    one or two are anti-bacterial but there is no antiperspirant.

    Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties. Your question is outside my area of expertise I’m afraid.

    Menthol, Tea Tree oil and Fragrance will all cover up odor.  None of the ingredients would really work to prevent odor.

    Deoplex has been used in bar soaps as a purported deodorant active.

    Great suggestion @Microformulation as I have been looking for an ingredient which can effectively neutralize the odor of pet urine in household products.

    If it doesn’t require such a harsh environment as a saponified soap, Schulke also has an option.


    I think Bob Zonis can weigh in also but I believe many Pet Odor eliminators use enzyme systems as well.
