Diaper rashes. Dreaded, irritating, itchy, bumpy, painful diaper rashes. Whether you keep your baby in the highest quality disposable diapers, or the most expensive hemp cloth diapers, diaper rashes are a reality for most parents at least a few times. Your arsenal for relieving baby of rash pain likely includes coconut oil, zinc creams, and baby powders.
We’ve all heard about the dangers of inhaling talc powder by now. Most baby powders sporting a natural label instead resort to cornstarch. There is nothing wrong with cornstarch really, except it is known to make some diaper rashes even worse depending on the cause of the irritation. Yeast, in particular, is aggravated by cornstarch since yeast feeds on sugar. Which is why cornstarch can also cause rash issues when it is in natural deodorants as well.
One great baby powder made with natural ingredients is the organic baby powder by Bee All Natural.
Bee All Natural is a line of body care products founded by Rachel Nonis in 2009. All products are made with certified organic, food grade ingredients and are free of parabens, petroleum, or perfumes.

There are two varieties available, the non-scented and the lavender scented. The lavender variety simple has lavender flower powder added.
This baby powder is not only safe for use on yeast rashes, but it is clean rinsing and cloth diaper friendly. It has even been tested and approved by Fuzzibunz, one of the leading cloth diaper companies in the market!
We love that it is safe, and especially that the ingredients are food grade. Heck, if you look at the list, they are technically edible, but I wouldn’t recommend eating your baby powder. since the ingredients are also the leading ingredients in many natural deodorant powders, You could even use a puff to apply to the underarms for some like protection from odor or chafing. don’t forget to apply some to Baby’s chubby thigh creases too.
