Many diaper creams use petrolatum as a base. Why? It’s a lot cheaper than lanolin. But there’s a catch. Petrolatum comes from crude oil—the same stuff that also gets turned into petroleum to fuel your car. Lanolin, on the other hand, is a natural oil found in sheep’s wool. Known for its long-lasting skin protecting properties, it has been used for centuries in creams and balms.

Petrolatum Free: Instead of petrolatum, a chemical derived from crude oil, Doctor O’s uses only all-natural, high-grade lanolin, which provides a gentle yet effective moisture barrier on babies’ delicate skin.
Overnight Protection: Many creams disappear shortly after application. Doctor O’s special formulation stays on babies’ bottoms even between diaper changes and provides superior overnight protection.
Take a look at the ingredients list on the next cream or lotion you buy. It’s not uncommon to find over 20 ingredients, which are difficult to pronounce or identify. Doctor O’s Diaper Balm contains just six natural ingredients, hand picked for their healing properties for your baby’s delicate skin.
For generations, moms have been using cornstarch on babies bottoms to keep things dry. Turns out your grandmother was onto something. While loose powder is now discouraged because of inhalation risks, cornstarch remains an effective ingredient at keeping wetness at bay.
SESAME SEED OIL
