Why We Chose Our Ingredients

At La Petite Creme, we did a lot of research about babies bottom and their delicate skin to ensure that we sourced only the best ingredients to protect and take care of their little behind.

Trust us, we’ve been there. Scouring the web for organic baby products that are actually organic and contain no hidden nasties isn’t easy, we feel your pain. That’s why we created a baby product with a list of ingredients that you can trust - the search ends here mama!

Our diapering lotion and balm both contain certified organic and minimal ingredients so that you have one less toxic product to worry about.

Now, why did we choose our specific ingredients?

Because we’re mums too!

As French moms, we found it hard to get a diapering cleaning lotion for our babies that was as natural and organic as the lotions that moms use in France every day.

So, when faced with the sensitive skin of our own children, we decided to make our own!

What started as a kitchen experiment has now become an organic baby product trusted by moms around the world.

For easy cleaning

Our diapering lotion allows you to quickly clean your baby’s bottom with one cotton pad and one or two (depending on the mess!) pumps of lotion. It really is that easy.

To protect your baby’s bottom

The ingredients we chose are the perfect combination to protect efficiently your baby’s bottom from diaper rash, dryness, and the general irritation that can accompany wearing a diaper all day.

To avoid the harsh ingredients in alternative products

There is one thing that baby wipes are good for - informing us which products to avoid in diapering care. Ok, jokes aside (although we are kind of serious), we chose our ingredients to create a product that makes it easier for you to avoid the harsh ingredients in baby wipes and non-organic diapering lotions.


You might be surprised to learn that our diaper lotion only contains six ingredients.

That’s right. Six ingredients!

We reduced our lotion to ‘essentials only’ to make an ingredients list that’s completely transparent, kinder to your baby’s bottom, and easy for you to trust.

What ingredients did we choose?

We selected only the finest ingredients for your baby and their delicate squishy behind. So, without further ado, here’s the complete list:

  1. Organic olive oil, to leave a protective layer on the skin, moisturize, and prevent irritation
  2. Organic beeswax, to lock moisture in and soothe the irritation caused by a diaper rash
  3. Water, for a creamy consistency that makes our lotion easy to apply and wipe clean
  4. Organic glycerin, which is a natural moisturizer
  5. Vitamin E, that nourishes the skin and promotes healing
  6. Limestone, which is a natural disinfectant and works to counteract the acidity of pee and poop

Trust the experts

Our products are both USDA Certified Organic and EWG Verified because we have no problem sharing our manufacturing practices and ingredients with independent experts who can testify of their quality and compliance with the highest standards in the industry. 

For absolute transparency

We understand that it can be hard to trust all the information you read - especially when it comes to prioritizing your baby’s health! That’s why we encourage you to do a quick search of these ingredients for yourself. After all, there’s no better researcher than a mom on a baby-related mission!
