I LOVE this stuff. I use it on my 9 month old daughter who has bad eczema, and it has improved her skin condition greatly, possibly along with other measures such as avoiding certain food allergens. It keeps her silky smooth for many hours, isn’’t greasy and gloopy, glides on well and she enjoys a massage in the process. Often after using creams or lotions I feel the need to wash my hands, but I always want to leave this stuff soak into my own hands; does them the world of good. It has a pleasant smell and most importantly my daughter loves playing with the pot, using it as a drum! When she sees it she knows what’s coming and gets very excited. After trying a small 50g pot I’m now going to order a 500g pot. Definitely worth the money, and as it’s all natural you know you’re not rubbing any ’muck’ into delicate, sensitive, young skin.
Excellent product - I use it every day on my baby and she has never had nappy rash (we use cloth nappies). It leaves no residue on her skin as some of the other nappy creams do.
I heartily recommend this product. I find it excellent for nappy rash for my small baby, teething chin rash and general grazes. Overnight the redness seems to disappear. I have just lost my tub, while on holidays, and will be ordering a replacement immediately. A beautiful gentle product. As you only have to use a small bit, it lasts a long time and hence it’s great value for money.
