What is Japanese Persimmon?  How Does it Remove Odors?

Nature’s Purifying and Deodorizing Agent – Japanese Persimmon, is a potent antioxidant loaded with vitamins that has been traditionally used in Japan for its naturally purifying and deodorizing powers. This prized, natural ingredient is particularly effective in eliminating nonenal, the source of hormonal imbalance or aging body odor, leaving the skin squeaky clean and freshly hydrated. 

Not all persimmon extracts are alike. Persimmon juice obtained manually from the fruit does not eliminate nonenal odor effectively. Only Japanese persimmon extract that is selectively harvested, carefully processed, and tested for maximum deodorizing benefits demonstrates effective results. Mirai Clinical’s persimmon extract is harvested each autumn, processed, and tested in our facilities in Japan under strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). 

This chart shows how Mirai’s persimmon tannin is significantly more effective in reducing various causes of body odor, including nonenal, than regular body washes.

Why do Old People Smell? What is Nonenal/Aging Odor?

Nonenal (or 2-Nonenal) was first identified in 2001 by the Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido as the main source of aging body odor. Further studies were documented in the March 2010 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry: “Lipid peroxidation generates body odor component trans-2-nonenal covalently bound to protein in vivo.” Nonenal is produced when lipid acids are oxidized (lipid acids are fatty acids produced in the sebaceous gland). Hormonal imbalances often result in higher production of lipids. As the skin matures, its natural antioxidant protection decreases, resulting in greater amounts of oxidized lipids.

Nonenal can be recognized by an unpleasant, grassy or greasy odor. It is often hard to detect on oneself but will linger on fabrics, such as shirt collars and pillow cases, if not removed during baths. Nonenal odor often persists in confined environments, such as nursing homes, and is thus sometimes referred to as the old people smell. Because this odor is oil (fatty acid) based, it is not easily removed by conventional soaps and water.

Nonenal’s effect can be different in men and women. Many women experience changes in body odor during menopause. This new odor can be a combination of both increased sweat-based odor and nonenal-based odor, leading to confusion and frustration when these odorsare not easily eliminated. Hot flashes and night sweats during menopause cause excessive perspiration and increased fatty acids, resulting in higher production of nonenal.

A recent Swedish study showed that middle aged men often have the worst body odor amongst all age groups in males. This could be due to higher testosterone ratios and related nonenal production. Finally, stress can also exacerbate the production of nonenal in both women and men.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Mirai

“Sometimes it’s difficult to admit that you’re getting older, but this makes you feel younger because your skin feels younger and you don’t have that odor that as you’re getting older that you should have… I used to use more deodorant than I do now but now I don’t use as much as I used to.” See the rest of Toni’s review in our short video!

“I also recommend these products for older patients who complain they’re starting to have that grandmother/grandfather smell. They really help cleanse the body without leaving any residual odor behind.” Hear what Jeannie, a certified nurse practitioner, has to say about Mirai Clinical’s deodorizing products!

“I enjoyed the soap, which I thought was great, the fragrance was great… it didn’t leave any residue, felt very gentle and effective as a cleanser.” Sabrina

What is Over-Washing?
A century ago, people relied on strong sops to remove dirt and body odor. Today most of us take a shower daily, but tend to lather our bodies with soap from head to toe. This is over-washing. Our modern lifestyle requires gentler and healthier approach to bathing. Why? Perspiration is water soluble and can be easily rinsed off with water. However, oxidized natural oils, which contain impurities, are not water soluble and require soaps for removal. Many commercial soaps include synthetic ingredients that can destroy the skin’s natural protective barrier. Overusing soaps with these synthetics can lead to chronically dry or sensitive skin. Even with skin-friendly ingredients, excessive washing can remove the good bacteria which help maintain the skin’s healthy balance, and can lead to additional body odor.
Where to Wash?

Where to Wash?

There are five primary areas that should to be washed daily, as they tend to produce more oxidized sweat and lipid acid (oils) and resulting body odor:

  1. Behind the ears (where Nonenal most occurs)
  2. Behind the neck (where Nonenal most occurs)
  3. Under arms
  4. Groin
  5. Feet

As our bodies vary, focus on other areas as you need to. Then, just rinse off with water! You’ll feel noticeably cleaner and fresher, and you’ll see healthy skin results within a few weeks. Less is more!

Usage & FAQs
Can the Body Wash be used as a shampoo?
Yes, our Body Wash is very gentle on the scalp and effective as a deodorant. It is free of harmful sulfates used to create “lather” in most shampoos which can lead to long term damage of scalp and hair. So our wash might not foam as much as you are used to but you really don’t need much foam to effectively clean your hair of impurities and odor. Massage the wash gently on your scalp and through your hair, and rinse thoroughly. We are currently developing a unique hair shampoo which we hope will be available in 2015.
Are there instances where persimmon extract will not remove nonenal?
Let’s go back to fundamental issues inside the body. A healthy body is supposed to have no unpleasant smell. Eating clean, working out, having enough sleep, and minimizing stress are important keys to good health. However, unhealthy lifestyles and diets, as well as obesity, may lead to weakening of the skin’s antioxidant defenses, exacerbating the production of nonenal. In addition, over washing may result in removing good bacteria from the skin, weakening the skin’s antioxidant defenses. So, focus on washing behind the ears and neck, underarms, groin, and feet – areas most prone to nonenal – to not only eliminate nonenal but to avoid over washing and keeping that good bacteria!
Does this product mask the aging odor or does it penetrate the skin and address the problem at the root? Do you need to keep using the product or does the smell lessen over time?
The odor-eliminating ingredient, Japanese persimmon tannin, does not penetrate the skin but rather dissolves the cause of the odor, nonenal, on the skin’s surface. Our studies shows that Dove body wash reduces only 30 % of nonenal, while Mirai reduces 97%. You do need to use our products while you continue to experience nonenal, but the long term solution is to boost the antioxidant defenses of your skin to minimize nonenal production–eat antioxidant rich foods, exercise regularly, get sufficient rest, and minimize stress. Persimmon extract supplements may also be effective as a long term solution.
