Tucked into the corners of Interbike were a number of brands offering new skincare lines. Here are the best of what we saw, focusing on products that kept the ingredients lists mostly (or all) natural, often organic, and seemingly useful.
The most interesting of the bunch was TufMed, a brand launched in 2011 by a member of the US Martial Arts Team to help heal the cuts, scrapes and bruises common in that arena. Fortunately (or not, depending on how you look at it), we cyclists also get banged up from time to time, and their all-natural, odorless and greaseless formulas claim to work just as well for us as for the fighters.
The products cover the gamut, from bruise and black eye relief, to lotions for healing cuts and scrapes quickly. They work by giving the body the nutrients it needs to heal itself, like aloe, arnica, amino acids, etc. I’ve been testing out the TufHands to get the blisters and cracked skin from my ninja warrior training (it’s true), and it works fantastically well. Hands healed up much faster than before I used it, and I’m looking forward to trying the rest of the line for more cycling specific uses. The soap is pretty stellar, too. Perhaps the best part of their business is that they wanted everything to be affordable. Even with top notch ingredients, all of the products are under $10.
