ARE FCTR® PRODUCTS SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE?

We always develop FCTR products for the needs of elite adult athletes. FCTR products are also suitable for casual adult athletes and those who are tired or sore after training. 


We generally do not recommend our products for people sensitive to any of the ingredients they contain, people under the age of 18 or women who are pregnant or nursing. Please read the advice on the product label before purchasing or using any FCTR product. 

WHY ARE FCTR® WARM GEL AND COOL GEL A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER RECOVERY PRODUCTS?

FCTR Warm Gel and FCTR Cool Gel do not contain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are associated with health risks

WHY ARE FCTR® WARM GEL AND COOL GEL A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO OTHER CBD PRODUCTS?

FCTR Warm Gel and Cool Gel: 


- Are made in Japan to high standards of formulation and manufacturing with globally compliant CBD (Japan has the strictest requirements for CBD in the world). 


- Are designed to be topically applied with no need for oral ingestion (oral CBD products can be associated with stomach upsets or related digestive issues). 

- Use a proprietary gel medium so all ingredients are rapidly absorbed by the skin, leaving no residue (most other topical CBD products are in a cream or lotion base, which means the products are absorbed very slowly and can result in greasy residue on your hands or other parts of the body). 

- Contain other beneficial ingredients.

HOW TO USE FCTR®

WHEN SHOULD I USE FCTR® WARM GEL OR FCTR COOL GEL? 

You can use FCTR Warm Gel or Cool Gel at any time after exercising. Even though some people associate the feeling of Warm Gel with the warm up phase of exercise, studies show that recovery products and techniques give the best results when used after exercise. 

WHICH IS BETTER FOR ME: FCTR® WARM GEL OR FCTR® COOL GEL?

You should choose the product that feels more suitable for you depending on the time of day, year, or how your body is responding to training. Both products contain 300mg of pure CBD in a rapidly absorbed gel medium.

CAN I USE FCTR® WARM GEL OR FCTR COOL GEL FOR MASSAGE? 

All FCTR gel products can be used in massage with one important consideration: the gels are designed to be absorbed rapidly by the skin. Products for use in extended massages are usually less absorbent.
