Two women from Sydney who noticed a gap in the market have launched the world’s first anti-chafe tape.

Mary Tatar and Jenna Wakley, 40 and 32, launched ChubRub Tape in May 2021 after wanting to create a convenient product that can be used to prevent chafing. 

Chafing is a common skin problem that can be caused by friction, moisture and irritating fabric, often causing redness, discomfort and irritation.

This can occur on the inner thighs, stomach, buttocks, crotch, armpits and underneath the feet.

Priced at $19.95, the 5m roll of tape is made from 95 per cent cotton, can stretch up to 180 per cent and is latex-free and sweat resistant.
