Rowers Hand Rub is a different blend of waxes and oils to help the hands recover when they are subjected to tough outdoor conditions – the ingredients act as humectants to restore the suppleness of the skin and the Bergamot, Star Anise and Rosemary essential oils have antibiotic, disinfectant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities and to prevent the skin cracking. The Hand Rub has also been used successfully by builders, landscape gardeners, kitchen staff and others who experience dry, irritated or chapped skin, as well as rowers with gnarly hands.
Leaping Fish’s Rubs are balms, not creams or lotions as these by definition contain water, so the Rubs are made just from plant waxes (some contain beeswax) and essential oils, and our intention was to make them as simple as possible and chemical and Paraben-free (Parabens are commonly used as stabilisers and preservatives and some studies have suggested a link with cancers). Their simplicity makes them hypoallergenic and are concentrated so a little goes a long way, making them cost effective – prevention is better than cure, and so every rower should have some in their kit bag.
Always test on a small area of skin before general use. Avoid contamination with water which can cause the balm to deteriorate. Store in a cool place.
