Chlorine Removal News for Swimmers
Most swimmers know that chlorine can do a number on the hair if you are in the pool for too long. You can expect a lot of damage if you swim in a pool with chlorine, especially if you have colored hair.
Before trying SwimSpray, I had never really thought about trying this type of product although I frequently thought about the lingering effects of chlorine on my hair and skin. I will certainly always have this type of product in my swim bag from now on and for the foreseeable future it will be SwimSpray.
Does it work? In a word - yes. I actually planned to devise a blinded trial for the product to really test its effectiveness. I had already used the product a few times, and really seemed to feel less irritation afterwards - but the product tester in me watned to know for sure. After all, I'm not immune to the placebo effect. However, a few days later, I forgot to bring my SwimSpray with me, and the familiar irritation and burn was back right away. That was all the convincing I needed.
Unlike the marketed "swim shampoos" this product [SwimSpray] actually works (and works really well). It may not directly make you faster, but by removing the negative consequences of chlorine it could improve your desire to spend lots of time in the pool. Thus, it makes my top 7 list.

Aside from surprising breakthroughs in eliminating chlorine, SwimSpray, LLC has also demonstrated that they are truly a company "by swimmers for swimmers."
For the first time my office didn't smell like chlorine after I had already left it. For the first time, none of my colleagues commented on whether or not they could tell that I had been swimming that morning. And, for the first time, when I went to do my afternoon bike trainer workout, I didn't sweat out the chlorine that had been trapped in my pores all day.

Swimmers often report smelling like chlorine along with damaged hair and dry, itchy skin. Dr. Andrew Chadeayne solved these problems with a new patent-pending vitamin C formulation called SwimSpray.
Swimmers smell like chlorine. Right? At least that's how it's been for since I started swimming. But, recently Andrew Chadeayne has solved this problem by inventing a method of removing chlorine from hair and skin with vitamin C.
I'm so thankful I found SwimSpray, which is an all-natural product that helps remove chlorine from hair and skin that we collect during length swim workouts. I honestly can't express how impressed I am with something that is so natural and just concentrated vitamins.

This year, swimmers at Potomac Valley Swimming's October Open smelled a lot less like chlorine. Team SwimSpray provided interested swimmers and parents with a free sample of SwimSpray. We distributed about 2000 1 oz sample bottles.
Now if you’ve ever been told by your friends or your family that you smell like chlorine…I remember going on a school bus everyday and always got told that I smelled like chlorine. Of course I didn’t know about it because you become immune to it once you’re in the pool a lot. But if you want to get rid of that smell and get rid of the chlorine feel in your hair and on your body, then this stuff is very good. Its called SwimSpray.
Over the past year, we have recognized that the biggest challenge for SwimSpray is convincing people that it actually works. So-called "swimmer's shampoos," such as UltraSwim and TriSwim, are notoriously ineffective. To distinguish ourselves, we wanted to show people that SwimSpray is different because SwimSpray actually works.
I bought two small bottles and when I first tried to use them I thought I got ripped off. It sprays a fine mist over your body and I thought, "there is no way this stuff is going to do anything," but sure enough it totally kills the chlorine smell.
Around the pool and Twitter, swimmers are saying SwimSpray is the answer to the chlorine problem!
Many of you out there know that SwimSpray is led by a team of former Princeton University swimmers. Some of us here graduated 10+ years ago. Some of us weren't even in school or on the team at the same time. But we all had the PUCSDT experience, and that links us in a way that only swimmers really understand.
People are seeking natural alternatives to chlorine upon learning how this chemical is utilized in hundreds of products.
Get the story behind SwimSpray and its beginnings.
This trip far exceeded my expectations. I was reminded about how great it is to be part of the swimming family. Several interactions went something like this: Oh, you're a swimmer - me too - I like you - I like you too!
Customer feedback has driven our research and development. A few of our customers have found that SwimSpray's existing low pH formulation stings a little on raw skin.. So, we have developed a "sensitive skin" version that solves that problem. That should be available this summer. We have also been asked to develop a body wash, so we did.
Our Summer hair care arsenal will not be without SwimSpray! We need this product to maintain the health and length of our hair after swimming in our chlorinated pool.
This reunion was particularly fun for me because so many people were supporting SwimSpray. When I walked onto the deck of the Alumni Meet, head coach C. Rob Orr was wearing a SwimSpray T-shirt.
After being in the pool all day, the first thing I use is a product called SwimSpray, which has been specifically designed to get rid of chlorine and that chlorine smell. It's such an amazing product and can be used on your hair or skin.
We have had a very exciting couple of weeks at SwimSpray. We have selected two new summer interns to help us distribute the product at the U.S. Olympic Training Center, Santa Clara Grand Prix, Olympic Trials, and the U.S. Open.
We’ve noticed that SwimSpray has recently sponsored a bunch of open water swims, including the Jim McDonnell Lake Swims, the Chris Green Lake Cable Swim, the Minnetonka Challenge, U.S. Masters 9+ Mile Open Water Championship, and The Tulsa Swim.
For me, working at a law firm was stressful. Often, I’d find myself sweating bullets for fear of making a mistake or missing a deadline. Since I was swimming in the mornings, my body would ooze chlorine. My eyes would burn and my face and neck would become red and irritated. My colleagues would joke about how my office smelled like bleach.
I recently sat down with Andrew Chadeayne, founder of SwimSpray, to get the 411 on his company and the culture at SwimSpray.
In short I am sold on this after one use. I have used expensive shampoos from my barber, more reasonable shampoos like TriSwim and they did work but it always felt like it was more of a cover up that a removal of the Chlorine.
Dr. Chadeayne explains, "SwimSpray is concentrated vitamin C. It is beneficial after any exposure to oxidizing conditions, including sunlight, oxygen, chlorine, bromine, etc. After swimming in the ocean, I noticed that using SwimSpray seemed to make my hair and body feel lighter and cleaner. The salt water environment is oxidizing. Sunlight is definitely oxidizing. SwimSpray is a very potent antioxidant and can help with all of these problems."
As a kid, I always smelled like chlorine. My hair and skin oozed chlorine. But I loved the smell because it reminded me of swimming. I also took pride in my distinct fragrance. During gym, other kids would tell me that I wreaked of chlorine. I enjoyed explaining that I smelled like chlorine because I trained at 5 am while they were in bed.
Asha Randall, a member of Great Britainʼs National Synchronized Swimming Team, describes it, “you can never quite get rid of the swimming pool smell so I constantly smell of chlorine!"
Swimmers are a special breed. Swim-moms (and dads) love and support them through the long winters and summers and endless early morning practices. It’s no surprise when they achieve success later in life.
Well, I’ve found another success story from the sport, one I’m fascinated by.

The Amazing Story of How This Princeton Swimmer Figured Out How to Eliminate Chlorine Stink - www.DailyHouse.com (February 23, 2012)
In sports, as well as entrepreneurship, the people we read about seem to burst fully grown from the ether of the universe. The effort and years spent preparing and chasing a goal are often mentioned by authors – but usually just as quickly brushed aside. So let’s take a few moments to appreciate how miraculous were the confluence of skills and experiences and study that allowed Andrew Chadeayne to develop a product, appropriately named SwimSpray, that completely eliminates the smell of chlorine from your body after swimming.
Personally, I love the smell of chlorine. But many people tire of showing up at school smelling like they brought the entire swimming pool with them. I know my mother would have appreciated this product after her eyes teared up from the chlorine flooding out of our pores from the unusually high levels in the pool one day.
Hate the smell of chlorine? I do. Although some swimmers enjoy that Eau de Chlorine aroma, I prefer to smell like salt and sunshine… not pool chemicals.
When high-school swimming was through, I remember feeling totally elated that I would no longer smell like a bottle of bleach all the time. And when I started swimming again a couple years ago, I greeted that smell—which hangs on the skin for days, no matter what you do in the shower—with dismay. So when I got a bottle of SwimSpray for free at the Great Chesapeake Bay Swim, I was eager to try it, though admittedly skeptical. Here’s the deal: It totally works.
With the summer pool season just weeks away, swimmers will no longer smell like chlorine. Used after swimming, SwimSpray eliminates chlorine odor and irritation from hair and skin. Invented by a swimmer, SwimSpray is 100% natural with Vitamin C.
