Favorite CD safe rash cream

I have recently learned that lavender oil and tea tree oil has been linked to early onset puberty in girls and boys developing breast tissue. I just checked and my beloved Bum Bum Balm has lavender in it. What's your favorite brand, and can you check the ingredient list for those two things for me?

I think that was 1 study and has not been able to be reproduced. But I like weleda diaper cream for rashes and cj's butter for barrier cream.

Maybe it was only one study, but the entire reason I use CD is because I can't imagine that having the chemicals that are in disposables against the genitals for 2-3 yrs is safe. So, if there is a reason to believe the CD safe cream I'm using is harmful, I'm gonna stop using it.

Thank you for the suggestions. I see where CJs says it is CD safe, but do you know about Weleda?

Re: Favorite CD safe rash cream

I use and love Just for Babies - which is a zinc oxide cream (but a non-nano/non-micronized one w/ no petroleum or fish oils), but full of wonderful, natural ingredients. It doesn't happen to have the two ingredients you mentioned. You can decide whether or not you feel it is "cd safe". My stash is mostly flats and some pre-folds, so I don't have to be quite as nervous about it.

Here's a link to an EU study on TTO.

Relative info is on page 33. Of course, the decision is individual and choosing NOT to use oils definitely won't hurt.

Co oil as a barrier. Like, before naps / bed time for sure. If a rash broke out, which was uncommon, cjs butter ALL the way! The jar stuff. The spray stunk and the squeeze tube ... I never got to get it all out. I used it a lot as a moisturizer as well
