Skin easily becomes blistered, chafed or irritated from constant rubbing and friction from clothes and shoes, as well as when moisture is trapped on the skin. ChafeX works to prevent these skin insults using our innovative MicroLayer Technology formula which actually emulates the skin, resulting in stronger, healthier skin for extended pain-free activity. Just about every other product we know of that claims to prevent chafing and blistering has similar ingredients (waxes, silicone, lanolin and/or petroleum) that only rest on the skin. Their effectiveness, if any at all, is usually very temporary. ChafeX does not contain any of these ingredients. When developing ChafeX , we started with the scientific understanding that your body is protected by layer after layer of integrated skin tissue. As more skin cells form at the lower levels, protective Keratin forms on top layers. These exfoliate daily, renewing your skin. But during exercise, moisture, sweat, clothing and friction cause the skin to exfoliate too many layers , too quickly, including protective Keratin. The result is tender skin exposed to chafing, blistering and other skin irritations. Using innovative chemistry, Simply Better Laboratories created our unique Layers that Last formula that supports your skin’s natural protection mechanism.
