Our purpose is to improve skin health and reduce skin damage.
Athletes face many skin health issues and are at high risk of skin cancer from the increased sun exposure and because many stop using available products due to usability issues. This is serious because there were 2,285 deaths in the UK in 2016 from melanoma skin cancer, 86% were caused by UV exposure and were preventable.
Issue: Sunscreen runs into their eyes when they sweat and causes the body to warm up by blocking the skin’s pores.
Solution: Enhance & Protect contains SPF30 and UVAPF30 sunscreen that doesn’t run into the eyes when you sweat and does not block the pores so doesn't increase your body temp.
Issue: Sweat increases skin sensitivity and the risk of sunburn and other sun-related skin damage.
Solution: They reduce the skin’s sensitivity, which reduces skin damage.
Issue: Athletes suffer from lots of break outs and spots due to sunscreen, perspiration, outside dirt, pollution and hormones.
Solution: Athletes can now enjoy healthy, clear, soft and glowing skin when they use both products.
Lucy Charles-Barclay, Red Bull Athlete and multiple Ironman champion, says 'I have been using CJ Skinhealth for 6 months now and the products have been a game changer for me. As someone who has struggled with dry skin and breakouts since my early teens I never thought I'd find just 2 products that could solve the problem. I use CJ Skinhealth every day pre and post training sessions and I have noticed a huge difference, I even get complimented on my skin now which I never thought would happen!‘
Issue: Their skin doesn’t fit into the boxes that the skin industry likes, forcing athletes to choose separate products for dry, oily and/or sensitive skin or they they end up not bothering at all.
Solution: Our products are for all skin types including oily, dry, sensitive, combination and from fair to dark. For women and men.
Solution: We created two skin health products because athletes told us they only wanted two. They prevent blocked pores, breakouts, pigmentation, sun damage, red skin, rosacea and premature aging. They help the skin to heal including road rashes and scars.
Issue: There are no skin care products created for and tested during development by athletes that meet all their needs.
Solution: The elite level cycling team, Bianchi Dama, usability tested the products in harsh winter and summer conditions during development.
"We've been working with the CJ Skinhealth team for just over a year now, perfecting and weather-testing their Active Cleanse and Enhance & Protect products. It's been an exciting process, from getting the fragrance right, to making sure the product isn't too heavy on your face when you're exercising. I work in the world of product development and know that it's never going to be an easy brief meeting the high expectations of 10 women with busy lives, but CJ Skinhealth have done just that and we're very proud of the products we've helped create." Sarah King, Bianchi Dama Captain
“Not only is this an interactive and valuable partnership, it is unique in women's sports sponsorship as no product development has ever been established with such an active team racing at a national level. The platform that this provides enables CJ Skinhealth to develop and market a product that has genuinely been through a tough testing process with these active sportswomen. The relationship with the team is very strong, open and both parties share ideas freely, both recognising that the development stage is the just the first of many important steps along the path to make CJ Skinhealth a real success story” David Walters, Bianchi Dama Team Manager
Issue: Most sunscreens only contain SPF, which is for the UVB burning rays. The UVA rays are the aging rays that cause skin damage and cancer. The difference between SPF30 and SPF50 is not as great as people think and therefore leads to bad behaviours of not reapplying soon enough, resulting in skin damage.
Solution: Enhance and Protect is SPF30 and UVAPF 30, which is ideal for athletes. We have the certificates from the in-vitro and in-vivo (human volunteers) testing that meet EU standards.
Issue: They don’t always have access to water to clean their skin, especially after a race and before going on the podium.
Solution: Active Cleanse can be used without water and just needs to be wiped off to take away the impurities that it lifts from the skin’s pores. Leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and revitalised.
Issue: Athletes are critical and skeptical (which is a good thing)
Solution: All the ingredients have been scientifically proven to work. The products have passed all the EU regulatory tests and we have the Consumer Safety Product Reports. The biggest challenge for the innovation team was to get all the active ingredients to be stable in each product, no other skin care products have the number of active ingredients that we have. They have not been tested on animals and do not contain any animal derivatives or parabens.
Issue: Athletes want to deal with companies that have values that they live by.
Solution: Our values are Trust, Respect and Integrity. Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. These are core to everything we do, especially in the product development and production.
