If there ever was a downside to cycling, it is saddle sores and chafing. For some, it’s a constant battle and endless parade of new products to keep them on the bike. Creams, lubes and butters are sloppy, and can stain clothing. Even worse, fragrances and dyes often irritate the skin and petroleum-based products are well known for clogging pores and creating in-grown hairs—pure misery. It’s an ongoing battle, and this is why we had to share our new find: Crotch Guard.
Our tester was in love with the product from the first application, “Applied directly to the skin, this oil felt silky and clean, and most of it absorbed quickly. I was skeptical that it would help at all, to be honest. I’m used to creams and butters that may be goopy, but you can tell it’s there. The Crotch Guard made it through a four hour ride without need for re-application. I was blown away—it’s worth every penny to me!”
The science behind Crotch Guard is simple, instead of creating a lubed barrier between the skin and irritation, “Crotch Guard skin care oil strengthens the skin at the cellular level to eliminate friction, chafing and rash…Once absorbed, Crotch Guard will surround skin cells to strengthen and support the cellular membrane.”
On the science, our tester added, “I have no idea if the science behind it is sound, I’m not really qualified to make that call. All I care is that it works—and the Crotch Guard works really well. I’m hooked.”
While it may seem a bit on the pricey side, one 4oz. bottle should last you months, and anything that leaves riders friction-free is well worth the money!
