Tastex is the company’s special range of skin care products that are designed to offer various skin sensations. Tastex Cool-Ex is a temperature regulator with special blends of plant extracts that are said to react to the temperature of the wearer’s skin and regulate it effectively. It absorbs the body sweat and gives a cool sensation to your body, the company reports.

“Equipment and physique are equally important to fulfil such an intensive challenge. The special cooling finish definitely helped me to regulate my body temperature more, save energy and gave me that extra boost to carry on,” said Robert Lindhout, initiator and Global IT Manager from Tanatex Chemicals.

Supporting sport related initiatives

According to CEO Marco de Koning, who participated in this event for the first time, the company aims to stimulate health and sport related initiatives by sponsoring such events. “It does not only lead to healthier employees which lowers costs of sickness absence, but these events boost team building, stimulates cooperation and friendships,” he said.

Jan Jansen Classic is a cycling tour with distances varying from 75 to 225 km, with more than 5,000 participants taking part in this edition. The route took the cyclist around the Utrechtse Heuvelrug and the Veluwe. The company’s colleagues cycled 75 km and 125 km and all managed to finish within a reasonable timeframe.
