Use a cleansing foam with herbal plant extracts from Ribwort or Liquorice root. Both work fine as a natural and gentle germicide. Body odour is caused by bacteria on the skin which are splitting up sweat. The sweaty fluid itself does not smell, but while it's divided into its compounds by the germ butonic acid is produced, an acid which smells typically sour. This is the malodor that we know as 'the smell of sweat'. Some people suffer from permanent body odour, a commonly unknown illnes called Bromhidrosis. On those people's skin the 'bad' bacteria grows uncontrollably. The deodorization foams mentioned above will help to reduce the bacterial flora to a normal level.
