On long rides, it is important to not only to wear a good pair of shorts but also to apply a cream to reduce friction between your skin and your clothing to prevent chafing. While many cyclists use the phrase "saddle sore" to relate to any tender or chafed skin, a true saddle sore is a bacterial infection of a hair follicle (usually) aggravated by cycling and wearing shorts that don't breathe. A rupture can cause infection and prevent you from cycling for weeks.
Munny’s Park Rash Chamois Cream helps to enhance your comfort during long bike rides by preventing saddle soreness. It keeps your delicate skin protected and helps to repair any damage that may have occurred during a ride. Unlike some commercial creams which contains ingredients such as Ethylene Glycol, Monostearate, Stearic Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Mineral Oil and Petroleum, Park Rash contains only natural ingredients.
The following ingredients have been chosen for their soothing, moisturising and healing properties: Coconut Oil, Sesame Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and Tea Tree Oil.
Shea Butter is useful in moisturising, softening, healing and protecting your skin.
Beeswax provides protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties making it helpful in treating skin irritation.
Coconut Oil is naturally moisturising and acts as a powerful anti-bacterial.
Sesame Oil is a powerful antioxidant with antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Almond Oil is rich in Vitamin E and Zinc and has been known to heal and nourish the skin and soothe it from irritation and inflammation.
Tea Tree Oil is known for its antiseptic, anti-fungal and infection-reducing properties.
Feedback from customers:
'As a protective and healing balm it also is fantastic on healing wounds such as the dry scabs from road rash on skin, I had a fall off the bike and this has worked wonders helping my skin recover, can't recommend highly enough' - Fiona Makin
'I had a bit of a saddle sore before I used this product. I found it has a healing property because after using it on my chamois and myself my sore is gone. That's while riding 40-50 miles during training. Because it’s chemical free, I'm not afraid to put it on sensitive areas. I also just put in on the sore after a shower and repeated until it was gone. Can't wait for more of this stuff to arrive!' – Nancy Prohaska
