Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use DRITAL powder?
DRITAL comes in a convenient shaker bottle to allow you evenly disperse enough powder to cover the affected area with ease. You can use our product up to three times a day as required. We recommend avoiding broken or weeping skin, face and head areas.
What are the ingredients used in DRITAL?
DIRTAL uses three main ingredients. Corn Starch (also known as maize starch) comes from kernels and acts as thickening agent in our powder.
Zinc Oxide is a white powdery mineral found in many personal care products such as skin protectants, and Diphemanil Methylsulfate is a compound which blocks the sweat gland.
Who will benefit from using DRITAL?
Our vision is for DRITAL is to provide relief and comfort to a wide range of individuals with many sweat and moisture-related issues. Our customers find it highly successful in combating excessive sweating, skin chafing, and irritation, and it also absorbs perspiration in the feet and prevents foot odour. DRITAL is for use on external areas of the body, below the neck.
Why is DRITAL called a perspiration controlling powder?
Under current TGA regulations, a product is an antiperspirant if it contains only Aluminium, Zinc or Zirconium salt. DRITAL contains Diphemanil Methylsulfate in addition to Zinc Oxide, therefore cannot be called an anti-perspirant.
Is DRITAL a suitable replacement to the discontinued Prantal Powder?

alternative solution yet still use the active ingredient Diphemanil Methylsulfate, which is a safe and reliable ingredient.
