Defense Soap Bar and Shower Gel are most effective when used immediately following training. When showering with our products we recommend you start at the head and work your way down. Our hair holds contaminates that can infect us at a later time. Defense products are safe to use in the hair that is shaved or closely cut. When cleaning the body use a mesh sponge or wash cloth to work soap into a full lather (leave on skin for 30-45 seconds) then rinse.
Defense Body Wipes were developed for when you can’t get to the shower. Research has shown that you have about four hours after being contaminated to clean your skin in order to prevent infection. Considering most wrestling tournaments last longer then four hours we saw the need for our wipes. For best results wipe excess sweat from skin then wipe entire body, face, neck, arms and legs with Defense Body Wipes. Our wipes are also great for wiping down headgear and fighter’s gloves.
At Defense we offer our active ingredients at 100% strength in the event we do become infected. Defense Essentail Oil can be applied directly to an infected area. Defense Essential Oil should be applied three times a day. We highly recommend applying Defense Essential Oil and then thirty minutes later apply Defense Healing Salve. The healing salve is 5% our active ingredients with Vitamin A and E added to help heal the skin. The healing salve also works well on cleaning and protecting scratches, scrapes and mat burns.
