I just want to get the chlorine off!

If you’ve spent any time in a chlorinated swimming pool, you already know that chlorine has a way of just sticking around. You may have tried showering and washing multiple time, but somehow you just end up smelling like chlorine.

Your skin may feel dry or itch, and when you sweat a chlorine odor oozes from your pores. Your hair may turn dry and brittle (otherwise known as swimmer’s hair)–or even worse turn a shade of green.

Until now, swimmers have tolerated these negative effects of chlorine.

What products should I use to get the chlorine off?

In order to get the chlorine off, you should use products formulated to reduce and gently remove chlorine. Goodbye Chlorine’s experts have spent years perfecting formulations that all work to remove chlorine from swimmers after leaving the pool.

Anti-chlorine Soap

As you may already know, regular soap doesn’t do a very good job of getting the chlorine off. Our soap works best at home between swims to help continue removing any residual chlorine you may have missed at the pool. Of course you can use our soaps at the pool, we just find shower gel more convenient to carry. Our soap works because it’s contains special chlorine reducing agents that break the chlorine bond.

Pro tip: Use special soap for swimmers.

Anti-chlorine Shower Gel

Anti-chlorine shower gel is our go-to after swim product. It can be used on your skin and hair. It’s highly effective at removing chlorine and gentle enough to use every day. Make sure you have some in your swim bag at all times.

Anti-chlorine Shampoo

Goodbye Chlorine shampoo will help keep your hair looking healthy. It’s a gentle shampoo and helps tame hard to manage hair. Like all of our products, our shampoo effectively removes chlorine from your hair.

Many swimmers are looking for swimmer’s soap, the best swim soap, soap for washing chlorine off after swimming, or a soap for swimmers.

Does soap remove chlorine?

Yes it does, but you need to use a soap made with special ingredients made to remove chlorine. These specialized anti-chlorine soaps remove residual chlorine that has stuck to your skin.

The Big Problem Swimmers Have with Chlorine

First, let’s examine the problem with chlorine.

Have you tried showering multiple times after swimming, and still the chlorine sticks to you? Have you started sweating in the warm afternoon sun after swimming, and suddenly you smell the pool again? That smell is the residual chlorine that stuck to your hair and skin.

After some time, the chlorine really does a number on you. It dries out your hair and skin. Your hair turns brittle, and in some cases, may turn your hair a greenish tint. That’s what people commonly call “swimmer’s hair“, or “chlorine hair”. After being exposed to chlorine, your skin may become dry and itchy–especially for people who have sensitive skin.

Have you noticed that no matter how hard you try to wash it off, the chlorine just seems to stick to you?

Swimmer’s Soap is Different

Normal soaps remove grease and dirt (not chlorine). If you think about it, after swimming for only a few minutes, you are very clean. Chlorine is an extremely effective sterilizer. Swim around in it for a while, and I guarantee you’re about as clean as you can get. The one thing you need to get off after swimming is the pool water and the chlorine that has formed a tight bond with your hair and body.

Because normal soap is made to remove dirt and grease, it’s not the best thing to use after swimming. What’s more, if it’s a strong soap, it will likely compound the skin- and hair-drying problems created by chlorine. It’s the formulation of the soap that matters.

Soap for Swimmers is Made to Remove Chlorine

Swimmer’s soap should be made to remove chlorine. Our bar soaps all contain an effective chlorine-reducing agent that gently and effectively releases the chlorine bond.

Our soaps are also very mild and emollient which means they are soft and gentle. Soaps don’t moisturize like lotion, but our soaps are about as moisturizing as you can get, as far as soaps go.

Key features to look for when buying soap for swimmers:

  1. It should be specially formulated for swimmers and contain chlorine-reducing agents.
  2. The soap should be emollient and moisturizing.
  3. A good soap for swimmers should be mild.
  4. And lastly it should be made from natural products if possible.

If it’s removing chlorine that you want after swimming then make sure you buy a soap made for swimmers.
