Multi-Purpose Soothing Skin Salve (4min)

Little Bum Soothing Skin Salve;

is made to provide immediate relief and then repair our littlest ones' sensitive skin when it is dry, itchy and irritated from things like cradle cap, diaper rash, sunburn, eczema, and psoriasis. Highly concentrated for amazing value, a pea-sized amount covers an area the size of the back of your hand! It is not medicated and is free of parabens so you are able to safely apply as symptoms are experienced or use daily to prevent diaper rash.  

Little Bum is 100% natural and effective for 18 months after opening. Jars rarely last long though, as this product has a blend of ingredients that are seriously multi-purpose!

Infusions of Lavendar, Chamomile and Calendula

Little Bum was formulated with a group of of about a dozen mamas who were looking for better for their baby's bottom in 2014. The result was a product free of essential oils but richly aromatic with warm florals from the infused of raw lavendar, chamomile and calendula flowers. The rest of the ingredients are coconut oil, shea butter, mango butter, beeswax, stearic acid, and grapefruit seed extract as a natural preservative.

Great as a moisturizer, repair salve for cracked nipples, after-sun treatment, or beard cream

We have had a jar in the house since long before the arrival of our first child. The blend of rich moisture, vitamins and fatty acids make it a great stand in as a;

  • face cream
  • body moisturizer
  • repair salve for cracked nipples (if you revisit the ingredients, you can see that they are all safe for your skin while still breastfeeding babe)
  • makeup remover
  • beard cream
  • aftershave salve
  • tattoo balm
  • and skin treatment immediately after too much sun

Safe with cloth diapers

Some diaper creams are notorious for building up and ruining cloth diapers. The big culprits are Oil, Zinc-Oxide and Petroleum Jelly. The ingredients layer into the diaper and are not removed when washed, resulting in a buildup that repels liquids and makes the diapers ineffective. Our Little Bum appropriately melts and wash away during a warm or hot wash (recommended for cloth diapers) because it has none of the problematic ingredients.

Perfect fit for minimalist and climate adaptive lifestyles

If you want a single product that will provide for your child's skincare and act as a a stand-in for many other skincare needs in the home, Little Bum is it. The compostable packaging can be disposed of in your backyard compost, returning the organic ingredients and packaging to your soil and eliminating the landfill footprint of your child's skincare.
