Episode 119 – Sue Kerber of Rad Soap Co.

Share

It all began in a small kitchen fueled by a mother’s love where the founder, Sue Kerber searched for something natural to relieve her son’s eczema. In early 2009, she turned her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for blending natural ingredients into what is today known as the Rad Soap Co.


From that point forward Sue and her family developed a unique and top secret proprietary process for creating their handcrafted batches of soap. The process includes suspending the soap in a glycerin state with botanicals and essential oils never being exposed to caustic sodas/lye therefore never altering the delicate state of those natural ingredients. To this day RAD’s unique process of production has never been duplicated to their knowledge. RAD’s products are crafted and ready for delivery within 24 hours thus delivering the freshest all-natural body care to our beloved consumers and wholesale partners.

A group of unexpected loyal customers got behind the family and their award-winning products from day one with the power of a grassroots movement which took on a life of its own. Rad was also accepted/requested into the world of the highly prestigious, trending and selective Korean Beauty/Skin Care market when they became one of the first and only American family-owned companies to sell their products in South Korea.

 

Today, The Rad Soap Co. is committed to being the consumers the most trusted source for natural body care products. RAD Soap adheres to strict quality standards due to the founder’s belief “If my family won’t use it, then we won’t sell it”. We believe in products with a purpose.

Gear Review: Bag Balm First Aid

Share

 

Spending most of my life ski racing in Vermont and New England, a small square tin of bag balm was always in my ski pack. The Vermont based company was started in 1899 to soothe and restore dairy cows’ chapped udders. However, as anyone who is into Alpine skiing knows a little bag balm on a subzero day on your cheeks can ward off frostbite and windburn.

Bag Balm is one of those companies which is an iconic image of winter for many of us. Recently Bag Balm has been mixing it up creating new products beyond their original. Their new Bag Balm First Aid builds on their original formula adding in Benzethonium Chloride, an antimicrobial agent.

 

Bag Balm First Aid is made up of five ingredients:

  • Petrolatum
  • Benzethonium Chloride (antimicrobial agent)
  • Lanolin
  • Paraffin Wax
  • Purified water

 

But what about it in real life? 

So Bag Balm sent me a tin of their new Bag Balm First Aid, and I wondered – How am I going to use this? I didn’t have any open cuts, scrapes, or anything that needed first aid, and I wasn’t about to take a spill to try out a new product. That would be stupid.

However, I did end up going on a long trail run/hike while at my inlaws family reunion. I hike Mount Timpanogos here in Utah. The total run/hike was over 13 miles and was the most extended adventure I had done in a while.  When I was training for Ultras and other extreme endurance events, I always use to put a little cream between my thighs to ward off chafing.

Worth the early wake-up and chafing to see this…

This run, however, I spaced as I left the tent at 3:45 am without doing any chafe prep. By the time I was back down to the bottom, I had a nice rash forming from my shorts chafing against my skin on either thigh. I got home the next day and saw the Bag Balm First Aid and had that lightbulb moment.

While I didn’t go on the adventure wanting to chafe I was glad that the Bag Balm First Aid was there waiting for me. I applied some to my rough skin, and within a day or two, the rash and irritated skin was back to normal.  Quick and simple.

The new formula has the same texture and consistency as the original, but I was thankful for the antimicrobial properties. Next time I go for a run, I will remember to put on the Bag Balm BEFORE I leave, not after the fact.

 

Bag Balm First Aid

Who is it for? Any endurance athletes who are prone to chafing will find Bag Balm a good option when looking for an anti-chafing agent. And if you are like me, it works well for after-care as well as pre-workout care.

In addition to Bag Balm Original and Bag Balm First Aid, the company has also recently released Bag Balm Pet to help keep your Pet’s paws, noises, and other areas moist and soft.

Notes From a Recovering Competitive Athlete: Ditch the Watch

Share

For years I made sure my GPS watch was all charged up and ready to go on each hike. I calculated my distance, time, and heart rate. It became a ritual, a routine that I felt naked when I didn’t have it. Recently in my question to find balance and just joy and love for all things active again. I have sometimes been ditching the watch and just going out on a trail adventure.

Today was one of those days, not by choice but laziness by not charging up my watch after the last adventure. I did want to bring my watch as I chose a different trail than I had done before. I always like to track those things and at first, I did feel naked without the watch.

Then I settled into the hike/run and what happened? I started to notice more things around me. I watched the bees both honey and bumble on the queen anne’s lace all around. I saw so many butterflies! I stopped when I wanted and had some music playing without really knowing how far I had gone, how fast, or my heart rate.

 

It turned into a wonderful experience. Can I post it on Strava? No. Can I have it count towards my TomTom Activity? No. But what I can do is know what I did on the trail, know the adventure my dogs had, and share a few moments from my experience today.

 

How about you? Do you love having tech track your workouts or are you old school and map a trail on a map then just go for it?
