|Your Skin Smells Too! |
Metabolites produced in the axillae (underarms) are a primary source of human body odour. But nonaxillary skin also harbours volatile metabolites, possibly with different biological origins than axillary odorants.
A study to take inventory of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the upper back and forearm skin identified nearly 100 compounds, some of which varied with age.1
These data may provide future investigators of skin VOCs with a baseline against which any abnormalities can be viewed in searching for biomarkers of skin diseases.
