What is Perspirex Strong
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant is a clinically proven strong formula which works to block the pores to prevent the sweat from being excreted in a totally harmless way. This will also help to reduce any odours which are caused by excess sweat.
When used as directed, Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On can help you feel fresher and dryer all day with just a few applications per week.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a relatively common condition that can affect men and women in certain areas or even the whole body. Usually, the body sweats when we get hot or do exercise as it acts to cool the body down as the sweat evaporates, but in some cases of excess sweating, it can happen when you do not need to cool down. There are several things that cause it from medical conditions to side effects of taking certain medications.
Sweat is produced by two different types of glands which are found all over your body. They are:
- Apocrine sweat glands – found in the hair follicles such as in your underarm area
- Exocrine sweat glands – these are found all over your body on the surface of your skin
Different areas have higher concentrations of sweat glands such as the hands, feet and underarms.
You can try to deal with excess sweating yourself by doing things such as:
- Wearing loose-fitting clothes to allow air to circulate and to minimise the appearance of excess sweat on the body
- Avoiding man-made fabrics such as nylon or polyester as these can promote sweating
- Changing your socks twice per day and wearing ones which will absorb sweat more easily
- Wearing shoes made of natural materials such as leather and alternating wearing different pairs
- Wearing shoes which are as open as possible
- Avoiding lifestyle causes such as eating spicy foods and drinking alcohol
Even if you are able to follow all these guidelines, there is still a chance that you will suffer from excessive sweating and will need a remedy to help overcome this. Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On is one such product that can help you to combat sweating too much.
How effective is Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On?
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On is clinically proven to reduce the effects of hyperhidrosis when used as directed. It provides long-lasting protection from the wetness and odour caused by sweating, and it also has a unique active skincare system which will help to reduce any underarm irritation.

When used as directed, it will form a gel on the skin to block the pores, which would otherwise excrete sweat.

How should I use Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On?
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On is a topical treatment for external use only. The roll on format makes it easier to use in the underarm area, which it is primarily designed for, but it can be used on other parts of the body if required.
Instructions for use are as follows:
- Ensure the area to be treated is clean and dry and there is no broken or irritated skin
- Apply a small amount (2 strokes backwards and forwards should be adequate) over the underarm area
- Apply the product at night-time, just before bed, as the sweat glands are less active at night
- In the morning, wash the product off the skin using soap and water – there is no need to reapply as the effects are long-lasting.
- If you wish to add some fragrance (the product is unscented), you could use a perfumed body spray.
- Do not use in conjunction with any other antiperspirant product, as this will compromise the effectiveness of Perspi-Guard Treatment.
- As it is unscented, you can use it with a scented body spray to provide some fragrance.
Please read the information and instructions provided before use.
How does Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On work?
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On is specifically formulated to help treat excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, offering up to 5 days of protection from sweating and the associated odour. It works thanks to its active ingredient, aluminium chloride hexahydrate, which reacts with water and the keratin found in sweat ducts. The reaction creates gel-type plugs which block the pores to prevent sweat from escaping. The plugs will disappear naturally as your skin sheds within a few days, but this does mean you only need to use the product 2 to 3 times per week to achieve the maximum benefit. It also contains an active skincare system which will reduce skin irritation.
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On should be used externally only and should not be applied to damaged, irritated, wet or freshly shaven skin.

You will begin to see a change in the amount you sweat from the first use of Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll On. Its specially designed formula will work from the first application as it will create the gel needed to block the pores. Continue to use as directed (3 to 5 times per week), and you will experience an overall dryer and more odour-free lifestyle.
