1 ResearchUtilization of Calamansi (Citrofortunella Microcarpa) into Homemade Foot Powder
2 Chapter 1Background of the Study Body odor (esp., foot odor), or the unpleasant smell of bacteria growing on your body . The main cause is foot sweat . Sweat itself is odorless , but it creates a beneficial environment for certain bacteria to grow and produce bad - smelling substances . These bacteria are naturally present on our skin. Therefore , more smell is created with factors causing more sweating , such as wearing shoes and socks that lacks air ventilation for many hours . Hair on the feet , especially on the toes , may contribute to the odor's intensity by adding increased surface area in which the bacteria can thrive. Foot powder is a type of powder which absorbs sweat that causes odor to the foot. Calamansi is a tropical fruit usually found at the Philippines. This is commonly made into juice drinks, additive to common native sauces (e.g., toyo) and even as a body odor repellant.. The small circular fruit prevents body odor especially the armpit odor.
3 Statement Of The Problem Main Problem: Is the product reliable?Sub Problems:Can this product absorb enough sweat?Is this product irritating to skin?Can this product kill bacteria?Is the product cheaper?
4 Formulation Of Hypothesis The said product can not absorb sweat , kill bacteria , nor remove bad odor from foot . The product is less reliable than the commercial foot powder
5 Scopes and Limitations 15 athletes will be randomly selected for them to use the said product. Another 15 athletes will be randomly selected for them to use a commercial footpowder. We will compare the result according to the data gathered. The participants will rank the product they used using the scale below:5 – Effective4- Less Effective3- Could Not Decide2- Removes Less Odor1- Could Not Remove Odor All
6 Definition Of TermsSweat -moisture that gets out of the body through the pores found at our skin; usually comes out when a certain body has a higher temperature than the normal temperature. Foot- Lowest part of the body; used for walking to some common animals.Foot Powder-a product that removes the bad odor from foot by absorbing sweat and killing bacteria.Calamansi-a circular tropical fruit usually found in the Philippines; sometimes mixed in juice drinks and sauces.Foot Sweat- sweat that is found on foot; helps the bacteria to survive.Odor-Usually classified as good or bad odor; can be identified using the sense of smell
