Edison, NJ (PressExposure) April 22, 2008 -- With creative marketing and instructions to âapply at bedtime,â several big name brands are promising relief from excessive perspiration with the introduction of âclinical strengthâ antiperspirant products/formulas. However, a savvy consumer, with a quick read of the ingredients package, can see that there really isnât much difference between the regular and the clinical strength formulas when you compare these products side by side. Does a 1% increase in an active ingredient make a major difference? Is it because you are instructed to apply it at night?
âAs a whole, any antiperspirant will be more effective if applied at night before bedtime when the glandular activity slows down, however, a person who has axillary hyperhidrosis [excessive sweating of the underarms] may find very little relief from these newer products marketed as âclinical strengthâ regardless of what time of the day they apply it, because the formulas are not necessarily strong enough,â explains David Bank, M.D., dermatologist and director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, NY. âIf you are looking for relief from excessive perspiration in a product available at the drug store, the best formula would be one that contains aluminum chloride, such as Certain Dri, which is closest to the prescription formula that dermatologists have been recommending successfully to patients for years.â Certain DriÂ® Anti-Perspirant contains 12% aluminum chloride for $5.50.

It shows that the active ingredient is exactly the same, yet with a very small increase in concentration amount and double the price of regular strength.
