  • Advantages and Innovations:
    The directors of this company identified through research that 33% of the population feel they sweat excessively and that individuals were embarrassed by underarm sweat marks showing on clothing which restricted their clothing choices. The patch developed by this UK company absorbs 2000 times the average amount of underarm sweat, is ultra-thin, traps odour and is ergonomically designed. It is therefore discreet and gives individuals the confidence to wear whatever they choose without risk of underarm sweat stains marking clothing.

    In comparison competitor products are thicker so less discreet, do not remain in place and hurt when removed. They also do not trap odour so still require the use of a deodorant or antiperspirant.

    The patches are free from parabens and aluminium which removes concerns of links between these and disease. They also provide an alternative for individuals who experience an allergic reaction to antiperspirants and deodorants.

    The patches are manufactured in dual locations so distributors can be confident that demand for supplies can be met.
