Gear Review: Rocket Pure Natural Anti-Chafe Balm

Rocket Pure’s Friction Therapy Natural Anti-Chafe Balm Stick was a staple in my backpack throughout the Appalachian Trail. I was spared of chafe and discomfort because of Rocket Pure’s products  and honestly want to thank the company for making this product because it saved me from the discomfort of thigh, underarm and back chafe. Courtesy of the summer heat, I learned that while hiking you can develop chafe just about anywhere-but thanks to Rocket Pure’s Anti-Chafe Balm Stick I was quickly able to protect hot spots on my skin from both skin and clothing contact. It didn’t leave a greasy or slimy feeling that other anti-chafing products can leave and it worked!



If you have experienced body chafing then you understand how painful it can be, making it important to find a product that works for you. I cannot image having hiked over twenty mile days without Rocket Pure and was so happy that this product protected my skin from chafing. I genuinely prefer Rocket Pure’s Anti-Chafe Balm Stick to other anti-chafing products for multiple reasons.

In comparison to Body Glide Original Anti-Chafe Balm , a trail favorite,Rocket Pure’s Anti-Chafe Balm Stick felt like more of a lubricant and reduced the friction of skin to skin contact when in comparison to Body Glide.Body Glide’s Original Anti-Chafe Balm left a waxy feeling and the product really didn’t “glide” on.  In fact, Body Glide almost felt dry and it really didn’t prevent my thigh chafe. Vaseline, another lubricant, was too slimy on my skin and left a residue on my clothing. Rocket Pure’s Anti-Chafe Balm Stick is definitely my anti-chafe product of choice because of its easy application, chafe protection and all natural products.

Do you want to know the best part about Rocket Pure? It’s policy of 100% Satisfaction or a 100% refund. I highly recommend this product and with this policy theres no harm in trying!

While in the mist of my AT planning, I knew I’d need something to help combat the chafe and reached out to Rocket Pure LLC regarding their products . Alex, the founder of this awesome Company additionally donated to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention on behalf of  Hiking Miles for Smiles, Hannah and I’s fundraising campaign, which I believe speaks volumes about Alex and his company. Thank you Alex and to Rocket Pure for supporting our fundraising efforts and our AT Thru-Hike!
