Deodorant as we know it today started with the original formulation for Mum deodorant that was invented in 1888, by an unknown inventor from Philadelphia. Generally recognized as being the first ever product to prevent odor, the inventor promptly trademarked his invention and distributed it through his nurse under the name of "Mum." In the late 1940s Helen Barnett Diserens joined the Mum production team. A suggestion by a colleague inspired Helen to develop an underarm deodorant based on the same principle as a newfangled invention called the 'ball point' pen. This new type of deodorant applicator was tested in the USA in 1952, and marketed under the name of Ban Roll-On. The first anti-perspirant aerosol deodorant was launched in 1965.
Deodorant as we know it today was patented by chemist Jules Montenier in 1941. Since ancient times, people have used natural and manmade perfumes such as spices and even honey as a deodorant.
