The original Carpe solution for sweaty hands. Designed to be as effective as possible, but also non-irritating and residue-free, Carpe Hand is dermatologist-recommended and effective.
Apply to dry hands every night before bed and again in the morning. You'll see immediate effects, but maximum efficacy is achieved after about 4 weeks of daily use. Consistently applying at night and in the morning is critical to preventing sweat from ruining your day.

When we (Carpe founders David Spratte and Kasper Kubica) met as freshmen in college, we realized that we had an embarrassing secret in common: Very sweaty hands. Inspired by conversations that David had been having with dermatologists about the lack of a simple solution for this, we set to work answering a simple question: Why can’t we have an antiperspirant for our hands, like we do for our underarms?
The development process took over a year, and well over sixty prototypes – working with experts in formulation, dermatologists specializing in hyperhidrosis, and dozens of sweaty people just like ourselves, we kept improving and testing the formula, until we’d created something that we were personally using every day. Today, that formula (prototype 63) is Carpe Antiperspirant Hand Lotion.
The secret to Carpe’s leading product is the unique mix of active ingredient (aluminum sesquichlorohydrate at 15%) with carefully selected (and exhaustively tested) supporting molecules, which range from sweat absorbing powders to natural eucalyptus oil. To use the product, wash and dry your hands (you always want to apply Carpe Hand to clean, dry hands), apply a pea-sized amount to your palms, and rub it in. If your hands are a bit wet, you may feel some tackiness for a few seconds – otherwise, the rubdown will be quick and smooth, avoiding the awful sweat-inducing greasiness of regular lotions.
Once the Carpe Hand is on, you’ll barely notice it – our first goal in formulation was efficacy, but we worked hard to create a product that we could use all day, every day, without anybody noticing that we had Carpe Hand on our hands. This meant minimizing residue and not settling for any amount of irritation (note that a small number of people have a eucalyptus allergy, which may cause itchiness when using Carpe Hand).
Since creating Carpe Hand, we’ve tested it exhaustively, and read hundreds of scientific studies about antiperspirants and sweating – and we found that Carpe works best to reduce sweat when used every evening before bed, and every morning before starting the day. And the results stack: It takes full four weeks of consistent use to reach maximum efficacy.
To date, hundreds of thousands of people have tried and loved Carpe Antiperspirant Hand Lotion (including us!) – join the team and try it today!
