Perspirex Antiperspirant Roll-On (25ml Roll-On Bottle) - Hyperactive sweat glands cause excessive perspiration, a disorder that can affect anyone, anytime. If you suffer from this condition, you’ve probably tried several treatments.
Perspirex is different. Its unique and patented formula is clinically proven to guard against sweat and odour by temporarily preventing sweat glands from producing sweat. Without sweat, there is no odour. Apply Perspirex at night, 1-3 times a week for complete protection that is gentle on skin and highly effective.
Perspirex’s active ingredient, aluminium chloride, forms a plug in the sweat gland which causes it to stop producing sweat. When the dead skin cells are shed (typically every few days), this plug will be expelled and the gland will resume its function. For this reason, you will only need to reapply Perspirex 1-3 times a week.
Perspirex’s unique formula minimises skin irritation, a problem associated with other aluminium chloride-based antiperspirants, making it appropriate for sensitive skin. It is perfume-free, non-staining, and has been proven to offer sustained protection against sweat and odour.
Perspirex is also suitable for use on other sweat-prone areas of the body such as the hands, back, feet and other areas where sweat has become bothersome. It is important to note that sweating is a normal body function that helps regulates temperature. Do not cover more than 10% your body with an antiperspirant.
Sweat has two causes, environmental and emotional. We often sweat when we exercise or when we are in a hot environment. We also sweat when we are in emotionally stressful situations such as a job interview, a presentation or exam. Hormonal changes associated with menopause and puberty can also trigger excessive sweat.
Sweat itself is odourless, primarily made of water and salt. Odour is caused by bacteria on the surface of the skin as it breaks down sweat.
Sweat is produced by sweat glands. On average, there are about 1.6 to 4 million sweat glands over the body which can produce up to 1 litre of sweat every day. Often sweat evaporates as soon as it is produced. However, in situations where we are particularly active or in a hot environment, we can produce up to 10 times a normal day’s production.
There are two types of sweat glands:
- Apocrine sweat glands, present in hair follicles, such as the armpit area.
- Eccrine sweat glands, located on the skin’s surface all over the body.
Shake before use. The skin should be unbroken and completely dry before application.
Apply Perspirex at night before bed. At the beginning of your treatment, use Perspirex every night, until you are satisfied with the results. This usually occurs in about a week.
If you have sensitive skin, apply every other night for two weeks. If you develop a skin irritation, extend the time between each application.
Allow Perspirex to dry fully after application
In the morning, wash off the Perspirex with soap and water. Do not re-apply as the effect will last even after a shower.
Side effects with Perspirex can include:
Perspirex has few side effects, however if you use it in too high a dose or too often it might cause skin irritation. If this happens to you, try to use it less. If, after reducing your applications you still have a problem, stop the treatment. You may be allergic to one of Perspirex’s ingredients and continued use will only worsen your skin damage.
If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in a different way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
