Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

One (1). What is it?

It's an ointment made with natural oils such as fractionated coconut oil, tamanu and jojoba oils that you spray onto a baby's clean bum (after it's wiped clean!) to protect, soothe and nourish its delicate skin.  Our all-in-1 body & bum spray is a natural substitute for gooky diaper creams, baby lotions and oils.  Instead of having to buy at least 3 different products you just get the 1, our all-in-1 body & bum spray!

Two (2). How does it work? 

Made with natural oils such as coconut, tamanu and jojoba, these protect, nourish and soothe a baby's delicate skin.  The natural oils act as a protector by creating a barrier against additional moisture that can cause irritations and inflammation.  The rich level of antioxidants, anti fungal properties and natural minerals help nourish, soothe and moisturize the skin.
Check out our Benefits section for key ingredients and benefits.

Three (3). How do I use it?

Simple.  Just shake & spray!
Our all-in-1 body & bum spray is very versatile, given the natural oils and ingredients.  There are numerous uses.  Our most common uses are as follows:

bum spray (i.e. diaper cream substitute)

Change baby's diapers as you would normally do and wipe bum clean.  Now instead of using a diaper cream, just shake & spray our all-in-1 body & bum spray in baby's bum area.  Be sure to cover the bum 'crack' to ensure that any redness is soothed.  No need to use your fingers to apply, 1-3 sprays should do the trick.  Easy right?  Dads will especially luv this!  Get one for your daycare or nanny! Try it..you can thank us later.

baby massage / moisturizer (i.e. baby oil / baby lotion substitute)  

Shake & spray our all-in-1 body & bum spray onto your hands first to warm up and then gently massage baby by spreading onto body.  Be sure to sing their favourite lullabies and kiss their cute feet!  Your bond will only grow and you'll get a relaxed and happier baby.  We like to do this after bath time and before bed time, as it will increase the chance of getting a good night's sleep!

remove cradle cap (i.e. dry itchy scalp from birth)

Before or after bath time (depending on your preference) shake & spray our all-in-1 body & bum spray onto hands to warm up and then gently massage baby's scalp affected by cradle cap.  If you bathe your baby after, then you can wash off the excess flaky skin and then take a small amount of our body & bum spray and gently re-apply to affected areas.

soothes skin from bug bites (i.e. mosquitoes, bee/wasp stings, etc)

If your baby / toddler or yourself get the unfortunate bug bite, simply shake & spray our all-in-1 body & bum spray onto affected areas and gently pat onto skin.  The natural oils will help reduce inflammation and fight off bacteria due to the antimicrobial properties of some of the natural oils (i.e. tamanu and coconut).

perineum relief pre/postpartum

To help prepare for natural birth, you can shake & spray your body & bum spray onto perineum area.  In the postpartum stage, you can shake & spray onto perineum area to help soothe and heal area.  This will be helpful especially if you experience an episiotomy or tear and have stitches. 

harden your nails and moisturizes hands

Do you want stronger and thicker nails? Then shake and spray onto nails.  It also makes a great cuticle oil and hand moisturizer. 

The possibilities are endless...

Four (4) What is Fractionated Coconut Oil vs. Coconut Oil?

We use liquid fractionated coconut oil.  Regular coconut oil is a solid white creamy substance at room temperature and easily melts into liquid oil when you touch it.  In order to translate the benefits of coconut oil into a spray, we use liquid fractionated coconut oil. What is it? Simply it's virgin coconut oil that has been heated as part of processing, to separate certain chains of fatty acids into medium-chain triglycerides (i.e. MCT). This refines, clarifies, and deodorizes the oil and helps it stay liquid.  Our fractionated coconut oil meets the quality standards of the FDA, Health Canada, and the European Pharmacopoeia.
Which is better, Fractionated Coconut Oil or Coconut oil?  Ideally, the virgin coconut oil (i.e. coconut oil derived from mature coconut trees) is the best because it has a higher percentage of lauric acid!  However, our fractionated liquid coconut oil is still great and has a combination of capric / caprylic acid (i.e. the medium chain triglycerides) that are often found in goat's milk and helps fight off candida, infections and acne as it is anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial.
