About SweatBlock

The SweatBlock Story

SweatBlock was born in 2004 when Scott Steffensen, a renowned Ph.D., researcher, and professor struggled to find a solution for his own sweat problem.

Taking matters into his own hands, he developed the original SweatBlock wipes. They worked amazingly well (kept him dry for 7 days straight before needing to reapply). So, he decided to share it with the world.

Since 2004, SweatBlock has become the foremost brand for excessive sweating and odor with products for underarms, hands, feet, face and body.

Today, SweatBlock is the #1 Clinical Strength Antiperspirant sold online and has helped hundreds of thousands solve their embarrassing sweat problems.

With an estimated 50 million days of dry delivered to our customers, we like to think that nearly 1 billion moments of embarrassment have been avoided because of SweatBlock.

The Reason for All This...

We know what it feels like when sweat ruins the moment, the mood, the wardrobe, and the self-confidence.

We know what it’s like to search high and low for a solution to stop sweat, only to be disappointed time and again.

That’s why we love what we do so much…

Nearly everyday, our customers tell us how relieved they are because they finally found something that will stop their sweat…

... something that helps eliminate embarrassment when they socialize

... something that allows them to wear the clothes they’ve avoided because of sweat

... something that lets them enjoy life’s most important moments

... something that helps them to just feel… normal.

So, do we love what we do? Absolutely.
