Diaper rash cream – it’s got to be effective, but what about toxic? I’ve posted before on the evils of Balmex and Desitin. I’ve also answered one common question, “Diaper Creams: What Can You Use with Cloth Diapers?” But, SafeMama did one better. She created a list of safe diaper creams, even separating out those that contain zinc and those that don’t (making them safe for cloth diapers).
So, without further ado, see if your favorite diaper rash cream makes the SafeMama Diaper Rash Cheat Sheet. And, if it doesn’t, run – don’t’ walk – over to the Cosmetic Database on Skin Deep to see if what you’re using to treat baby’s bum is causing more problems than it’s worth. I’ve personally used Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Angel Baby Bottom Balm, which rates a ZERO on the toxicity scale at Skin Deep, with great results.
