Don’t buy a tub or packet of this minty chamois cream goodness solely based on its clever name, ButtonHole. Also buy it because it’s made in the USA with naturally good stuff—peppermint oil, cocoa seed butter and sunflower seed oil. You won’t find parabens, mineral oil or anything from our furry friends (that’s right, it’s vegan). Enzo’s also donates 10% of sales to children’s charities.
Enzo's is passionate about developing and producing high quality products at an affordable price, without compromising product performance. We don’t want anything on our body that’s a known eye or skin irritant, shown to cause cancer or associated with things like Formaldehyde, and we’re pretty sure that you don’t either.
In fact, we’re as picky about what we put into our products as we are about what we keep out. We promise that you’ll never find any of the following ingredients in Enzo’s Cycling Products: parabens, mineral oil, DMDM hydantoin, Oleth-10 or Triethanolamine.
PARABENS: Used as a preservative agent in cosmetics, parabens can cause skin irritation, contact dermatitis and rosacea in individuals with paraben allergies—a small percentage of the general population. Because parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, certain studies have concluded that exposure to them may be indirectly linked to breast cancer.
MINERAL OIL: A common ingredient in many skin care products, used to promote moisture. Mineral oil is a scentless clear liquid, the byproduct of the distillation of gasoline from crude oil. Due to its nature of creating a thin layer on the skin, this liquid isn’t easily absorbed by the skin, which in turn can clog pores.
DMDM HYDANTOIN: Most commonly used in cosmetic products and shampoos as a preservative to prevent mold and mildew. Can be a strong eye, skin and lung irritant. Skin contact has been known to cause allergic eczema (dermatitis). It is also a formaldehyde-releasing agent and may cause reactions in formaldehyde sensitive individuals including blistering, burning and itching of the skin.
OLETH-10: This ingredient, commonly used in skin care products, has been found to be possibly contaminated with impurities linked to cancer and other significant health problems. It has also been found to be a mild to moderate skin irritant.
TRIETHANOLAMINE: Triethanolamine is used primarily as an emulsifier and surfactant—something that helps a product spread over a surface. It also serves as a pH balancer in many different cosmetic products. A known eye, skin, nose and throat irritant that can cause liver cancer in rats
