Liquid Trust is a liquid spray designed to evoke feelings of trust in people that the wearer encounters. It is sold by Vero Labs and can be found online at their website and at Amazon. Liquid Trust is recommended for situations in which the wearer would like to form a bond of trust with another person in either a professional or social setting. Vero Labs also offers a version of Liquid Trust called Enhanced Liquid Trust that utilizes pheromones in addition to oxytocin.
The main ingredient in Liquid Trust is oxytocin. Oxytocin is a hormone that is released into the brain when a person feels safe and trusting of another person or other people. It is present during childbirth, breastfeeding, and during sexual activity; it is sometimes referred to as the “love hormone.” This product is formulated to stimulate this process in the brains of people that approach or are near the person wearing this spray.
Enhanced Liquid Trust
Enhanced Liquid Trust uses oxytocin combined with the pheromones androstenone and androsterone. These pheromones are naturally present in humans and other animals during various social interactions, usually related to mating processes.
Liquid Trust is applied by spraying the liquid directly onto the shirt of the person using it; for optimal results, it should be sprayed once or twice. When applied as directed, it should stay in effect for between two and four hours. Besides oxytocin, this spray contains purified water and SD alcohol, which serve to make it easier to apply.
Enhanced Liquid Trust contains these ingredients as well as androstenone and androsterone.
Liquid Trust is sold in a 1 ounce bottle intended to last approximately two months. The average cost for a 1 ounce bottle is $49.95 for basic Liquid Trust and $79.95 for Enhanced Liquid Trust. However, basic Liquid Trust can also be purchased in a .25 ounce bottle for $29.95 directly from the Vero Labs website.
The basic version of Liquid Trust currently has a rating of 2.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon based on ten user reviews. The general consensus of users seems to indicate that it might have a minor placebo effect rather than an actual chemical effect on others; some users indicated that they felt that simply wearing the product gave them greater confidence and led them to behave in a more socially aggressive manner that proved beneficial to them.
A few people believed that Liquid Trust had a legitimate effect on others and experienced increased professional and social benefits. One reviewer noticed a difference in her sales at her job and also perceived an increased level of friendliness in both her boss and customers on days when she wore this spray. Another reviewer used this product on herself to facilitate emotional bonding with her adopted children and found it helpful in that application. Amazon does not currently offer Enhanced Liquid Trust; there are no user reviews for that product.
- Liquid Trust is odorless and can therefore be worn in addition to perfume or cologne.
- It is also easy to apply with the spray bottle.
- Vero Labs offers a 60 day, 100% satisfaction guarantee to customers. If a customer is dissatisfied for any reason, he or she can return the unused portion of the product to Vero Labs for a full refund.
- Although a few users experienced positive feedback when wearing Liquid Trust, there is no evidence or research suggesting that oxytocin applied in this manner has any real, legitimate effect on other people.
- Some people found the product to be too expensive for the size of the bottle.
- One user complained of negative respiratory effects when using the product, although she admitted that she used more than directed. She also noticed a chemical smell when applying the product.
While the product might be a fun product to try, it does seem a bit pricey for the size offered. To date, there is no evidence that oxytocin will have the desired effect of improving the trustworthiness of the wearer when applied as a liquid spray. Enhanced Liquid Trust costs more than the basic Liquid Trust product but pheromones are known to affect social interactions in humans and are detected by smell. The original Liquid Trust seems to work mainly by improving the social confidence of the user rather than by affecting or inducing any specific biological process.
