Chamois cream, and the application of, is something of a taboo subject but our friends at Chamois Butt’r are here to help. You don’t even get many experienced riders talking about it on a daily basis. It’s right up there discussing the brand of toilet paper you use. But as you begin to ramp up the miles, you may find the need to use a chamois cream of some sort. Question is, what the hell are you meant to do with it?
Do you apply it to the pad (which used to be made of chamois leather, hence the name) in your shorts? On your bottom side? Both? What is it, and how does it help? Do you actually need it?
Chamois cream is a skin lubricant designed to reduce friction when riding to help protect against chafing and saddle sores and to generally improve riding comfort. Applying chamois cream is easy. Apply liberally to skin and chamois of the shorts before each ride. It can also be applied to any skin areas that rub together or against clothing. It also works great for runners, hikers and walkers.

Each cream is designed for address chaffing in a slightly different manner and is identified by a different color icon on the front of the tube. Original, Eurostyle, Her’, and Coconut. Each formula is slightly different from the Original. All Chamois Butt’r products contain restorative ingredients to soothe already chafed skin and they never use harsh chemicals like parabens, phthalates, gluten or artificial fragrances.
