What is hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is one of the natural processes we use to cool down our bodies. However, some people experience an excessive amount of sweating, even when their body temperature is normal. Excessive sweating is a disorder called hyperhidrosis. The Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) defines Hyperhidrosis as, “A disorder that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature.”
According to the CDA, Hyperhidrosis affects approximately 3% of the population – around 950,000 Canadians – of whom 300,000 have a severe form of the excessive sweating disorder. Hyperhidrosis can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing. Severe forms of the disorder can affect one’s productivity at work, confidence in social settings, overall well-being and quality of life. What people may not know is that there are treatment options available. If you think you have hyperhidrosis, it would be a good idea to contact your dermatologist.
Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant (opens in a new window) has three times the sweat reduction of regular antiperspirants*. It is dermatologically tested to fight sweat and odour so you can carry out your day with confidence. We know that during those high-stress days at work, whether it’s a big meeting or tight deadline, the last thing you want to worry about is damp patches on your shirt or blouse. Try our Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant line so you can get back to focusing on the important things throughout the day— like rocking that presentation in front of your boss. If sweat continues to persist, please see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment options for hyperhidrosis.
Up to 48-hours of protection
We know that having to constantly re-apply your antiperspirant deodorant can be time consuming and sometimes annoying. If you need sweat and odour protection that lasts more than just a few hours, our clinical protection antiperspirant may be right for you. It’s an extra effective antiperspirant, clinically proven to provide protection against wetness throughout your busy day.
Care for delicate underarm skin
Our Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant line will help you stop worrying about irritation from shaving or washing because it contains ¼ moisturizing cream. So, while your Dove antiperspirant is working hard to protect you against sweat and odour, rest assured that regular use of our antiperspirants will leave you with soft, smooth underarm skin.
Beautiful, yet subtle fragrances
Our Dove antiperspirants come in gorgeous subtle scents that are made to complement your favourite perfume. Find one you love or use different scents to suit your mood. If you like a soft, silky feeling, try Clinical Protection Powder Soft Antiperspirant (opens in a new window) scented with notes of freesias and peonies. If you prefer that fresh and cool fragrance, try Clinical Protection Cool Essentials Antiperspirant (opens in a new window), which is a refreshing cucumber and green tea scent.
