Help protect your skin
before you jump in!

DermaSwim is the World's
First Pre-Swimming Lotion!


What are the ingredients in DermaSwim?

DermaSwim products are formulated using primarily natural ingredients, (97.5% Natural).

DermaSwim is made up with: Coconut Oil: Known for its moisturizing properties to keep the skin hydrated, Beeswax: A natural emollient that forms a protective barrier to retain moisture, Glycerin: Attracts and retains moisture, promoting skin hydration, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis): Offers soothing and moisturizing benefits for the skin, and Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis): Rich in antioxidants, providing protective effects. 

What if I want to put on both DermaSwim and SPF?

We have received feedback from our customers suggesting that the optimal method involves applying DermaSwim, allowing it to absorb for a few minutes or longer, and subsequently applying sunblock over it. Nevertheless, it is advisable to conduct a patch test on a small area of your skin with both products to ensure compatibility before widespread use.

Has DermaSwim been tested, and is it safe?

We rigorously test DermaSwim products for extensive hours in pools and hot tubs before introducing them to the public.

Over the years, tens of thousands of swimmers, including children, adults engaging in exercise or leisure swimming, individuals in aqua therapy, and serious competitors, have utilized DermaSwim products without any reported adverse reactions. Nevertheless, as a precautionary measure, we recommend conducting a patch test on a small area before widespread use to ensure compatibility with your skin type, as is advised with all lotions.

Is DermaSwim safe for kids or babies?

DermaSwim products are typically safe for children's skin; however, we strongly advise against using DermaSwim on children or infants who need to be carried.

DermaSwim can make the skin extremely slippery when wet. Only apply DermaSwim to children who can walk on their own and do not require carrying. Additionally, adhere to the regular instructions, which include never applicating DermaSwim to the bottoms of the feet. As with all lotions, it is essential to conduct a patch test on a small area beforehand to ensure compatibility with each child's skin type.

Does DermaSwim Pro need to be washed off after swimming?

Absolutely not! You can leave it on. DermaSwim Pro will absorb into your skin, leaving it soft and moisturized. Following a swim or hot tub session, a simple rinse in the shower to remove pool or hot tub water is sufficient – no need for soap. The experience for swimmers using DermaSwim Pro has been transformed. Instead of the old routine of vigorously scrubbing off chlorine after swimming, now just a quick shower is recommended to wash away any residual pool water.
Imagine, no more scrubbing rituals, and no post-swim itch or dryness. Just beautifully moisturized skin!


Are chlorine, bromine, and all the other stuff they put in pools and hot tubs really so bad?

These chemicals are necessary to keep pools clean and free of germs, bacteria, and more. That’s a good thing. Unfortunately, many people are seriously affected by these agents, including side effects such as itching, drying and pool rash. Those who experience these should find significant relief by using DermaSwim Pro, and enjoy their swims a great deal more than they used to.

Others who aren't as sensitive to chlorine and may feel they don't need a pre-swimming lotion. However, we believe that even if you don't notice excessive drying and itching or other side effects, 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?

We get this question a lot. We never scientifically tested whether there’s a difference. Some people 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?

We suggest two simple routines. One, 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.

Or, take a soapy shower before your swim, dry off, put your DermaSwim on, swim, then just rinse off the pool water without using soap. We prefer this method because it means more clean people in pools!

Either way, you've met the requirement, and you're ready for a swim with your protective lotion on. See "How do I use DermaSwim?" 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 products keeps pools cleaner since dry skin is sealed in rather than flaking off in the water. A bit unappealing, but true. Pool Facilities should appreciate this characteristic.

Can you put DermaSwim Pro all over your body?

DermaSwim can be applied to everywhere except for the bottoms of feet, hair, in the eyes, including the area around eyes where goggles cover, and since we get asked this a lot, it technically shouldn’t go on “privates”. Heck, we’ll just say it, it’s not recommended for genitals. However, in our view skin is skin, so if we’re talking about “regular” skin, sure, give it a try if there’s an issue. Mainly just don’t put it in the very private privates, if you know what we mean. Check with a dermatologist no matter what before putting it in remote places.

Many of our swimmers actually apply it over almost their entire bodies, as any missed spot becomes the itchy spot! DermaSwim products are for external use only. See "Instructions" for full usage details.

I have a strange skin reaction going on. Can you help us determine if DermaSwim will solve it?

We get a ton of emails about various skin conditions. We feel empathy for all of them and want to help. We can’t diagnose conditions, however. We always refer people back to their dermatologist. We recommend asking your doctor if he or she thinks DermaSwim will help the situation. It might be a good idea to take them the ingredients (which are listed above). We can say that DermaSwim seems to help with a lot of issues related to chlorine, bromine, etc., so we’re hopeful that whatever you might be experiencing can be resolved easily with DermaSwim as well!

Do you provide samples of DermaSwim products?

We no longer send small samples of DermaSwim lotions. The reason for this is that we have found it’s 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 help 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.

Is there a retailer near me?

We mainly sell DermaSwim through, online retailers, and through a variety of swim product stores and clubs. Because DermaSwim is a niche product (not everyone swims, and for that matter not all swimmers think they need DermaSwim, although we think they do), we don’t sell through a lot of brick and mortar stores. Feel free to email us to see if there’s a store near you, otherwise buying online is the way to go.
