High Strength Anti-Perspirant

Our Compounding Department has found an increased demand for a product that treats excessive sweating and has created a high strength antiperspirant compound that has received impressive responses from patients and practitioners.

Specifically formulated by our Compounding Department with the active ingredient Aluminium Chloride Hexahydrate for the relief of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).  The formula is suitable for all ages. This compound can be ordered as either a roll on applicator or a spray.

We offer a one-hour turnaround time for patients picking up the compound in store.

Alternatively, we can post the compound Australia wide.

How to Administer

It is best to apply the compound to the affected areas last thing at night before going to bed as this is when the sweat glands are least active. Wash off in the morning and do not re-apply throughout the day.

At first, you should apply the compound each night until sweating ceases during the day. Once sweating stops you may be able to reduce its use to twice a week or less.


How it Works

Aluminium Chloride Hexahydrate effectively blocks the sweat glands to reduce perspiration. The aluminium ions are readily taken into the cells that line the eccrine-gland ducts at the opening of the epidermis, the top layer of the skin.

It also binds tightly to water molecules, making water very viscous. This causes weak muscles that push sweat out of our sweat glands unable to move the sweat to the surface of our skin.


Side Effects

Tingling, mild itching, or irritation may occur when the medication is first applied. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, moderate itching, or swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
