Mad Alchemy's Pro Plus Chamois Cream is made from all-natural, plant-based ingredients to provide superior protection from chafing and irritation. It be can be applied before riding to a chamois or directly on the skin for maximum lubrication, and it can also be used post-ride to stave off saddle sores. Unlike other chamois creams, Pro Plus has a smooth feel that isn't gooey or gummy, and the incorporation of essential oils gives it a pleasant herbal scent.

This is their citrus version and not at all herbal. I've been using this cream for a long time. It lasts through my 3-4 hour rides no sweat. With the old cream I used to get occasional irritation but with Mad Alchemy my skin stays perfect keeping me comfortable and on the bike longer. I was buying something else on Biketiresdirect and added a jar to my cart. Everything came quickly and as expected.
Like many 'personal' products, say shampoo or shaving creme, it's impossible to know for sure whether this will be your favorite. I have used at least three other brands Assos,Doc's,Button Hole come to mind. I've known riders who didn't use creme at all. I found this to a very pleasant and protective compound. It's certainly comparable to any other brand I've used.
It's pretty thin... I would say it's not not as thick or long lasting as Assos. It also transfers through the chamois and onto the outside of my bib shorts which leaves an oily blotch on the saddle. The ingredients are great, and I like that it's not petroleum based. I think it could just use a little refining.
