I'm trying to understand how deodorants affect pheromones in humans.
In humans, the formation of body odor happens mostly in the axillary region. These odorant substances serve as pheromones which play a role related to mating.
A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits, feet, and other areas of the body.
Can the opposite sex receive pheromones if a person uses crystal deodorant (doesn't have a fragrance; doesn't block sweating; prevents body odor by creating an invisible, protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria)?
