Everyone sweats, but some sweat more than others. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating that affects nearly 5% of the global population, so when we say you’re not alone, we really mean it. There’s no need to be ashamed of sweating, but we understand that sweating excessively can take a physical, emotional, and mental toll on a person. In fact, hyperhidrosis is known to severely negatively impact the quality of life and general wellbeing of its sufferers, which is why we developed an anti-sweat device to help those affected by the condition and offer them some relief in the form of comfort and dryness.
Part of our mission is to destigmatize and normalize the topic of sweating, which is why we are launching this contest to find the “world’s sweatiest person”. Truth is, it’s pretty impossible to measure. No matter how little or how much you sweat, it impacts everyone differently, so we’re not looking to find who is objectively the sweatiest person, but rather have people from all over the world come forward, share their story, and talk about sweat!
