Doc's was founded as a result of Dr. 'Doc' Joshua Barton being unsatisfied with the quality of cycling specific skin care creams available on the market. As a competitive cyclist himself, Barton worked with both pharmacists and chemists for four years inn order to produce a new line of all natural skin care products designed specifically for athletes. The company launched in 2010 with an all natural chamois cream, and now it provides a host of products, including the Massage Elixir, to world class cyclists, triathletes, runners, and endurance athletes around the world. Doc's skin care line covers three areas: protection during sporting activities, repair when the aforementioned protection isn't enough, and aiding in normal recovery. Falling under the recovery category is Doc's Massage Elixir. This is a light formulation that provides excellent slip and glide that won't leave your skin feeling greasy. And because it's composed with natural botanicals, oils, and only the ingredients that're absolutely necessary and effective, the elixir absorbs quicker than most massage oils, leaving your skin moisturized and refreshed. Another benefit to using all natural ingredients is that they're healthier and safer than the alternative chemicals that're commonly found in oils. Additionally, they also eliminate any chance of toxic chemicals from being absorbed through your skin and into your body. Doc's Massage Elixir leaves a light fragrance and is intended for use by either a masseuse or for self massage before and after workouts. Doc's Massage Elixir comes in a 4. 5 ounce bottle and is manufactured in the USA.
