Now he knows he needs a Deodorant!

Just in time for summer's hot days, Freshaxyl  natural deodorant has arrived on the scene to fight underarm funk.  Freshaxyl deodorant is formulated with glyceryl laurate which is a coconut oil derivative.

The personal care product is made by Care Creations which is part of BASF.  Germany-based BASF has joined the growing list of major corporations that are turning to coconut oil as an active ingredient to control underarm odors.

Freshaxyl also contains Moringa to “ help capture odors” according to BASF. This tree is native to India and has many botanical and food uses according to a Purdue University Report-Moringa oleifera.

Glyceryl laurate is also a basic ingredient in Tom’s of Maine natural deodorants. Tom’s uses commonly recognized botanical herbs for odor control, like lemongrass. Tom's of Maine is now owned by Colgate-Palmolive.

Glyceryl laurate has a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity according to a National Institute of Health Report: link NIH Glyceryl laurate. Coconut oil and human breast milk are the only known sources of glyceryl laurate.
