The company believes that the cloth applicator format will provide powerful on-the-go relief for those suffering from excessive sweating.
"We're excited to be able to deliver powerful sweat protection in a new, convenient format," says David Spratte, CEO of Carpe. "The antiperspirant wipes provide portable and versatile relief, and align with our goal to provide antiperspirant solutions for the whole body, because people don't just sweat under their arms. This is the first of several innovations that we look forward to rolling out this year."
Carpe currently offers a line of other sweat-reducing products, including a clinical-strength underarm antiperspirant and antiperspirant hand and foot lotions.
Carpe was founded by David Spratte and Kasper Kubica - then college roommates - when the duo realized that there were no effective over-the-counter options manage their sweaty hands caused by hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis, from which Spratte and Kubica both suffer, is marked by excessive sweating. The condition impacts roughly 15 million Americans. A disproportionate number of hyperhidrosis patients are young, with approximately 17% of teens suffering from the condition.
Spratte continues, "Although we founded Carpe to create a solution for hyperhidrosis patients, we've since built a broad and diverse fan base. Today our products are enjoyed by business professionals, tennis players, joggers, and more. We hope that our antiperspirant wipes provide one more way for all kinds of users to enjoy refreshing and reliable sweat protection."
The antiperspirant wipes are currently available without a prescription on CarpeLotion.com and Amazon.com. A pack of 15 wipes is currently available for a discounted launch price of $14.95, with a final retail value of $19.95.
