USP 31

(Aluminum Chlorohydrate). A 15% w/w solution in water has a pH of 3.0 to 5.0

💊 Profile

Aluminium chlorohydrate is used similarly to aluminium chloride in hyperhidrosis. Single-ingredient products for hyperhidrosis generally have a concentration in the range of 10 to 25%. Aluminium chlorohydrate is also included in a variety of dermatological preparations for its astringent and antiperspirant properties.

Aluminium toxicity.

Bone pain, extreme fatigue, and raised aluminium concentrations in a woman with normal renal function were attributed to the use of an antiperspirant cream containing aluminium chlorohydrate 20%. She had been applying about 1 g of cream to each underarm daily for 4 years. Within 8 months of stopping the antiperspirant, plasma-aluminium concentrations had returned to normal and symptoms had resolved.1
