"WD40-Time Off" - Spray on Sunscreen that reportedly repels chlorine and makes you swim faster with less drag!



A company called Swim Spray, has announced a licensing agreement with the WD-40 people for a spray-on sunscreen that, according to the literature, Reduces drag, repels chlorine, moisturizes skin, and provides SPF 80 protection and anti-fungal properties.

So I looked deeper into the ingredients making sure I wasn't actually spraying a "high rez" mineral oil on myself after getting the demo and let me say thank God for Wikipedia:

Partial list of the ingredients: "... Phenylephrine, pramoxine and hydrocortisone. Aloe vera, shark liver oil and yeast extract.

Apparently the first two ingredients are allergy related to contract the skin somewhat and the cortisone is probably uses to reduce inflammation from chlorine. the question s, would the cortisone make you test positive in a drug test?

BTW, in the top right photos of the website, what is that guy looking at? ;-)
