Currently in use by the World Surf League to treat athletes, BLDG Active's Active Skin Repair products offer scientifically advanced all-natural technology that work to disinfect and promote healing of skin irritations and wounds. Surfers constantly battle reef cuts, wetsuit rash, sunburns and bug bites; instead of bulky toxic first aid products, surfers like Hobgood now have a simple 3oz natural solution. Active Skin Repair's clinically proven regenerative technology kills 99.9% of bacteria, without harsh chemicals or antibiotics and helps reduce inflammation and speed the body’s natural recovery process.

"We're excited to have Damien join our team," said, Justin Gardner, co-founder and CEO of BLDG Active. "As a world renowned surfer and father, Damien is a leader both locally and in the global surf community. After years of watching surfers' minor nics and cuts turn into serious infections, Damien has an understanding of the importance of skin repair for anyone spending time in open water," he added.

Hobgood, having spent most of his life on the water, is one of the most versatile surfers in the world, with 12 years on the elite tour competing around the world. Now, residing in San Diego, California, Hobgood still spends much of his time surfing, often with his daughter in tow. Sharing his passion for waves and staying safe on the water with his children and others has become a priority.

"As a surfer, getting torn up on rocks and reef, dealing with sunburns and fighting infection from the water are daily issues," Hobgood, said. "Active Skin Repair allows me to disinfect and start the healing process right out of the water — it's as much a part of my routine as applying sunscreen," he added.
