WHAT IS "GRRRIP" and HOW DOES IT WORK?

It is a scientifically formulated and patented material originally developed to enhance the gripping ability of athletes in all sports where a clean and dry grip provides a competitive advantage. When applied as directed, the fluid quickly evaporates and millions of sub-micron silica particles are deposited on the skin that then combine with the natural oils of the skin to form a barrier against moisture, cold, grease, oil and grime. It performs much like having a very fine grade of sandpaper on the hands to increase friction, thereby strengthening the grip without affecting dexterity.

IS IT SAFE AND DOES IT NEED FDA APPROVAL?

It is completely safe when used as directed. It is non-toxic, totally inert and washes off easily with just soap and water. It has been extensively laboratory and field tested in accordance with FDA Toxicity Test Protocols and results show it to be totally safe. It does not need FDA approval for sports or other applications because it is not ingested and does not alter any of the body's functions. The carrier fluid is flammable but evaporates very quickly once it is applied as directed. It does not prevent sweating and it does not block all of the skin pores so the skin can continue to breathe, but it does cause perspiration or ambient humidity to bead like water on a well waxed automobile. Once beaded, it is easily repelled. Health Data Reports and Material Safety Data Sheets are available upon request.

HOW IS GRRRIP APPLIED AND HOW OFTEN? WHAT IS THE PROPER AMOUNT?

Hold the Pump Spray approximately four (4) to six (6) inches from the hand and spray a liberal amount onto each hand. The GRRRIP Lotion should be applied like any other lotions, it remains more effective the longer it remains on the hands. The proper amount of GRRRIP has been applied when a small amount of water is added to a cupped hand and does not penetrate to the skin, but beads and rolls off.

ARE THERE SPECIAL TIPS OR INSTRUCTIONS WHEN USING GRRRIP?

VERY IMPORTANT! Always shake the bottle vigorously before each application to make sure the silica particles are in suspension and not settled to the bottom of the bottle or can. This will also provide an even and dense coating of particles. Do not wash, wipe or clean your hands before applying GRRRIP because the more natural oils left on the skin the better the bonding between the silica particles and the skin. Do not apply lotions or other preparations to the hands prior to applying GRRRIP because they could interfere with its moisture repelling properties.

GRRRIP can be applied to either the hands or gloves. If applied to the hands under the gloves it is recommended that the entire hand be treated to assure a dryer glove. For all racquet sports and certain action sports, it is recommended that GRRRIP be applied to the wrists as well as the hands to form a moisture barrier against the perspiration that is running down the arms and cause it to dissipate before it reaches the hand/glove.

During the drying or evaporation phase, a white residue composed of loose silica particles will appear. This is normal and the whiteness will eventually disappear but the grip enhancement and moisture repelling properties remain. GRRRIP can easily be brushed off clothing.
