Chamois creme for the most faint of bums
For the most part, the cult of chamois creme is a boy's club. 'Tis a
pity, as the salves are designed to save the bottoms of men and women
alike. To help remedy this disparity, Mad Alchemy has concocted their La Femme Chamois Creme.
It has the same base lube and essential oils as their other creams,
but adds lavender oil and ups the concentrations of tea tree, grapefruit
and peppermint essential oils. Lavender is an age-old antiseptic and
pain-reliever, peppermint is also a pain-reliever and adds a little
cooling. Tea tree oil works the anti-viral and anti-fungal fronts to
help keep infections at bay.
The scent is a little more flowery than Mad Alchemy's
other chamois preparations with notes of citrus, but it will also work
magic for men. Both sexes can dab it, rub it, or slather it on the
sensitive skin or the chamois itself to lubricate and protect that
delicate interface with the saddle.
It's worth noting that all
three Mad Alchemy chamois cream formulations work with the same base
ingredients. As such, they share viscosity, lubricity, and are safe for
both hommes and femmes. They are all veggie-based with high-quality
The Mad Alchemy La Femme Crème comes in a 4 oz (120ml) tub.
