Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm
I really love this effective diaper cream sold by Earth Mama Angel Baby company. The company’s philosophy is fully aligned with mine – zero toxins. All ingredients are plant-based and almost all with the exception one are certified organic. The balm is an organic olive oil base infused with naturally antibacterial and antifungal organic herbal extracts, organic shea butter, and organic essential oils.
Here is a list of ingredients.
Olea europaea (organic olive) oil, Butyrospermum parkii (organic shea) butter, Euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, Simmondsia chinensis (organic jojoba) oil, Melaleuca alternifolia (organic tea tree), Lavandula angustifolia (organic lavender) flower oil, Calendula officinalis (organic calendula) flower extract, Hypericum perforatum (organic St. John’s wort) flower extract, Stellaria media (organic chickweed) extract, Plantago major (organic plantain) extract, Commiphora myrrha (myrrh)
It looks like a vaseline but smoother and easier to apply than vaseline. It is an effective diaper cream for everyday use.
Badger Zinc Oxide Diaper Cream
If your baby has some skin irritation or a diaper rash, a zinc oxide is an effective diaper cream for that. This effective diaper cream does not have zinc oxide nanoparticles. You can read my discussion about the nanoparticles in zinc oxide in here.
The ingredients of this effective diaper cream are also straightforward and harmless.
Active Diaper Cream Ingredient:
Non-Nano, Uncoated Zinc Oxide 10%
*Helianthus Annuus (Organic Sunflower Oil) Oil, *Cera Alba (Organic Beeswax), *Calendula Officinalis (Organic Calendula) CO2 extract, Tocopherol (Sunflower Vitamin E).
Bepanthen Nappy Care Cream
After I discovered this effective diaper cream, I stopped worrying about my baby’s bottom. With one or two applications (depending on the severity of a diaper rash), it cures any redness, irritation, or rash. I started calling it a miracle cream. There are over 1,000 reviews on Amazon that either 5 or 4 stars calling the cream a miracle as well.
The effective diaper cream unlike the ones above contains petroleum-based ingredients such as parrafinum liquidum, petrolatum, and ozokerite. Petroleum-based products may be contaminated with toxic PAHs (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), if not fully refined. I do not normally recommend petroleum-based products on my blog. I made an exception for this one because it works wonders based on my experience and Amazon reviews.e
And lastly, it contains lanolin and some people may have an allergy to lanolin.
Where to buy and cost: Bepanthen can be bought on Amazon and is shipped from the UK by various sellers. I never had any delivery problems. It is always delivered sooner than promised 18-26 days.
