UNDERARMS.
HAPPY PITS FACTS
Your armpit is the area underneath your upper arm, where it connects to your shoulder. The official anatomical term is axilla and this part of your body is truly amazing. Here are some facts about this sensitive area.
LYMPH NODES & SWEAT GLANDS
Your armpit is more than what is seen at first glance, it is home to a large number of lymph nodes and sweat glands. Lymph nodes are really important as they are small structures that work as fillers for foreign substances, such as cancer cells and infections. It makes you think twice about what products you apply, that is why we care so much about the ingredients that go into our formula.
MILLIONS OF BACTERIA
Millions of bacteria live on the skin of our armpits, for this reason, our natural deodorant contains jojoba ester and coconut oil which kills bacteria and keeps you fresh and smooth, it helps neutralize the bacteria that cause underarm odor.
SWEAT IS ODORLESS
Sweat in itself is odorless but when bacteria interact with sweat, it causes body odor. Our natural deodorant contains Baking soda which neutralizes odor-causing bacteria, isn't it awesome?
STABILIZE YOUR TEMPERATURE
Sweat is good for you! Sweat glands are primarily designed to stabilize your body temperature. The idea that we sweat to expel toxins is slightly misguided, but a tiny amount does leave via sweat - but detoxifying is the job of the liver and kidneys. We wished we could sweat out last night's tequila bottle.
The Underarm area is home to the highest density of sweat glands, more than 500,000. Clearly, a deodorant is necessary!
