Strength:

Good stuff if it doesn't make you sick

Weakness:

Contains poisonous ingredient Methylisothiazolinone sold onder the trade mame Kathon.

This product contains a preservative called Methylisothiazolinone. This compound is fairly safe when included in wash-off products but it's a strong sensitizer when used in stay-on products like lotions. After a few years of using Assos Chamois gell I acquired a very severe hypersensitivity to this compound. My symptoms were not only rashes in my crotch but severe general attacks of dermatitis so bad that they had to be treated with systemic corticosteriods.

Before you try Assos chamois gell you should read about Methylisothiazolinone here:

Also google Kathon sensitizing. You will get a bunch of hits like these:

Strength:

Long Lasting, Feels Good

Weakness:

Expensive, can be hard to find.

Of all the products that I've tried this is the best. It's expensive but it's worth it. I use this on the long ride and store brand stuff on shorter rides because I'm cheap.

Similar Products Used: Paceline Chamois Butter, Performance and Nashbar store brands
