Published on 2017-08-08. Author : SpecialChem

Skin Care Products for Cyclists


Head Coach Dean Peterson said:

"As we have done with team helmets and other pieces of equipment, we look at each individual piece of 'gear' that our student-cyclists use as a crucial part of their performance. Evaluating the ingredients of our chamois cream was a step towards ensuring we are using the safest and most reliable products in our training and racing. The fact that bluerub® is local and involved with many of our existing community and retail partners was icing on the cake."

The absence of silicone (dimethicone) and petroleum in bluerub®'s products was a big draw for the Marian Cycling program, as the coaching staff wanted to reduce the impact of chemicals that riders were applying to their skin.

Bluerub® co-owner Jon Schackmuth shared:

"Our skin is the largest organ in our body, with a surface area of over 21 square feet and accounts for 6% to 10% of body weight. Chemicals absorb directly through the skin and into the blood stream causing toxic effects."

Beginning this fall, all Marian cyclists will use bluerub® Chamois Cream as well as their Muscle Rub, Anti-Chafe stick, and hand repair cream. The Knights return to school in mid-August to launch their studies and begin defense of their five-straight Division 1 Team Omnium titles.

Schackmuth commented:

"We're pleased that our products will be available to the student-athletes of the Marian University Cycling Team in 2017 and beyond. A program of this caliber says a lot about bluerub® and the confidence Coach Peterson has in our product."
