A Simple Idea
Brave Soldier began with a simple idea: The need for a product that would speed the healing and jagged scarring of road rash. Road rash. It's as ugly as it sounds. A bad crash, a hard slide, a nasty fall. Stripped of a layer of skin, the flesh is left red, raw and painful. For most athletes, skin abrasions occur often and come with the territory.
So, a successful Southern California Dermatologist along with an avid sense of adventure
, embarked on this mission: To utilize the knowledge of how our skin heals itself to create a unique formula to help heal wounds faster, with less pain, and reduced scarring.
Beginning with a base formula originally developed for laser surgery, Brave Soldier was created. Pure ingredients such as tea tree oil, one of nature's strongest antiseptics along with cutting edge advances in dermatological science and clinical wound healing procedures, helped secure the Brave Soldier brand.
With a hot Southern California summer beginning, Brave Soldier found a virtually endless supply of willing candidates to try our new Antiseptic Healing Ointment product. Thousands experienced help with quicker healing, reduced scarring, and effective pain relief for road rash and other injuries.
This "grass roots" approach is evident in every aspect of the development of Brave Soldier's Antiseptic Healing Ointment. Soon, word spread. A revolutionary new product had been born. Multiple national magazines featured the Brave Soldier product right away, including USA Today, Allure Magazine, and Los Angeles Magazine. Since then, other publications including Men’s Health, Esquire, and Endurance Magazine, have featured multiple Brave Soldier products.
Since then, we began to bring the concept of athletic skin care to sports competitions across the country. Along the way, we met mountain bikers, climbers, adventure racers, marathon runners, and many not-so-extreme, weekend warrior sports enthusiasts. We listened to their stories. We learned and began to grow. Slowly, new products began to evolve, one at a time. Just like our Antiseptic Healing Ointment, these new products were born out of necessity.
