Hops Deodorant

Tom's of Maine has come up with the perfect product for the beer lover. A deodorant stick made with hops.
Unpleasant odor is caused by skin bacteria when we sweat. The “bitter principles” that help hops to preserve beer also, it turns out, fight odor. Hops inhibits the growth of bacteria by causing leakage in the bacterial cell membrane, which impairs bacterial function and therefore prevents odor.

Who knew?

You may be able to find the Tom's of Maine Hopodorant (not the actual name) at CVS or Walgreens.


  1. Now dammit, we are currently in a worldwide hop shortage. We shouldn't be wasting hops by wiping them under our armpits!

  2. Not all hops are beer hops.

  3. really a great piece of information.
