Leaping Fish Rowers Rub Skin Balm 60g

Leaping Fish Rowers Rub Skin Balm 60g


Rowers Rub is a natural barrier to help prevent chafing and rubbing when rowing, kayaking or canoeing. Leaping Fish products are made from premium natural ingredients that are organic, vegan and vegetarian where possible to minimise the impact on the environment. The natural oils help prevent water-borne infection and help your skin recover after exercise, and smell wonderfully of Clove and Cajeput.

Developed by a rower for all water-based sports, Rowers Rub is a natural chemical-free answer to the problem of sores and chafing caused by rubbing and perspiration during hard exercise or endurance events. The friction caused by rubbing can get worse with changes in pressure, warmth and humidity, and the irritation then develops to abraded skin which becomes open to getting infections from dirty water or the environment. Blisters can form from the shear effect when one layer of skin separates from another due to repeated movement caused by rubbing and pressure, leading to damage to the underlying layers where the nerves are, which results in feeling pain and discomfort and impairing your ability to perform at your best. On the surface of the skin, the salts and other by-products leached during sweating also contribute to the soreness. The application of Rowers Rub puts a thin layer of natural waxes and oils over your skin to reduce friction, and stops the salts from reaching the skin whilst allowing the skin to breathe. The essential oils also naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria. 

Unlike many other products, Rowers Rub:
  • is made from natural ingredients including plant waxes and essential oils
  • is non-greasy, it lies on the skin to create a protective surface whilst allowing the skin to breathe and prevents the  by-products of sweat from irritating the skin further.
  • includes essential oils including Clove and Cajaput to provide anti-bacterial properties for river and still-water based activities to help reduce infection.
  • has a combination of specially chosen essential oils tp help protect your skin.
  • is hypoallergenic - nothing but premium ingredients - no water, chemicals, silicons or Parabens

Ben Ajayi-Obe took Rowers Rub on the Atlantic Discovery Talisker Whiskey transatlantic challenge, completing the crossing in 40 days.

Rowers Rub contains just Rapeseed oil, soya wax, glycerine, cocoa butter, Bees wax, Zea Mays and Clove and Cajeput essentials oils: no chemicals, parabens, water or petroleum products. 

The premium ingredients in Rowers Rub ensure that it will become a natural barrier to keep you comfortable. Store in a cool pace away from direct sunlight, and avoid contamination with water.

Available in a recyclable/resuable 60g tin.
