With cycling ever increasing in popularity, so are our inquiries for recommended anti-chafing products. And for that matter, any athlete or those who suffer with skin rubbing against skin and clothing rubbing skin- all exacerbated by sweating.

Traditionally chafing has been countered with Vaseline and talcum powder but neither are particularly effective nor easy to apply without mess. Step in Anthony. The New York based brand have just released their Anthony No Sweat Body Defense- made with Tapioca Starch it provides a lightweight, powder-like barrier to keep you dry and protects skin and private areas from chaffing and discomfort. There is added Aloe Vera to soothe, hydrate, refresh and protect skin, while natural and powerful antioxidant Vitamin E nourishes.

The novel formula transforms from a cream to a natural, talc-free lightweight powder immediately upon application to the skin. The fresh, citrus scent helps rid any potential malodour. Other important ingredients include Macadamia Nut Oil Extract which delivers superior moisture and glide, Olive Oil Extract which works as an emollient for a lightweight, non-greasy feel and finally; Glycerin (vegetable-based) which acts as a nourishing skin conditioner.

Anthony No Sweat Body Defense is best applied generously at anytime and before any activity. Use regularly. Target key private areas to protect skin from friction and chaffing. The long-lasting, non-irritating formula is suitable for both men and women- 90ml.
