ARLINGTON, Va., May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
"I was ready to give up swimming because of the post-workout chlorine smell I always had," says Andrew Chadeayne, PhD and inventor of SwimSpray. After trying three or four other products in the market, Dr. Chadeayne, who holds a PhD in Chemistry from Cornell University, was determined to solve his problem. After months of research, he developed the all natural formula used in SwimSpray to prevent chlorine from bonding to hair and skin.
Dr. Chadeayne, a former Princeton University swimmer, was able to regain his collegiate form and become the 2011 U.S. Masters Swimming National Champion in the 200 Backstroke. "SwimSpray allowed me to swim as much as I wanted with none of the usual chlorine related side effects. I invented the product because like many swimmers I was tired of smelling like chlorine all the time."
Dr. Chadeayne initially invented SwimSpray just for himself and his swimmer friends. However, in just a few short months SwimSpray spread to the elitist levels of the sport. This past weekend, SwimSpray debuted at the USA Swimming 2011 Charlotte UltraSwim Grand Prix Meet and is now in the hands of the nation's top swimmers. Almost 900 swimmers including Olympians Michael Phelps, Natalie Coughlin, and Ryan Lochte, swam for an audience of 5,000 over the course of the four day meet.
"I can't believe the excitement for SwimSpray. It initially started as a product for my swimmer friends and is now a thriving, successful consumer products business." Dr. Chadeayne graduated from George Washington Law School and left his full-time position at Washington D.C.'s most prestigious intellectual property firm to run SwimSpray, LLC in 2011.
"Swimming in chlorinated or brominated pools is like taking a bath in bleach – that just isn't good for your skin and hair. SwimSpray is 100% natural with vitamin C and eliminates chlorine odor and irritation. As a swimmer, I didn't believe that was possible having tried many of the existing chlorine removal products in the market. It was a common belief among swimmers – you were always going to smell like chlorine. Now a swimmer never has to smell like chlorine again with SwimSpray," says Dr. Chadeayne.
