What Causes Old-People Smell?

We Asked: Charlene Brannon, Ph.D., former professor of food chemistry at the University of Washington and scientific advisor at Mirai Clinical

 

The Answer: As we age, there are a lot ofchanges in our skin that we can see: wrinkles, sagging, dryness, etcetera and so on. There are also changes in our skin that might not be visible to the eye, but the nose surely knows. A2001 study conducted by skincare scientists in Japan found that beginning around age 40, a person's body odor contains a higher concentration of 2-Nonenal, a compound that has an unpleasant, greasy, grassy odor that we affectionately call "old-people smell."

 

Sebaceous glands in skin release sebum, an oily combination of lipids that helps retain moisture. The sebum produced is broken down by bacteria on the surface of the skin, which contributes tobody odor and can be exacerbated by hormonal changes and stress. In younger people, skin's natural antioxidant defenses work to prevent these fatty acid breakdown products from beingoxidized by the air and turned into other chemicals. Older skin has fewer antioxidants. That, coupled with hormonal shifts that increase lipid production by sebaceous glands, means that more of those free fatty acids will undergo oxidation. The results is an accumulation of oxidized substances including the particularly odiferous nonenal.

 

Because they're not water soluble, the lipids that give rise to nonenal don't wash off easily with regular soap. The company that Dr. Brannon works for, a Japanese skincare brand called Mirai, makes a body wash that specifically targets nonenal with persimmon extract. The tannins in the extract absorb up to 97 percent of the compound on the skin, according to Mirai's clinical trials.

 

The older we get, the more nonenal we produce. And, because nonenal is a small, volatile compound, it can be found in the air around skin, and absorbed into clothing, pillows and sofa cushions. All the while, our sense of smell deteriorates, making us less aware that it's happening. So if someone gives you a gift certificate to Mirai for your birthday, take the hint.

I have a spray pack called "Old Sebacea".

Also available in roll on.

Known to repel young, destitute, yet curiously self obsessed, aggressive, drunken Twats, whilst enhancing the distinguished, moneyed features of older Chaps.

Fashion accessories applied as Maturity dictates.

Guaranteed not to result in losing the plot and mistreating BGs, mobile phones, or surrounding furniture or fixtures.

Interesting but be careful as this sounds like a burb for a product. Most of the details are probably correct but I am sure that this bit is crap (or at the very least misleading)...

The reason why we use soap is that it makes it possible to dissolve fats and oils in water!

Maybe we just smell of decay ?, I have noticed that some old people smell of damp leaves but maybe they just have incontinence issues.

 

I think that old people should stay "very clean" as the clip below demonstrates its a big positive with younger people - shame it just seems to men in this one though.

 

 

In the beginning was the word and the word was "In" :ThumbUp6:

I thought they just showered less and scrimped on washing machine usage.

Whilst browsing the beauty product shops of pattaya this afternoon, I stumbled across a funky looking deodrant. Had to buy it as i'm just that kind of guy. Its like a solid stick of '100% ammonium alum'. You wet it and rub away. It has no scent. Googled it when i got back to condo and there's a whole world of people out there raving about this stuff. Tomorrow, i'm going to see how bad i don't smell. Wish me luck.

The reason many old people smell is because many old people don't really give a fuck and don't take good care of their hygiene anymore. My own mum lived alone as a widow for about 15 years and she would go days without bathing because she lived alone and couldn't give a fuck. When I went to visit my mum she always smelled of BO. A couple years ago my mum had a stroke and is now in an age-care home. Every morning age-care workers come into the old dears' rooms and undress them and put them in the showers and give them a good washing. So everytime I went to visit my mum in the age-care home she always smelled nice and fresh and clean, despite the fact that she's 91yo. So there's the difference between an old lady smelling bad and smelling nice = soap & water.

Have used 20 to 40 % to stop the wet pits. Do not put this anywhere you might actually want to sweat.

Thats why you see bar girls wiping some farangs with them little white towel things, the hot weather sure brings out something other than their inhibitions.

fcuk me, when my mom went into a nursing (age-care) home here in Canada they budgeted 1 shower/bath per week. Disgusting.

The worst I've smelled was a young Russian man who reached up to hold on overhead on the Baht-bus. I considered jumping off the back.

The though of a nursing home makes "jumping" on my terms a proposition worth considering IMHO.

It's the diapers. We can never change them fast enough.

I did not know her name, I did not know her name but I sure did love the way she laughed and called me honey.

after age 40, getting older causes old people smell...   :Crazy1:

 

BTW, thanks for this; it is truly nice to know there is a product out there to help combat that.

Wash your arm pits and use deodorant, brush your teeth, wash your dick and wash your a hole and all should be sweet.

The old man smell is due to hygiene issues, period! Shower twice a day minimum when in the tropics using normal soap and a long handled brush for your back and you should be fine unless you have special skin issues.

I have a plentiful supply of duodenum vapors. They mask bodily smells, and give one a lasting sense of warmth and comfort.

100% simon-pure card-carrying pom. Born within the sound of Bow Bells London, and migrated to Fremantle for a tenner in 1951...lol

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
