Is this safe for cd'ing?

I know that regular Bordreaux's butt paste is not safe for cding, but what about the natural stuff? Here's the ingredients:
zinc oxide 16%, aloe vera, beeswax, carnauba wax, castor oil, citric acid, hydrogenated Castor oil, peruvian balsam oil.

I love using cjbug's BUTTer, but I was looking for something I could buy in a store, also.

Thanks!

I would use it with a liner, just in case.

I know that there are lists out there that have "safe" creams listed but I would like to know what in or about them makes them safe so that I could evaluate on my own. Some safe ones still have zinc oxide... is it the %? What else makes them not safe?

No idea. I do know that I used Desitin creamy on DS when he was littler and didn't have any repelling issues. But he was small, so I wasn't using much, and he was in prefolds which are very easy to keep clean. There are definitely stains on the dipes that won't come out, though.

I would stay far away from anything with Castor oil in it though. That will make your dipes stink like dead fish!

Re: Is this safe for cd'ing?

I have it and it does not completely wash out of the fleece liners that I have.

It is white in color, so doesn't "stain", but I had some seep throught the liner on one diaper and I need to scrub it to get it out. Luckily it is only a little "line" of it.

It is a bit more "runny" that the regular Butt paste. I like it ok, but I wouldn't use it without a liner.

Zinc oxide is not recommended for cloth diapers, but if you use a small amount of it and always use a liner with it, it might be ok.
