In its metallic form, silver is inert and exhibits no biocidal action. However, it ionizes in the presence of water or tissue fluids to release Agϩ or other biologically active ions.

12] showed that the axillary flora is a stable mixture of Micrococcaceae, aerobic diphtheroids and propionibacteria. Higher numbers of bacteria can be recovered from the axilla of persons with pungent axillary odor. This is related to the activity of aerobic diphtheroids, which could be ascertained in experiments with droplets of apocrine sweat placed on the forearm and inoculated with various bacteria: only diphtheroids generated the typical body odor. Cocci produced a sweaty odor attributable to isovaleric acid [12].
