Climbskin Hand Cream Gear News

© Dark Ventures

Climbskin® is a young Spanish company created by a group of climbers who decided to pool their knowledge to create Climbskin® Hand Cream. We have a Ph.D in Chemistry, a Biologist with over ten years of experience in the manufacture of cosmetics and a nature-based health Physician who have created this unique product.

FOR ALL SKIN TYPES: Climbskin® Hand Cream is designed by climbers for climbers, but also for people who need extra care of their hands. Climbskin® Hand Cream is a fast-absorbing cream.

MAXIMUM QUALITY NATURAL INGREDIENTS: Its balanced combination of high quality extracts and oils in an exceptionally thin matrix give it a dense texture, not oily even at high temperatures. It does not contain artificial colours or flavours, only ingredients of the best quality, whose combination yields a pleasant aroma, natural and characteristic. Not tested on animals.

REGENERATES, HEALS, HYDRATATES AND CALMS: Climbskin® Hand Cream contains the most potent skin regenerative agents found in nature, in a new and precise formula with eight major components: Dragon’s Blood, Tincture of Benzoin, Centella Asiatica, Shea Butter, Achillea Millefolium, Buckthorn Oil, Aloe Vera and Rosehip Oil. Climbskin® Hand Cream achieves exceptional deep hydration and has a great calming effect on the skin after climbing. The skin absorprtion and penetration of Climbskin® Hand Cream is much higher than wax-based products, so there is less residue on the skin.

BEFORE CLIMBING: Apply Climbskin Hand Cream 1 to 2 hours before climbing. Unlike other products, this is possible thanks to its quick absorption. A proper hydration gives the skin more elasticity, reducing the chances of any further damage, such as cracks or opening calluses. Tincture of benzoin and natural silica also help to regulate sweating, which is an important factor in skin wear.

“Having good skin is essential for climbing “a muerte”. I’ve been using Climbskin daily for the last years because it is definitely the best product for the skin care of climbers, something that fanatics like had always looked for”

Sharma and Andrada look like they've just rolled out a pub. Anyone got real world experience of using this stuff pre-climbing? Did you feel a difference?
13 Apr, 2016
I actually have, I was using this stuff sport climbing on the Costa Blanca a couple of years ago. It only remains greasy for a short while, after which the skin feels better than before.

Cool, thanks

it is absolutely brilliant stuff. Helps stop hands sweating and can be applied before climbing (unlike greasy equivalents like ClimbOn).

I think how well any of these products work is very 'personal'. I've tried all sorts of different stuff, but for me the best is Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E. (NB In tubes, not the tub which is very greasy!). Available in all Boots stores, cheap, (£1.29) non greasy, and (for me) very effective. Of course, neither Dani A or Chris S have heard of it........
