  • LAVAREDO ULTRA TRAIL

    The Lavaredo Ultra Trail is an 120km endurance race at 5800m+ of ascent, which is about 22+ hours of trail running on hard technical trails through mountains, forests and boulder fields. The sun is very bright in the mountains with temperatures exceeding 25 degrees C the entire time and this is my review of testing the Chafe Stick during my race.

    "The hardest part of the expedition was spending two days rowing in a storm going in the opposite direction. We rowed 0 nautical miles for two days when our average was 75 nautical miles a day. This was physically and mentally the most taxing moment of the expedition and happened right in the middle of our trip."

  • How to avoid dry skin in the winter

    As the temperature drops, the humidity drops, too. So if the air is drier than your skin it can suck out your precious fluids, so that’s the first problem.
  • Why are my hands so dry?

    Endurance sport gives me the chance to push myself in ways I never thought possible. There are life lessons to be taken from sport- resilience, patience, perseverance.  I’ve found that developing these through sport gives me an edge to push harder in everyday life.  Ultimately, endurance sport reminds me almost daily that we can do just about anything we put our mind to and that the limits are where we set them!

    "Winter Climbing for me is the ultimate adventure, it’s a massive mental challenge as well as a physical one. Bringing yourself to persevere with the harsh conditions, freezing cold and quite a bit of waiting at belay ledges in between getting through some challenging climbing brings a feeling I’m unable to explain, a sort of buzz of accomplishment and gratefulness of life, a feeling that has kept me returning for more."

  • TESS CAKEBREAD-BROWN

    “I had such a huge battle with my head to find the courage to ride harder tracks/conquer obstacles. So to have conquered so many mental barriers on my journey is really rewarding and is a big part of what keeps me pushing to continuously improve.”

  • SARAH McCORMACK

    This was a huge unexpected result for a year that started off not only with the onset of the covid pandemic (and the cancellation of all races and group training) but also a very badly sprained ankle that took a few months to heal.

  • Where can chafing occur?

    Chafing happens to your skin due to stress caused by friction and moisture. Your skin is made up of three distinct layers, the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis, when subjected to friction and moisture these delicate layers of your skin wear away creating a chafing wound that can be anything from mild to severe.

  • What is vegan skincare?

    We could never knowingly include anything in our products that we thought may have caused the suffering or mistreatment of animals in anyway, which is why we choose to eliminate any ingredient that we feel may have the slightest chance of the hurt or mistreatment of animals.

  • What does sustainable mean?
