Homemade Zinc Oxide Diaper Cream

This cream is a natural way to create a barrier to help prevent acidic poop rash (yes I said poop). Here is the recipe to whip up some diaper cream of your own!

  • 1/4 cup natural shea butter
  • 1/4 raw coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure zinc oxide powder (non-nano and uncoated)


1. Using a double boiler (glass bowl over pot) melt the shea butter and coconut oil

2. Once the oil is melted, mix in the zinc oxide powder until completely dissolved

3. Transfer the oil to a mixing bowl and let it sit until the oils have thickened
4. Whip the mixture with a fork or hand mixer until desired consistency

5. Store in a jar with air tight lid (will keep for three months)
