Babies are a gift; they are delicate and need constant care. With love and ongoing self-educating on the different needs for all stages of childhood, we can all be amazing parents. Charlotte's Bum Butter offers the old European way of taking care of our little ones. Natural materials that are harvested and processed in a safe way that preserves the nutritious quality sourced from small producers that pay their workers fair wage are what fills each tin of Charlotte's Bum Butter.
This wonderful smelling and silky smooth butter is protecting your baby's skin in a very different way from the Zinc Oxide formulas made with petrolatum. Rather than creating a thick, hard to remove layer on top of your baby's skin that serves no other purpose, Charlotte's Bum Butter nourishes the skin from the inside out with natural nutrients like fatty acids, vitamins, enzymes and proteins, building blocks for healthy new skin. It only forms a thin satiny layer of oil that repels moisture and protects the skin from feces. The first extra bonus is that any dirt is easily wiped off with soft cloth and the second, it smells like a dessert, doesn't ruin your bedding and y don't have to wrestle your baby to get the tin out of their hands each time you want to change their diaper.
Your baby will generate more than two thousand wet or messy diapers within the first year alone. It is very important to protect their skin from the acidic moisture created by urine and feces.
We recommend that you change the diaper frequently, at least every two hours for newborns, less so as the baby grows. Change poopy diapers right away. Wipe and dry the skin well before putting on Charlotte’s Bum Butter and a clean diaper.
Sunshine and fresh air is very good for babies skin and it is recommended to let their bums enjoy some fresh air without a diaper for at least 20 minutes a day. This also prevents diaper rash.
Our little Charlotte did not do well with disposable diapers. They didn’t breathe and that caused rash on her skin under the diaper. But occasionally for travel a good disposable diaper was great! We used cloth diapers and loved them. Whichever type of diaper you choose, know that Charlotte’s Bum Butter is safe for disposable and cloth diapers alike.
Why all natural plant based oils?
We believe in sustainable living, in protecting our planet for our children and grandchildren and in doing our best for our little ones. Pampering their skin from the very beginning sets them up for a lifetime with knowledge on how to care for ones body.
Treating babies like they understand and learn from the first moment they breathe in the air inspires the interest in teaching them about the world from the very start and the best place to start is with their own body. Involving your child in his/her personal care starts a lovely communication that helps them engage in life and take initiative just as soon as they are able.
And so quality time and bonding may begin.
Recent study that compared allergic response in children to baby oil versus coconut oil clearly indicated that coconut oil is the safer choice. Rather than using mineral oil and adding synthetic nutrients, we opted for raw, natural, organic ingredients, cold pressed where possible to allow your baby’s skin to absorb only the best the nature has to offer. Since this is an all oil based formula, no anti-molding preservatives are necessary in it.
Why food grade?
If you have ever changed a toddler’s diaper, you know how busy those little bodies can be. They don’t stay still for a moment. Changing a diaper is often a very creative endeavor. The little busy fingers get into places they don’t belong and naturally they end up in the mouth. To avoid any unpleasant situations where you have to wrestle with your child over a little container full of toxic endocrine disruptors, anti-mold agents and preservatives, we have created a formula that will not only be non toxic for your child to swallow, it contains fats that are all beneficial even for consumption.
There are different grades of butters and oils that are made for cosmetic purposes or for consumption. Cosmetic grade might sound good and clean, but according to law up to 30% of debris including bacteria is allowed in cosmetic grade oils and butters. Food grade quality is a lot stricter. Butters marked as food grade are produced in a lot cleaner environment that has been approved by officials for food production and is cleaned regularly. We choose only fresh, cold pressed, raw ingredients that have not been tested on animals and come from reputable suppliers.
We believe that you should not put anything on your skin that you would not put in your mouth. Your skin absorbs everything you put on it and it ends up in your blood stream affecting your organ function.
A word about our packaging.
A lot of thought and care has been invested into our packaging. Keeping health of our babies as well as the health of our planet in mind we have very conscientiously selected the type of packaging that not only does not contain any toxins that could possibly leach into the butter, but is also most likely to be recycled by your city recycling plant.
Why not plastic? There are many containers that are marked and sold and most certainly are free of bisphenol-A, but there are plenty of other endocrine disrupting chemicals in plastics and that is why we shy away from this type of packaging. This is also the reason we have stayed away from lining the tin with any type of plastic or covering the product with a membrane, which may leach unwanted and unsafe chemicals into our formula.
All ingredients in Charlotte’s Bum Butter are natural, food grade and organic. We have designed it to nourish and protect your baby’s skin by creating a layer that moisturizes without clogging the pores and allows the skin to breathe.
Our special formula is whipped for better consistency; it spreads and melts on contact with the skin. A little will go a long way! The fats in Charlotte’s Bum Butter will protect your baby’s skin with just a little amount at each diaper change.
Our main ingredient is crude organic Cocoa Butter which has high content of saturated fatty acids. These are very similar to the type of fat that is under the skin of babies. As adults we loose this type of fat, that's why the appearance and feel of baby skin is so special. 40% of our formulas is made up of Cocoa Butter for this reason.
