About this project

In a world of skincare products full of synthetic chemicals produced by huge multinational corporations we wanted to create an alternative. Not only by using natural and organic ingredients, but also by creating products that have been designed and tested to perform in the most challenging conditions whether on your bike, board or just your feet. We love the outdoors and having spent over two years testing and tweaking our products in all conditions, from up in the mountains to down in the sea, we know Ride Skincare will perform when you need it most!

 

Ride Protect is our SPF 30 Sunscreen. Instead of using synthetic chemical filters typically found in the majority of sunscreens, we have used the mineral Titanium Dioxide for our protection. Unlike chemical filters which are absorbed into the skin and break down the UVA and UVB rays, mineral filters sit on top the skin and reflect the sun's harmful rays. This means you are protected as soon as you apply and the barrier formed will also protect against wind burn.

Everything about Ride Protect has been designed for the rider, from being very water resistant down to the compact tube that slips into a saddle bag or pack. Whether you are out on the waves or out on the bike, Ride has got you protected.

For the ultimate post ride skin recovery we have created Ride Recover. Unlike most moisturisers we have used naturally based preservatives and designed the product to work with sensitive skin that has been exposed to the wind, rain and sun. Using Aloe Vera and Green Tea to re-hydrate and moisturise, it's exactly what your skin needs after being exposed to the elements following a long ride.

 

Like all outdoor sports lovers we are aware of the impact that modern day products are having on the places we love the most. At Ride Skincare we are trying to make our impact as small as possible by using minimal packaging and manufacturing our products in the UK to cut down on travel miles. We dont use synthetic sun filters which can bleach coral and will never test any products on animals.

Using the best ingredients available was hugely important to us when creating Ride Skincare products. They may not be the easiest to work with or the cheapest to buy, but we believe they are the best. The benefits of some of these ingredients are well known, for example the Organic Jojoba and Coconut Oil used in Ride Protect. Others are not so well known. Non-nano Titanium Dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral and is used for our sun protection instead of synthetic chemical filters such as Oxybenzone and Octyl Methoxycinnamate. Preservatives are essential to keep products safe, but those typically used such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol can be controversial in skincare. Instead we use Sodium Benzoate and Benzoic Acid as our preservatives, which occur naturally in many fruits. We use Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Peppermint Oil and Green Tea in Ride products because they all have excellent properties that allow them to help protect and repair the skin.

We are now at a stage where our products have been fully developed, real world tested and approved safe. The last part of the SPF testing is happening as we speak. We now need your help to get our products off the ground and to get the first production run going. We want to break new ground in the Sports Skincare Market with natural products that perform, and with your help we can do it!

Risks and challenges

All formal testing which allows the product to be sold has been completed. The result of our sun protection testing to confirm the SPF rating is due in October.
We have established relationships with manufactures and suppliers and are ready to go. A risk to the timeline that is out of our control is the availability of ingredients, but at the moment supply is good.
We will keep everyone updated on progress and are confident in meeting and potentially exceeding our expected delivery dates.
