Q: Can I use it to prevent a rash?
A: SETT Surf Rash Cream is designed to provide relief once a rash has appeared, and get you back enjoying the water as soon as possible, using only natural ingredients.
The natural oils and candelila wax in SETT Surf Rash Cream may create a barrier between your skin and board/boardshorts/wetsuit etc when applied before surfing, however I’m afraid I can’t guarantee it will always stop a rash from forming...but if a rash does form, your Surf Rash Cream will be there so you can still enjoy your time in the water surfing.
NB: If you do apply before surfing, be sure to let Surf Rash Cream sink into the skin so it isn't slippery.
Q: Does it contain petrolatum?
A: NO! SETT Surf Rash Cream is Paraben free, sulfate free, silicone free and petrolatum free.
Q: Is it natural?
A: SETT Surf Rash Cream is a natural product. Your skin is the largest organ you have, so given that your skin will accept and absorb the creams you put on it, I thought this was important!
Q: How long will it last?
A: It is very thick cream so you don't need much; I estimate that there is 50 surfs worth in a 100ml tube, but ultimately it depends on how sparingly you use it. SETT Surf Rash Cream is good for 12 months once opened.
Q: Where is it made and how do I know it is safe?
A: The cream is produced in the UK, and was developed to exceed the strict European Union cosmetic regulations at every step, including safety assessment, stability, challenge and compatibility testing.
Q: Does it contain any allergens?
A: Yes - the only allergen identified in testing was Lavender Water; this allergen is present from this natural essential oil.
Q: What does SETT Surf Rash Cream smell like?
A: Tea Tree oil is the smell you will notice; in order to not risk irritating skin further, there is no added fragrance.
Q: How does it feel on my skin?
A: SETT Surf Rash Cream is designed to sink into your skin, and not leave an oily residue. The Candelila wax which helps with waterproofing may be noticeable at first, but should then sink in within a few minutes.
