Soap destroys the good bacteria particularly under your armpits, then bad bacteria grow and the smell becomes terrible. If you wash regularly (even many times a day) with only water you don’t destroy the natural balance; then, no smell. If because of some health problems, or some clothes, or if you cannot access a place to wash yourself, like when traveling, carry with you a natural alum crystal: it destroys all bad smell without damaging your skin balance as soap does. I use it regularly.
