AKOWELL LINE – AKOWELL FRESH – INCI: Propanediol, Aqua (Water), Commiphora Myrrha Resin Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract – APPLICATION: Natural Deodorant
AKOWELL FRESH is a well-balanced synergy of plants, containing active antibacterial substances. Usnic acid, the active ingredient in Usnea Barbata, protects the lichen from environmental aggression and predators’ consumption, while Myrrh is a resin that defends the tree trunk from external infections. The broad antibiotic and antifungal protection provided by usnic acid, together with the marked astringent effect given by the gum resin, provide a truly long-lasting anti-perspirant and anti-odor effect. Clinical data (sniff test) show reduction of malodor by the ingredient compared to a placebo. Consumer perception test confirms reduction of malodor as well as reduction of perspiration.

Laboratory data show protection from stress hormone cortisol induced lack of oxygen to restore normal oxygenation.
