Frequently asked questions
Has DermaSwim Pro been tested, and is it safe?
DermaSwim Pro was specially formulated by using common ingredients found in skin care lotions. We have tested DermaSwim Pro for countless hours in the pool over the past several years before bringing it to the public. Different level swimmers, from little kids to serious competitors, have used DermaSwim Pro extensively. We have never had a report of any kind of adverse reaction to DermaSwim Pro. However, as with all lotions, it is recommended that you test a small area first to make sure that it is compatible with your skin type.
Does DermaSwim Pro have to be washed off after swimming?
No! You may leave it on. It will soak in, leaving skin soft and moisturized. After a swim, simply rinse off in the shower - soap isn't necessary unless you prefer. In fact, the whole experience for swimmers using DermaSwim Pro has changed. Instead of the old days trying desperately to scrub off the chlorine after swimming, now only a quick shower is recommended to rinse off the residual pool water. Imagine, no scrubbing routine, and no post swim itch or dryness. Just moisturized skin!
Is chlorine really so bad?
Chlorine is necessary to keep pools clean. Unfortunately, many people are seriously affected by chlorine, having side effects such as itching, drying and pool rash. They should find immediate relief by using DermaSwim Pro, and enjoy their swims a great deal more than they used to. Others aren't as sensitive to chlorine and may feel they don't need a pre-swimming lotion. We believe that even if you don't notice that excessive drying and itching, the repeated contact with chlorine is not good for your skin long term anyway. It makes sense to protect your skin before a problem occurs, as well as when one already has.
Does DermaSwim Pro make you swim faster?
Good question. Some feel they swim a little faster with it, some don't notice a speed difference. One common report is that your skin feels much better in the water with DermaSwim Pro than without, which may make you feel faster.
How does one meet the "shower before entering pool" rule while wearing DermaSwim Pro?
We suggest a simple routine. Change into your suit, apply DermaSwim Pro to your skin, then enter the shower and rinse off without using soap. The DermaSwim is waterproof and won't come off with a light rinse. You've met the requirement, and you're ready for a swim with your protective lotion on. See "Instructions" for full usage details.
Will putting on a lotion before swimming "gunk up" the pool?
DermaSwim Pro is waterproof, and does not rinse off in the pool. In fact, we believe that using DermaSwim Pro keeps pools cleaner. Dry skin is sealed in, rather than flaking off in the water. Pool Facilities should appreciate this characteristic.
Can you put DermaSwim Pro all over your body?
Everywhere except for the bottoms of your feet, your hair, and it shouldn't get into your eyes, including the area around your eyes where your goggles cover. Many of our swimmers actually apply it over almost their entire bodies, as any missed spot becomes the itchy spot! DermaSwim Pro is for external use only. See "Instructions" for full usage details.
Do we provide samples of DermaSwim products?
We no longer send small samples of DermaSwim lotions. The reason for this is that we have found it is better to use the lotion a few times to truly realize the difference of swimming with DermaSwim versus without. Our theory about why this is the case is that if you protect skin that has recently been damaged by chlorine one time, you will notice some benefit, but if you use it several times, the chlorine side effects will truly start to go away. Therefore, using a sample one or two times simply isn't going to show you how effective this lotion really is. We rarely, rarely get a response that DermaSwim lotions haven't worked for someone. If you give DermaSwim a try and aren't completely satisfied with it, we do have a 100% money back guarantee. See our return policy for more details.
