Docs SkincareAll Natural Chamois Creme(Return to Product Page)Add your own review
This chamois creme is very similar to Assos one as far as consistency and seem to work as well. Was cheaper than Assos cream so if it will prove to work as well will definitely keep using it.
Last about the same - so far tested on few 3-4hr rides and medium 50-65F temperatures.
Like it little better than the Euro chamois cream.
Not sure yet how it works under rainy or really hothumid conditions.
Scent is also very pleasant.
This chamois cream works great for me, doesn't smell too strongly, doesn't have petroleum-derived ingredients, doesn't stain, price is good, especially when it goes on sale at BikeTiresDirect :-).
The two minor issues I have with it are that it seems to have a seasonal availability (I guess it's made in fewer/smaller batches such that when they sell out, you wait months for it to be available again) and it'd be nice to have a squeeze tube dispenser rather than a tub for the obvious reason for this type of product.
Doc's chamois cream has been my Go To for years now. It has a soft, non-oily texture like whipped cream cheese but even a little lighter than that. It is not over-powering with Tea Tree Oil or menthol (like some others). This chamois cream does it's job without gooping up your shorts. In fact, after a ride there is little "evidence" that as much cream was ever there. And because you get 8 oz. for less money than most products give you 4 oz., you can apply liberally for best results.
This isn't my favorite chamois cream, but it's less expensive than others and works well for rides up to about 40 miles. It's thinner than most other creams so you may end up using more than some other brands, but even so it still works out cheaper than Assos, DZ Nuts, and Chamois Butt'r.
After trying a number of creams I bought some of this on sale on day. I found I liked how this reduced the discomfort I had been experiencing so much I soon reordered. Doc's seems easier to apply evenly than other creams and is definitely effective in reducing those hot spots on three hour rides.
This is the first real chamois cream I ever tried and don't feel the need to try anything else.
It just works for me, doesn't smell weird, doesn't have some of the major ingredients reputed as bad for your skin (e.g. petrolatum, mineral oil), doesn't stain my cycling clothes.
Even after a 3 to 4 hour super sweaty ride, when I come home and shower, I can feel the chamois cream hasn't been washed away by sweat or degraded into nothingness by the heat and movement.
I thought I would give this a try after being very happy with Enzo's product (also from BTD). You never know until you try it, and preferences vary for such types of products. However, I will be going back to Enzo's. I would put Doc's on par with DZ Nuts (and similar), but for me I prefer Enzo's by far. I prefer the consistency, texture, and longevity of the Enzo's product, but others might not.
This chamois creme has a great consistency- not as thickhard as Betwixt and not as thin as Paceline. It also has a pleasant tea tree oil scent without the unpleasant numbing property of some Euro style blends. I probably marginally prefer Assos, but definitely don't find it worth the much higher cost.
I really like this stuff. Great antibacterial properties, feels good and does what it's supposed to. Has just about the same consistency (although slightly less stiff) than the Assos stuff. However, for the same price, you get twice as much.
I am an older woman. Our bodies change. Nothing we can do about that, but we can keep riding comfortably with Doc's. Not too greasy, lasts a long time, you don't need a lot, and it doesn't smell like a candy cane.
I've used the Docs cream for many rides lasting 1 to 4 hours, and found it holds up well in hot, humid conditions. The viscosity is medium compared to other brands (some being solid, and others runny), and it has a pleasant herbal scent from tea tree oil-a natural anti-microbial. This is definitely one of my favorite chamois creams.
I wasnt sure I was going to like not having a tube to squeeze but this has not been a problem. For putting it in my shorts it spreads easily and has lasted during my hour to hour and fifteen sprinting class. Prior to using this I was having some problems.
Doc's is my favorite chamois cream because its higher viscosity makes it easy to apply and helps it hold up well on long rides. It has a pleasant herbal scent from tea tree oil, which (along with witch hazel) soothes your skin and prevents infections. The cream comes in 8oz jars and is relatively economical compared to some other brands that cost the same for just 4 oz.
