History Tuesday:
My sweet littlest is under the weather with a slight tummy bug (which can mean a sore bum). We are so thankful for the oils I've covered him in and most of all for our Skin Repair! Which got me thinking-what is the history of diaper cream?
The earliest civilizations just used what they had around their home - dry cornstarch, chamomile tea, or oatmeal water. Later, people began to use these in conjunction with lard or shortening to provide a barrier and healing. Wash clothes were also soaked in a baking powder solution before wiping for additional relief.
Only in the last 70 years or so have diaper creams been a thing you purchase. Unfortunately, most of these are filled with various chemicals and ingredients that are not healthy for babies tender skin. Which is why I'm so #thankful for Skin Repair. It's great for diaper rash, ezcema, dry/cracked skin, and more! It heals the worst diaper rash in only a day or so and is completely natural. It's a life saver!
