July 24, 2013. Chicago, IL. Whether it’s for identification, inspiration, or self-expression, body marking in sporting events is in vogue. Take Your Mark Sports LLC, a manufacturer of body marking products for athletes, now offers SportSafe brand skin markers in multiple colors for triathlons, obstacle races, swim meets, and other sports events. Unlike permanent markers and art markers, which can contain toxic chemicals and are difficult to remove, SportSafe markers use ink made with FDA compliant cosmetic ingredients that is safe for skin use. The ink is waterproof, sweat proof, and is easily removed after the event. The markers are available in high visibility black ink, high contrast red ink for mud races, blue, green and now in white ink for darker skin tones.
As many as 40% of competitors body mark themselves before endurance events. SportSafe ink skin markers offer them a skin safe solution to waiting in long body marking lines and each marker can last an entire season or more. For race directors, each marker contains enough ink to mark multiple competitors at an event and they are relieved of any liability issues associated with skin or vapor exposure to toxic chemicals by marking staff.
SportSafe ink body markers will be introduced at the upcoming Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City July 31-August 3 (booth PV486) and can be found in an increasing number of sports retailers or online at www.sportsafemarkers.com.Whatever Your Sport, Make Your Mark!
