Perspirex temporarily renders sweat glands ineffective. The active ingredient, aluminium chloride, reacts with the water in the sweat gland to form a keratin plug in the gland, causing it to become dormant.
?The plug is expelled when the dead cells on the surface of the skin are shed. After this the sweat gland will become active again. For this reason, you only need to reapply Perspirex 1-3 times a week.
Perspirex is a unique combination of aluminium chloride in an alcohol base and the aluminium lactate buffer. The formula effectively renders sweat production inactive deep in the sweat glands while being gentle on skin.
Apply Perspirex on dry, unbroken skin with two upward and two downward strokes in the centre of the armpit.
Sweat glands are less active at night, therefore a night time application gives Perspirex more time to work.
Yes. You can continue to apply your regular scented deodorant or perfume. It will not affect Perspirex’s efficacy.
You can use Perspirex during pregnancy as it is produced according to prevailing legislation. If you have any concerns about the ingredients of Perspirex and their potential effects on your baby, please consult your doctor
Yes. Perspirex can be used on other parts of the body where perspiration is bothersome. Take care during application to avoid the eyes, mouth, genitals etc. Perspiration is a natural body function that helps regulate body temperature; for this reason, do not cover more than 10% of your body with an antiperspirant.
The alcohol without water formula in Perspirex causes the treatment to be long-lasting and gentle on the skin. Other antiperspirants contain aluminium chloride and water. They are somewhat effective against perspiration, but since their plugs form on the skin’s surface rather than in the actual sweat gland, their formulas do not last as long as Perspirex.
Perspirex may cause allergic reaction or skin irritation. Discontinue use if this occurs.
