HikeGoo™, RunGoo™, WalkGoo™, and SilkStep™ foot creams are good for feet because they prevent blisters and provide moisturization. All of our products help avoid foot problems by forming a friction-free layer between the skin and sock. This protective layer reduces rubbing and friction and so relieves a variety of foot problems including blisters, callus formation, soft tissue bruising, and sore feet. Each formulation is different and contains a balance of hard wax, lanolin, and natural vegetable waxes to moisturize and protect feet from abrasion and foot fatigue.
Each of our protective foot creams is formulated for specific activities and footwear. The relative percentage of hard vs soft waxes in each product’s formulation enables it to perform optimally for that activity. The more hard wax, the longer the product stays on the skin’s surface and the slower it absorbs. HikeGoo has the most hard wax and will last in the harsh environment of a boot on an all-day climb. The higher percentage of soft waxes in the foot cream, the greater absorption and dry skin moisturization. SilkStep has the most soft waxes and is optimized for moisturization. RunGoo has the hard wax persistence of HikeGoo but also some added soft wax moisturization.
Rather than repelling moisture or attempting to block sweat, our unique formulations actually absorb sweat and moisture to become even more effective in reducing friction between the skin and sock. This is why they are highly effective in both dry and wet conditions to protect feet from blisters, callus formation, and skin damage.
