This is a review of the Chamois Butt’r Coconut chamois cream. I’ve been using it for the last 2 weeks during my endurance training, and in this review, you will find out if it is worth it or not.
I think I can spoil the answer already. ‘Yes,’ it is worth it. Feel free to order it now or continue reading to find out more about who it is good for, how long one tube lasts, and my experience with it.
Who Is This Cream for?
Chamois Butt’r is one of the market leaders in chamois creams. It was founded in 1988 and has since launched several popular products – including the legendary Chamois Butt’r Original.
Chamois Butt’r Coconut is a brand new chamois cream ideal for cyclists who spend long hours in the saddle.
However, all endurance athletes such as runners or triathletes who experience chafing in areas like thighs, armpits, toes, nipples can take advantage of it.
Coconut Anit-Chafe cream has a similar formula to Chamois Butt’r Original. It is also great for women because it does not disturb the pH balance of their intimate parts, and it is gentle for sensitive women’s skin.
It is also worth noting that Chamois Butt’r Coconut is made from organic ingredients such as certified coconut oil, shea butter, vitamins A & E, aloe vera, and tea tree oil. The cream also does not contain parabens, phthalates, gluten, or artificial fragrances.
My Experience with Chamois Butt’r Coconut
Endurance training on a road bike often exceeds 3 hours. It is easy to experience discomfort during long rides. And chamois creams help with that.
I have used several chamois creams of lesser-known brands (Morgan Blue, Force). However, after testing Chamois Butt’r Coconut, I have to admit that the difference is striking.
Chamois Butt’r Coconut is a whole new level for me. This cream reduces chafing, not just the first hour (as the creams I’ve used), but I can feel its effects even after 3 hours.
I would say that a good chamois cream increases your comfort by 2 levels. Don’t expect it will resolve all your bike fit issues.
What I also like about it is that it soothes already chafed skin. So, when I forget to apply it before a ride, I take a shower once I return and apply the cream afterward.
My irritated skin immediately calms down and I can quickly forget about the pain of my intimate areas.
Another great feature is that you can wash it off easily, not only from your skin but also from cycling shorts. This is an essential feature because you don’t want your chamois cream to destroy your expensive clothing.

Chamois Butt’r Coconut FAQ
To wrap things up, I wish I would try Chamois Butt’r Coconut sooner. I can recommend it for every cyclist that spends long hours in the saddle.
Every way to increase your riding comfort will make your rides more enjoyable. And better comfort also means better performance.
But remember, if you have a poor bike fit or saddle, chamois cream won’t solve all your saddle sore issues. Always start with solving the cause of discomfort. Chamois cream is a nice bonus.
