Background There is little scientific evidence to support the efficacy of natural deodorants and therefore, such products may be perceived as inefficacious. The evaluation of the in vitro antibacterial activity of a hop extract and the evaluation of the odor‐reducing capacity of a hops/zinc ricinoleate‐containing product by a sensory evaluation panel is employed to verify deodorant performance.
