The Best Diaper Rash Cream
Have you been making Homemade Lotion, Homemade Vaseline, Homemade Lip Balm, Homemade Shaving Cream, and other natural health and beauty products for yourself? I've been enjoying all my homemade goodies ever since we started making/using them. But what about natural products for baby? He deserves the best too and if you are already making them for yourself, you will have most of the ingredients needed to make this best diaper rash cream for your little! This recipe is cloth diaper approved (even for cheap cloth diapers!). It shouldn't build up and if you are having problems with it you can run your diapers in a vinegar and baking soda wash to clean them up.
Ok so a note…most recipes I've found for homemade diaper rash cream use zinc oxide. This is supposed to have antibacterial properties. I’m personally not 100% convinced on the safety of zinc oxide since it will be absorbed by the skin (and especially on my baby!) but I encourage you to do your own research on zinc oxide before you make a decision. If you do decide to add it to this recipe you will add 1 tablespoon per batch. The coconut oil in this recipe has antibacterial properties, either way you decide to go.
Best Diaper Rash Cream
What You Need:
- 1/2 cup Shea Butter (Where to Buy)
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (Where to Buy)
- 1 tbsp. Beeswax (Where to Buy)
- 2 tbsp. Vegetable Glycerin (Where to Buy)
Remove from heat. Add in the vegetable glycerin.
With an electric mixer of some kind, beat until the mixture gets creamy.
Pour into a jar or container and let cool. The diaper rash cream will firm up a little more as it cools.
The final product will be very thick, you only need to use a little bit at a time!
