Hey, we're Androtics.
We're the creator of social pheromones for consumers.
We've gotten a lot of resistance over the years to the idea, but it's true -- humans are social creatures first. We're complex. We think and talk. A lot.
That's why some of the most important pheromones are actually social, not directly sexual, in nature.
We design consumer products to improve lives in practical ways by giving people more control over their social destiny.
We also the inventor of dosed pheromones for experimenters and the scientific community. Imagine if aspirin was undosed, and you'll get the idea of how important this seemingly obvious step is.
Where are we?
Our products are formulated in the Seattle areas, with a small amount made in Europe.
We are in the process of moving key formulation facility to Silicon Valley, with shipping from Las Vegas, inspired by Tony Hsieh @ Zappos.com.
Where do these things come from?
The bulk of components used in our products are mostly from Europe and the United States.
Many of the unique, key components are synthesized custom for us at university chemistry labs, overseen by the world's top organic chemists. An expensive but quality intensive process.
Focusing on using the purest, high quality organic chemicals has allowed us to make formulas as precise as we do. Eventually, we hope that the low cost chemical suppliers of the world can make product with similar quality. We're sure they'll get there, but it still feels far off.
Here's a few other interesting facts:
- The initial technology behind Androtics was developed by Michael Harris in the academic & technical areas of Cambridge in the late 1990s
- The beta version of the world's first social pheromone product, "Come Talk To Me", was released & tested during Silicon Valley's Burning Man Festival during the year 2000.
- In business officially since 2003, we initially sold products to other stores before "going direct". The direct model allowed us to make the switch from Chinese made components to the finest, first world, university synthesized components
- Androtics' first online shop was started in 2005. In 2016, we opened the the store where you are currently reading this message.
