Singapore has been facing prolonged dry weather for weeks and the National Environment Agency said that the dry spell affecting Singapore since mid of January 2014 has set a new record for the driest month since 1869 (Source CNA). With no rain and minimal wind, the weather has been really hot and stuffy! Just a 10 mins walk to my office from the nearest bus stop will make me sweat buckets..
Sweating is our body’s natural response to the body to cool down when the core temperature is too high. Sweat (salt water) is secreted from pores in the skin then evaporated from the skin surface. This evaporation process radiates energy away from the skin, cooling the body. Sweat can be unpleasant as it will make us feel sticky and in worse case it will bring about a peculiar smell (Stale sweat aka body odour). Sweat in itself does not smell but body odour is caused when bacterial waste products found naturally on the skin thrive in humid, sweaty environments. Armpits offer an especially favorable environment for odour. Hence, it is very important to maintain good hygiene so that you will smell good despite of the hot weather 🙂
Besides taking regular shower which is crucial to destroying the bacteria that feeds on the moisture produced under arms, make application of anti-perspirant a daily habit as well. I’m currently using anti-perspirant from Triple Dry as its product formulations are antibacterial to prevent odour-causing bacteria. It will also control excess perspiration and is clinically proven to protect against dryness for 72 hours.
Triple Dry is a specialist anti-perspirant for heavy perspiration, not simply a deodorant. An Anti-perspirant limits both adour and wetness by reducing the volume of perspiration as well as fight the root cause of odour. Normal deodorant can only fight bacteria and masks odour created by perspiration.
Triple Dry started out in the UK in 1970 and it was called ‘Linden Voss’ previously (till the year 2000). Throughout the period, Linden Voss is a well established brand, commanding a significant share of the UK anti-perspirant market. In 1999, the brand was purchased by Lornamead, a leading marketer of personal care brands, and the whole range of products was relabeled as ‘Triple Dry'(Inspired by its unique triple active formula offering comprehensive protection).
In 2008, the brand was repostioned with a dynamic new packaging image to further promote the uniqueness of the triple active formula and strengthen its recognition in the market. With over 30 years of manufacturing experience, Triple Dry now is one of the leading anti-perspirant brands in the UK, with a solid reputation and recognized expertise providing confidence assurance to its customers.
Triple Dry is the first anti-perspirant in the market to create a combined concentrated and unique formula of 3 highly efficacious and clinically proven anti-perspirant aluminium salt actives: Aluminum Sesquichlorohydrate, Aluminium Chlorohydrate and Aluminium Chloropydrex (PG) which provide long-lasting and responsive protection.
Unlike the way most deodorants operate, Triple Dry is absorbed into pores where the sweat glands function. From there, it directly regulates the amount of sweat the body releases. This explains why the effect will last even after washing and therefore, no reapplication is needed. With its quick dry effect and clinically proven 72 hour protection, the Triple Dry series is ideal for all adults to control excess perspiration. Triple Dry is also easy use and 1 application in 3 days or 2 applications a week is all that’s needed*
*Simply apply Triple Dry for 4 consecutive nights and wash as per normal in the morning. After the first 4 applications, 1 application every 2 to 3 days is all that is needed.
Consumers are extremely satisfied with the performance of Triple Dry as they felt that it works better than other brands. Triple Dry works differently from most anti-perspirants. Rather than masking the odour caused by sweating, Triple Dry’s active ingredients combat sweating itself. . Triple Dry’s efficient action is a proven way of reducing sweat as it will reduce the moisture releases in the area of application, and by doing so it creates a less favorable environment for the growth of bacteria that causes body odour. Triple Dry’s superior formulation also makes it able to withstand exposure to water without losing its effectiveness, so there is no need to reapply it after coming in contact with water.
Triple Dry has sent me their products from the Unfragranced Anti-Perspirant & Fresh Anti-Perspirant Refreshing Ladies Fragrance ranges for review (Thank you!) and it has certainty come in really handy during his period.
Triple Dry’s anti-perspirant products are made for people with excessive or abnormal perspiration levels (My hubby is an example) as well as for people who simply want maximum protection and reassurance (Like myself).

Have tried both the Triple Dry Fresh Anti-Perspirant Spray (Contains a mild floral refreshing scent) & Unfragranced Anti-Perspirant Spray and i have to say that it really work as claimed! Wasn’t expecting much from this product but i was proven wrong… Before using this product, my underarms will tend to sweat a lot and after using, i’m amazed to see that it works so well! There’s not much perspiration on my underarms as before so i need not walk about smelling ‘stale’. Both the spray does not irritate my skin and it does not block my pores. Once, i even tried it on ‘freshly shaved’ underarms but it doesn’t sting (lol!). But if you have really sensitive skin, you should opt for the fragrance-free spray for more tender care. Both sprays doesn’t stain my clothes so you need not worry that it will leave yellow-ish stains on your clothings. Only rant is the price as it is more expensive compared to the regular anti-perspirants and deodorants. But since it works and contains three anti-perspirant ingredients, i would highly recommend it! 🙂
Triple Dry also has a range of anti-perspirant range made for the guys in mind. As male will tend to sweat more than female, Triple Dry also has the Active Anti-Perspirant Refreshing Male Fragrance range that will provide better assurance for the guys.

Before i go, here’s some tips that Triple Dry has to offer to stay smelling fresh:
1) Avoid masking body odour with perfume / cologne as both might mix and deviate. Just apply Triple Dry as it has a fragrance free formulation to prevent conflicting scent.
2) Buy quality perfume / cologne as cheap ones might react badly with your skin and will never smell like the original. Alteratively, you can make use of Triple Dry as it has a lightly scented range where its product formulations are skin conditioning to help reduce skin irritation.
3) Last but not least, sweat is inevitable, but can be beaten. Apply Triple Dry, its product formulations are effective even after showering, swimming and sport. Even the doctors are using it to stay dry all day 🙂
