What is Anhydrol?
Anhydrol Forte Roll-on is a treatment for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the armpits, hands or feet.
Anhydrol Forte is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly.
The active ingredient in this product is aluminium chloridehexahydrate.
It helps the product to:
reduce sweating by blocking sweat ducts in the skin, and
provide a deodorant action by killing the bacteria that cause body odour.
Anhydrol is a good option for anyone who feels they sweat too much, particularly if you feel that it affects your daily life or makes you feel awkward or embarrassed.
Anhydrol Forte is a colourless, fragrance-free liquid available in bottles of 60ml.

Using other antiperspirants or deodorants: The use of ordinary antiperspirants or deodorants is not necessary when using Anhydrol Forte. If you still wish to use these types of products, you should either:
apply them only on the days in between, when you are not using Anhydrol Forte, or;
apply them after washing off Anhydrol Forte the next morning, making sure that all antiperspirants and deodorants are washed off and the skin is completely dry before re-applying Anhydrol Forte.
Only use it on the skin of your armpits, hands and feet and avoid getting it in your eyes or mouth. Anhydrol Forte can stain clothes, so make sure it is dry before getting dressed. You should also avoid getting it on any jewellery or metal surfaces.
