Some bikers put petroleum jelly on the chamois part of their biking shorts to counter chafing.
But I also heard petrolate is not good for some types of clothing. For instance, one product by Brave Soldier (from the U.S.)...
Endurance sports formula. Superior anti-chafing. Cold water and sweat resistant. Occlusive silicone/botanical barrier protects and conditions skin for hours. Helps prevent blisters and reduce rash irritations. No petrolatum so safe for wet suits. Long lasting protection from any sports activity where gear chafing of your skin is a problem. Antibacterial formula helps prevent minor skin irritations.
• Cyclists: a superior, extremely durable chamois product for hours of riding comfort. Even in wet weather.
• Triathletes: safe and effective for wet suits and running shoes.
• Runners: chafing due to clothes rubbing. Blisters.
• Winter Sports: excellent barrier to reduce wind chafing.
KY Jelly is a non-greasy, water-based gel. It washes off easily because it is water-based.
It is applied in ultrasound probes for external lubrication purposes. Makes gliding smooth.
It may also be used as a supplement to natural lubrication in.. uhmmm... whatever application (or probes) you see fit (pun intended).
Petroleum Jelly is used for sealing your kissable lips and skin to avoid (or provide relief from) chaffing and wear-and-tear and effects of extreme weather.
A Petroleum Jelly substitute? Improved formula, maybe?
