    What are the preferred conditions for bacteria that help produce socially useful pheromones?

    and

    What is the preferred conditions for bacteria that produce bad body odour?

    Or... where and what should be the words to search for research papers to find out?

    I am not really sure if I understand you correctly .....

    If you sweating, your body do not emit bad body oder (for example androstenone) directly by skin. After the body emit (amongst others) androstadienone (A1), bacterias convert it into androstenol and then into androstenone which has an bad odor for some people.

    The conversion rate depends on the location, the environment condition, if you work or not and your own body chemistry.

    I don't think that's the whole story, because if it was then all we'd need to do to smell more attractive is maintain a fully anti bacterial environment on the skin, which would keep just androstadienone on the skin.

    Has anyone tried this? If so, what did you use for an unfragrance antibacterial?

    Good topic. My understanding is that the pheromones that we are after are the product of *other* chemicals in sweat that are then acted upon by bacteria on the body. The youthfulness/health of the individual are a big factor as well of course as these chemicals are metabolites of hormones circulating in the blood stream. That's my take anyway. So keeping a sterile environment on the body would only be recommended for the elderly or otherwise unhealthy.
    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
