These are the ingredients in order: Castor oil, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter.

It's the lip balm from HH but it seems to nice and not waxy so I was wondering if it would make a good diaper cream stick.

I love it as a lip balm, but I have a couple extras that weren't my favorite flavors so I was thinking maybe they could be a good solution for my dd.

It's my understanding that petroleum and zinc oxide are the 2 things to watch out for that make creams not cloth safe. So I would say give it a try and just be extra aware of any repelling or other issues that may creep up.

Re: Is this CD safe?

I'll use almost anything with prefolds/flats, except for Desitin (b/c I am paranoid about a fish smell).
I think if you're not globbing it on in huge amounts (and you have cotton diapers) you could give it a try.

Re: Is this CD safe?

The only thing I am not sure of is the beeswax, but I believe it should be fine. Maybe google beeswax or look and some other oil based natural cloth diaper creams and see if they have it.

What lip balm, btw, that is a great list.
