1) Protecting the skin
To protect the skin against frosty and cold weather, and to prevent broken skin, the salve is lubricated on to the exposed area of the skin before you go out in the cool weather. You can add it to yours or your baby’s cheeks or hands before going outside, and it will protect them from getting dry.
The ointment is also really good to protect the baby bum that wears diapers. Wearing diapers with pee next to the skin the most of the time, will naturally make some baby bums react by getting diaper rashes. Although cloth diapers are already doing a really good job helping to prevent diaper rashes because they are more breathable than disposable diapers, a combination between the salve and cloth diapers used together will prevent diaper rashes very efficiently!
Lubricate the salve to completely clean and dry skin. The beeswax in the salve puts a protective layer on the skin that helps urine to stay away from directly contact with the skin.
2) Repairing damaged skin
WeeCare Lanolin Ointment – and especially the natural grease Lanolin – has a positive effect on the skin’s healing process. The lanolin ointment is very good for dry and cracked skin or for damaged skin, as it helps the healing process of the skin. The lanolin in the salve is very efficient in repairing damaged skin as red baby bums and diaper rashes! It is also very good for repairing cracked skin on dry hands or breastfeeding nipples, dry spots on elbows, feet etc. Simply apply the lanolin ointment to the skin to soothe and remedy a small wound, a skin scratch, a cuticle, dry areas on the skin, and irritated, red and possibly damaged skin.
The salve is especially suitable to use with babies and children, as it is made from 100% natural ingredients, and free from perfume, essential oils, parabens and preservatives in general.
