When shopping for a gentle cleanser, detergent or moisturizer, remember that less is more. To avoid an adverse reaction or rash, avoid products with dyes, fragrance, phthalates and parabens.

It is safe to use on infants and children. Not only is it a healing moisturizer, it can prevent and clear up diaper rash and cradle cap.
