Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating. It is thought to affect about 5% of the global population, or approximately 365 million people worldwide. It can affect anyone regardless of factors such as age, sex, or ethnicity. Hyperhidrosis is often referred to as the “silent handicap” because people who suffer this condition often feel socially and professionally paralized by their sweating. People who sweat too much will not want or find it difficult to date or see friends. They do not want to have jobs where they need to interact with people because they are so ashamed of who they are.
Tell us about the backgrounds of the founders ; their names, their partnership, their education.
Dermadry was founded by six friends who worked together on numerous different projects before deciding that treating excessive sweating was the best way for them to impact the world in a positive way. Their names are Maxime Calouche, Nicolas Jolicoeur, Mathieu Mireault, Amine Daoud, Richard Hilaire and Ainsi Dakhli.
Why Dermadry and how did they get to the final product?
We started Dermadry because one of the co-founders had hyperhidrosis (also known as excessive sweating) himself. The condition can take a significant toll on its sufferer, leading them to live and plan their life around the condition, even leading them to avoid social interaction and situations. People rarely talk about the condition nor seek medical help, leaving many to suffer in silence. We decided to invest ourselves in the mission to create an affordable, efficient, and practical solution to help people who suffered from this condition. That is why we created the world leading iontophoresis machine, a technology that effectively treats excessive sweating and gives long lasting results.
I’m sure there was plenty of trial and error while creating the brand, what is one big challenge that they’ve surmounted?
There were so many challenges since we are a medical device. The biggest one was getting our machine certified by Health Canada. We initially thought it would take six months, but we got it a little longer than that! It was a humbling experience to say the least to see that there are so many things that are out of your control when you start a business.
Explain how you developed the product and got it to the public?
One of the founders had excessive sweating himself. We designed a solution that fitted his needs. That way, we knew that our product really responded to the needs and wants of people who suffered from excessive sweating.
That’s what we would also recommend to other entrepreneurs, build a product that really responds to people’s needs and build it with them in mind. Always test your ideas in real time, so when it’s time to put it onto the market, you’ll know that you have the right product.
Where do you see Dermadry in the next 5 years? 10 years?
We want to become the reference point when it comes to treatment of excessive sweating. That means that we need to make our solution more accessible and make sure that people feel more comfortable about talking about excessive sweating. At the present moment, it’s such a taboo subject that most people are ashamed to talk about it.
Hyperhidrosis can be isolating, but it does not have to be. I am honored and grateful to have the chance to help people with hyperhidrosis find additional support and resources, and encourage them to break their silence and share their stories.
What is a BIG goal you wish to achieve with this company?
Getting hyperhidrosis recognised as a medical condition. Dermadry is on its way of becoming the first iontophoresis machine in Canada and now, the world leading iontophoresis machine. The goal is to continue breaking the taboo surrounding sweat so that this condition can be taken seriously and given the proper research and treatment development it deserves.
What are your future plans on growth and expansion?
Dermadry’s vision for the next few years is to democratize the treatment of sweating. Indeed, we sincerely believe that each of us would benefit from treating their sweating. Whether it’s the Sunday sportsman or sportswoman who finds their shoes smelly or the business woman or man who doesn’t want to get sweaty hands before an important meeting, we believe that everyone can benefit from having a Dermadry at home!
To do this, we believe in creating an atmosphere where people feel comfortable talking about their excessive sweating. Our goal will be to play down excessive sweating, which today is considered the “taboo topic” because no one dares to talk about it.
In addition, thanks to our nascent links with the academic research community, with the University of Montreal and health professionals, we want to make Montreal the world centre for research on the treatment of excessive sweating.
What does success represent to you both?
Success for us means to help as many people as possible. We’re committed to making sure everyone who suffers from excessive sweating can treat their condition thanks to our machine. There’s no better feeling knowing that you truly impacted someone’s life in a positive way.
What motivates you?
Excessive sweating does affect the quality of life of many people world wide. It’s really important to know that they are not alone. We created this community of hyperhidrosis advocates and we want to continue talking about the medical condition and help up-lift each other’s spirits.
What inspires you to keep growing?
We’ve been able to build remarkable relationships with customers worldwide, providing a service for those who are affected by hyperhidrosis. With the great team we have we are able to continue providing first-class service to our customers, recruit excellent new employees, and advance the technology that will fuel the next great chapter of Dermadry.
