‘If you can’t stand the heat then try Grizzly Active Anti chafing cream ,’ agree the many new Grizzly users from within the Catering community; all desperately seeking a solution on how to treat chafing and the curse of the dreaded ‘Chef’s Arse’.

It often strikes without warning, it’s more common in the hot summer months and does not discriminate on the grounds of gender, age or body shape. Simply, put sweat, heat and friction together in the wrong places and you’re in trouble.
