Your Kit's Not Complete Without Skin-Lube®!

March 13, 2018

Since its founding 100 years ago, Cramer has remained steadfast in its commitment to provide high quality, effective athletic training products. That legacy is something we take quite seriously…starting at the most basic level.

Take Skin-Lube, for example--Cramer’s tried-and-true lubricating ointment. Since creating the product more than 60 years ago, we’ve stayed loyal to the original formula for one very good reason: it works. Skin-Lube both treats and prevents, and is a versatile, basic essential that’s a must for every kit.

Skin-Lube’s reputation was built on its remarkable ability to lubricate the skin, reduce chafing, and prevent blisters, chafing and burns. Use it on the feet, hands, thighs, shoulders, chest and other areas of the body that experience high friction. This protective ointment is heavier, thicker, and has a higher melting point than petroleum jelly. Skin-Lube stays on the skin during heavy use and stands up to heat and sweat like nothing else, making it long lasting and effective.

Skin-Lube is known for its ability to prevent blisters, but you’ll also want to make it your go-to product when a blister is already there. The ointment forms a thick, protective shield that stays put under socks. Your athletes will be back in the game, without the irritating pain. They’ll forget they have a blister!

There are even more uses for Skin-Lube. Depend on this basic kit essential…

  • To prevent/reduce wind burn
  • As a long-wearing lip balm
  • To protect the skin from the rain
  • For a perfect accompaniment to Cramer’s Heel and Lace Pads
  • To keep the skin moist during cold, dry weather—especially hands and feet that are prone to cracking
  • As protection against humidity-induced rubbing
  • For an effective massage ointment

Skin-Lube has legions of fans. It’s the ideal product for football, soccer, hockey and basketball players, as well as runners and cyclists. It’s perfect for endurance events such as marathons, triathlons and ultra running. Swimmers love Skin-Lube because it stays on in the water, and it’s also a favorite among hikers.

"Cramer is a company that I truly trust,” says Kelly Quinlin, ATC, LAT, CSCS. The products they make have withstood the test of time, and even the new ones they're coming up with are terrific. There's just a gamut of products that Cramer provides that I need as an athletic trainer. If I don't have my kit with those supplies in it, I can't perform as an athletic trainer so those are very vital."

Cramer’s Skin-Lube contains petrolatum, zinc stearate, silicone, propylene glycol, diazolidinyl urea, methyl paraben, and propyl paraben. It’s available in a 2.75-ounce tube; one-pound or five-pound jar; or 25-pound bucket. The ointment goes on easily and stays on. Your kit’s not complete without Skin-Lube!
