BLDG Active launches surfer-specific wound repair



Industry Updates

Product aims to curb the sting of wetsuit or board rash, reef and rock cuts, fin lacerations and more

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 December, 2017 - BLDG Active has introduced a new-to-the-market skin/wound repair product designed for anyone who gets hurt in the water.

Time in the water increases risk to bacterial infections, especially when skin irritation or abrasions exist. It's critical to get wounds, even minor rashes cleaned and treated as quickly as possible when coming out of the water to avoid surf ulcerations, surfers dermatitis and Staph.

Pro-surfers, like Damien Hobgood, have found respite in using Active Skin Repair, "Everything I need to clean and begin the recovery process in this one little bottle," he said. "I use it every time I come out of the water to deal with any nics or irritations. Active Skin Repair makes it easy to give my skin, especially my feet, the attention they need to avoid infection," Hobgood said.

Ideal for surf and SUP, Active Skin Repair, is the first multi-functional, non-toxic, skin and wound repair solution. Currently in use by the World Surf League to treat athletes, Active Skin

Kills 99.9% of all bacteria while speeding the healing process
Works on wetsuit or board rash, reef and rock cuts, fin lacerations, insect bites, sunburns and other skin irritations
