There are two types of sweat glands:

Ec­crine glands are dis­trib­uted through­out the body and re­spon­si­ble for reg­u­lat­ing body tem­per­a­ture through the re­lease of sweat.

Apocrine glands, also known as scent glands, are found in the armpits and groins. Apocrine glands are re­spon­si­ble for body odour as the sweat pro­duced is high in pro­tein and fatty acids, which bac­te­ria can break down eas­ily. plug in the gland, tem­po­rar­ily halt­ing sweat pro­duc­tion.

How­ever, the ker­atin plug is not a per­ma­nent fix­ture as it is ex­pelled with the shed­ding of dead skin cells. It takes two to seven days for this process to com­plete a cy­cle, which ex­plains the need to only ap­ply Per­spirex two to three times a week.

Wash off in the fol­low­ing morn­ing with soap and wa­ter. There is no need to reap­ply. For a start, use Per­spirex every night un­til you have achieved the de­sired ef­fect (usu­ally within a week).

For sen­si­tive skin, ap­ply every sec­ond night for two weeks. There­after, ap­ply Per­spirex two to three nights a week or as of­ten as your body needs. Do not use 48 hours af­ter hair re­moval.
