SweatGuard® was started in 2006. Our founder Ben Jones had been suffering with excessive sweating every day of his life for 26 years. In this time he endlessly tried many products but found most of them ineffective. People are all very different and their sweat glands and sweat production can be very different with some people hardly sweating and at the other end of the scale people who describe their “life as a puddle”.
We found that most ‘deodorant' products were developed and targeted by the larger toiletry companies at the mass market i.e those people who are 'normal' sweaters. On the other hand there were and still are very few prescription pharmaceutical antiperspirants for excessive sweating. Those that are available are based on Aluminium Chloride as the active ingredient.
The problem here is that they were developed decades ago by pharmaceutical companies and whilst they can be effective are often accompanied by side effects, which limits their use for many people. The lack of really effective Pharmaceuticals and NHS iontophoresis clinics therefore has limited the tools that Doctors have for treating the condition. In summary therefore he found products & services available from supermarkets, pharmacies and NHS clinics often did not work well for excessive sweating.
SweatGuard® has continued this quest over the years continually improving our products.
Our products include:
