SKINS was started in 1996 by an aspiring Australian. He had a sports science background and a simple, bold ambition; to do all the physical stuff he could ten years ago - and still feel bullet-proof. He started with the knowledge that increased blood circulation helps the body perform better. By wrapping his muscles in a 2nd 'skin', he could accelerate blood flow and increase oxygen delivery to working muscles, improving power, speed, stamina and recovery. It took 5 years to invent and refine the very first pair of SKINS tights. It wasn't long before athletes all over the world swore by them. Today, SKINS are sought-after by discerning sports people in more than 30 countries. The benefits have been highlighted by endless independent research. SKINS are also recommended and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association and the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.
