How to Prevent & Treat Chafing

Chafing, the skin irritation caused by the rubbing of body parts with each other or with fabric is now easy to prevent and treat

Chafing, the irritation you feel mostly in the inner thigh region while walking or running, is now a thing of the past!

Chafing is a skin related issue which many people face. It is the irritation caused by the friction of skin rubbing against skin in areas like the inner thighs, or when skin rubs against fabric that leaves the  affected area raw and irritable. Besides the inner thigh, other parts of the body that often suffer chafing include breasts, buttocks, groins, underarms and feet.

Some of the most common causes of chafing include friction on the skin during activities such as walking and running, rubbing of skin against clothes, dry skin due to aging, excess moisture on the surface of the skin from sweating or water sports, wearing fabrics that don’t wick moisture, overly developed muscles from exercise, tight-fitting shoes or heels, and being overweight.


If left unattended the problem could compound itself over time, and lead to rashes and swelling.  That is why it is essential for busybodies to start paying attention to chafing preferably before it occurs, and start treatment immediately.

RawNature, a PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free brand, is now tackling the problem head-on with its range of creams and talc. Whether you want to prevent chafing or you want to make sure minor irritation does not lead to anything major, these products will have your back.
