Behind the Brand
Duradry was founded by Jack Benzaquen. As a teenager, Jack started to experience heavy underarm sweating and was diagnosed with hyperhidrosis. He struggled to manage his condition and tried every solution he could think of — wearing loose dark clothing, washing regularly, using both store-bought and prescription antiperspirants, and even getting botox injections — but nothing seemed to keep him dry. Several years in, Jack was beginning to feel hopeless, but was also noticing that more of his peers were struggling with similar excessive sweating issues. He wondered why an effective solution to hyperhidrosis didn’t exist, and this very thought marked the beginning of the Duradry journey.
With a degree in Systems Engineering, Jack dove headfirst into researching every existing treatment on the market, analyzing the ingredients and reading hundreds of peer-reviewed medical studies. After months of research, Jack hired a chemist to develop Duradry’s formula, using proven ingredients with sweat-blocking properties. Following product development, he spent another several months on testing and finding a suitable manufacturer, ultimately launching Duradry in 2014. From a self-funded research project to one of the most widely-used hyperhidrosis treatments in the US, Duradry offers a truly effective solution for the millions of Americans who suffer from uncontrollable excessive sweating.
