Why use Secret Stuff instead of other chalk options?
Secret Stuff will naturally cleanse and disinfect your hands, killing bacteria and getting rid of gunk and grime that builds up over the course of your normal day and during activity. This unique cream will deliver chalk deep into the texture of your hands - as soon as you use it, you'll see how well it gets into every nook and cranny.
Some people use Secret Stuff as a total chalk replacement. Others prefer to put it on at the beginning as a base layer, augmenting it with loose chalk or a chalk ball when they need to reapply. Some people like to use Secret Stuff as a mid-session refresher, helping cleanse and reset their hands when they start feeling worn down. Chemically, it doesn't matter - however you choose to use Secret Stuff, you can be sure you're getting the highest quality, cleanest, longest lasting chalk anywhere.
How long will it last?
A single 75mL bottle of Secret Stuff will last about 100 uses.
Does Secret Stuff come in different blends/types/flavors/animals?

I like use this before starting a climb and typically it is sufficient for the whole climb and I'm one of those people that has to chalk up every 4-5 moves other wise.
Best chalk around
I already knew Secret Stuff was the bomber liquid chalk I love...but boom- it's available in convenient single use packets as well!
All the clean grip I love in single doses. And did someone say "stocking stuffer"?!!?
I love it! It keeps my hands sweat free for climbing without making them dry out.
Loose chalk continues to be the best, liquid chalk is ‘interesting’, seems great for the gym, not so much outside.
Awesome base layer of chalk!!
This product is excellent as a base layer before using powdered chalk or on its own.
Bought the singles for my Ninja Warrior students when they compete. Perfect for them!
As a newbie to Vertical and Bouldering this was exactly what I needed to hit the ground running with hand prep. This makes my grip 10x better even with normal cheap chalk given to me by my Gym. Already making a second purchase.
Secret Stuff Singles 10-pack
I don't use this as a primary chalk but it's a great base layer. I live in Ireland, where our weather is generally pretty humid, and secret stuff has become an essential part of my climbing regime for keeping my hands from getting sweaty.
Just what I needed!
I love secret stuff. My hands sweat a lot and having that stuff on helps immensely. Dries out there hands quickly as well as giving them that grip needed to suck to the holds and rock.
First time using liquid chalk. On warm indoor bouldering days I definitely need to add a little bit of regular chalk on more challenging climbs as the liquid chalk is not quite enough to handle sweating. But on nice technical climbs, just a dab on my fingers has done amazing. So glad to be reducing the dust.
This stuff is awesome and creates a nice base layer so that you don’t have to use as much powdered chalk. It’s pretty cool watching it dry and it’s great for both climbing and CrossFit!
Second time I have ordered the four pack with skin file and not received the file
Bought this time in order to get free shipping and so glad I did. I love it!
I purchased secret stuff, unicorn dust and climb skin. Secret stuff works great. Use a bit of the regular chalk in conjunction and works like a dream. Climbskin definitely works great as well. But what was the biggest surprise was a company that goes above and beyond for their customers. I had a small issue with my delivery and the extent that friction labs went to rectify this. Was above and beyond by far. They are a stellar company with an amazing product.
The bottle I ordered was damaged
The Secret Stuff really helps to keep my hands from greasing off my project when I used it in combination with the Bam Bam.
Thanks for the stuff. I like the quality gear.
The stuff gives me the right grip during my kettlebell snatch workouts. Easy on and less mess...
Love the gottilla grip. Having those lumps to crush between your fingers is very satisfying as well as providing great grip.
Have bought several brands and types of chalk. Luv luv luv the secret stuff! You really only need a drop, great coverage and staying power. No need to re chalk even after hard 1 hour workout w weights, bars and KB. Try it!
As someone who has sweaty hands while climbing regular chalk has to be reapplied regularly to keep my hands dry. With the liquid chalk I can use that as a great base coat before applying regular chalk and the result is much longer lasting dryness
Super fast shipping and great service! I've used the Secret Stuff before and it's a life saver if you have exceptionally sweaty hands!
Chalk, brush and stickers - perfect Xmas gift
Used as a base layer for my schweddy hands. This mixed with Gorilla Grip kept the friction on all night long. Definitely helped my chalk consumption!
Just got another order the Unicorn Dust and this stuff never ceases to amaze me. Great chalk for my sweaty mitts. The only stuff I'll use. Can't wait to pair it with the secret stuff for longer boulder problems.
This stuff is everything FL says it is....thank you, FL!!! I'm sticking to the sky!!
This it the best way to keep your skin dry. I use it as a base layer of chalk works perfect! As They say use less do more and that is exactly what happens with this!
I always thought the idea of liquid chalk was weird as hell, but this stuff really helps me out.
First thing I do is use this and dry out my hands. Then i use it again after I touch something greasy in the gym.
On the real, total life saver.
Super cool and sturdy holds a lot of chalk but o can't imagine it getting ripped
I really thank you for shipping items to Japan! Secret stuff is the best choice for hard problems! Many many thanks!
I'll never stop using secret stuff. Most clean, most pure, and most friction. Best chalk out there.
I love this liquid chalk.. I actually got this single as a sample in a larger order. I use the large bottle of it though. It's great as a base layer to get rid of all the crap on your hands from the day. It lasts a while and when it begins to flake off I simply reapply with loose friction labs chalk and I'm good to go for more climbs!
It is a great base layer to send hard
Don't skimp on chalk! Friction Lab chalks are all amazing and once trying them, I never want to go back!
The Secret Stuff is really awesome! I love that I can put it on at the start of a session and barely rechalk. I have noticed that when I climb in the gym, I tend to chalk up more than on rocks, but I assume that has something to do with the texture and designs of the hold. Overall an amazing product and I would highly recommend it.
Keeps your hands dry without drying them out. Also the grip is fantastic. I could get up entire walls in my gym that I really had to work at without stopping to chalk up after putting this stuff on. It's really excellent.
Secret stuff is great gave a me a good base of chalk for my entire session.
I had heard good things about liquid chalk, and friction has a good rep, so I thought I'd start there. I've really enjoyed it. I use their climb skin lotion about 30 minutes before I climb, and then I add the liquid chalk as a base on my tips before chalking up. My chalk lasts longer, and I feel really solid. The combo has kept my skin healthier than it has been, and the holds feel better too. It is a bit expensive, but it takes so little of each to feel good, that it should last me a long time, so I'm happy with the value, and delighted in the performance.
I wouldn't reorder if I wasn't satisfied. Great stuff.
Not even necessary to dip into the chalk bag post application.
I absolutely love friction labs chalk and can't wait to test out that secret stuff!!!! Keep up the great work!!!
Love FL chalk. It's great on those schwarmy days and not so schwarmy days. I love the gorilla chalk and the liquid. Both suit my Rifle climbing needs better than any other brand out there. ONLY CHALK I WILL TOUCH.
This is the best chalk out there in keeping hands dryer for longer. Now in liquid form! Heck yeah.
Pretty good liquid chalk
The Friction Labs chalk, Unicorn Dust works great for when I need to chalk up quickly, and the comparison to other chalk is big. I feel more able to grab holds better and the chalk gives my hands better protection so it doesn't tear easily and feels much better when I'm done climbing.
After using the secret stuff for several days of climbing it is apparent it is better stuff than anything I've tried. It seems to stay on the hands for hours and after a layer of gorilla grip it seems very hard to beat. Definitely worth the money!
Instantly dry, and great coverage. Plus, it makes for a good party trick!
I'd been curious about FL's secret stuff and finally ordered some. I didn't know what to expect when I put it on but it blew me away. My hands went from dirty and sweaty to cleaner and chalked up in a matter of seconds. It's perfect for using as a base layer before going up a route.
Not too drying - works great :)
So I have long been a fan of friction labs chalk. After my subscription had my shelf pretty well stocked with unicorn dust and gorilla grip, I switched over to the secret stuff just to play around. I don't use it consistently throughout my sessions but throw a dab on to start each day. I really think it helps keep my hands seeded throughout my climb and I actually get better use out of my chalk bag as a result. I can stretch 75ml pretty far!
Great stuff! I would definitely buy it again!
This was my first time trying the secret stuff and I loved it. Not only was watching it appear all over my hands after rubbing it in really mesmerizing but I've never had such great chalk coverage on my hands. It was perfect for a fantastic day of climbing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. My hands were sticky and perfect for a day of slab climbing.
It works awesome, I love using this stuff as a base at the beginning of a climb and chalking up as necessary.
I tried bouldering for the first time a few weeks ago. I noticed that within moments of chalking up, my hands were pink again while my friend's stayed all nice and white. He said I must be nervous, but I said I always have trouble with sweaty hands at yoga. So, he sent me on a quest for better chalk. I have been using Secret Stuff and Gorilla grip for bouldering AND yoga class since then and its a total game changer. Magic! I like that when I go to reapply the secret stuff, I can choose to just get it on my palms (for yoga) or fingers (for climbing), in between general chalking.
The new secret stuff is incredible! I train in Central Queensland where it's hot and humid most of the time but starting with a base layer of secret stuff has really helped and allows me to climb for longer sessions before my skin gives out
I ordered the Secret Stuff a week ago and is arrived yesterday just in time for Thursday night climbing. It worked great one application was enough to last over several warm up climbs and I suspect it would have lasted a lot longer if I didn't have to belay in between climbs. Happy to recommend the Secret Stuff.
Exactly what I was looking for from friction labs ☺ stays on as a great base layer, helping me crush in this cold weather outside
Freaking awesome!!! It's like magic in a tube.
Drys fast and stays strong
I suffer from over sweaty hands. I might have been wishing for the ultimate cure when I should have known there is no such thing. Secret stuff didn't blow me away or do anything more special to me than dry or other liquid chalks.
One recommendation I'd strongly make for Friction Lab: create the bottles with a hole, or loop, or some sort of method for which they may be hung and attached to climbing harnesses.
This stuff is legit! Great for when you need to pull hard or stay dry on the proj. Ptssssat! Thanks for the great project.
Secret stuff works great, no need to reapply, cleans up easily. Use it both at the gym and crags!
Love it immediately. A little goes a long way and I'm able to get 3-4 extras burns in compared to just chalk. Then I combined application of the secret stuff followed by application of chalk and it was just heavenly! Great product, packs light. Highly recommend.
The secret stuff is so far the best liquid chalk I have tried. Without liquid chalk my palms sweat buckets to the point of actually making holds wet at times. With the secret stuff it does not overly dry my hands out with isopropyl alcohol like some other kinds, but it feels much more like chalk that lasts a long time
I recently got into climbing with my kids. Our first trip out to the local gym I realized quickly that our hands became sweaty fast. I began doing a search for chalk specifically used for climbing. It wasn't long before my search turned up Friction Labs. I watched the short video of what happens when you apply the Secret Stuff. I ordered one tube of Secret Stuff, the unicorn dust chalk, and the gorilla grip chalk. It couldn't believe how much of a difference the chalk or Secret Stuff made, but it was undeniable. We can climb for hours with no need to reapply the liquid chalk. Thank you for making this awesome product. I will defiantly be ordering more in the near future.
This stuff is awsome!! Totally worth it. I also really love this stuff for hang board because you don't need to chalk up as much and you also don't ever get to much chalk which can be a prob during hang board. Get some!!!
This stuff is great. My hands sweat a lot while I climb, especially in the gym so I started using liquid chalk as a base. The secret stuff is much better than any other I've tried. It takes much much less to get a good base, it holds up well to indoor bouldering (which is where I use it most) so that I I really only feel the need to reapply once in a 2+ hour session and sometimes not even that much. My skin stays dry and that makes my regular chalk do its job that much better. Love this stuff and I will continue to use it.
I got hooked on Secret Stuff when I started using it for hangboard repeaters and found that I didn't need to chalk up again between reps! This stuff is amazing for training and climbing outside!
I used this for the first time last night on some pretty rough holds. I usually can only handle a few hours then my skin is peeling.. But the secret stuff really made a huge difference. Paired with Unicorn dust, the perfect combination. Use less loose chalk, and take care of those fingers!
I love this stuff. It cleans my hands and then dries this amazing layer of chalk into each little pore and wrinkle. I primarily use it in the gym and one coating lasts many climbs. I usually apply a layer at the beginning of my session and then use the Magic Ball for the duration (btw, currently I refilled my Magic Ball with Unicorn Dust and it works awesomely). Highly recommended.
