Invented by Pierre-Louise Creme de Chamois in 1832, chamois butt'r was initially used to reduce friction and speed the delivery of cannonballs from a cannon bore. It was on a reconnaissance ride from Paris to Nice several years later, that after lathering his derriere in his anti-friction cream (for purposes unbeknownst to historians alike), Pierre-Louise discovered his formula prevented chaffing while on mounted horseback. This event simultaneously marked the invention of its use as a preventative against saddle sores and the first Paris-Nice.
