Body odor does not come from sweat itself because sweat is odorless. Your body produces two types of sweat: the eccrine sweat and apocrine sweat. The eccrine sweat represents a clear sweat, consisting mostly of water that does not smell and plays an important role in regulating our body temperature. The apocrine sweat that is produced by the glands is thicker and is located mainly near hair follicles, on the groin area, in the armpits and on the scalp.
