With climbs accompanied by searing sun burning down on your back, and descents met by horizontal, stinging rain, your skin takes the punishment. Sometimes, try as you might, friction occurs in the places you want it least and your tired legs just need that little bit extra.
The unique formula contained in VeloSkin’s soothing gel is great for self massaging your legs after a long ride or to soothe and cool soreness and skin damage caused by saddle friction. Natural oils used within the product formulation combine to offer anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to speed up the healing process and provide blessed relief in the interim.
Specially formulated and tested after long century rides and fast action races - VeloSkin’s soothing gel contains no stinging alcohol, but a blend of oils, vitamins, minerals and oils that work together to get you back in the saddle quicker than ever.
Used daily in combination with our chamois cream, VeloSkin’s skin recovery gel - fortified with vitamins C and E - gives your skin the TLC it sometimes requires.
We pack each tin of soothing gel with goodness, including:
Menthol - increases blood flow to the skin to speed up healing
Aloe Vera - Used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory
Coconut oil - The fatty acids from coconut oil work to condition the skin
Jojoba oil - Boosts collagen to help hold the skin together
Raspberry seed oil - Delivers antioxidants to protect and repair
Argan oil - Quickly absorbed, this oil is bursting with Vitamin E to act as a great moisturiser
Cucumber oil - An essential oil included for its ability to cool and soothe

Please note this product contains menthol and female riders should be careful with application of this product.
Quite simply, VeloSkin’s chamois cream is our ‘hero’ product.
Why? We are confident that it is the best out there for protecting that part of your body that is so vital for sustained, enjoyable riding.
Chamois cream forms a protective buffer between you and the saddle. Friction is one of cyclist’s worst enemies, more so than the longest ride or the highest climb and can cause saddle sores and discomfort. At VeloSkin, we are firmly of the opinion that prevention is better than cure, which is why our chamois cream offers a vital line of defence.
VeloSkin’s patented formula is packed with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, as well natural ingredients to soothe, smooth and keep harmful bacteria at bay. We also use calming shea and cocoa butters to absorb quickly without leaving a sticky residue. And like all products in the VeloSkin range, our signature orange blossom and bergamot scent means you’ll smell as great as you feel.
Learn to love the saddle, not resent it, with VeloSkin’s innovative chamois cream.
Carefully selected active ingredients in every tin of VeloSkin chamois cream include:
Shea butter - Your skin’s best friend. Soothes itching and balances skin hydration levels
Cocoa butter - Bursting with healthy, fatty acids to add a protective layer of hydration
Soy wax – Superbly moisturises and revitalises the skin

You wouldn’t leave for a ride without first protecting your head (we hope). Probably your padded shorts to give your rear a gentle cushioning, too. But aren’t you neglecting something? What about your body’s largest organ - your skin?
Whatever the world throws at you, your skin has to take it all. Time to offer it gentle protection and support with Veloskin’s re-hydrating moisturiser. Daily use recharges tired skin and helps provide a natural layer of protection against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Our unique non-greasy formula goes on easily, and leaves no sticky residue or film on the skin. And like all products from the VeloSkin range, the fresh and uplifting scent smells good enough to wear daily.
Even better, like all VeloSkin products, we’ve done our testing on cyclists, not animals. Well, when was the last time you saw a rabbit riding a bike?

As a cyclist, you know that shaving your legs is a rite of passage; a necessary commitment to doing things right and to showing off those chiselled guns. And if you are doing things right, do it with a product designed with your goals in mind.

By utilising natural ingredients to moisturise your skin, you’ll find VeloSkin’s shave cream is mild enough to use daily on your face, as well as your legs. So if your daily ride is more Leyton to Bank on the Central Line than the Tour De France in the saddle, we have got you covered either way.
