Vegan Chamois Cream

 The last Chamois Cream I made has done well but some cyclists contacted me to ask if I could do a vegan option.  So I’ve decided to cut out the beeswax to make a cream that will suit vegans.

The only other ingredient I have added to the recipe is Orange Essential Oil.  I chose Orange Essential Oil as it has been proved to be effective against 22 bacteria including 12 fungi.  The study was published by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information and can be found here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8893526

Shea Butter is useful in moisturising, softening, healing and protecting your skin. Coconut Oil is naturally moisturising and acts as a powerful anti-bacterial. Almond Oil is rich in Vitamin E and Zinc and has been known to heal and nourish the skin and soothe it from irritation and inflammation. Tea Tree Oil is known for its antiseptic, anti-fungal and infection-reducing properties.

  The combination of Orange and Tea Tree Oil works well and gives the cream a subtle neutral smell that should appeal to both men and women.
