As we age, the natural antioxidant protection from our skin diminishes. As such, lipid (fatty) acids from our sebaceous glands are oxidized more easily, producing Nonenal, or aging odor.
As early as age of 40, Nonenal can be detected by a person’s normal sense of smell. Then, as we face the bigger hormone changes surrounding aging and menopause, Nonenal production can skyrocket. It’s not a matter of hygiene or lifestyle. It’s simply biology, yet easily treatable!
While soap and water can remove traditional sweat-based body odor, they cannot eliminate Nonenal, since it’s oil-based. For centuries, the Japanese have used persimmon extract as a natural deodorizer – the natural tannin in the fruit dissolves Nonenal, much the same way lemon juice knocks out a fishy smell.
All Mirai Clinical body care products are boosted with purified Japanese persimmon extract and instantly eliminate all troublesome body odors, including Nonenal.
