Bristol Butt'r is a thick antiseptic ointment, to help prevent chafing and sores when doing sports. Known as 'chamois cream' in cycling, Bristol Butt'r was developed by John Whittington in pursuit of the perfect chamois cream. The result is a hand crafted, no expense spared chamois butter; thick and long lasting with high levels of active ingredient. Whilst chasing the cyclist dream himself, John decided others could benefit from the butter too, going into production and handmaking it between training rides!
Many chamois creams are based around moisturisers, which absorb too quickly leaving the area unprotected and inviting bacteria. Bristol Butt'r is tailored to the task with ingredients like bees wax that create the perfect barrier. The name comes from the fact John is from Bristol, a city its vibrant cycling culture, plus it has a good ring to it! Say it like a Bristolian for true effect.
Chamois cream is something you may not have realised you need; given the application area and remedy, it doesn't come up in conversation with new cyclists or is simply overlooked. I'm sure you will have experienced soreness after a long ride or even 'saddle sores', something Bristol Butt'r aims to alleviate. Give Bristol Butt'r a go in your day to day riding and I'm sure you'll be surprised how much more comfortable your shorts become, with the right interface between body and clothing.
Bristol Butt'r is a thick ointment - made from bees wax and natural vegetable fats - and is enhanced with three essential oils:
Tight fitting clothing, compressed against the skin whilst on the saddle with sweat building up invites bacteria and sores to grow. Tea Tree Oil has long been known as a natural antiseptic and is still one of the best out there. It helps to kill the bacteria that can ruin the next day's riding.
Cyclists and cafes are synonymous but nobody likes the smell of a sweaty lycra clad crowd. Lavender brings a scent of class to the cream in an attempt to help mask any odours of sweat, allowing you to pass other riders with a waft of lovelyness
The Peppermint brings a nice cooling sensation as you put it on but isn't so strong as to cause any discomfort. As the cream sandwich that is you, Bristol Butt'r and your shorts come together, the Peppermint soothes and refreshes.
