My youngest little man Joshua, has sensitive skin. At nappy change time he always needs some sort of barrier cream and if I miss it out a few times his poor little bot can become red very quickly.
I was sent some Yumbums All Natural Bottom Balm for Bubs.
When I opened it up I noticed straight away that this is a completely natural and organic balm. No sweet smelling perfumed fragrances, no synthetic unnatural colours. Yumbums contains no artificial, toxic or irritating petrochemicals, parabens, sulphates, synthetic fragrances or colours. Only the highest quality natural and organic substances are used.
It has been formulated by a qualified naturopath Gali Lenko and is completely Australian made and owned. Gali originally made it for her family and friends' babies as a gift, but she was thrilled with the results.
Some of the key ingredients used are:
- Organic Olive Oil to moisturise and soothe delicate skin.
- Organic Coconut Oil which helps to hydrate and clean.
- Organic Beeswax which is great for a protective barrier.
- Lots of lovely herbal extracts like Calendula, Chamomile, Golden Seal, and Licorice root. They have been chosen for their skin healing properties and to make dry, itchy, hot skin feel soothed, relieved and cool.
I immediately used it on Josh's sore bottom on his last nappy change for the night. In the morning his skin looked normal and had no redness at all and I had a happy boy again!
Yumbums can also be used for any irritated skin conditions such as eczema in both adults and children. Its ingredients are naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and extremely healing to the skin.
It retails for $18.50 for a 50ml jar and you can buy it online or find out more at www.yumbums.com.au.
