The ScentArc technology is a nutrient blend that prevents the production of odor causing bacteria, such as Corynebacterium sp. and Staphylococcus hominis, found in the axillary area, according to Arcaea. ScentArc prevents malodor all day without harming helpful bacteria, irritating the underarm or clogging pores.

A 30-person panel applied the product (formulated into an unscented stick) once daily after a three-day wash-out period. Of the subjects, 73% claimed they were protected from underarm malodor all day and 97% claimed the product was non-irritating.
