Where do I even begin? The silly, smile inducing name? The adorably whimsical monkey? The benefits of of a powder that could be used on your butt…among other areas of your body? How did I get involved discussing personal hygiene on a motorcycle blog?
About Anti Monkey Butt Powder
Here’s the official spin:
AMBP is a new product, invented by motocross athletes, designed to treat friction and irritation that can result from excess sweat. Excessive sweat from running can cause irritation, also known as “monkey butt”. Unlike other powders, AMBP has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other products.
OK. I think we can all agree that “monkey-butt” is not something as motorcycle riders that we want to experience but probably have one time or another, especially during long road trips.
Does this look familiar to anyone?
But it is also useful for things other than gag gifts like: sweaty feet, chafing, diaper rash, razor burn and basic bed or saddle sores.
My thoughts of Anti Monkey Butt Powder
I don’t use powder a whole lot but I used this during the few hot summer days we had. I have a really sensitive nose when it comes to certain scents and this powder has a really flowery smell (and not that of monkey-butt, thankfully) that caught in my throat upon initial use. But you’re not really going to be sticking your nose in those areas that are vulnerable to getting sweaty or chafed.
It definitely helped keep certain areas dry and after some time out in the hot weather it helped cool those areas off. I also made my husband try it out and he thought it “wasn’t bad”-a glowing review coming from a guy’s perspective!
AMBP contains calamine powder and talc, two essential ingredients in keeping skin dry and less irritated. As far as powders go, this is definitely a valid option for anyone to use (despite the snicker-inducing name). Especially for those with a sense of humor who don’t want a boring powder in their medicine cabinet!
