Vegan friendly salve for a new mama?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I know this forum tends to be food-centric.... but I could use some suggestions on some good non-food vegan products. All of the salves I've found to heal cracked nipples or babies rashy butts have had beeswax or lanolin in them, which I do not use. Anyone know of good vegan-friendly salves/balms I can stock up on while I wait on my LO's arrival? We're cd-ing the babe too, so the behind-balm would have to be cd-friendly. TIA!

I LOVE coconut oil! My lactation consultant recommended it when my nipples where cracked and it worked wonders for me. I also use it for dry skin, chapped lips, as a massage oil...and you can eat it.
I use this one: http://www.vitacost.com/Nutiva-Organ...onut-Oil-15-oz

For diaper rash I have found Merry Hampsters hemp salve the best: http://www.vitacost.com/Merry-Hempst...y-Herbal-Salve

The brand Earth Mama Angel baby makes a nipple butter and a diaper cream, among others. They are an AMAZING company, vegan, and then only company (last I heard) to have their entire product line receive a '0' on the Skindeep website. I highly, highly recommend them!

We've used shea butter and coconut oil for cracked skin. I might go more for the coconut oil on your nipples since I'm not as certain that you can eat shea butter and the baby may ingest some.

I found that steeped and cooled black tea bags left to rest on my bare nipples also helped when dd#1 was a baby.

I was also going to suggest the Earth Mama Angel Baby. I used their nipple butter and loved it.

Unfortunately, their nipplecream and diaper rash cream both have beeswax although they don't use lanolin.

I have a bath and body product addiction of sorts.... and this company will totally be feeding it! So much fun looking stuff to try on there... Thank you to all for the recommendations and links to this site!

Thirded the Earth Mama Angel Baby line! I have almost their entire baby/post partum line and I love it!

Also, you can use their diaper balm for lots more than bums! It's good for rashes, scrapes, cradle cap, and lots more! Just use a different container for the bum :P

This is all we use for my kids and me when we need some soothing. The nipple butter and bottom balm are both great!
