Certainly the best named chamois cream for cyclists on the Australian market has to be Aussie Butt Cream. It’s not just the name, as this chamois cream also packs some all-natural saddle sore fighting substance. So here’s the rub.
Launched in 2009 and trialed by Ironman athletes, road racers and endurance riders, Aussie Butt Cream is an all-natural, anti-friction, anti-chaffing chamois cream. It contains no parabens, no petroleum jelly, and no witch hazel.
Instead, the chamois cream relies on lanolin, beeswax and cocoa butter for the anti-friction qualities, while Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is used to prevent bacterial and fungal infections. Besides its antiseptic properties, Tea Tree Oil provides aromatic qualities to the chamois cream. The all-natural ingredients also ensure the chamois cream washes out of clothing more readily.
Proudly made in Australia, Aussie Butt Cream is active across the Australian cycling community, sponsoring Cycling Australia’s Jayco-AIS road racing and track teams, Drapac Professional Cycling, and others.
The all-natural chamois cream comes in a 100ml tube for A$15.95 or 250g jar for A$29.95, and is available at numerous specialty cycling shops across the country.
