What is Driclor Solution Roll-on?

How does Driclor Solution Roll-on work?
Driclor Solution Roll-on is used to treat excessive sweating, which can cause embarrassment in social situations.
It contains the ingredient aluminium chloride hexahydrate. This is an antiperspirant that works by blocking the sweat glands, causing a build-up of fluid and pressure in the glands. This causes the sweat glands to stop producing sweat temporarily.
The solution comes in a bottle with a roll-on applicator and should be applied just before going to bed. Wash it off in the morning and it will keep your sweat glands blocked all day. At night, as the skin naturally sheds dead skin cells, the sweat glands are unblocked.
Clear in colour and fragrance free, Driclor Solution Roll-on can be used on the armpits, hands or feet but should not be used on larger areas of the body, as sweating helps to regulate our body temperature.
