This clever ingredient is part of the reason our deodorants work so well, and it’s not only present in deodorant. Also known as Sodium Bicarbonate, Baking Soda, Bicarbonate of Soda.
Sodium bicarbonate, commonly known as baking soda or bicarbonate of soda, is a chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. It is a salt composed of a sodium cation (Na+) and a bicarbonate anion (HCO3−). Sodium bicarbonate is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slightly salty, alkaline taste resembling that of washing soda (sodium carbonate). The natural mineral form is nahcolite. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs.
Sodium Bicarbonate is an antibacterial and pH neutraliser. In our anti-odourant, it is used to neutralise the acid in sweat and eliminate underarm bacteria, therefore preventing body odour from forming. It is the reason for the high performance of LOX and complete reliablity.
