Ingredients and Usage
āSport™ has a thick consistency like honey, apply a pea size amount of the ointment to chafing and irritation prone areas 1) prior to sport activity and/or 2) after participation to soothe rawness and irritation. This product is not a lotion for large areas; it is a medicinal spot treatment for vulnerable areas. āSport is suitable for adult and adolescent athletes. Not for use with condoms.
The bio-active medicinal ingredients in āSport Pro™ are botanical. These plant derived nutrients are bio-compatible; meaning no toxic or injurious effect on biological function. Additionally, these nutrients will not diminish the skin’s protective pH, acid mantle or the skin’s other natural immune mechanisms. Each ingredient in Kátha Soma skin formulas are recognized as safe substances (GRAS) by the United States Food and Drug Administration and the European Union Pharmacopeia’s.
Note for Women . . . Keira Feminine is a skin therapeutic to calm labia irritation, clitoris discomfort, and nipple shear that is common among female cyclists, runners etc. CLICK HERE for information about how Keira Feminine uniquely supports the lady bits, vulva and clitoris skin.
Cyclists: Saddle Sore, Crotch Chafing, Road Rash
The body makes contact with the saddle at three points: points one and two are sitz/sit bones (ischial tuberosities). The third point is the soft tissue between the legs: the perineum (the body part between the sexual organs and the anus). In general sitz/sit bones are designed to withstand body weight and pressure, the soft tissue of the genitalia is not. As such, during long rides the nerves and blood vessels to the penis/scrotum for men and labia/clitoris for women become compressed resulting in pain, numbness, soreness and swelling. The skin on the inner thighs and perineum can become chafed, raw and irritated due to cycling friction.
Cyclists are also prone to saddle sore . . . a painful welt on the buttock where the stiz/sit bones rest on the saddle. This type of sore results from a combination of pressure, friction, shear and reduced anti-microbial peptide function (the skin’s immune cells). During long rides, continuous pressure/compression reduces blood flow, depriving the skin of oxygen & nutrients which damages the skin. Cycling friction wears down the skins top layer (epidermis) which then diminishes the skin protective pH/acid mantle and antimicrobial capacity. Shear pulls, stretches the blood vessels in the dermis/middle skin layer contributing to swelling, tenderness and discomfort. THE DAMAGED SKIN FROM CYCLING ALLOWS BACTERIA TO ESTABLISH UNDER THE SKIN RESULTING IN INFLAMMATION AND A PUS BUILDUP (PAINFUL BUTTOCK WELT).
The best treatment for saddle sore is prevention: more specifically reduce pressure, friction, shear & preserve the skin’s immune function. When applied to the lower buttocks (ischial tuberosities) hot spots, āSport™ strengthens each skin layer and supports the skin’s natural immune mechanisms: anti-microbial peptides and protective pH. Additionally, the phyto-nutrients in āSport™ help reduce the discomfort of a saddle sore and enhances the healing process.
