About

Experts in Riding Comfort!

Chamois Butt’r® was developed in 1988 by physical therapist and cyclist Steve Mathews, in collaboration with pro cyclists, physicians and chemists. Since then, Chamois Butt’r® has continued to evolve and is now available in most US bicycle retailers and is distributed internationally.

Chamois Butt’r® Original, Chamois Butt’r® Eurostyle™ and Chamois Butt’r® Her’® are non-greasy skin lubricants developed to improve riding comfort. Both products prevent the uncomfortable rubbing and chafing many cyclists experience while riding. Chamois Butt’r® products easily wash off skin and out of shorts with soap and water, and are gentle on even the most delicate skin and clothing.

We use only the highest quality ingredients to ensure that our products are easy on your skin. All Chamois Butt’r® products are paraben free, gluten free and contain no artificial colors or fragrances. Chamois Butt’r® products are produced in a state of the art facility, with strict quality assurance, adhering to the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines. No animal testing is used for our products.

We listen attentively to our sponsored teams, riders and customers, and appreciate suggestions.  In fact, rider input has led directly to the development of many new products in our line-up including eurostyle Embrocations, eurostyle Sports Skin Wash, eurostyle Sports Kit Wash and the first ever pH balanced chamois cream for women Her’™ Chamois Butt’r®.
