FAQ Chafing Cream
What is a chafing cream?
It is a cosmetic either in cream, ointment or stick designed to protect the skin from chafing and blisters caused by friction.
Either skin against skin, or an external element such as a sock or shoe that rubs against the skin.
The 3 main types of uses of the anti chafing cream are:
In addition in Migo Bcn we have a cold effect cream and a regenerating cream, which are perfect as a complement to the anti chafing cream.
Can an anti-friction cream be used on any part of the body?
Yes and No, since there are creams designed for specific areas of the body that may not be suitable for other parts of the body.
For example, an anti-friction cream with menthol if used near the female genital area and comes into contact with that area can be very itchy, while it can be pleasant for the feet.
Any part of the body is understood to be friction zones, not the eyes for example.
What packaging is best in an anti-friction cream?
Perhaps the most convenient format is in stick but we believe that the most hygienic and economical format is in jar, since the stick is in direct contact with the skin whereas with the jar you extract the product and apply it on the skin.
Keeping the product cleaner and more hygienic.
Is anti-scratch cream, anti-scratch gel, anti-scratch Vaseline and anti-scratch balm the same thing?
No, but being different products, they fulfill the same or very similar function.
The difference is that they usually have different densities and components.
