In the beginning of research and development for our newest product, Squirrel’s Saddle Butter, SNB bike packing ambassador, Justin Dubois, began adding tea tree oil to the original SNB blend. This got us thinking about a different blend of ingredients for this balm tailored to bikers. SSB is made up with much the same ingredients as SNB, sans the beeswax to keep it Vegan.
But if you’re a cyclist you know, sometimes your bums need a lil’ something extra. Enter peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and Zinc Oxide. Peppermint and tea tree oil not only contain natural germ and bacteria fighting properties, both oils promote the healing of skin and lets face it, they smell fantastic, too! Zinc Oxide is proven to lower skin inflammation associated with irritation and rashes, it help keeps moisture locked into skin, and like peppermint and tea tree oils, promotes and quickens wound healing.
These key ingredients, coupled with the simple and effective original blend of SNB, create the perfect salve for cyclist and mountain bikers alike! So go ahead, rub some fun onto your bum, and enjoy your ride without the worry of saddle sores and chafe!
