Founded in the pool

For decades, swimmers have faced a worrisome situation; frequent exposure to chlorine, salt water, and UV can leave their skin dry and sun-damaged. Sadly, with few remedies, skincare concerns have become the most common reasons people quit swimming. But that's all about to change thanks to Dermasport!

Dermasport's founders, Dr. Christopher Schmidt and Karen Allard, recognized that healthy skin is essential to unlocking the full mental and physical benefits of swimming. They teamed up to make healthy skin the new norm for swimmers and spent years developing the Dermasport System.

The result, a breakthrough daily skincare system that protects and nourishes your skin both in and out of the water. Dermasport is more than just good skincare. It's peace of mind, so you can swim beautifully for a lifetime.

“The effects of UV are cumulative, so it's never too late to start taking better care of your skin.”

An avid waterman and dermatologist, Dr. Schmidt has removed hundreds of skin cancers and precancerous lesions from longtime swimmers who did not know how to protect their skin with proper preventative measures.
