Loras Skin and Saddle Sore Salve
Spend a lot of time in a saddle bicycling, motorcycling, horseback riding? Then you’re probably familiar with saddle sores and rashes. Those awful little boils (somewhat like a large pimple) on your most sensitive area.
While yes, it helps to make sure you’ve got a good saddle and nice riding shorts or pants, let’s face it, if you spend enough time in a saddle and go enough distance, you’re likely to get saddle sores.
Bag Balm has been a popular choice among riders to help prevent and cure sores, however did you know that the active ingredient in Bag Balm, 8-Hydroxyquinoline Sulphate, may contribute to cancer risks and has unknown effects on the skin when left on for extended periods of time, according to the Environmental Working Group? As more and more research becomes available, sulphates are being singled out as a cancer risk, especially breast cancer, even when applied to the skin.
Lora’s Skin and Saddle Sore Salve is made from completely natural ingredients and no sulfates! Olive oil, avocado oil, vitamin E oil, and beeswax make for a very healing, soothing, and safe salve. For best results, lather some on your saddle before hitting the saddle! After your ride, take a warm shower, and reapply Lora’s Skin and Saddle Sore Salve.
