Calming Calendula Butter = Natures Apothecary for Ultra-Sensitive Skin
Start with ultra-sensitive skin, add the chemicals and moisture of urine and stools, cover the area with a diaper that rubs back and forth, and you have diaper rash. This damaged skin is susceptible to the invasion of bacteria and yeast, which can make the rash worse. Its been said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With that in mind, it is good to apply a protective barrier during each diaper change to prevent skin irritation.

HARD WORKING INGREDIENTS
Calendula is a well-known medicinal herb and uplifting ornamental garden plant that has been used therapeutically and ceremonially for centuries. Most commonly known for its topical use as an infused oil for wounds and skin trauma, the bright orange or yellow flower contains many important constituents for a variety of ailments. It is very calming to the skin and proven to aid in wound healing.
Mango Butter has been used by the indigenous people of the forest regions of Southeast Asia for centuries. It is rich in antioxidants and emollients as well as Vitamins A and E, it is used to soften and moisturize rough dry/cracked skin. Its natural properties are useful for protecting the skin from the weather and UV radiation. Mango butter helps heal and protect the skin from damage caused by sunburn and frostbite. For new moms it can be used as a nipple cream to relieve irritation and help revitalize sensitive, sore or chapped nursing nipples. Safe for ingestion, so safe for baby. We use an all-natural unrefined version of mango butter so it can feel grainy at first or may look like it is beading or separating (think natural peanut butter), but melts on contact with skin. This does not change the fabulous qualities it offers.
We love beeswax because not only is it natural and non-toxic, it provides benefits to the skin. When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, beeswax doesn’t “suffocate” the skin, and won’t clog pores.
Meadowfoam Seed Oil is cold pressed from the tiny seeds of Limnanthes alba, which produces an oil with superb anti-oxidant properties and skin softening benefits.
The terpenes in tea tree oil give this versatile substance antiseptic properties that make it especially powerful for healing wounds and battling an infection. It’s even been shown in scientific research published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology in 2006 to be effective at fighting a strain of staph bacteria that is resistant to many common antibiotics. For this reason, it’s often used as a natural remedy to prevent infection in small wounds, blisters, and burns.
Widely known for its antimicrobial properties, lavender has a rich history. Research suggests that lavender oil speeds the healing of burns, cuts, scrapes and wounds partly due to its anti-microbial properties.
