Japanese company invents flatulence-neutralising pants

Seiren has claimed that they have invented a range of pants that neutralise the smell of flatulence.

After years of trying different remedies to stop smells in their tracks, such as deodorant, vinegar and even talcum powder, new odour-busting underwear has been produced in Japan.

The process of invention took a few years to master using ceramic particles in the material fibres that neutralise the offending odour.

Around 22 products have been manufactured by the firm, including t-shirts that eliminate under-arm body odour and socks that do the same for feet.

Initially contacted by a doctor wanting to help sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome, the company expanded their assortment and created a daily wear range.

The range of underwear was originally designed for nursing care and hospital patients, however they have become quite popular with many different types of people, stated the company.

"To our surprise, lots of ordinary people, like businessmen who are in positions that require them to see people on a daily basis, bought them," explained a company spokesperson.

The range, called Deoset, kills off any unpleasant odours that can emanate from the human body.
