The hemp-based product designed to stop summer chafing

Dreading unwanted friction this summer? This new hemp product promises to take care of uncomfortable chafing.

As lockdown restrictions ease and the temperature slowly heats up, you probably can’t wait to throw on your summer wardrobe and enjoy long walks in the great outdoors.

Or maybe you’re dying to get out on your bike and feel the breeze in your hair?

But the warmer weather – if it ever comes – can mean the inevitable discomfort caused by thigh-rubbing. 

Just in time, CBD brand Honest Hemp has launched two new plant-based products, designed to reduce friction and help soothe sore skin.

The brand’s Hemp Anti-Chafe Chamois Cream is ideal for keen cyclists who want to take on long distances, but also works wonders as an everyday chafe cream.

Loaded with hemp oil and menthol to soothe and cool the skin, the Chamois Cream is described as the “perfect anti-chafing remedy”, containing a perfect balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9, which matches the requirements of the body to protect the skin.

The Chamois cream is said to be used by professionals in the cycling and equestrian industries to soothe, cool, reduce irritation, and keep you feeling fresh and comfortable, but can also be used as a relief cream for dry and itchy skin.

It comes following the success of the brand’s Hemp Active Gel, which claims to improve blood circulation to decrease the sensation of ‘heavy legs’, whilst also eliminating joint discomfort and maintaining mobility and flexibility. 

Increasing numbers of athletes and those with active lifestyles are turning to CBD products, to relieve pain, aid recovery and enhance focus.

Professional athletes including Megan Rapinoe, Nate Diaz, and Dominic Day and George Kruis, who founded Fourfive CBD, have all spoken of the benefits of the cannabinoid.

Honest Hemp carried out extensive research for its Active Gel, to determine which active ingredients should be used in its and how they all work together. Other factors were also considered during the testing and research process, including the smell and colour of the gel. 

Its new Deep Relief Warming Gel is perfect for runners and cyclists to help warm leg muscles before a run or ride on a cooler day.

The warming gel claims to soothe pain and help aching muscles recover after a strenuous workout, offering a range of potential benefits for those who engage in various sports.

Christian Sanderson, managing director of Honest Hemp, said: “We had such great feedback from our first Hemp Active gel, and felt there was more space in the sports market for hemp oil based products. 

“We’re very proud of our Hemp Active range and are looking forward to more people discovering the healing power of this plant.”
