Whether you’re an active person or not, there are many people who struggle with skin irritation due to moisture and skin rubbing against clothing or other parts of your body. A lot of people search for a solution to this problem, especially when they know they’re going to be walking around for a long period of time, like at an amusement park for example. If you’ve got thick thighs and you’re wearing shorts, chances are you’re going to end up with chafing by the end of the day.

What if there were a product available that was safe for your skin and helped keep moisture off your skin to minimize irritation? Body Glide is a protective, dry and invisible barrier between your skin and moisture that has been tested and is trusted. It is made one hundred percent with natural ingredients and it will remain where you apply it, working hard to repel moisture while allowing your skin to breathe and your sweat to escape.

This protective layer can be applied to any part of your body that needs it. However, it does not prevent you from sweating. That wouldn’t be beneficial to your health. You sweat for a reason. Without sweating, it will be impossible for your body to regulate its temperature. So, Body Glide will just help get the sweat off of your body so that you can avoid discomfort and irritation.

Body Glide got its start in the 1990s. The invention and revolution of protective solutions for friction and rubbing that leads to rashes, blisters, irritation, raw skin, and chafing. All of which can be very uncomfortable and/or painful. Body Glide makes its products with you in mind. And the fact that each and every person is different and has different interests and different levels of activity, etc. Whatever your lifestyle or your needs for Body Glide, their goal is to help you do what you want to do and feel confident and free while doing it.

The unique technology used to make this anti-chafing stick has been tested over and over and is trusted for premium comfort and protection. People from around the world have caught wind of this product and have, over the years, created a loyal customer base that love to use their products for a typical day, a work day, a stroll around the town, a run in the park, sports, and any and all other activities you can think of. These products will always work hard to keep you protected from irritation and discomfort.


The ingredients in any product you purchase and plan to use on your body or ingest into your body are extremely important. Especially if you are allergic to anything or sensitive to anything. It is also important to do research on the company that the product is made and sold by. Are they cruelty-free, vegan, free from harmal chemicals, et cetera.

Body Glide uses all natural ingredients that are derived from plants. These ingredients are tested thoroughly in laboratories, safe for most skin types, hypoallergenic, and also safe for children. There is no need to keep all natural products hidden away from curious hands.

Ingredients that Body Glide absolutely does not use in the making of any of their products, nor will they in the future, include petroleum-based products, lanolin, vegetable or mineral oils that would just sit on the skin, not stay put, and need to be adjusted and reapplied often.

The ingredients that are used in the makeup of Body Glide are Caprylic Triglyceride, Ozokerite, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Behenate, Tocopherol (AKA Vitamin E), and Allantoin.
Body Glide does not, and will not, use any products derived from animals, nor do they participate in any testing that involves harming or using animals.


When people think about anti-chafing products, they typically think of rigorous activities. However, people sweat and experience friction and discomfort in most any environment during any activity. Everybody is different and everybody’s body needs different things.

For those who experience rubbing, irritation, rashes, pain, or any other negative effect from being active whatsoever can benefit from the use of an anti-chafing product. Before you get dressed for the day or for the occasion at hand, apply the anti-chafe wherever needed, whether it be your neck, thighs, arms, or anywhere else that your skin may rub clothing or other skin and experience irritation.

It is perfectly safe to use Body Glide during your daily life in both dry and humid conditions. You can even stop mid-workout or mid-day and reapply the product to the affected area. Because, let’s face it, even the longest lasting products have a hard time standing up to certain things. What could it hurt to reinforce your protection even if it’s not due for a freshener?


There are many avenues people take in order to attempt finding a solution to their sweat and chafing problems. Some work better than others. Some don’t work at all. Some make the discomfort worse by making it too dry or are simply greasy and feel disgusting against your skin. Some will even clog your pores which will keep your sweat from being able to escape, leaving your ability to self-regulate your body temperature hindered.

One product that people have and do use for an anti-chafing solution is Vaseline. Now, this has benefits and drawbacks. Vaseline prevents the loss of moisture and is a great barrier tool. However, since it doesn’t allow the loss of moisture, that means that sweat won’t be able to escape. Therefore, your sweat will build up and cause odor and your body won’t be able to regulate heat as well. Vaseline is also greasy and isn’t suitable for activities during the day. It is more suitable for overnight care and relief.

The reasons that Body Glide is more beneficial are many. It is comprised of completely natural ingredients and is a non-greasy formula that can go with you in humid or dry environments and still get the job done. It will not clog your pores, rather help keep them open. This is important because if your pores are clogged it can lead to acne, toxic build-ups, and other problems dermatologically.


There are a lot of people in the world who are sensitive to fragrances. It’s because of one or more of the chemicals included in the makeup of the fragrance. Some people experience irritation and/or allergic reactions to them. Most people automatically think of perfume and cologne when they think of fragrance, however, fragrances are added to so many things that you don’t think about. Some of these are air fresheners, cleaning products, toiletries, and pesticides.

As unfair and dangerous as it is, the ingredients that are used in the composition of fragrances are not legally required to be included on the label of the product. Therefore, if you have allergies or sensitivity to certain chemicals or even natural ingredients, you may not be aware that it is in what you’re purchasing, which could lead to avoidable irritation and allergic reactions. If you have an allergic reaction to fragrances, some common side effects are respiratory problems such as asthma, skin irritation and rashes, and headaches.

You can purchase and wear Body Glide products without worrying about reactions to mystery ingredients because they are made with natural ingredients only.


It is the 21st century and thanks to the unlimited source of communication and information we have on the internet, people are becoming more aware of the impact we’re having on the world around us. Body Glide products are vegan approved.

Being a vegan product means that the list of ingredients does not include any animal ingredients or ingredients that are derived from animals. Some of these ingredients include beeswax, honey, collagen, lanolin, carmine, albumen, cholesterol, gelatin, along with many others.

Many vegans also believe that a vegan product must be free from cruelty to animals via animal testing. However, because the term “vegan” is not regulated, it is most often used to note that a product is free from animal ingredients. That means that even products that are tested out on animals are able to claim they are vegan. This is important to know because it means that not all vegan products are cruelty-free. If that’s important to you, dig deep into the product and the company.

There are plenty of companies out there that offer vegan products that are also cruelty-free. These companies tend to be more than willing to share their product composition information with you. If a company doesn’t seem to want to give you a straight answer, you can assume that they are not truly vegan and cruelty-free.


Just like people are starting to favor vegan products more and more, they are also passionate about their products being cruelty-free. Being entirely cruelty-free means that there is not a single form of testing done on a single animal at any time during the making of whatever the company happens to offer. Just like not all vegan products are cruelty-free, not all cruelty-free products are vegan. To the satisfaction of many consumers, Body Glide is both.

It is very common for companies to avoid using animals for tests in the final stages of production, however, testing products during the process, or using ingredients from a third party, are common. Rest assured that Body Glide is indeed cruelty-free from beginning to end.

There are certain situations that require animal testing by law. Products with this requirement, despite what is written on the packaging, are not considered cruelty-free.
