What is Anhydrol Forte Roll-On and what is it used for?
Anhydrol Forte Roll-On 20% W/V Cutaneous Solution is an extra-strength antiperspirant deodorant designed for use by those who experience excessive sweating that affects the hands, feet, or armpits.
Anhydrol Forte is a clear, colourless liquid that contains the active ingredient aluminium chloride hexahydrate, an antiperspirant that stops you sweating. For best results, it should be applied as necessary at night, when sweating is naturally decreased, and then washed off in the morning.
The treatment can be used by adults, children over 12 and seniors and is generally used for two nights in a row followed by two nights without treatment.
How does Anhydrol Forte work?
When you apply Anhydrol Forte to your skin, the active ingredient, aluminium chloride blocks the sweat glands. The fluid pressure within the sweat glands then rises, causing the temporary cessation of the production of sweat. The sweat glands unblock naturally when our skin is shed during the day.
Alternatives to Anhydrol Forte
Wearing light clothes, changing clothes and footwear regularly and not re-using sweaty or damp clothes are ways you can stay sweat-free for longer. An anti-fungal dusting powder like Daktarin Activ, Daktarin powder or Mycota powder can help to absorb excessive moisture especially if you need treatment on your feet.
