Raise your hand if you feel you have excessively sweaty hands or feet. The extreme condition is called Hyperhidrosis and it affects 2% to 3% of the population. That’s a lot of people!
I’ve never had a disproportionate sweating problem, but it doesn’t bother me here and there. Like here and for sure my feet. If I don’t wear socks or peds with heels, my feet really sweat, and I don’t think I’m alone. CARPE worked with derms and other experts and after 60 prototypes, they created a product for use on hands that sweat, Antiperspirant for Hands, and feet that sweat, Antiperspirant for Feet..
While I tried the Antiperspirant for Hands, it felt too chalky on my hands (the founder recommended I wash my hands 10 minutes after applying as it will still work). But thankfully I don’t really have a sweating problem there, so I tried it on my feet. And wow! No slippy-slidey in my shoes and no sweat means no smell. Double yeah!
The formula looks like any other lotion and all you really need is a pea-sized amount, rub it in and done.
From what I can gather, both the Carpe Foot and Carpe Hand ones have the same active ingredients so you can use it on both parts. And if you fall into the 2% to 3% of the population, they recommend applying the pea-sized amount daily just before bed and you’ll see about 25% reduction in sweat. $14.95/1.35oz @ mycarpe.com.
