We’ve spent the last year researching, developing, and formulating the Sender’s Salve to fill the biggest need in the lifecycle of a climber’s hands: recovery. It is specially formulated to create a protective layer over the worn, damaged areas of your skin, while essential oils, vitamins, and olive oil triglycerides nourish and encourage your skin to naturally repair itself quicker by giving it everything it needs to do the job – helping your hands recover faster so you can get back to climbing sooner! As the first in Escape Climbing’s series of essential products for climber’s skincare, this post-climb hand treatment is made to promote good skin health when used as a regular part of your climbing routine. Chalk use, repetitive strain, and the abrasive nature of climbing surfaces all do a number on your skin. And dry, unhealthy skin loses its elasticity and is more likely to tear under the hard use climbers put it through – quite literally, wear and tear. And NOBODY likes flappers.
Sender’s Salve is formulated to create the ideal environment for your post-climb skin to repair dry, worn, and damaged skin from a climber’s hard use. The beeswax creates an occlusive, protective layer over the damaged skin. While the skin is protected, the organic essential oils in the Sender’s Salve get to work. Lavender flower oil in the salve promotes healing of skin tissue while the beta-caryophyllene in the oil also acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. The organic peppermint oil not only smells good, but also has mild pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties for muscle pain. And the triglycerides in the organic olive oil hydrates and nourishes the skin to further promote and support your skin’s natural repair process. Using Sender’s Salve regularly as a part of your post-climb routine will help your skin stay strong and healthy, allowing you to push yourself as hard as you need.
