LAS VEGAS, March 20, 2019 -- Thompson Tee, makers of a complete line of patented sweat-proof tee shirts, is proud to announce the sale of its one millionth tee shirt, marking an exciting milestone in the rapid growth of the startup company.
Armed with patented HydroShield sweat-proof technology, Thompson Tee offers the ultimate protection from sweat marks, odor and yellow stains in a lightweight, breathable fabric. The 100 percent U.S. manufactured line includes men's and women's tee shirts in a variety of colors, fits, and necklines to suit the needs of every body and personal style.
It is estimated that 6 percent of the global population suffers from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweat, and that half of those cases are axillary hyperhidrosis, where the condition is present specifically in the underarms. Though the condition is relatively common and has nothing to do with personal hygiene, it can be embarrassing and damaging to self-esteem, but the medical community has only recently begun to acknowledge it.
Co-founders Billy Thompson and Randy Choi sought to provide a safe, accessible and affordable alternative to the topical creams and deodorants that existed on the market, that they both had tried with no real results. With $10,000 apiece in startup capital, they created Thompson Tee, running the company and shipping packages from their homes. Following a successful stint on the popular television show Shark Tank, and an exponentially growing base of satisfied customers, Thompson Tee now boasts more than 250,000 customers across 135 countries.
"Though we are of course thrilled by the success this milestone represents for us as a company, we're truly gratified by the fact that one million Thompson Tees sold means that we've helped so many people significantly improve their lives," said CEO Billy Thompson. "It may seem like such a small thing, but these tee shirts actually make a major difference in the quality of life of people dealing with axillary hyperhidrosis. That's what we're in this for, and we look forward to continuing to create innovative solutions to help those who deal with excessive sweat."
Thompson Tee is consistently expanding its line of sweat-proof clothing with new styles and is currently exploring additional sweat-proof products.
