Art of Sport Caters to Athletes’ Skincare Needs

As the sports-beauty market continues to grow, active consumers are seeking products that cater to their physical needs and enhance the workout experience. Rising to the challenge, renowned American athletes Kobe Byrant and Brian Lee have created a unisex bodycare line for fitness enthusiasts.

LA brand Art of Sport aims to help athletes reach peak performance and maintain healthy skin with ingredients that enhance training. For example, the Hair + Body Wash: 2-in-1 contains roseroot, which speeds up muscle recovery and reduces inflammation, while aloe vera and hyaluronic acid hydrate the skin and create a protective barrier.

In addition, the brand harnesses the power of aromatherapy to stimulate a sensorial experience for the user. Each product is available in three scents: Rise, Compete and Challenge. The latter contains notes of sandalwood, basil and fir needle to clear the mind and aid concentration.

The launch feeds into the growing trend for using aromatherapy to activate the brain in different ways – adapting the conventional use of fragrance in the bodycare category while aiming to alter the consumer’s state of mind.
