Chomper Body Silke Anti Chafing Stick

Pin It!

A while back, a reader asked me about natural sports products.  She was a running and wanted ideas for some alternatives to the traditional stuff like Body Glide.  My husband is an avid runner.  (We call it avid, most other’s say he’s crazy) He runs 10 miles a day on average and does up to 30 on the weekend.  Needless to say he experiences a significant amount of chafing.  He is married to his Body Glide and isn’t up for debating something more natural.

I have also started running but not nearly as much as he does.  So i am anticipating minimal chafing but I’m sure it will happen somewhere between running 7-13 miles at a time.  I’d like to not have to slather petrochemicals all over myself to avoid skin irritation.  The reader who emailed pointed me to a company called Chomper Body.  The line was created by active people who wanted to create a line of products that were healthy and more pure.  Athletes want to have a healthy body, so why slather unhealthy chemicals all over it?

I was given a stick of their Silke Anti Chafing balm to try out.  It comes in a deodorant stick style tube for easy application.  It glides on and stays put in the spots you need protection.  My ultra runner husband says it does wear off but I think that is true of all chafing balms. I used this on a recent 6 miler and came away chafe free. It has a very subtle scent that isn’t noticeable when being active. It goes on clear and doesn’t leave any white marks on your clothes.

They also have a really rad lip balm that I love (licorice scented – I love this and I don’t even like licorice), Muscle Butters, Booty Balms, specialized balms for both men and women, as well as Rest Day Massage Oils. Mmmmm!

Ingredients: Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Calendula, Vitamin E, Rosemary and Lavender Esential Oils.

    I’m the reader that alerted you awhile back. I’m glad you liked it! We’ve been quite happy with it, as well. I only have one complaint – my stick seems to have started to be a bit crumbly. It doesn’t appear to affect it’s performance (since emailing you, I’ve come away from a half marathon, 10k and olympic distance triathlon with no chafing) but it can be a little weird to apply when it’s a bit crumbly.

    Thanks Summer! The product has a shelf life of 1 year so that could affect it. Also, if it gets warm and the cool aain some of the butters can soften and then harden back up making it crumbly. Shouldn’t affect the performance, just the application. Most natural products I’ve used tend to do that if they are really all natural ingredients like this one. But so far I, too, and liking it. I just signed up for my first half marathon in Feb (yikes)!

    Hi there, I’m the husband of the reader that alerted you… Anyways I’ve also been using Chomper’s Ballocks chamois cream and have run into the same destabilizing issue, but as noted it still performs perfectly and I’ve been extremely happy with it.

    There is one other all-natural anti-chafe stick that I found by Inyangi http://www.inyangi.com/products/magistik-sport-butter that we haven’t tried yet but are still curious about — it might we worth looking into on your end. Chomper was our first test post-Body Glide and I think their pricing/shipping was a little cheaper which is the only reason we went that route.

    I bet that’s what happened because sometimes it has gotten hot and then cooled off again.

    Good luck on your race! I just did my 4th half marathon (well 5th if you count the one I did as part of my half Ironman triathlon) in August. It’s such a great distance to run.
