The 411 on Prebiotics & why you NEED it in your deodorant!

The 411 on Prebiotics & why you NEED it in your deodorant! 

Before you ask yourself, “Why would I need prebiotics in my deodorant?” let us explain! Prebiotics are nutrients that promote growth of good bacteria you house in your body. These nutrients “feed” the good bacteria in order to fight off the bad bacteria, which causes body odor. When there aren’t enough good bacteria in the body the bad bacteria can increase and take over.

What’s the difference between Prebiotics and Probiotics?

Both prebiotics and probiotics work to promote a healthier microbiome for areas such as the gut, mouth and skin. Prebiotics are nutrients that promote the growth of the good bacteria you already have in your body while Probiotics are bacteria that benefits the body to maintain a healthy balance.

Switching to a deodorant that has prebiotics can help with bacteria, odor and infections. It is important to use deodorants that are natural and clean, which means free of toxins and harmful chemicals. Think of prebiotics as a natural way to reduce odor, compared to leading brands with synthetics and “bad for you” ingredients.
