Sounds like the same thing - especially as the can says "graisse a traire" and "uierzalf" (it's Dutch apparently)   :D

No heat in it - at least not until you try to scrape it off with a scrubbing brush in the shower ...!!  :S :S :S

It keeps the cold and wet out by putting a solid layer of grease between your exposed skin and the rest of the world. For cycling/leg use I imagine that it'd go on as a surface layer after the heat rubs. Like I say, at -20 and below as a protection for my face while skiing it works wonderfully - stops the frost nip on the cheek bones and nose that anyone who lives in cold climates knows only too well ...

 :)

Yep, that's the stuff, then. Sorry, I reached the wrong conclusion there! :P
