One of the products I received from ECO Store USA was the Baby Nappy Balm. Our little B has a very sensitive bum and we are always fighting with the diaper rash. We’ve tried many of the creams that are available at the store (Aveno, Triple Paste, etc) but none of them seem to clear up the rashes. They go in cycles from good to bad to OK but her bum is never clear of the rash. At first I thought she was sensitive to the diapers but I’ve tried many, including cloth, and the bum doesn’t change. Her doctor seems to think that it’s her diet (breastfed) and the frequency of poos (literally every hour!!!). We can change her and five minutes later she can be dirty again. Like most parents, we don’t change her more than about once an hour or two.
So I was excited to try my new Nappy Balm from ECO Store USA but I honestly didn’t expect the outcome. We first applied the balm on Tuesday night and by Wed. morning the rash had already started to clear up (after 8hrs in her diaper). I was in shock!!! Now just over 24 hours later there is still a rash but it’s clearing up and most spots are gone. This was the only factor that we changed. I’m curious to see what happens over the next few days.
I was reading the ingredientson the back of the box and I’m not sure what the winning ingredient is but it includes olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, beeswax, zinc oxide (found in almost all diaper creams), and horopito extract. The cream is more like a thick lotion and is much smoother (all those oils) than those traditional creams. I first applied a little dab on my hand and it absorbs into your skin and doesn’t leave that thick white paste behind. (Which for the record I thought was helping her.) There are no nasty chemicals or odors with this balm either.
