We would never get on our bikes without putting a good quality chamois cream on the pad of our shorts to protect our girlie bits from chafing or pinching. We have found that Nature’s Kiss Chafe-Ease is one of the best around.
Crucially, Nature’s Kiss Chafe-Ease is a thick, smooth body lubricant that does not soak in and disappear like some lighter creams. It is not petroleum based, so it is kinder to your skin and does not damage your kit – definitely a bonus.
Whether you slather it onto your body, apply it to your shorts pad, or both, it washes out easily at the 30 degrees that the washing instructions for most kit recommend.
We consider Chafe-Ease a ride essential as comfort in the saddle area is not to be taken for granted. On longer rides, no matter how cleverly-designed the pad in your shorts, vibrations from the road and movement on the sadle can cause minor irritations, which over a period of time can turn into more serious issues. Off road, higher impact contact with the saddle can cause pinching and bruising. We’ve found that all of this can be eased or avoided with good dollop of Nature’s Kiss Chafe-Ease.
Your saddle and shorts must be right for you to start with, and bike set up will also affect comfort. A wonderful anti-chafing lubricant chamois cream like Chafe Ease, is the final piece in the comfort jigsaw, but one we would never leave home without.
Of course prevention is better than cure, but if you do develop a problem, applying Nature’s Kiss Chafe-Ease even when you are not on the bike will help your body heal.
It is a great moisturiser too. We have been applying it to cracked heels and blisters on our feet and have even heard that it works well on babies with nappy rash.
A really effective anti-chafe cream that’s become an essential part of our preparation for any ride.
Will feel odd the first time you use it, but don’t be put off
