Oh Baby Oh! " What a bum!" Organic Diaper Balm - to help soothe any bottom!
Sweet Harvest Farms
Oh Baby Oh Diaper Balm
I have had many refer to how we formulate our diaper rash cream as "diaper ointment on steroids"! We believe, that less is not more, in this case. The more organic and necessary ingredients combined can help soothe and promote healing rather than just a few that do nothing but dry the skin out causing chapping and the flaking of skin.
Sweet Harvest Farms will never use any petroleum or mineral oil derivatives to include lanolin. The occlusive nature of petroleum and mineral oil can create a warm, moist environment for yeast and fungus to grow.
Likewise, we choose not to use Zinc Oxide that is normally found in many cosmetic products to include sunscreen and diaper cream.
Some fear zinc oxide due to the perceived health risks of zinc oxide nano particles entering the bloodstream. However, research as shown zinc oxide particles which are larger than 30nm are not absorbed by the body when used in lotions or creams. We just don't like taking that chance and we choose to use just a tad of 100% pure beeswax to help form a barrier against moisture.
Don't think it's just for baby's bums either! Come on ladies and gents we have all been there!
Organic Oils of :
Shea Butter - Shea Butter works as an emollient that softens and hydrates skin. Because it contains several types of fatty acids — including Lineoleic, Oleic, Palmitic and Stearic acids — that help to improve the skin's natural barrier. Shea Butter also protects skin from damage from the environment like pollutants.
Coconut Oil - Is amazing at moisturizing dry skin, including in people with conditions such as eczema. Coconut Oil can also help reduce inflamation and promote wound healing. Coconut Oil also contains antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties.
Aloe Vera - Researchers concluded that the use of Aloe Vera as a home remedy for diaper rash was “clearly supported” because of Aloe Vera's anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. We use 99% pure organic Aloe Vera.
Bentonite Clay – Helps absorb bacteria away from the skin. Bentonite is actually one of the most effective and powerful healing clay's. A recent study showed that around 93% of the infants who received the clay had improved rashes within 6 hours, with 90% completely healed in 3 days.
Rose Hip Oil - Has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Chamomile Oil - Is known for its wound healing, including sores and inflammation.
Vitamin E- Is of course moisturizing, wound healing and reparative.
Rosemary Extract - A strong antioxidant.
Calendula Oil - Is often used on skin to keep wounds clean and help new tissue to grow, especially when skin is exhibiting signs of tenderness, redness, or inflammation.
Jojoba oil - Is actually a wax ester with almost exact properties to our skin's own sebum. This means the "oil" is able to penetrate deeply, reaching below the top layer of skin for maximum nourishment.
Yarrow Oil - has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Tea Tree Oil - Tea tree oil contains a number of compounds, including terpinen-4-ol, that have been shown to kill certain bacteria, viruses, and fungi, preventing infection, and promoting healing.
Pure Beeswax - Helps to keep formula melded and unwanted moisture away from skin. We use a pinch of beeswax instead of Zinc Oxide.

Rememebr, You need just a tad -literally, so this jar packs a punch and will last a long time!
When raising my babies I found that some level of diaper rash, no matter how hard you try, is unavoidable. When this happened I found that after applying the diaper cream and allowing the baby to be without a diaper (free to breath!) for extended periods of time helped hasten healing.
Disclosure: As with any product you may use for your child, if you have any questions at all please reach out to your Pediatrician or to us here at Sweet Harvest Farms. If any raised red areas appear on the skin it could be an allergic reaction, even to organic ingredients. If this occurs discontinue use immediately and contact your pediatrician.
