The Magic of Mandelic

The Magic of Mandelic

The magic behind Phunk Off's effectiveness is the superstar ingredient mandelic acid. 

  1. Antibacterial Properties: Mandelic acid has natural antibacterial properties which inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the skin. By reducing the bacteria present, mandelic acid minimizes body odor.

  2. Gentle Exfoliation: Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known for its gentle exfoliating properties. It helps to remove dead skin cells from the skin which allows the active ingredients in Phunk Off to be absorbed more fully.

  3. Skin Brightening: Mandelic acid has been shown to have skin brightening effects. In a deodorant, this could potentially help with underarm discoloration or darkening, resulting in a more even skin tone.

  4. Reduced Irritation: Compared to other AHAs like glycolic acid, mandelic acid is less likely to cause irritation. This is beneficial for individuals with sensitive skin who are prone to irritation from traditional deodorant ingredients.

  5. Odor Control: While primarily known for its antibacterial properties, mandelic acid also helps to control odor directly. By targeting the bacteria responsible for causing body odor and keeping it from forming, mandelic acid offers an additional layer of odor protection stopping the stink before it starts!
