The chemicals in pool water are designed to kill, and as my pool time increases, my hair and skin are also in a battle for their life. Aside from chemical damage, I don’t like to smell like last night’s swim workout with the first glistening of sweat in the morning’s run. TRISWIM’s family of products not only kill the smell and get rid of the chemicals, they are like a recovery drink for the outside of your body.
Lots of swimmer-focused body care products neutralize chlorine odor, but TRISWIM goes further and uses “sequestering agents which assist in attacking the chlorine, grabbing a hold of it, and washing the chemical down the drain.” Best of all, the products follow up by healing your body with organic aloe vera as well as vitamins A, E and provitamin B5.
My work lands me all over the country in a wide range of pools. Aside from a little muscle fatigue, I need to leave the pool behind as I go about my day. From Ocean City, to DC, to Long Beach and Irvine, TRISWIM has performed more consistently than I have in some of those venues. As someone who also spends a lot of time in the ocean, I have found that the products help get rid of that post-saltwater dryness and damage.
In addition to taking care of your body’s surface, TRISWIM is committed to helping athletes and giving back to the sport. Check out their website for a wealth of information including swim workouts, drills and videos. The company also supports the Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Team Duke – John Wayne Cancer Foundation. Go to www.tri-swim.com to find out more.
TRISWIM products are available in 8.8 oz tubes as well as 2 oz bottles for those of you needing to pass through TSA security on the way to the pool. You can find the products online and at local sports specialty shops.
