As all parents know, babies often get red and irritated skin around the nappy area. This can be caused by either a reaction to urea, or by yeast. The introduction of a barrier cream combined with an anti yeast ingredient is the best way to prevent this. In addition, it would help if the ingredients not only agreed with our skin but our insides too. We all know how much babies enjoy eating anything within arm’s reach. So we made MooGoo Nappy Balm.

MORE ON INGREDIENTS;
Aqua: When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.
Zinc Oxide: Zinc puts a barrier between wetness and acid in urine and your babies skin and giggles.
Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil: Sunflower Oil is rich in vitamins A, D, especially vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Sunflower oil has a light texture making it very comfortable on babies’ skin.
Cetearyl Alcohol (Plant Based Emulsifying Wax): Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.
Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil: Wonderfully healthy for the skin. Totally edible.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil: Jojoba Oil is one of the most moisturising skin care oils around and is one of our all-time favourite moisturising oils. It is light and sinks into the skin easily. Curiously, Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter): A rich moisturising butter.
Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil: This is exceptionally fine textured oil and has superb moisturising properties.
Evening primrose oil is exceptionally high in fatty acids, especially in gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and is one of our favourite moisturising oils.
Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E): We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic.
Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier): A lot of our customers are small. So small in fact that they have sometimes mistaken the creams their mums or dad’s put on the nappy change table for food. So we always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.
Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract: This extract is often used to care for sensitive skin.
Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract: Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin.
Allantoin: Allantoin is a skin conditioner that has been purified from comfrey. Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells.
Piroctone Olamine: Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating. It helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.
Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract: Personal care products need to stay pure from bacteria. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our “customers” prefer not to use them. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hop Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.
