Amidst the vast selection of chamois cream on the market these days, we were interested in why a bike cleaning and lubrication company would throw their hat into the ring. Then again, if a company has vast experience in bio friendly products, lubrication, and protection, maybe it is well suited to crack the code for a high quality and effective chamois cream. Certainly Muc-Off believes this, as they have proclaimed "we believe we’ve created the best cream out there." And while skin care products have a highly subjective and wide ranging "best", early feedback indicates that Muc-Off is on to something. Well, we'll let Muc-Off tell their own story:
"Saddle sores? It happens to the best of us. Chafing? That's part of being an athlete who trains 24/7/365 in all conditions. Unhappy with the existing choices, in 2015 we decided it was time to put our 25 years of experience of cycling into developing the ultimate, high performance Chamois Cream. With the help of our pro teams and athletes, we looked at every possible way to improve rider experience. The result? A specially formulated cream to deeply moisturize your skin for total riding comfort and protection, over long distances, in all conditions.
"We believe we’ve created the best cream out there. Deliberately excluding nasty parabens and toxins, we have made sure our Chamois Cream is infused with essential pro-vitamin moisturizers to help create that long-lasting hydrated feeling on your skin. Our luxury formula uses natural ingredients – including aloe vera, witch hazel, shea butter and sunflower oil – to creates a mild cooling effect for total riding comfort. Designed to form a protective barrier to help prevent skin damage on sensitive areas and ideal for all riding styles from hard fought classics through to long sportives, whether on the road or on a trail! Created first and foremost for cyclists, our formula is also an essential companion for triathletes, runners and endurance athletes of all disciplines who want to minimize chafing."
