A skin care company, Sol de Janeiro, faced rumors that its Delícia Drench Body Butter attracts wolf spiders due to certain chemical compounds in the product.

The claim went viral after a one-star review on Sephora’s website warned of spider attraction.

A Reddit user suggested that the body butter might contain compounds mimicking spider pheromones, which could attract male spiders. (Trending: Obama Judge Issues Shock Ruling Against Democrats)

“One time, the spider wanted to eat whatever ingredient it is so bad that it chased me,” the reviewer wrote.

“I swear on everything. I’d run left, it ran left, I ran right, it ran right. Like it was legit following the scent.”

However, Sol de Janeiro responded, stating that its products do not contain such ingredients.

Spider experts also dismissed the claim, asserting that even if the product had those ingredients, it probably wouldn’t attract wolf spiders.

“While they may attract a lot of attention from people, they won’t from arachnids (even though we love all creatures at Sol de Janeiro),” the statement read.

“It is HIGHLY unlikely that the skin cream company through random chance combined enough things in just the right proportion to mimic a spider compound,” Dr. Floyd Shockley, chair of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s Entomology Committee stated.
