Quite simply, VeloSkin’s chamois cream is our ‘hero’ product.
Why? We are confident that it is the best out there for protecting that part of your body that is so vital for sustained, enjoyable riding.
Chamois cream forms a protective buffer between you and the saddle. Friction is one of cyclist’s worst enemies, more so than the longest ride or the highest climb and can cause saddle sores and discomfort. At VeloSkin, we are firmly of the opinion that prevention is better than cure, which is why our chamois cream offers a vital line of defence.
VeloSkin’s patented formula is packed with vitamins, minerals and amino acids, as well natural ingredients to soothe, smooth and keep harmful bacteria at bay. We also use calming shea and cocoa butters to absorb quickly without leaving a sticky residue. And like all products in the VeloSkin range, our signature orange blossom and bergamot scent means you’ll smell as great as you feel.
Learn to love the saddle, not resent it, with VeloSkin’s innovative chamois cream.

Website How to Use
Where, and how, to apply your chamois cream is a topic most cyclists don't discuss. For some reason it's a bit of a taboo - so let us help you out with some tips from the experts.
With VeloSkin, one good three fingered scoop is all you need to keep you going for a full day in the saddle. Once you've got that bit sorted (pretty easy really) it's up to you where you apply it. Some cyclists prefer it on their chamois pad in their shorts, whereas others apply it directly to their skin.
Top tip from us - go for both! That way you're less likely to miss anywhere and you're guaranteed a comfortable ride.
When applying it to your shorts, start at the seams of your chamois pad as this is the area more likely to cause you irritation. From here, work your way in towards the centre of your chamois pad using a circular motion, as this way you're much more likely to work the cream into all the creases and nooks and crannies that are created when you've got the sorts on.
When applying it to your skin, pretty much the same applies. Focus on the 'nooks and crannies' and the areas where you're likely to get skin on skin contact, or skin on pad contact. We'll leave it at that for now :)
