No. Our natural chamois cream washes out with warm water and soap!
Both P120 and V120 are high-performance anti-chafe barrier creams.Our different formulations recognize that men and women have different anti-chafing needs.V120 is scientifically formulated and pH balanced for women. There is no “sting” or the slightly disconcerting “tingling” that comes from the menthol featured in some men’s creams. We bumped up levels of our carefully sourced German alpine chamomile and added luxurious bergamot extract for anti-inflammatory, calming and anti-bacterial benefits. An extra dose of our cooling cucumber extract was added to help with pH balancing. P120 is scientifically formulated for men. We added organic ginkgo biloba and our carefully sourced German alpine chamomile for their soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. A boost of organic tea tree oil adds a powerful natural anti-fungicide and helps treat skin irritations. Cucumber extract is added for its cooling attributes.
The only animals we test our products on are humans!
The one20percent team is our first line of testing. We ride our bikes, run and hike thousands of kilometres (really!), to make sure our products are ready to share with our select group of willing testers who help us with unbiased feedback. We are working with all our vendors, ensuring suppliers support cruelty free processes and development of our ingredients.
All of our products are formulated, developed and tested right here in the Sea to Sky Corridor in British Columbia Canada. Our production is made locally in a state of the art zero emissions facility.
We carefully considered the properties required for a high quality natural chamois cream suitable for training and racing.
Working together with our team chemist we researched the best natural ingredients that would support an effective, long lasting chamois cream that was petroleum and petroleum derivative free. We then conducted a global search for the best of those ingredients!
The moisture barrier created by using petroleum based ingredients is not breathable and can trap bacteria and fungus on the skin allowing it to flourish.Using petroleum based anti-chafe creams is a bit like eating junk food when you are hungry. It gets the job done in the short term, but over time creates other issues, including the build up of bacteria which can cause irritation, inflammation and saddle sores. Petrolatum that is not refined or has been through a low grade refinement process is considered a carcinogenic – something you don’t want to be using on your body!
