Let’s talk about our morning antiperspirant, Duradry® AM, part of our 2-product system to treat your excessive underarm sweating. By the end of this post you will have a complete understanding of what makes Duradry® AM the perfect complement to its nighttime teammate, Duradry® PM.

We’re all curious about what’s inside our favorite snacks. You can see it on a bag of chips, past the nutritional facts onto “ingredients”. You recognize fructose, corn syrup, and the like. But when you encounter ingredients like monoglycerides or monosodium glutamate, you think… “What?”
We know that most people aren’t fluent in chemistry, and that’s ok! Like all antiperspirant products, we use compound molecules with equally unfamiliar names like “Zinc Ricinoleate”. We’re here to get you the details of what these ingredients really do, to help you make an informed decision.
Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly (AZTG)
It’s the active ingredient in Duradry® AM’s formula. Although it has a long name, it is straightforward in its effect. It works by forming a plug in the sweat gland, which limits outward sweat flow, keeping you dry throughout the day. AZTG is like a defensive line in football, preventing sweaty offense from getting through.
Every antiperspirant in the market uses similar aluminum based active ingredients, so why is our main ingredient more effective?
Simple, AZTG has anhydrous properties, meaning that it’s water-free. This enhances sweat absorption efficiency. It seems like a no-brainer to use the purest and strongest ingredient for optimum effect. However, not all products perform as Duradry® AM. There are many reasons, but these two are the main ones:
- Specific pH of our active ingredient. We buy custom ordered batches of active ingredient with a specific pH profile to make it more effective. So even if other products list the “same” ingredient, we assure you, it’s not the same.
- There are other ingredients in the formula that support the active ingredient performance.
Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate
Acting as an added layer of sweat protection, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate has various purposes. And it works flawlessly due to its properties:
- Excels in absorbency. It’s the best ingredient for soaking up moisture and keeping you dry
- Naturally prevents product from clumping on your skin. This allows you to freely pick that sleeveless shirt from your closet without worries!
If Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly is the linebacker of Duradry® AM’s perspiration defense team, then Zinc Ricinoleate is the deep safety rounding up the loose ends in the form of odor absorption. This is a team effort!
Zinc Ricinoleate naturally absorbs and traps odor molecules, providing comfort and peace of mind to the user. This zinc salt comes from a fatty acid found in castor seed oil, which is derived from the Ricinus communis plant.
Essentially, Zinc Ricinoleate and AZTG are a two-punch combination in our antiperspirant defense.
Dimethicone and Petrolatum
These moisturizers are like the coaches on the sidelines. They are the major support to winning the game. It’s a good thing they are on your team!
The defense needs someone to keep conditions favorable and under control. In our case, we use a measured solution of Dimethicone and Petrolatum (aka petroleum jelly).
These two agents work together to:
- Create a moisturized coat over the applied area
- Keep skin hydrated longer
- Reduce friction
Due to the strength of our system, the solution we have developed is targeted at maintaining high-capacity hydration and lubrication to the applied areas. This helps in reducing irritation, flakiness, and chafing.
The big teams now that the right shoes, shirt and protection have an impact on players’ performance. Every detail of our products is meticulously chosen. We want you to take advantage of the best product and make us your team for every game.
Solid Stick Applicator
The solid stick is a tried and true applicator due to its direct approach. Other products have issues creating an application method that won’t stain your clothes or leave marks. Which is like fixing one problem (excessive sweat) and replacing it with different ones.
Advantages of using our Solid Stick Applicator:
- No white streaks
- No dripping
- Made for on-the-go mornings
- Dry when applied and stays that way
- Safe from accidental contact with sensitive areas (eyes, mouth)
- Our stick is creamy yet dry. You apply it dry and it stays dry
