911-kit

No pain, no gain or the art of recovery!

I’m a wannabe skateboarder and that doesn’t come cheap!

Muscle aches, bruises, road rash and cuts, … you name it, I got it!

Here’s the content of my 911-let’s survive the daily minor injuries!

1. Muscle ache and bruises? Let’s go for the Epsom salt in a hot bath.

Don’t have a bath tub? Just mix the salt with water and apply with on a compress.

2. Bruises? Try the green clay by the Clayers. Apply the clay, like you would spread Nutella on your soft taco and let it dry watching the TV.

3. Road rash? Here comes the green clay again. It works on burns, bugs bites and cuts.

It’s also antibacterial to avoid infection.

You can also use the bag balm on the cuts, road rash or even dry lips.

4. Lumps after a shock? Soak your Dr Cool compression wrap in the water, put in the freezer for 20 minutes and wrap it around the lump. Sizes and colors available!

The KT Tape, for the muscle aches … check their PDF guide depending on where you are hurt to apply the tape appropriately. Keep it 3-7 days. It gives you good support all day long.

5. Also to reduce muscle pain, the compression short from Skins is quite handy.

6. Regarding the shocks in the ankles, knees and hips while trying to land, I trust my PF insoles to reduce the vibrations by 95%!

I hope you won’t need all of this but if you do, you know what to do! Stay safe!

Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?

23 Nov

Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?
Recently I started racing pumptracks, now I’m testing my balance and coordination doing tricks with my new skateboard …
You don’t make omelet without breaking eggs … I’m the egg … I get road rash, cuts and of course bruises … not good during the bermuda season in sunny Miami … I needed a solution … and I did found it with the green clay paste from the Clayers!

Let’s talk to Thibault (aka Tibs) the founder of the Clayers.
Who are you Tibs? How did you discover green clay?
I’m a professional skateboarder (@tibsparise) and I have been using the french green clay in France when I got injured. I healed up my knee, rashes and other wounds. I discovered it from a friend.
But since I’m in the USA, I couldn’t find this product I trust and love, so I decided to make it and share it.

What’s the green clay?
The French Green Clay is technically mud, but it is really rich in minerals and help the healing of injuries and skin issues. It’s natural and has been used for centuries, Cleopatra, soldiers, and more people have been using it.
French green clay is composed of different clays, illite, kaolin, montmorrillonite, bentonite and/or others.

Where is it coming from?
You can find green clay all around the World, but the one we use and have is from a volcanic area in France. It’s certified USDA Organic, it’s composed of 3 differents pure clay, which makes it unique and the purest in the world. Our clay is even scientifically proven. We have been picky on the choice of our ingredients, we care about quality.

How do you apply it?
The application is different as a cream, you have to apply a thick layer on the wound or skin condition, and let it dry. The more you apply, the more it absorbs and remove toxins. Just do not let it dry out on your face.

What can it heal?
It can heal inflammations, road rash, joint pain, bruises, sore muscle and more, also skin condition like acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburns and burns.

What are the range of products available?
Right now we have

  • the Classic Clayer ready to use paste that you can use on everything we said above, it’s composed of our high quality French Green Clay and Alkaline water from Carlsbad California (6floz for $24)
  • the French Green Clay powder (20oz for $49)is available for your DIY facemask or poultice.

Thanks Tibs, this clay seems very interesting.
Actually, I’ve been testing it for some weeks now and I love it!
The great thing about the green clay is that it works too if you don’t skate … sprain ankle, tired muscles, … it will work miracles for anyone.
Do I like it? Yes!
Because it’s organic, because it’s easy to use and because it works!

Thanksgiving is around the corner and our friends from the Clayers are offering 40% OFF for Black Friday Week!
