We are RiDE:Skincare

After years spent chasing the waves, snow and trails we were always trying to find natural products that would protect our skin in all conditions. None had the performance we needed, or were full of harsh chemicals, so we created Ride Skincare. Using simple, natural, organic ingredients all of our products have been specifically designed from the beginning to perform in the most extreme environments.

Designed for action

Right from the beginning Ride Skincare products have been designed to be used for outdoors action sports. Over 2 years of testing in every environment imaginable has resulted in a product that performs! Our Ride Protect sunscreen uses natural candelilla wax to give excellent water resistant properties and because we don’t use any harsh chemicals there’s no stinging of the eyes. Titanium Dioxide (a natural mineral) provides sun protection whilst organic jojoba oil helps keep skin in top condition. Our Ride Recover moisturiser uses aloe vera to rehydrate skin even after the most extreme activities. All our products are under 100ml so can be taken as hand luggage or easily stashed in your pack or saddle bag. A secure flip top lid makes for ease of use and no spillage!

Natural

At RiDE: Skincare we care about our environment, whether this is in the mountains or down by the sea white is why all our products are reef safe. Whilst designing our products we have tried to keep packaging down to a minimum and make sure the products are manufactured in the UK to cut down on miles travelled.  We also care about the health of our skin, and this is why we only use natural ingredients with no parabens, oxybenzone, nano particles or phenoxyethanol.

Key Ingredients

Green tea

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract has excellent antioxidant properties being rich in polyphenols which help fight against UV damage and free radicals. The extract also contains methylxanthines that stimulate the skin’s microcirculation and positively influence the tone and health of skin. All in all it’s an excellent addition to our Ride Recover moisturiser.

Jojoba oil

Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) oil is produced from the seed of the Jojoba plant which is indigenous to Northern Mexico, California and Arizona. Famous for its use by Native American tribes the oil has many excellent skin benefits and contains lots of minerals and vitamins such as vitamin E and zinc to keep skin healthy. With very good moisturising and soothing properties it was a natural choice to include in our Ride Protect SPF 30 all natural sunscreen.

Aloe vera

Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) is full of great vitamins such as beta carotene and vitamin E which can help the skins natural firmness and keep it hydrated. The Ancient Egyptians knew about its benefits and who are we to argue with them?

Titanium dioxide

Non-nano Titanium Dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral and is used for our sun protection instead of synthetic chemical filters such as Oxybenzone and Octyl Methoxycinnamate. It sits on top of the skin and reflects back the suns harmfull UVA and UVB rays. Because it sits on the skin it also protects against windburn and starts protecting as soon as it’s applied.

Benzoate

Sodium benzoate & Benzoic acid

Preservatives are essential to keep products safe, but those typically used such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol can be controversial in skincare. Instead we use Sodium Benzoate and Benzoic Acid as our preservatives, which occur naturally in many fruits.

Shea butter

Shea butter

Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter) is extracted from the nuts of the Shea-Karite tree which grow exclusively in the tropics of Africa and can live for up to 200 years. With high levels of vitamin A and E, Shea butter is perfect to maintain healthy skin. It’s particularly useful at combating dry, itchy skin and also acts as an anti-inflammatory helping to sooth sunburnt or irritated skin, which makes it an ideal candidate to include in our Ride Recover moisturiser.

Sunflower

Sunflower seed oil

Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil is used in Ride Recover to help repair the skins natural barrier. This seed oil is also high in fatty acids to hydrate dry skin and mimics the skins own fat content (lipid) to help reduce moisture loss for smoother skin. It’s also very high in antioxidant rich vitamin E which protects the skin from free radicals and sun damage.

Ccandelilla

Candelilla Wax

Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax comes from the leaves of the candelilla shrub that is native to northern Mexico and the SW United States. In Ride Protect it is used to give a high level of water resistance so you can be sure you’re still protected even in the water.
