Deodorant not enough to stop your body odour? A new futuristic-style bodysuit with live bacteria embedded in it could help combat those unpleasant smells. The pale grey, long-sleeved “Skin II” contains healthy probiotic bacteria, reducing the smell of body odour, said its designer Rosie Broadhead. “It’s not the sweat on your body that causes body odour, it’s the bacteria. So we’ve incorporated healthy bacteria into the textiles to enable a healthy microbiome which will help to reduce your body odour,” said Broadhead. “This change in the microbiome is associated with reducing your body odour, encouraging cell renewal and is really good for the skin’s immune system,” she said.
