Back To Certain Dri! Review & Giveaway!
While you may feel that excessive underarm perspiration is your problem, alone, there are millions of people --women and men, of all ages and races -- who suffer from this condition, known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Perhaps the embarrassment causes you to worry about body odor, avoid certain social situations, to alter your clothing selections or to avoid settings that you know will cause excessive perspiration.
Now, with Certain Dri® Anti-Perspirant with New! 72 Hour Protection from excessive underarm sweating, also available in a new solid application!
Certain Dri Product Facts
Antiperspirants are the choice for controlling wetness, since the most common active ingredients, aluminum compounds, block the pores to inhibit the release of sweat and help absorb odor-causing moisture. However, for people have been diagnosed with axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms) or who feel that they suffer from excessive perspiration on a regular basis or occasionally, due to stress, occupation, etc., there is:
Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant Roll-On:
This doctor-recommended, non-prescription product is applied several times a week at bedtime.
According to an independent survey, a majority of dermatologists prefer the Certain Dri® formula for treating hyperhidrosis or excessive perspiration, over the formulae in all the other anti-perspirants combined.
Certain Dri® is colorless, fragrance free and has been categorized as safe and effective in the ongoing review of non-prescription drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Because of its therapeutic ingredient, Certain Dri® is used differently from all other anti-perspirants.
It is applied sparingly at bedtime, and it will not wash off after bathing/showering.
In many cases, the user will discover that it will not be necessary to apply Certain Dri® every night to control the problem.
Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant is available with 12 percent aluminum chloride, the active ingredient used in prescription anti-perspirants. Because Certain Dri® is water-based (vs. alcohol-based like its prescription competitors), it is available without a doctor’s prescription.
If you prefer a solid application there is New! Certain Dri® Solid Anti-Perspirant
Created specifically to complete the line of Certain Dri antiperspirant products for those who want the same 72-hour protection from excessive underarm perspiration in a solid application.
The product is specially-formulated to provide everyday, all-day dryness for those who suffer from excessive underarm perspiration.
Certain Dri® Solid Anti-Perspirant contains 25% aluminum sesquichlorohydrate (Anhydrous). It is the only over-the-counter antiperspirant with this ingredient, which is more effective than the aluminum zirconium formula found in over-the-counter solid antiperspirants that are labeled “clinical strength.”
Seasons Change but Some Things Don't
Millions of You Are Still Dealing with Problematic Perspiration
No Sweat Fashion Tips
Dermatologist/Author, David Bank, M.D., Offers Tips for Staying Dry This Winter
With cooler temperatures among us, the uncomfortable feeling and worry about perspiration is a thing of the past for many men and women; however, this isn't the case for the millions of you who suffer from excessive perspiration, also known as hyperhidrosis.
Even in cooler temperatures, sweating can be an issue. In fact, according to two national surveys conducted for Certain Dri:
Forty-five percent of U.S. adults* – which translates to almost 110 million people – report that perspiration is either “sometimes” or “often” a problem for them and 25 percent of these respondents indicated their perspiration “is the same regardless of season”
Thirty percent of U.S. adults** – which translates to more than 70 million people nationwide – admit to suffering from problematic foot sweat and three-quarters of this group also battle foot odor. What’s more 13 percent of these respondents also indicated that their feet always feel excessively sweaty, regardless of the season.
As you know, during the cooler months, excessive perspiration is not only brought on by warm indoor temperatures and heavier clothing but also by stress and even every day tasks. Contrary to belief, people do not sweat less in cooler weather months. Our bodies still lose up to a quart of fluid a day, but it’s more noticeable. Someone with excessive perspiration, or hyperhidrosis, as it’s called, will perspire even more, no matter what season it is. Not to worry, below Dr. David Bank, medical advisor to Certain Dri, offers these tips on how to feel and stay dry during the cooler months while wearing the latest fashions:
Curb the waterworks…while you sleep: Look for Certain Dri® Anti-Perspirant Roll-On with 12 percent aluminum chloride, which is the same active ingredient in prescription-strength antiperspirants, but in a gentler, non-alcohol formula. Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant is clinically tested and dermatologist-recommended as the most effective solution for excessive underarm perspiration, as well as for occasional, excessive perspiration due to stress, heat, sports, occupation, etc. Now available in a SOLID application.
Layer Up: If you are still concerned that you might develop noticeable sweaty pits or if you experience back sweat from time to time, consider wearing a form fitting undershirt or tank top made of a fabric that wicks away perspiration from the body. This will leave you feeling dry and worry free all day.
Chill Out: Consider relaxation techniques, such as yoga. This can help to control the stress that can also trigger perspiration. “Many times people who suffer from excessive perspiration also worry about it so much that they create a spiral effect. Suffering from excessive perspiration can be a debilitating condition on an emotional, social and functional level,” says Dr. Bank.
Stomp Out Sweat and Odor: To help keep your feet dry during the day, apply new Certain Dri Feet Moisture Control Pads to your feet at night. Formulated with 12 percent aluminum chloride and approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association, your feet will feel dry an fresh all day. For added protection and to combat foot odor sprinkle new Certain Dri Feet Microsponge Powder on your feet each morning. The powder contains the patented Microsponge Delivery System that is triggered into action with heat, friction or moisture to release five odor fighting ingredients that provide several levels of odor defense.
Eat and Drink Right: Keep in mind certain foods and beverages can exacerbate an excessive perspiration problem and also cause increased body odor, such as drinks that contain caffeine or foods that contain high amounts of garlic or onions. If over-the-counter options don’t solve the issue of excessive sweating for you personally, you should speak to a dermatologist or other health professional about a stronger prescription antiperspirant or other options available.

I used Certain Dri years ago and I had forgotten how wonderfully effective it is! I was given the new solid to try out and I must say that I'm in love with Certain Dri all over again! I can't for the life of me, remember why I stopped using Certain Dri! But a niggling in the back of my mind says that like all of us at one time or another, I decided to try a designer brand or new-fangled product that would also make me feel like a queen! Obviously after years of trying one product after another with no satisfaction, I'm now back on the band-wagon for Certain Dri! I've learned my lesson! It's so lovely staying dry and knowing that I'm using a product that puts its money where its mouth is! I would recommend Certain Dri to everyone!
Disclosure: I was given Certain Dri Solid in order to conduct an honest review. No monetary agreement was contracted! At no time was I asked for a favorable review! If I say something is good, then IT IS GOOD!
