Its soothing and protective properties make it a product specifically recommended for hydrating your baby’s skin during diaper changes. It will protect your baby’s skin against wetness and irritants that cause diaper rash, such as humidity or acidic urine and bowel movements. The ointment’s base (limewater) restores the skin’s natural appearance while the olive oil protects the skin from irritants. The addition of coconut to the original formula gently increases hydration to the skin, and offers anti-fungal and antioxidant qualities to the liniment.
Use a cotton ball or washcloth to apply the ointment to the skin when changing your baby's diaper. Reusable washcloths or reusable baby wipes, combined with the liniment, eliminate the need for disposable wipes. No need to rinse afterwards, as the remaining thin layer of liniment serves to protect the skin. Compatible with all diapers (although we have a preference for reusable, cloth diapers). Also helpful for cradle cap, washing children's faces, and any dry skin patches on your baby's body. Please note, due to the coconut, this formula is NOT hypoallergenic. Unscented. Shake well before using.

Leather and leatherette: clean, nourish and remove stains, helping to maintain leather and leatherette sofas, car seats and other furniture. Here’s how:
Pour a bit of ointment onto a clean rag. Rub the ointment into the leather, paying special attention to stains. - Don’t rub leatherette too hard, especially if dry, since it’s a coated fabric. Do not apply to suede (such as buffed or nubuck leather).
To remove oiliness after applying the ointment to leatherette furniture, wipe with a clean cloth dampened with warm water.
Wood furniture: rub the piece of furniture with the ointment. Let dry. Polish. The ointment will make the piece of furniture waterproof.
