Bodyglide's products focus on reliable, all natural formulas free of oils, grease, water, alcohol or animal products such as lanolin, creating products that are more effective and will not make a mess. A growing number of sportsmen and women prefer formulas that don't use animal products or animal testing. Inspiration for the formulas came from surfers on the California coast. Body and wetsuit chafing required something other than age-old petroleum jelly, which was not an option. Petroleum ruins neoprene and it’s greasy. A better alternative had to be effective and comfortable on the skin. The solution came to be known as Bodyglide's Skin Formula.
