Castelli Foul Weather Cream Castelli Foul Weather Cream
The sky is dark, those clouds in the distance look menacing, and the wind gusts are nothing short of icy. But you've got all afternoon, so against everyone else's better judgment, you're going out there for a ride, anyway. If you're in the habit of heading out on days like this, we'd recommend having Castelli's Foul Weather Cream on hand. When you apply the cream directly to skin, it acts as a shield against water, wind, and cold temperatures, convincing your muscles that they're being asked to labor in much less taxing conditions. Minimalists rejoice -- by applying it directly to your skin, the Foul Weather Cream eliminates the need to wear layers of bulky clothing to stay warm. If you're concerned about what types of chemicals Castelli uses to achieve this effect, rest assured that the formula does not contain petroleum, and that plant-based ingredients make up 57% of its composition.

Castelli Warming Embro Cream Castelli Warming Embro Cream
Sometimes tights or warmers don't feel like the right choice before a damp, chilly 'cross race or a cool training ride. For days when you need protection from the cold but don't want to sacrifice freedom of movement with extra layers, reach for Castelli's Warming Embro Cream. Castelli uses natural ingredients to make up 80% of the formula, and, upon contact with the skin, it creates a tingly, warming sensation, acting as a barrier between your skin and the unforgiving, icy air. Apply it directly to your legs a few minutes before you race or ride; it'll keep your muscles warm and encourage them to respond like they do on a warmer day without adding bulky clothing to your kit.

Doc's Skin Care Chafe Stick Doc's Skin Care Chafe Stick
In 2010, after working with chemists and pharmacists for four years, cyclist and physician Dr. 'Doc' Joshua Barton, MD, developed the ideal natural cream to form a protective, anti-friction barrier between the skin and chamois. Doc's All-Natural Chamois Cream was the result of his endeavor, becoming the company's best-seller and leading to a full range of other all-natural skin care products for cyclists, triathletes, runners, and endurance athletes. The Texas company now produces products that cover three areas of skin care needs: protection during sporting activities, repair when the aforementioned protection isn't enough, and aiding in normal recovery. Doc's Chafe Stick works to protect your skin during physical activities by creating an all-natural barrier between skin-to-skin and skin-to-clothing friction zones. Perfect for cyclists and triathletes, the stick is composed of safe, all-natural ingredients that provide maximum physical comfort and protection. Rub it on chafe-prone areas such as underarms, chest, thighs, and even your feet to keep your skin smooth and irritation-free. The stick also serves as an effective tool to help triathletes slide into wetsuits and shoes. Forget using other greasy substitute products made with fillers and chemicals.

Doc's Skin Care Massage Elixir Doc's Skin Care Massage Elixir
Doc's was founded as a result of Dr. 'Doc' Joshua Barton being unsatisfied with the quality of cycling-specific skin care creams available on the market. As a competitive cyclist himself, Barton worked with both pharmacists and chemists for four years inn order to produce a new line of all-natural skin care products designed specifically for athletes. The company launched in 2010 with an all-natural chamois cream, and now it provides a host of products, including the Massage Elixir, to world-class cyclists, triathletes, runners, and endurance athletes around the world. Doc's skin care line covers three areas: protection during sporting activities, repair when the aforementioned protection isn't enough, and aiding in normal recovery. Falling under the recovery category is Doc's Massage Elixir. This is a light formulation that provides excellent slip and glide that won't leave your skin feeling greasy. And because it's composed with natural botanicals, oils, and only the ingredients that're absolutely necessary and effective, the elixir absorbs quicker than most massage oils, leaving your skin moisturized and refreshed. Another benefit to using all-natural ingredients is that they're healthier and safer than the alternative chemicals that're commonly found in oils. Additionally, they also eliminate any chance of toxic chemicals from being absorbed through your skin and into your body. Doc's Massage Elixir leaves a light fragrance and is intended for use by either a masseuse or for self-massage before and after workouts. Doc's Massage Elixir comes in a 4. 5 ounce bottle and is manufactured in the USA.

Doc's Skin Care Muscle Balm Doc's Skin Care Muscle Balm
You know how important it is to address your body's recovery the minute that you hop off of the bike. This recovery can take many forms, from immediate hydration to consuming the nutrients that were expelled during your race. But, what are you doing about your muscles' In addition to your post-ride refueling and stretching routine, applying a quality muscle balm, like Doc's Skin Care Muscle Balm, provides you with a long-lasting, heated formula that both soothes and relaxes those aching muscle groups. Doc's all-natural Muscle Balm was developed to aid your body's recovery from riding-induced stress. Founded by cyclist and physician Dr. 'Doc' Joshua Barton in response to what he felt were ineffective and expensive cycling skincare creams, Doc's produces products that cover three areas of skin care needs: protection during sporting activities, repair when the aforementioned protection isn't enough, and aiding in normal recovery. Doc's Muscle Balm falls toward the latter, combining the natural pain-relieving qualities of capsicum with a host of essential oils. As a result, the balm provides you with a light and non-greasy formulation. Additionally, it features a light, pleasant fragrance that's derivative of the usage of botanical products such as evening primrose, rose hip, and rosemary. Use Doc's on its own or in conjunction with Doc's massage oil. Doc's Muscle Balm comes in a 4. 5 ounce bottle and is manufactured in the USA.

DZ Nuts Bald Leg Shaving Lotion DZ Nuts Bald Leg Shaving Lotion
Real men shave their legs. No less an authority than Andy Hampsten has been quoted as saying he enthusiastically took up shaving his gams when he realized just how much the ladies like it smooth. Hell, just one look at Dave Z's adorable off-spring will prove to you that his shaved legs earned his baby one gorgeous mommy. We're not here to guarantee it will do the same for you, but DZ Nuts Bald Leg Shaving Lotion will most certainly give you the smoothest looking legs on your Saturday morning group ride. How many times in a pinch have you lathered your legs with bath soap and lived to regret it' Probably more often than any of us would like to remember. But then again, who wants to bother with facial shaving creams or--horror of horrors--smell like your girlfriend or wife because you nicked her feminine cream rather than nick yourself. Dave Z has felt your pain and answers your quiet whimper. Bald Leg Shaving Lotion is a soothing, non-irritating cream which is designed to make shaving even the most gnarly, manly legs a breeze. The glide-enhancing ingredients lather a smooth coat on your legs to prevent razor burn, but will not clog up the razor. Since it is soap free, the formula will not leave skin uncomfortably dry or tight. And if in the past you have had problems with ingrown hairs or those horrid, itchy razor bumps, then this formula will bring back that initial euphoria, now long forgotten, of the first time you ran your hand over your freshly shaved leg only to feel the scratchy, painful bumps form five minutes later. Au contraire, it will leave the skin cool and soothed. Nothing says PRO like a freshly shaved pair of legs showing off that hard-earned sinewy definition. DZ Nuts Bald Leg Shaving Lotion will help turn what may have been your most dreaded grooming chore into five minutes of satisfying shearing.

DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation - 6.7 fl. oz. DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation - 6.7 fl. oz.
Who doesn't love a massage' DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation Cream will quickly become the pre-race rub-down that you will enjoy, even if you're stuck rubbing yourself. It has been formulated to be best used before rides or races where the weather isn't ideal. It warms and loosens the muscles so that you shouldn't suffer that creaky, sore-leg feeling those first ten minutes of a ride, no matter the weather. It also contains natural ingredients which create a protective barrier between the skin and any harsh cold or wet rain that may plague your day. InHeat employs natural vasodilators to help supply needed blood flow to the skin and muscles. Vasodilatation essentially refers to a dilation of blood vessels which increases the flow of blood due to a decrease in vascular resistance. The increased blood flow will improve your efficiency while exercising and keeping warmer and looser will protect you from injuring yourself by forcing tight muscles. Most of us have heard that our post-ride recovery relies heavily on how well we restore the glycogen in the muscles which has been depleted through exercise. But how many of us knew that glycogen is also depleted from the skin during the exertion caused by exercise and exposure to the elements' Using the DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation Cream will introduce plant-based polymers which deliver bio-mimetic glycogen to the skin cells. Bio-mimetic simply means it is a human-made process which imitates nature. What it'll mean for you is your skin will not be sapped of its glycogen even on the coldest, hardest rides. And if you need further proof of the effectiveness, just look to the fact that Garmin and other professional cycling teams see the DZ Nuts InHeat Embrocation Cream as an essential tool for their training and racing. It is available in three various strengths -- low, medium and high heat.

Mad Alchemy Mellow Heat Warming Embrocation Mad Alchemy Mellow Heat Warming Embrocation
The Mellow Heat Warming Embrocation from Mad Alchemy has a groovy, kicking back sort of warmth. It's perfect for loosening tight muscles with steady, long-lasting warmth. Use it for your legs, your back, and even your neck if you desire. Think warm bath. This embrocation is the cornerstone of Mad Alchemy's lineup. It's for those days when you're contemplating knee warmers, but aren't quite sure. We'd rub it in when the temperature drops below 60 or so. It's for those days that you'd rather go without the knee sleeves. The Mellow affords you that ability. Rub it in; enjoy the sunshine even if it's cloudy. Show those knees. As with other Mad Alchemy embro's, this one is based on grapeseed and rapeseed oils, with some shea butter and unbleached beeswax mixed in for the smooth texture. The warmth comes from the inclusion of capsicum annuum, and a mix of essential oils gives it a gentle, tingly aroma.

Mad Alchemy Warm Weather Summer Embrocation Mad Alchemy Warm Weather Summer Embrocation
Living the lush lotion life. Part of why Mad Alchemy is so good is that the alchemists have a passion for embrocation. They don't only use it when it's cold and grey, but when it's warm and sunny. As such, they've minted a non-warming Warm Weather Summer Embrocation. Yes, it's an embrocation for days when you don't need a base layer. Part protection, part inspiration, part ritual, it has the body and shine of their hot rubs, but with crisp, summery scents that are appropriate when you're pulling out the summer jerseys and donning sunscreen. They tell us "there's an embrocation for every day and every climate," and the non-warming cream covers the days when you're thinking more about sweating than staying warm. The main ingredients are the same as they use for the rest of the line: grapeseed and rapeseed oils, beeswax, and shea butter. Added to that are spearmint and eucalyptus essential oils. The former is slightly cooling to the nostrils, and the latter helps keeps bugs at bay. The Mad Alchemy Warm Weather Summer Embrocation comes in a 4 oz (120ml) tub.
