What is Absolute Dry?

Absolute Dry is a powerful antiperspirant that effectively prevents sweating on underarms, hands, feet, etc. for up to 7 days.

Absolute Dry contains aluminium chloride in an alcohol base and prevents sweating at the site of application.

The aluminium chloride forms a barrier in the outer part of the sweat gland which prevents the sweat from passing out on the skin. Aluminium chloride also has an inhibiting effect on bacteria which prevents bad smell.

Absolute Dry is recommended to anyone who wants an extra effective antiperspirant with a unique sustainable effect. Absolute Dry is also recommended to people suffering from excessive sweating, so called hyperhidrosis.

Absolute Dry is free from perfumes, preservatives and dyes.

How do I use Absolute Dry?

Follow these steps:

To ensure full effect and to prevent irritation of the skin, it is important that the skin is comple­tely dry when you apply Absolute Dry.

1. Wash skin at the site of application and dry well with a towel. Let the skin air-dry for a while.

Freshly shaven skin is easily irritated. You should not shave your underarms for a 24-hour period prior to application of Absolute Dry.

2. Apply Absolute Dry onto the skin, e.g. under­arms, an hour or so before going to bed at night and let dry. This normally takes only a minute or two.

3. Wash the skin in the morning. If desired, you may use a regular scented deodorant, but it is not necessary.

Absolute Dry will keep the skin dry and fresh for up to 7 days. It is usually sufficient to re-apply Absolute Dry once a week. Test different application intervals to find one that suits you.

If you suffer from excessive sweating/hyperhidrosis it is recommended that you initially apply Absolute Dry more often in order to achieve a lasting effect. After this initial period, it will usually be sufficient to re-apply once a week.

The skin on the hands and feet is thicker than on the underarms. More frequent application is therefore required for use on the hands and feet. Apply Absolute Dry several evenings in a row during the initial period of use to achieve full effect.

If the skin becomes red and irritated, you can apply a moisturizing cream or, for more severe symptoms, a prescription-free hydrocortisone cream.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Sweating is the way the body regulates its temperature. Sweat is produced by sweat glands (2-4 million) located in the skin in various parts of the body. The sweat glands are found in large numbers on the soles of the feet, the palms, the forehead and cheeks, and in the armpits. The activity of sweat glands is under the control of the sympathetic nervous system and is involuntary.

Sweating a lot is normal when it is hot or when you exercise, are anxious or have a fever. It is also natural to sweat more during puberty and menopause. In people who suffers from excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis the sweat glands overreact to stimuli and are generally overactive, producing more sweat than is necessary. Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating beyond the physiological need of the body.

Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is affecting 3% of the population. Palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of hyperhidrosis, causing excessive sweating of the hands. Hyperhidrosis can also cause excessive foot, underarm and facial sweating. Sweating is often uncontrollable, embarrassing and not anticipated. Hyperhidrosis has devastating emotional effects on one’s individual life. Affected people are constantly aware of their condition and try to modify their lifestyle to accommodate this problem. This can be disabling in professional, academic and social life.

Treatment of hyperhidrosis?

If treatment with extra effective antiperspirant like Absolute Dry not is enough, injections of botulinum toxin (Botox) is an alternative. Botulinum toxin is a potent treatment with effect in 3-12 months. surgery is considered only when other options are excluded.
