- have a short ingredient list (i.e. low fragrances or dyes) to avoid chemical sensitivities
- protect against dry air and any soap or other chemicals to which you may be sensitive or allergic
- and consist active healing substances for relieving blisters and Puffiness.

Rowtex Hand Cream – some backgrounds
Rowtex, the Austrian Rowing experts in skin protection has a new product in the portfolio. As always the products of Rowtex were tested on athletes, not on animals. It is made in Germany. The environmentally-friendly chalk tube uses 70% less oil based raw materials.
About the ingredients
The active ingredient is Panthenol (Vitamin B5): The hand cream gets its anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties from panthenol. The unique properties contained in panthenol increase your skin’s ability to hold moisture, which reduces the risk of open blisters. The hand cream cares for your skin with calendula oil. Calendula oil contains anti-inflammatory and skin care properties that support and accelerate the regeneration of your skin after a hard rowing session. You will also reduce the amount of blister says Rowtex. With Ectoin, the hand cream strengthens your skin’s natural protective layer, thereby supporting existing natural protection measures – less blisters. The Cream you get in the Shop.
