Now, on to today’s topic: customer questions about pheromone concentration!

Let’s dive right in!



To start with, let’s clarify: what exactly is pheromone concentration?

It’s just what it sounds like: it’s the total amount of pheromones in the bottle. Most synthetic pheromones are created as crystals and powders. Those crystals and powders are then dissolved into carrier liquids so you can apply them to your skin. In more rare cases, synthetic pheromones are created as liquids. Those liquids are then diluted into carrier liquids so you can apply them.

Pheromone concentration varies from product to product. Some pheromones, like our Pure Pheromones, are very highly concentrated, containing a full mg of pheromones in every ml of carrier liquid. Others have a lower concentration: NPA for Women, for example, has 0.3 mg of pheromones per ml of carrier liquid.

Generally, the higher a pheromone product’s concentration, the more intense and potent its effects. However, it does depend on the types of pheromones included in the formula. Sex pheromones tend to have more potent effects even at lower concentrations. Social pheromones tend to have milder effects even at high concentrations. For example, a product that contains 0.5 mg of AndrosteNONE per ml of carrier will feel stronger and more potent than a product with 0.7 mg of AndrosteNOL per mg of carrier!

All right, now that we’ve clarified what pheromone concentration is, let’s talk about how the concentration affects the product’s end result!



One pattern we’ve noticed when talking to customers: most people assume that a higher concentration is always better than a low concentration. But that isn’t necessarily the case!

First of all, most people actually don’t need a very high dose of pheromones. You’re naturally making your own pheromones right now! The pheromones available in our products can supplement your naturally-produced pheromones, but you probably don’t need much. If you’re young and healthy, you won’t need a very high dose. If you’re also active and eating foods that increase your natural pheromone production, you likely need even less!

Now, if you’re older and less active than you used to be, you will probably benefit from products with a higher concentration. If the lower concentrations aren’t doing it for you, then trying out a more potent product is a good next step. But we do recommend starting with a lower concentration and only using something more potent if you’re sure you need it!

But why start with a lower concentration? Why not jump right into the strong stuff? Well, using too high a dose can actually backfire! Strong sex pheromones, especially, can be very intense in high doses. Overdoing it can intimidate and agitate people around you. They can even make you feel antsy and irritated. So we recommend playing it safe with a low concentration until you’re sure you need something stronger.

If a product has a very high concentration, like the Pure Pheromones do, you may need to dilute it before application or you’ll definitely be applying too much. Make sure to read any instructions on potent products so you can use them properly!



In addition to assuming that a high pheromone concentration is better, many people believe that a low pheromone concentration makes a product weak. But this isn’t necessarily the case either! You, personally, might need a higher concentration to see good results. But, like we said above, many people actually do better with a lower concentration compared to a higher one!

Let’s compare two products: Alpha-7 Unscented and Chikara Pheromone Cologne. Between the two of them, Chikara is the more popular, so you might assume that it has a higher concentration. But it doesn’t! Alpha-7 Unscented has more than twice the pheromone concentration of Chikara, and contains a more potent overall formula because of its high sex pheromone concentration. But Chikara is more popular and, according to user feedback, produces more consistent results.

Chikara’s popularity comes down to its formula and its lower concentration. Its formula includes a mix of social and sexual pheromones, while Alpha-7 contains only sex pheromones. Chikara’s lower concentration also means that it’s more difficult to use too much, which leads to more pleasant overall results. So, while many people might be drawn to Alpha-7’s higher concentration, chances are good that Chikara will be the better fit. Alpha-7 is ideal for people who need a strong hit of very potent pheromones; most people need something less intense!

This is just one example a lower concentration actually being one of a product’s benefits rather than one of its drawbacks. A low concentration doesn’t make a product “weak”–it can actually make it more effective for you. That said, if you’re having no luck with products with a low pheromone concentration, you should definitely try something more potent, or increase the amount you’re wearing of the products you’ve tried. That may be what you need to start getting good results!
