Shield, South Africa’s number one selling deodorant brand, has launched Shield Germ Defence, a new anti-perspirant that gives you 10 times more protection and eliminates over 90% of odour causing germs. Shield Germ Defence is the latest addition to Shield’s new MotionSense range launched in March this year. It is made with Shield’s patented MotionSense technology which is the world’s first antiperspirant with unique microcapsules that are activated by movement to deliver bursts of freshness the more you move.
“Most people don’t know that underarm germs are the main cause of bad body odour as a result of bacteria living on the surface of your skin. Sweat itself has no smell, however once bacteria comes into contact with your sweat, it breaks it down into fatty acids that cause the less-than-fresh smell on your body,” says Jennifer Cromie, R&D Director of Personal Care at Unilever.
Most deodorants work more or less the same way with freshness fading as the day goes on. Whether you’re a parent doing school runs, an entrepreneur going from meeting to meeting, a wanderlust traveller, a fitness fanatic or work a fulltime job chasing deadlines, there’s no doubt about it – you move, and you need protection against bad body odours and sweating.
“Body odour is not only embarrassing, it also leads to a decline in confidence and self-esteem.
Shield Germ Defence is a formulated solution that provides superior lasting protection against germs, ensuring bad body odour doesn’t limit the way you move each day,” says Cromie. Shield Germ Defence antiperspirant
fights bad odour causing germs and moves with you throughout the day, keeping you protected against germs and bad body odour without having to constantly reapply. The patented MotionSense Technology ensures that the more you move the more it works throughout the day.
Shield Germ Defence is available for both men and women in antiperspirant roll-on and aerosol from R28.99 nationwide.
