Welcome. Understanding how to use chamois cream is important for your comfort on the bike. .
Chamois Cream Choice
The Chamois Cream you choose will depend on the amount of time you spend on the bike. If you are likely to spend 4 hours or more on the bike then 4 plus hour cream is the choice for you or if less than this then the less than 4 hour cream will suit you well.
Putting your Chamois Cream on Correctly
Natural Chamois Cream is used to lubricate, soothe or repair skin damage. It can be applied in two different ways
Directly onto the skin at points of contact with the seat or onto any areas suffering from irritation
Directly onto the padding (chamois) pants at points that contact the seat or over areas of skin that is suffering from irritation
For more information on why you would need to use a Natural Chamois Cream go to our story When Should You Use Chamois Cream.
Where you apply your cream is a bit of a personnel choice. If you haven’t used chamois cream before try out both methods to see which you prefer.
Some people do not like the feeling of cream directly on their skin because it works as a barrier and does not absorb quickly. Alternatively others do not like the feeling of putting on padded pants with cold, damp patches.
