Our Analysis

Made with 100% toxin-free, vegan (no beeswax) and mostly organic ingredients*, Angel Baby Bottom Balm by Earth Mama Angel Baby is more than just a diaper cream; it works well on first-aid irritations, like minor rashes, burns, cuts, scrapes, insect bites, and chicken pox. A protector against yeast and bacteria often present in diaper rash inflammations, Angel Baby Bottom Balm has been allergy- and clinically-tested to soothe itchy, rashy skin without causing further irritation.

Made in the USA, this healing herbal cream scored an impressive "0" on the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database, which means that no toxic ingredients were detected at all. (According to the EWG, "The American government doesn't require health studies or pre-market testing of the chemicals in personal care products, even though just about everyone is exposed to them.")

Because it's free of lanolin and zinc, which can leave behind a sticky residue, Angel Baby Bottom Balm is perfectly suited to use with cloth diapers. It's available in a 5-ounce jar as well.

We love how versatile and beneficial this balm is for the whole family, and especially how compatible it is with cloth diapers. For a soothing lotion to apply to the rest of baby's sensitive skin, we recommend the Earth Mama Angel Baby Lotion, also made of natural, organic, and non-toxic ingredients.
