Moist skin is softer and more susceptible to abrasion, as any rider who has done a long race in the rain can attest. Castelli's dry lube reduces friction without weakening the skin through moisturizers. It uses 100% natural tea tree oil for antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to help prevent infections and saddle sores.
Castelli has been developing their skin care products for almost two years, fine-tuning the ingredients and testing the various versions on a panel of riders. A partnership with several skin care experts has allowed them to develop unique products while ensuring that the product formulas are both effective and safe. Castelli tested multiple different versions of the creams to get just the right performance. A group of cyclists blind tested these creams along with leading competitors’ products, and the final versions of Castelli's Linea Pelle products were the top-ranked products in these tests for almost all the testers.
Castelli makes an effort to avoid any ingredients that can irritate the skin or damage technical cycling fabrics. Many of the ingredients are natural, avoiding any synthetic ingredients that are associated with potential health issues. The packaging is important as well. The tubes make it easy to get an exact amount of cream and are more hygienic than jars. The 100 ml size means you can fly with the tubes in your carry-on luggage.
