2020 WOWSA Awards[edit]

Ocean Grease by Edward Beck of Australia was nominated for the 2020 WOWSA Awards in the World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year category with the following nomination: Marathon swimmers, channel swimmers, triathletes, ice swimmers and others have long used various kinds of grease and lubricants to prevent chafing on swims of all kinds and reduce the uncomfortable rubbing of skin-on-skin and swimsuit-on-skin. Years ago, anhydrous lanolin was readily available in pharmacies and other retail locations, but no longer. Edward Beck, a pharmacist, recognized the growing need and developed Ocean Grease, a range of anti-chafing lubricants made from a combination of anhydrous lanolin (wool fat) and petroleum jelly. For simplifying the pre-race preparations by open water swimmers of all ages by supplying a wide range of anti-chafing lubricants in various mixes to meet the needs of every swimmer, for making Ocean Grease available for easy online purchase, in small enough and competitively priced quantities in user-friendly packaging, and for understanding the vacuum in the market of growing channel and marathon swimmers, Ocean Grease by Edward Beck is a worthy nominee for the 2020 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
