Udderly Smooth Chamois Cream
Udderly SMOOth Chamois Cream
A chamois cream with an intriguing back story.
Udderly SMOOth was conceived 30 years ago in Ohio, USA. As you'll guess from the name, Udderly SMOOth is a smooth lubricant originally developed to help safeguard milk cows against udder infections and irritations. Then farm hands reported that routinely using Udderly SMOOth at work cured their previously dry, chapped skin. Udderly SMOOth's reputation as a greaseless, moisturiser / barrier cream grew by word of mouth. Udderly SMOOth has since been used to protect skin and offer relief from sunburn, windburn, shaving rash, nappy rash, paper cuts, eczema and psoriasis.
Then cyclists discovered that Udderly SMOOth was an effective (and comparatively inexpensive) skin lube / chamois cream. Cycling Weekly rated it as their best buy in a chamois cream review a couple of years ago. This encouraged the Udderly SMOOth company to develop a shea butter-rich Chamois Cream that's thicker than Udderly SMOOth Original.
'Chamois cream is seen by many mountain bikers to be unnecessary or even a little strange. Although both of these viewpoints may well be true, a quality chamois cream will allow you to ride for longer periods and in more comfort. Personally I tend to use the brilliant Assos Cream (or 'minty arse lard' as it is affectionately known) on any ride over a couple of hours and swear by it. Indeed the Assos cream seems to be the default choice for most of the endurance biased riders I know. Consequently it was interesting to try out a new contender to the, err, throne.
Udderley SMOOth previously developed creams to protect cows udders during milking, but they now have a range of creams for humans, including hand creams, used by round the world yachtsmen, and this anti-chafing Chamois Cream. It is fresh smelling and non-greasy and didn't stain my shorts (or skin!). It works well for a long time without re-application and certainly increased my comfort on long rides. All very good. On the whole Udderly cream seems to work just as well as the Assos. While it doesn't have the minty tingle that some people like, it does come in a much bigger pot for less money.'
