Do you want to increase your pulling power on the dance-floor ? We may have just the thing for you - pheromone face wipes ! Kiotech, a London biotech company has launched a brand of face-wipes soaked in 50 different human pheromones - these are the substances present in sweat which are responsible for our sex-appeal. The company claims that when its Xcite! wipes are rubbed on the face they make people appear more attractive to the opposite sex within a 3 foot radius. Apparently the effect lasts for 12 hours. George Dodd, a biochemist who helped to develop the wipes said users were described as friendlier, warmer, and more inviting with a more attractive smile. They could help people to appear more influential in business meetings, he said. The wipes will be sold for £1 each in clothes shops and condom machines in pubs and clubs.
