Product Review; "Anti Monkey Butt Powder".
So this is a real thing.
Uhm, yea, interesting marketing campaign indeed. So let's just go ahead and collectively get our giggles out and point at the funny little cartoon monkey's red rear end...
Okay, okay... I think that's all of them... okay... OKAY... alright, I'm done. I'm done.
So, now that that's over, here's the scoop. Anti Monkey Butt Powder is a Talc based formula that utilizes Calamine as an agent to relieve itch and prevent soreness. The powder is refined and has a subtle "medicinal" scent that doesn't really linger, but that depends on where you put it.
The term "monkey-butt" is a euphemism "used by motorcycle riders to describe the soreness, itching and redness that occurs when you ride and sweat on a motorcycle for hours. If you have to walk bowlegged like a monkey to prevent your skin from rubbing, you have Monkey Butt!"
Ideally, this product would suit anywhere you have excessive sweating from exertion common to athletes, truck drivers and even soldiers during PT. A small dusting inside shoes/boots, over the palms of hands before gripping or private areas on long road trips will keep you from developing offensive odor, chafing or the irritation that may result. You could even use it between bathings to absorb excess oils on long camping trips or hikes. It's actually quite a usefull product.
But look at that monkey's big ol' red BUTT!!
