What is sweat?

Sweat is completely normal, everybody sweats. Sweat is comprised of water, salts and other natural elements.

Sweat is the healthy response from our body to cool itself down. Sweat can be caused by:


  • Temperature: Body temperature increases when ambient temperature rises. Sweat evaporation on the skin helps cool our body down.
  • Emotions: Emotional stress increases our heart beats and triggers our body’s production of sweat
  • Food: Ingestion of food increases metabolism and leads to elevation in body temperature. This is also known as Gustatory sweating
