Yorkshire business Grizzlyactive have created a new cream which is believed to help cure chafing suffered by chefs who work in busy and hot environments. Grizzlyactive cream is primarily aimed at sports men and women for common ailments such as saddle sore but it is now also being targeted at the culinary world to aid the condition known as “Chef’s Arse”. The cream has been developed to help soothe extreme forms of contact dermatitis or chafing, which is made worse by sweat, heat and friction. The problem comes about in three stages starting with skin abrasion, followed by folliculitis (small red pimply rash) and then sores or abscesses, commonly found around the buttocks. Sufferers of the condition will know the problems it can cause with the worse cases being excruciatingly painful. Grizzlyactive is a new independently, privately owned business in north Yorkshire and managed by its founders Lucy & Sally and the product is manufactured and packaged in Yorkshire. There are a number of different forms that the cream comes in. The smallest and easiest to carry option is Grizzlyactive To Go which are in sachets and cost less than 50p each. The Grizzlyactive Sports Bag is a portable airline friendly 50ml sized tube for more regular use and if you want to stock up on the product then the The Big Dipper, a 500g tub, is also available. The only way to purchase this cream currently is through the Grizzlyactive website but it will soon be on sale in some pharmaceutical chains.
