Island Basics anti-chafe solution

Introducing Island Basics’ BODY+SOLE Anti-Chafe Friction Control Cream that prevents the feet and/or the body from any chafing by creating a protective layer that serves as a barrier against friction and moisture.

Published

on

One of the things I remember when me and my siblings went to Boracay Island a few years back was – after the seeming incessant walking to and fro Stations 1, 2 and 3 – the vocal complaining for the chafing caused by the friction between legs. It was, in a word, uncomfortable; worse, it was delimiting, since the subsequent pain caused by the chafe ended up becoming unbearable, so that staying still was preferred than doing more walking, thus discovering of the beauty of the supposed tropical paradise of Malay, Aklan. And it is to deal with the likes (that is, discomfort due to the occurrence of chafes) that the likes of Island Basics’ anti-chafe cream were developed.

Anti-chafe cream

How Island Basics’ BODY+SOLE Anti-Chafe Friction Control Cream works is simple enough. It prevents the feet and/or the body from any chafing by creating a protective layer that serves as a barrier against friction and moisture (the two being what cause the chafing, of course).

With this, the product becomes a must-use (or at least worthy of consideration) during strenuous activities – from running to biking to hiking to mountain climbing, or even when working out/lifting weights, and yes, while taking (supposedly) leisurely walks along the beach.

And the application is simple, too – just apply liberally to relieve hot spots under the arms, buttocks, thighs and soles of the feet.

Island Basics as a company, by the way, adheres to going “back to the basics”, as it recognizes that whatever you put on your skin is absorbed by the body, so that slathering the body with chemical-ridden creams/lotions/whatever could prove to be harmful and not benefit the skin at all. So this cream makes use of, among others, virgin coconut oil, beeswax, tea tree oil, peppermint oil, Shea butter, and natural vitamin E – all natural, of course.

Island Basics products – including this anti-chafe cream – are all locally made in the Philippines, with most of the ingredients sourced locally, too.

So the next time there are plans to take long walks (even if it’s leisurely, supposedly to enjoy the beauty of the sugar fine white sands of Boracay Island), this may help make the experience be remembered not because of the discomfort, but with fondness.

The product is available at ECHOstore Sustainable Lifestyle.

A registered nurse, “Ching” – as many fondly call Rachelle Grace – believes that a holistic approach to health and wellness is what everyone should aim for. She is, therefore, always on the lookout for what could help achieve this. And yes, she shares them openly, believing “knowledge about what works won’t be much use if it’s not known by as many as possible”.
