Avanza Skin: Skincare for Active Skin

Avanza Skin: Skincare for Active Skin


Avanza Skin offers a range of skincare products designed specifically for athletes, addressing common concerns such as chafing, sweat acne, lip protection, rough skin, and dry hair. Our products cater to both amateur and professional athletes, providing effective solutions for their unique skin and hair needs. With a focus on innovation and performance, Avanza Skin is committed to helping athletes maintain healthy skin and hair while pursuing their active lifestyles.

The Birth of Avanza Skin

The concept of Avanza Skin emerged during our training for the NYC Marathon. As our distances increased, we noticed the toll it took on our skin. We encountered issues like chafing, breakouts from sweat, dry and brittle hair, and sunspots. To our surprise, we couldn’t find suitable products readily available in the market. Determined to find effective solutions tailored for athletes, we decided to combine our expertise and develop skincare and haircare products specifically designed to address these challenges.

Curated Kits for Different Workouts

To make it easier for active individuals to find the right skincare and haircare solutions, we have curated kits tailored to specific workout activities and their related skin concerns. Let’s explore two of our popular kits:

The Cyclist Kit

Designed for cyclists, this kit aims to prevent chafing and sweat acne while ensuring optimal comfort during long rides. It includes the following products:

  • Body Block: This product creates a protective barrier against friction caused by the saddle, tight clothes, and helmets.
  • After Workout Body Wash for Acne: Formulated with salicylic acid, this body wash prevents sweat acne and keeps the skin hydrated.
  • Gel for Workout Acne: This spot-on gel targets stubborn breakouts on both the face and body.
  • Cream for Bumpy Skin: Infused with urea, a natural exfoliant, this cream moisturizes the skin, improves texture, and removes dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and bump-free.

The Gym Kit

This kit is designed to help gym enthusiasts maintain healthy skin while working out. It includes the following products:

  • Face Wash for Athletes: Specifically formulated to remove sweat, dirt, and contaminants that clog pores and cause breakouts, this soapless face wash deeply cleans without drying the skin.
  • After Workout Body Wash: This body wash effectively removes dirt and grime accumulated during workouts while preserving the skin’s essential oils.
  • Cream for Rough Feet: After an intense workout, this cream helps refresh and recover tired feet. With the power of urea, it exfoliates dead cells and deeply hydrates, leaving feet revitalized and ready for the next session.
  • Body Block: To prevent chafing caused by dumbbells, tight clothes, or friction in the groin area, this body block offers a no-mess application.

Challenges and Opportunities

Like any industry, the skincare market poses its own challenges. One significant hurdle is the presence of intense competition from established brands offering generic products such as shampoo, face wash, and body wash. These large companies target broad and generic markets, making it crucial for Avanza Skin to differentiate itself and carve a niche for athlete-focused skincare and haircare products.

However, the skincare market also presents tremendous opportunities for Avanza Skin. With the growing emphasis on self-care, wellness, and fitness, there is a receptive market eager to embrace functional skincare products. By capitalizing on this demand, expanding our online presence, and fostering strategic partnerships, we can tap into new customer segments and enter untapped markets.
