nubütte (pronounced “new butt”) is a chamois cream with the main ingredient being Shea Butter (a natural fat extracted from the fruit of the shea tree) and this, claims the company, means nubütte protects and moistures longer than a water-based cream.
All ingredients used in the manufacturing of nubütte are Fair Trade, with Shea Butter sourced from Africa. Shea Butter is said to have great moisturising, healing and anti-inflammatory properties and this, along with many other natural ingredients, should ensure comfort in the saddle, no matter how long the ride.
nubütte can also be used to heal and soothe sunburn, chapped lips, small scrapes, bumps and bruises, and dry skin. 10% of the company’s profits are donated to junior cycling programmes. nubütte costs $20 for a 118ml sized tub.
