A possible alternative to the popular BodyGlide is the lesser known Anti Money Butt anti friction powder. Anti Monkey Butt’s ingredients include talc, calamine powder and fragrance. The powder is very fine and the fragrance is barely noticeable. The label states that the powder is for “indoors or outdoors, work or play - or on occasions when you sit on your butt all day”. Even if you don't suffer from red buns you've gotta love the picture on the label.
Anti Monkey Butt and BodyGlide are anti-chafing product options that are surely more desirable than using axle grease or nothing at all.
