There are so many mixed thoughts about Grandma El's some people love it and some people hate it. People claim it stains their cloth diapers, doesn't work, and causes build up in their cloth diapers. Other claim it works miracles on rashes and they have no cloth diaper problems. Due to all of the mix claims about this Diaper Ointment I had to try it out myself.
I have to say I am overall pleased with Grandma El's. It gets rid of any redness or irritation very quickly. Within a few diaper changes my little man's bum was red free! Now Grandma El's claims to be fragrant free but there is some type of odor to it. It's not horrible but its defiantly there. Some people can't stand it but I personal didn't mind it.
While testing the ointment, I visited their website and checked out the ingredients. The main active ingredients are for the most part great. It contains vitamin E, Balsam of Peru (healing agent), Salicylic Acid (Willow bark and Wintergreen and encourages new skin growth), Yellow Petrolatum and Insecticide -free Anhydrous Lanolin (healing agent).
I would recommend this product but if you are a cloth diaper user you may want to use a liner. Grandma El's does claim to be cloth diaper safe but it does contain Yellow Petrolatum and Insecticide-free Anhydrous Lanolin. These ingredients repel liquid, creating a barrier from wetness (Great for baby's booty!). They can build up in cloth diapers and create absorptancy issues with your diapers. Many people use Grandma El's with no problems but I just wanted to put a fair warning for all you cloth diaper users. If you use disposables you don't have to worry about this and I think you will love this product.
