Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do topical products work?
A: Your skin is the largest organ of your body, designed to protect against external harms, regulate body heat, and manage nutrient levels and water loss. It’s composed of 3 layers:
- The epidermis, the outermost layer, provides a waterproof barrier and creates our skin tone.
- The dermis, beneath the epidermis, contains tough connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
- The deeper subcutaneous tissue (hypodermis) is made of fat and connective tissue.
For a topical product to work it not only has to penetrate the skin but get absorbed too.
Skin Penetration represents the amount of a topically applied ingredient that exists between the top layer and bottom layer of your skin, during penetration the body does not yet absorb the ingredient, and it cannot affect the body systems.
Skin Absorption occurs when the topically applied ingredient penetrates the skin barrier.
The active ingredients in SteelFit® products are permeable, meaning they both penetrate and are absorbed by skin cells where they are processed and circulated.
That heat and tingle when you apply the products is actually the active ingredients increasing energy to the topical area, allowing the ingredients to absorb more efficiently and also sending signals to that area, hence spot reduction.
Q: What is the difference between SteelFit® Topical Products and Competitors?
A: All of our topical products contain clinically proven ingredients to substantiate our claims. Unlike competitors that spike their products with ineffective “buzz word” ingredients for marketing purposes, we stand behind our ingredients, formulas and scientific data thats guarantees results.
Other competitors’ products simply “burn” your skin to trick your mind into thinking it is working; however, when you analyze their formulas they are missing key fat burning and skin tightening/toning ingredients.
Simply sweating won’t help burn fat, you will lose temporary water weight, but once you eat or drink it comes right back. When used in combination with proper diet and exercise SteelFit® topicals will help you lose fat for good.
Our products are non-greasy and non-oil based so they won’t stain your (sometimes expensive) workout clothes like other products on the market.
We are so confident in our products that we offer a 60 day, 100% Money Back Guarantee.
Q: Why abs of Steel?
A: Abs of Steel’s main active ingredient CoAxel is a fast acting fat burner that combines three active substances, L-Carnitine, Caffeine, and Coenzyme A that work to eliminate fat fast.
Coenzyme A and L-Carnitine induce a “one-way fatty acid pump” to release fat cells while caffeine, a lipolysis promoting agent, breaks down fat and other lipids. In a study where people applied 5% CoAxel twice daily for 28 days 50% more subcutaneous fat was released and hypodermis thickness decreased 8.2%.
Abs of Steel’s knockout punch comes from an ancient Chinese Medicinal Herb to activate fat burning through G-Proteins which tightens skin and reduces subcutaneous fat. Glycerol, a carb used to store fatty acids in the body is released by up to 265% using this technology!
Unlike thermogenic supplements that increase your body temperature and heart rate, alter your sleep cycles and give you other unwanted and unhealthy side effects, Abs of Steel® attacks the fat through the skin so there are no side effects other than temporary heat and redness. Your body will not build tolerance or adapt to Abs of Steel® so you do not have to cycle it. Abs of Steel® is 100% safe and we suggest using it in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet to achieve maximum results.
Q: Why Buns of Steel?
A: Women hold and store more fat due to hormonal changes and in anticipation of pregnancy, with that excess fat being stored mostly around the glutes, hips and thighs. Women have less fat burning receptors, called beta-receptors, in this area making it the hardest to burn off! If that wasn’t enough of a hill to climb, after eating women have higher fat storage then men!
Buns of Steel’s main active Ingredient Intenslim fights this fat accumulation while soothing the inflammatory reaction generated by an unhealthy diet! In a study where women applied 4% Intenslim twice daily for 2 months the women significantly decreased fat thickness by 24%, with circumference and volume by up to 2.77 cm, that’s a Dress Size! Intenslim also helps skin tissues regenerate and detoxifies skin by eliminated damaged proteins, other accumulated wastes, and dead skins cells to reveal younger, healthier looking skin. Buns of Steel attacks the fat through the skin so there are no side effects other than temporary heat and redness.
Buns of Steel® utilizes an ancient Chinese Medicinal Herb to activate fat burning through G-Proteins which slims the silhouette, reduces cellulite, and improves firmness. Glycerol, a carb used to store fatty acids in the body is released by up to 265% using this technology!
Buns of Steel® also contains Regestril that prevents and rubs away stretch marks by slowing down the degradation and by promoting the regeneration of cells, reducing their depth by up to 72% in 2 months while also fading them and making the skin smoother.
Q: Why Guns of Steel?
A: Guns of Steel® is a revolutionary topical liquid whose main active ingredients give you an Outrageous Mind Blowing Pump while increasing endurance and vascularity during training, while speeding up recovery after.
Nitric Oxide is the cell-signaling molecule that helps in regulating blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output and muscle growth. An increase in Nitric Oxide leads to an increase in blood flow, allowing more nutrients and oxygen to be delivered to the muscle tissues. More nutrients delivered to the muscles reduces fatigue during training and leads to quicker recovery time and quicker muscle growth after training.
Guns of Steel’s main active ingredient Dithiolane-3-Pentanoic Acid (D3PA) is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates skin cells to produce nitric oxide by dilating capillaries.
L-Citrulline further helps boost Nitric Oxide levels and plays a role in the removal of ammonia, a compound known to cause exercise-related fatigue, from your blood. Citrulline’s proven ability to increase blood arginine levels has the potential to enact a wide of benefits, including elevated protein synthesis, creatine synthesis, and more efficient BCAA utilization by muscles during exercise. Citrulline also has the potential to help the body aid in recovery and reduce muscle soreness due to intense training.
Numerous studies have shown that excess Citrulline increases the amount of Arginine in the blood, leading to an increase of Nitric Oxide Production. Arginine has amazing nitrogen retention abilities and is believed to be crucial for muscle growth as well as its ability to participate in protein synthesis.
Q: Do they really work?
A: Yes! Both our Abs of Steel® and Buns of Steel® were scientifically formulated using clinically proven ingredients. We are the only company in the Supplement Industry who has the rights to use CoAxel™ and Intenslim™, both patented ingredients with scientific studies behind them.
Feedback on our products is phenomenal with 1000+ verified reviews and customers contacting us via social media and e-mail stating how satisfied they are and how they can see and feel results in as little as two weeks.
Q: When do I apply them?
A: Abs of Steel® and Buns of Steel® were formulated to be used twice daily. We recommend applying your first application 15 minutes before training or doing cardio, and applying your second application at night before you go to sleep.
Competitors of ours have claimed that topically applying caffeine has the same effect as drinking a cup of coffee, but we are here to tell you the truth and that statement is completely FALSE. Topical application of caffeine will create energy in your cells, but will not give you a wired feeling as if you took it orally whether it be a pill, powder or drink. You can apply both products at night without worrying about it keeping you up.
Guns of Steel® is meant to be applied 15 minutes before training your desired body part.
Q: What is the difference between Abs of Steel and Buns of Steel?
A: Great question! While both are topical thermogenics, the active ingredients in each give them unique skin fitness properties. Abs of Steel’s patented active ingredient CoAxel™ not only eliminates stubborn fat, tightens and thins your skin, and also acts a diuretic.
Buns of Steel’s patented active ingredient Intenslim™ helps to eliminate stretch marks and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Q: What makes my skin turn red? Am I having an allergic reaction?
A: Skin redness and slight heat is 100% normal and safe with all our topical products. Methyl Nicotinate is a nicotinic acid methyl ester, used in our topical products to create a temporary redness or inflammation. Benzyl Nicotinate is another ingredient that increases blood flow to the applied surface area, resulting in redness and sometimes a slight heat and/or tingling sensation.
As mentioned above, these two ingredients are safe and the side effects normal. While we have not had any true allergic reactions to our products, if you experience any symptoms other than heat and/or redness such as shortness of breath, please contact a medical professional to further assist you.
