A body odour is never pleasant. Get into a crammed bus or walk into a busy shopping centre and you may notice the distinctive smell of stale sweat. Now sweat itself does not smell. So what causes odours? It is the culture for the bacteria and fungi that live on our skin that causes body odour. Bacteria and fungi break down sweat into aromatic fatty acids, which produce the unpleasant odour. Only medicated shampoos like Keto-Z act directly on bacteria and fungi.
Many people think that the solution is simple – wash up with soap daily, shampoo your hair and use an anti-perspirant or an anti-deodorant. But a normal soap or shampoo will only cleanse one’s hair and skin, while an anti-perspirant or anti-deodorant will only mask an odour. More often than not the odour will still be very much round the corner because the underlying cause has not been tackled. The bacteria and fungi in the skin are the underlying cause of body odours and bad smell. The bacteria and fungi are found in the folds of our armpits, toes and groin that are really causing the odours. A medicated shampoo like Keto-Z that acts on the bacteria and fungi is the perfect solution.
Shampoos are products normally used for the removal of oils, dirt, environmental pollutants and other contaminant particles that gradually build up in the hair and skin. Normal shampoos do not act on the bacteria and fungi that cause bad odour. Medicated shampoos not only take off the dirt but also act on the bacteria and the fungi that create these unpleasant odours and bad smell.
KETO-Z OTC SHAMPOO of Alta Care Laboratoires, Paris, is a medicated shampoo that can be used both on the hair and the body to eliminate bad odours and bad smells.
Keto-Z OTC Shampoo is a 4 in 1 medicated shampoo with these four conditioning agents:
Octipirox – anti-allergy properties
Triclosan – anti-bacterial properties
Climbazole – anti-fungal properties
Zinc pyrithione – anti-inflammatory properties
KETO-Z SHAMPOO is ideal to maintain a healthy skin that has a good smell without the need to mask it with perfumes or deodorants. The medicated shampoo can also be used daily as a prevention from having a bad odour. This is a break through, for medicated shampoos, usually, cannot be used frequently. Alta Care Laboratoires has formulated a medicated shampoo with micronized ingredients that can be used daily.
KETO-Z SHAMPOO has the benefit of not being just a hair-shampoo, for it can also be used instead of a soap for cleansing the body as well, especially for those parts of the body where bacteria and fungus tend to take root, in other words below the armpits, feet, in skin-folds, etc..
Apply the shampoo on the hair or on the parts of the body where the shampooing action is needed. It is important to leave this medicated shampoo for at least 5 minutes before washing it off. Keto-Z medicated shampoo can be purchased from any pharmacy without the need of a prescription. If symptoms persist it is important to consultant your dermatologist.
