Discover the ingredients that power our formulas.
German Alpine Chamomile and Bisabolol:
German alpine chamomile is rich in antioxidant terpenes. These terpenes help reduce inflammation and have natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties. The extracts have been used for medicinal purposes since Roman times.
We included German alpine chamomile in our products, which has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-irritant and anti-microbial properties and is superior in performance to the more commonly used Roman chamomile.
Bisabolol is one of the most powerful terpenes in German chamomile. The bisabolol we use is extracted with CO2 to ensure there is no residue or contaminants from carriers. Bisabolol is known for anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. It helps to draw moisture into the skin, keeping skin moist, supple and less likely to chafe or become irritated. It is an excellent source of Vitamin B (panthenol).
We use both German alpine chamomile and bisabolol for a concentration of the powerful natural benefits of these ancient medicinal herbs.
Organic Tea Tree Oil:
Tea tree oil has been used as a traditional medicinal treatment by Aboriginal Australians for centuries. The oil has been adopted for use in natural healing products as a strong broad-spectrum antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungicide with properties to treat skin infections and irritations.
We use an organic tea tree oil that is free from herbicides and pesticides and has been produced in a sustainable manner.
The bergamot fruit is from the citrus family and the oils are extracted from the rind. The oil has calming effects by lowering cortisol levels. It has antibacterial and antibiotic properties, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and infection. Compounds in bergamot are antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory. It calms nerve sensitivity, acting as a natural pain reliever.
The scent is traditionally used to alleviate stress and promote a feeling of strength.
The origins of bergamot’s discovery are unclear. We know bergamot was found along the old trade routes from central Asia to Italy and the Canary Islands, and has been used as a healing and skin care ingredient for centuries.
Olive Oil and Olive Fruit Oil:
Olive oil is one of the most prestigious oils of the Mediterranean, used not only in food but also in cosmetic and body care applications. It is easily absorbed and helps protect the skin from dehydration. We use unsaponifiable olive oil obtained from the cold pressing of olives. This high grade fraction of the oil does not contain fatty compounds. It is rich in phytosterols, squalene, beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol, valuable substances for the skin with antioxidant benefits.
Team one20percent pedaled our bikes thousands of kilometers and ran up and down mountains with backpacks and heart rate monitor straps to stress test chamois cream formulas with and without silicone. We found that adding a touch of premium silicone to our organic beeswax base gave the added durability and multi-hour anti-chafe protection required for a high-performance product suitable for training and racing. Our expert team chemist selected a safe high-performance silicone that is non-occlusive (breathable), non-comedogenic (does not block pores), with a molecule too large for transdermal absorption.
The result is our V120 and P120 anti-chafe creams with our proprietary moisture-proof breathable barrier.
Our safe high-performance silicone is clear and colourless and works with our organic beeswax to create a thin but highly effective barrier that protects the skin and adds to the spread of the product. Say goodbye to white, waxy films from excess wax or petroleum based ingredients sitting on your skin surface or on your clothing. The protective barrier in our formulas is hard at work for you, without sitting for hours on the skin surface.
