A multi-purpose, skin & clothing friendly, ultra-endurance anti chafe balm. This product will help protect your skin from chafing, blisters, friction and rubbing as well as keeping your skin in good condition.
When we develop a product at Premax, it’s at least a two-year process. We start with the ‘problem’ and in the case of anti-chafing balms, the issues we discovered were that other products didn’t go the distance – especially in the salt water, and that tube-based products were messy to apply, and that petroleum-based products would eat away at wetsuits.
There had to be a better alternative, so we started from scratch and enlisted some of the world’s best endurance athletes to help test and refine the product so it was more effective and better for the skin than any other product on the market.
Over two years later, Premax Anti Friction Balm hit the shelves, well actually, the sports bags of triathletes, runners, adventurers, and many other people that experience chaffing.
The super long-lasting lubrication come from a plant derived, biodegradable triglyceride in tandem with beeswax. From a product performance perspective, these two natural wonders do the job, however, we’ve also blended in other natural ingredients that condition the skin and help fight bacteria.
Premax Anti Friction Balm also contains Aloe Vera, a soothing antibacterial and powerful antioxidant. To boost the antibacterial properties of the balm we also included not one, but three natural antibacterial and antifungal agents; Tea Tree Oil, Bergamot Oil, and Mandarin Oil. They’re also great for your skin – and so are Soya Bean Oil and Vitamin E which are also included.
In short, Premax Anti Friction Balm will eliminate chafing as well as benefit your skin.
“Each summer I compete in an open water swim race every weekend for 3 months straight, as well as completing at least 4 x 4km training sessions each week. I’ve tried every anti chafing balm there is, and hands down the Premax Anti Friction Balm is the winner. It’s easy and clean to apply, doesn’t wear off at all, and being a non-petroleum based product my wetsuits have kept in great condition. I apply this balm to my neck, chin, and under the arms for all swims in the open water whether I’m wearing a wetsuit or not. Chafing can be a major problem for open water swimmers, but now that I’m using Premax, it’s one thing I don’t worry about now.” Rohan Fanning Multiple Open Water Swim Event Winner (50-59), Australia
Premax Anti Friction Balm is housed in a large lip balm type applicator, so gently wind the mechanism so the product can be applied to the areas that may experience chaffing.
Areas that may experience chafing include the heels, between the toes, inner thighs, around heart rate monitor chest straps, crop tops, and bra straps. Other areas can include under the arms, nipples, and for those in wetsuits around the neck, shoulders and chin.
Although it’s formulated for use during sports, Premax Anti Friction Balm can be used at any time to prevent day to day chafing problems.
Our balm has a softer consistency than other anti-chafing balms, so it’s easy and comfortable to apply. Only a small amount is required for each area, however what you do, your skin type, the humidity on the day, your clothing, how long you exercise, and how much you sweat all play a part.
After a few sessions with Premax Anti Friction Balm you’ll work out what’s right for you, but to start it’s better to use a little more than a little less for obvious reasons. And for those who exercise all day (and night), you should reapply every 3-5 hours.
“All in all, I’m very impressed and it’s a product I use on every run. A little goes a long way and my 60g stick lasted 3 months and 450 miles. For me, Premax Anti Friction Balm has had the biggest impact on my running this year. I don’t have to worry about chafing, psychologically it makes focusing on the training session or race performance that bit easier.” James Mackeddie, Adventurer, Endurance Athlete, UK
Anti-friction balm is a must have for Marathoners. On race day I use it liberally on my feet and toes, plus other areas that are vulnerable to skin irritation from rubbing such as my crop top band. My partner Dylan and I have both been using the Premax Anti Friction Balm to prevent and manage blisters whilst travelling abroad and are very happy with the product. It’s small size makes it easy to travel with but it conveniently lasts for a very long time so we haven’t had to worry about replacing it whilst away!

Being a triathlon coach, sports physio who works with elite triathletes, and a 10 x Ironman triathlon & Kona finisher myself I’ve used my fair share of anti friction products! Hand on heart, the Premax Anti Friction Balm is the best I’ve used. It is very easy to apply and I have never been chafed at all when I have used this product.

Quite simply, it's the bee's knees! If you swim in a wetsuit, use a heart rate strap or wear anything else that rubs, then you simply can not go past Premax Anti Friction Balm. Not only is it the most magical balm I’ve come across, but its easy application is a dream and unlike some it does not mark your clothes/kit.
