About Boudreaux’s Butt Paste
The founder of Butt Paste, George Boudreaux, was a pharmacist in Louisiana who happened to have four small ones of his own at home. Like most parents, he struggled with diaper rash but couldn’t find anything on the shelves that would do the trick. Hearing the same complaints from other parents in his pharmacy, he went to work formulating his own diaper rash cream. Before long, he hit on a formula that would one day become known as Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. The new formula worked so well, it became a hit. Now you can find Butt Paste in most drugs stores, grocery stores, and world wide!
My Experience With Diaper Creams
Long before I started cloth diapering my favorite go-to rash cream was Boudreaux’s Maximum-strength butt paste. It had the best consistency and worked extremely well. I even liked the way it smelled compared to the other top brands. Once I switched to cloth diapers I wasn’t able to use it unless I had a diaper liner. Butt paste is pretty thick and will coat your cloth diapers, causing them to repel urine.
As I began my blog, I became more conscious of what goes on babies skin and even mine for that matter. Everything you put on your skin will be absorbed through the bloodstream. I switched over to an organic cloth diaper safe cream that seemed to do ok most of the time. When you cloth diaper you usually don’t have that many rashes anyway. One time Asher had a bad case of diarrhea and came home from mommies Day Out with an incredibly large and horrible diaper rash. I knew that my regular organic diaper cream wasn’t going to cut it and I needed something stronger. I immediately reached for my old tube of original extra strength Butt Paste and had him wearing disposable diaper liners to protect his cloth diapers. His diarrhea continued for a couple of days, making the rash harder to fight. Butt Paste eventually got rid of the rash and Asher finally started feeling better. It took about 3-4 days to clear up most of the rash. Once the rash calmed down I switched back to my organic diaper stick and stopped using the disposable liners.
My Review Of the “All Natural ” Butt Paste
Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is still my favorite mainstream rash cream to-date so I was excited to find out that they offered a more eco-friendly option. Boudreaux was kind enough to send me a few samples to review of their “green cream” and an extra tube to give away! The maximum-strength Butt Paste works wonders but I wanted to find a cloth diaper safe / natural alternative that worked well on more stubborn diaper rashes. I wasn’t sure if the “All Natural” Butt Paste would be as effective as the maximum-strength version. The consistency is almost as thick as the regular cream and I find the scent to be fairly pleasant and clean. Technically their all natural green cream isn’t all natural because it still contains 16% Zinc Oxide. Here is a list of all the ingredients used:
- Zinc Oxide, 16%
- Aloe Vera
- Carnauba Wax
- Castor Oil
- Citric Acid
- Hydrogenated Castor Oil
- Peruvian Balsam
Because the cream contains the ingredient zinc oxide, it also makes it less cloth diaper safe. Zinc oxide is a wonderful ingredient for clearing up diaper rashes but it can coat your diapers causing them to repel. I highly suggest using either a reusable or disposable DIAPER LINER when using this products. The all natural Butt Paste has 16% of zinc oxide where as the maximum-strength butt paste has 40%. Some babies are also allergic to zinc oxide so I also advise testing out a small area if you are using this cream for the first time. If you want to learn more about the ingredient zinc oxide you can click HERE. The only other little thing I don’t like about Butt Paste or most diaper creams for that matter, is how it feels on my hands. This is where its super handy to use a Baby Bum Brush. After changing a dirty diaper your hands are not the most sanitary. It’s nice to have a small tool that you can apply the cream onto without getting your hands all creamy in the process. After applying the cream to the brush you spread it onto babies bottom almost like your icing a cake…. kind of. The Baby Bum Brush can also stand on its own because of the suction cup bottom and they come in several colors. I honestly don’t know why anyone didn’t think of this any sooner, they are pretty cool in my opinion!
What I do like about their all natural green cream is that it works very well and almost completely made up of eco-friendly or natural ingredients. I think this is a great diaper rash cream to have even if you don’t use cloth diapers because the ingredients are more natural based. I am glad that Boudreaux is now offering products that are more environmentally friendly, kudos for them!
