- One Step - Shampoo/Conditioner in one that removes chlorine/metals from swimmers hair
The One Step shampoo and conditioner in one did a nice job of cleaning hair, getting rid of the chlorine smell, and left hair manageable and easy to comb, brush, dry, and style. It comes in an 8oz bottle.
From a tester: One Step did not create much bubbles, but it cleans hair well. It is easy to rinse out. Although it says it is a conditioner, too, you might want to use a separate conditioner if you have very long hair. My hair is short, but I felt it did work OK.
- Sand & Surf - Swim wear cleaning solution designed to remove irritants, salt, and harmful oils from swimsuits.
Sand & Surf is aimed at swim wear worn at a beach. Lakes and oceans so not have the same chemicals as thsoe found in a swimming pool, so this product has s different formula to address the needs of the the fresh or salt water swimmer (it does work for pool swimmers, too, neutralizing chlorine). It comes in an 8oz bottle.
From a tester: I mixed it as directed, washed and then rinsed my swim suit, and my suit was clean and smelled fresh. I have tried it after both an ocean swim and a pool swim, and the Sand & Surf worked well both times.
- Soap+ - Natural Bar Soap that removes chlorine from swimmers' skin
Soap+ is 100% natural soap with a vegetable and soy milk base. Besides cleaning a swimmer's skin, it neutralizes the chlorine left on a swimer's skin after a pool swim, so the swimemr can leave that chlorine smell at the pool! The bar is about 3" x 2" x 1" and lasted several weeks - your mileage may vary.
From a tester: The soap felt pretty much like regular soap. It cleaned me up after a swim, got rid of the chlorine smell, and did not leave any sticky feeling film on my body. I also used ti after some other, non-swim workouts, and it worked as well as any other soap. I liked that it did not have a strong odor and left me feeling clean, not perfumed.
- Moisture Therapy - Body lotion with a super thin feeling, works to moisturize the the skin. Does not remove chlorine
This skin moisturizer has a light feel to it, and a light scent of coconuts and limes. It contains aloe vera. It comes in an 8oz tube.
From a tester: Moisture Therapy was not sticky or oily. It gave the "right" amount of moisture for my skin after a swim. A little amount can be spread over a lot of skin - a little goes a long way. It does not have strong smell. I think both men and women would enjoy it and benefit from using it.
- Suit Solutions - Gentle swim wear rinse that removes chlorine from swim wear
Suit Solutions is a swim wear protector. It neutralizes chlorine to stop damage to the swim suit. It comes in an 8oz bottle.
From a tester: After mixing the Suit Solutions and water in a sink according to the directions, swishing my suit in it, and letting in drip dry, there was still a smell of chlorine on my swimsuit. I tried it a second time and it worked well. I may not have swished my swim suit in the water and Suit Solutions mix long enough the first time, but I thought I did. It was easy to use, as you do not have to rinse it out, just mix the solution with water in a sink, wash your swim wear with the liquid, let your swimsuit dry normally. I have no idea if it extends the life of the swim suit as I have not used it long enough yet!
- Swimmer's Own - Shower gel for swimmers that removes chlorine from swimmers skin
Swimmer's Own gel contains vitamin E and aloe vera. It is designed to both clean and remove chlorine from a swimmer's skin. It comes in an 8oz bottle.
From a tester: The very first impression of the product was "refreshing. It smells and fells somehow refreshing. A small amount of it gives you a lot of bubbles. Swimmers Own was not sticky or clingy, thus it was easy to rinse off after washing. It is perfect for after a morning practice to get ready for work quickly. No chlorine smell left on me after a shower.
