I've been trialing several cheap options for chamois cream lately.
I've tried : Sorbolene Cream, Amolin, Bepanthen (both varieties) and I'm now trialing an even cheaper woolworths branded paw-paw based baby ointment.
My baseline is Morgan Blue solid Chamois Cream. I've also tried the Udderley Smooth in the past.
Summations... Sorbolene is useless, Amolin is ok, bepanthen is a bit better, woolworths paw-paw is even better.
Udderley Smooth is very cheap if purchased with other items from Wiggle
, and is an excellent product.
The Morgan Blue doesn't really stop them from developing but there is significantly less discomfort during and after the ride. For example I did 160km on Sunday and there were no issues with MB applied.
After every single ride I apply Lucas Paw-Paw Ointment directly and that helps alot, but I've pretty much resigned to the fact that for me it's a matter of saddle sore management, not elimination.
