Sweating is an issue that we all have to deal with at some time or other. In an unusually warm environment, the average person sweats about 3 pints an hour. Perspiration is your body’s built-in cooling system. When we sweat it is usually for a reason: either we are stressed, emotional, nervous or simply feeling too hot.
However, sweating makes nearly five per cent of the UK’s adult population worry more than most. That’s because they suffer from a rarely-discussed condition known as excessive sweating. It remains a taboo, because it’s embarrassing, especially if it happens in public or in a time and place which makes it feel a whole lot worse for the person involved. For those who work in intense, stressed and highly personal environments, the pressure caused by excessive sweating can make every day extremely tricky.
23 year-old Jack Wise suffered from excessive sweating in his armpits from when he was in his teens. As an Acute Specialist Hospital Manager, working in a fast-paced environment is the daily norm and his sweating problems were not helping. He explains: “I didn’t even talk to my GP or my medical colleagues about excessive sweating, although I’d noticed that I always suffered more than everyone else and knew that I had to do something about it.
“Wearing darker shirts was difficult and I always became conscious in meetings and when out and about with the team. It knocked my confidence tenfold, so I started avoiding situations where I had to meet large groups of people or even walking with others around the hospital or other sites. Heading into meetings or conducting interviews was very difficult when I had to engage with wet sleeves! At one stage, I even found myself popping to the toilet to use hand towels to mop up.”
“I know it may seem dramatic, but I was becoming so self-conscious and was convinced that other people were judging me for my excessive sweating, whether colleagues or friends outside of work. I’ve always enjoyed exercise and keeping fit, but my sweating made even that feel worse. I honestly was at my wits’ end.”
“I tried using talc at home in the morning, but it was messy and uncomfortable. Having trailed the web for hours, I eventually found the Odaban website and was interested in the reviews. I liked the idea of a spray which seemed easy to use and worked overnight in the privacy of my own home.”
“I now use Odaban around two or three times a week and have recommended it to loads of my friends. It’s amazing how many people put up with excessive sweating but secretly worry and lose self-confidence because it’s embarrassing and they feel they have nowhere to turn. I’ve even reconsidered my view of other people’s recommendations about problems like this – I’ve found something which works for me and it’s got my quality of life back and I’m delighted to take the opportunity to tell people!”
Why ODABAN® Is Different?
ODABAN® Antiperspirant Spray is one of the most effective and long lasting solutions available for people who suffer from excessive sweating. Unlike other treatments, ODABAN® is affordable, easy to use and has been the secret no-sweat weapon for many people for over 40 years.
ODABAN® is very easy to use: its versatile pump spray provides precise application to all parts of the face and body, avoiding the risk of over-application, which is one of the key reasons other products can fail to help. The active ingredient in ODABAN® produces partial-poral plugs, which in turn create a drying effect on the skin without blocking the sweat glands. Silicone is also included to help protect the skin from dehydration and spread the formulation more evenly. One application of ODABAN® can last for up to seven days making it one of the most impressive solutions on the market for excessive sweating.
Within a few days, most individuals will find they are getting the protection they have been looking for because ODABAN® regulates the rate of sweating, leading to drier skin, reduced odour issues, unsightly sweat stains as well as painful chafing. Simply apply sparingly at bed time, when the skin is at its driest and wash off the treated area the next morning. ODABAN® is 100% free of perfumes and allergy inducing ingredients therefore it can be used over most areas of the body.
So raise your arms with confidence – just like Jack!
