Our Story

   I´ve been a surfer for about 20 years, and through that time i´ve experienced some nasty episodes of chafing and rash caused by wetsuit friction.

By that time, the only way of mitigate such harm was to put some vaseline to avoid friction.

Vaseline is a derived product of petroleum and, aside beeing bad for the wetsuits, skin and of course the ocean, its not a sustainable way to use the earth resources.


   Searching for a product that, beside protecting my skin, would not damage the environment revealed to be a useless and pointless exercise. There was none!

So,the idea remained forgot in deep sea oblivion for quite a time, and, as i came back to surfing after a few years of complete stopping, it "popped" again.

   Now the concerns were a bit different, and alongside with all the aspects idealised back in the good ol´days, one more was of great concern... environmental consciousness.

   This was the perfect time to go on a quest to find a formula that protected my skin and were somehow innocuous to environment and oceans by using only natural, green components.- VEGAN

The next BIg step...

   So... I plundged into the world of ingredients, vegetal oils and waxes, formulas, tests and combinations and ended up with a product that i could really use. Threw the Vaseline jars away and started using this new "sweet precious thing". Then I thought, what if my "local friends" could use it too? What if other "local friends" from around the world want it too? Why not put this cream on everybody hands? 

After that, i started to use Tubular Monkey in almost all my activities. I use it when i ride my bike, when i just go to the beach, when i play tennis, when i go hiking in the mountains... you name it.

This little aluminium can now goes everywhere with me!
