ORGANIC BABY BALM
WITH SKIN-PROTECTIVE FERMENTED COCONUT OIL.
Fragrance-free (glass 50ml)
Help prevent or soothe nappy rash, soften cradle cap or soothe minor skin irritations.
Care for baby’s delicate skin barrier with a simple blend of pure organic plant oils & beeswax.
Enriched with our signature fermented coconut oil, scientifically proven high in skin-regenerative plant actives.
Fermented coconut oil is weakly acidic like healthy skin, and has antimicrobial properties against bacteria & fungi that contribute to nappy rash & skin irritation.
Our coconut oil is made from coconuts bought by us direct from the tree, & hand fermented by our partner social enterprise in Cambodia. Contains Fair-Trade shea butter as well.
We donate our coconut oil to NZ community groups supporting families with premature babies (coconut oil helps condition premature babies’ underdeveloped skin).
Glass packaging for infinite recyclability.
HOW TO USE
Nappy rash: Apply a thin layer (pea sized amount) to clean dry skin regularly at nappy changes, to help prevent nappy rash or soothe existing nappy rash.
Nappy rash is caused by an increase in the skin pH & microbiome dysregulation. The fermented coconut oil in our baby balm helps gently reacidify the skin to lower pH, which promotes an environment where healthy skin flora re-establish.
Minor skin irritation: Apply a thin layer to affected area 2-3 times a day; see your health professional if symptoms persist. Fermented coconut oil & shea butter are anti-inflammatory & promote skin cell healing.
Cradle cap: Apply a thin layer to the scalp to help alleviate build up of scales. After a few hours, gently exfoliate with a damp washcloth & rinse scalp to remove any oil residue.
Cradle cap is associated with an imbalance of Malassezia fungus, linked to inflammation. Research shows coconut oil can help shift the scalp microbiome to a more favourable balance.

Patch test before first use, and discontinue if irritation occurs.
Contains fermented coconut oil for its antibacterial/anti-fungal properties, which hardens in cool temperatures. To soften the balm at cooler times of the year, place it in a warm spot prior to using.
Use within six months of opening the jar. If using reusable nappies, consider using a nappy liner & hot washing to avoid residue build up from an oil based balm.
A zinc based nappy rash product may be required for severe nappy rash.
