is washing the smelly armpit with soap a good thing or bad thing? because some people say it's bad since it leaves a film that the bad bacteria eat and kills the good ones, also lowering ph level

That is a good question! In our research results, we can say that soap is a good thing to use. It takes away the underarm skin lipids, which is a main contributor to underarm body odor. Frequent washing also takes away the epidermal bacteria, so the fastest growing bacteria can regrow and take over the 'territory', over the 'fastidious' slower growing corynebacteria. Best, Chris
