Unexpected Uses of La Petite Creme French Diapering Lotion (outside the diaper)

Parents across the country are raving about our organic diapering lotion as a replacement for baby wipes, diaper ointment and diaper cream. But did you know that our iconic yellow-capped bottle holds a lot of extra power outside of the diaper as well? 

Here are some of the best alternative uses of La Petite Creme organic French diapering lotion (submitted by our very own circle of Moms) and why you should always have a small travel size version in your purse: 

1. Makeup remover

Made with 45% organic olive oil, La Petite Creme lotion is an excellent way to gently remove waterproof mascara and any kind of makeup. Simply use one a large cotton pad or a cloth and clean your face off in no time.

2. Cradle caps

Cradle cap causes crusty or oily scaly patches on a baby's scalp. The condition isn't painful or itchy. But it can cause thick white or yellow scales that aren't easy to remove.” (Mayo Clinic) Unless of course you have added a tad of La Petite Creme lotion on your baby’s scalp to loosen the scales. Remember: never scratch cradle caps though. 

3. Red chicks

Baby's cheeks are particularly sensitive to temperature change and friction with clothing. A thin layer of lotion before going out will prevent the cold winds from irritating your little's one cheeks. Of course, it also applies to older siblings or adults with sensitive facial skin.

4. Red nose

Frequent nose blowing can create irritation which is very uncomfortable at any age. A nice coat of lotion will keep your nose moisturized between blows and make the next nose-blow a soft one. 

5. After shave cream 

Men and women alike can take advantage of La Petite Creme lotion as an after-shaving cream. Apply some lotion after shaving to reduce skin irritation due to the razor.

6. Dry skin

Anyone experiencing dry skin knows the discomfort that comes with it. Apply La Petite Creme lotion on your legs, arms or any area where your skin tends to dry and your clothes will glide right over it. Even synthetic fabric won’t bother you anymore.

7. Little girl’s potty training helper

It takes a while for little girls to learn how to properly wipe when potty training. One rule of thumb is: no wiping in the front, just patting is enough. Until this is understood, your little girl can experience red and itchy private parts. Our diapering lotion can soothe her and prevent further damage.

8. Itchy private parts

Girls and boys alike can experience occasional itchiness in their private parts. If the symptoms appear at bedtime (which is when it seems to always manifest in my house), apply some lotion in the itchy area. That should calm the fire enough for your little one to fall asleep and assess in the morning. Hint: it also works for adults for occasional discomfort down there.

9. Thermometer aid

Having a cold is no fun and if you add some fever to the sickness bundle, it's even less. If you or your little-one needs some regular temperature checks and you want accurate numbers using a rectal thermometer, our lotion is here to help! Applying a small amount of La Petite Creme lotion will serve as lubricant to take rectal temperature easily and safely.

10. Post-birth hemorrhoids

Whether they happen before, during or, after pregnancy, hemorrhoids are a pain in the b*** (that was an easy one!). Apply La Petite Creme diaper healing balm on a cotton pad and place it in your underwear overnight. You’ll note significant improvements in the morning.
