Edible Deodorants?


It’s not just Barack Obama who’s coming up smelling of roses – eat ‘body fragrancing functional candy’ and you could too… US company Beneo, which has developed the spooky-sounding sweet with Bulgarian confectioner Alpi, says the product is perfectly safe and, in principle, works the same way as garlic. Both the sweets and garlic contain compounds that can’t be broken down by the body, and so are excreted through the skin. In the sweets, the key ingredient is geraniol, a naturally occurring compound found in plants such as roses, lavender and vanilla. Munching on the sugar-free tangerine-flavored candy will, apparently, turn you into a living perfume atomizer.” w/ photos
