Motherlove Diaper Rash and Thrush Salve
A little about the company from their website:
As the first herbal personal care and supplement line specifically designed for pregnant and breastfeeding women, Motherlove has led the holistic body care industry since its conception in 1990. Our dedication to consistent quality means crafting only the finest, purest products, and using certified organic ingredients designed to nurture, soothe and heal women on their all-important journey of nurturing life. Each of our formulas are time proven and backed with integrity, wisdom and an intimate knowledge of herbal remedies.
Committed to our customers and setting a better-business example, Motherlove follows the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) set forth by the AHPA and the FDA. To ensure the utmost quality and consumer protection, we retain samples from every batch and have a computerized tracking system to follow any bottle sold. Our herbal supplements are made in an FDA registered, GMP certified facility. Before we place an order for an ingredient we receive a certificate of analysis and a sample. The certificate of analysis from the supplier shows test results for coliforms, salmonella, yeast & mold, bacterial plate count, heavy metals and pesticide residue. Herb samples are evaluated for color, smell and strength before approval. The finished product is then tested by an independent lab for bacteria, coliforms and heavy metals. Along with certificates of analysis for each ingredient and each lot number, we also have on file the certified organic, kosher and certified cruelty free documentation for our products.
As a major supporter of organic farming and sustainable practices, Motherlove strives to do not only do what's best for mothers and babies, but what's best for the environment as well. All our office supplies and packaging is made from recycled materials (as is all company literature), we manufacture using wind credits, and of course, none of our products are ever tested on animals and are completely cruelty free.
We also believe in supporting the social environment with our Nurturing Life Foundation, which promotes breastfeeding and supports mothers-in-need nationwide. Over 10% of all Motherlove Herbal Company's profits are donated to organizations that truly help nurture life, like The Maternal Wellness Center, Realities for Children and The Mountain Park Environmental Center.

We have been cloth diapering A. since she was 6 months old and I have to say: I love it. Once we started we never went back. Along the way we have had the occasional issue with diaper rash. Luckily, we received our tester samples at the same time A. needed it. She had had this rash for a few days and since we didn't have any cloth diaper friendly salve, we just let her crawl around and play on a plastic mat without a diaper on. This allowed her little butt to air out, if you will.
Once I received the samples, we began using it that night and continued using the salve at every diaper change for a few days. The rash was gone in less than 2 days!
Not only was the Salve extremely effective but it was also a natural product so I didn't feel strange for applying a product whose ingredients I could barely pronounce like I do with other diaper creams. And, 96% of the ingredients are certified organic!
The Motherlove Diaper Rash and Thrush Salve is cloth diaper friendly and does not stain. Its gentle on new babies skin and helps to heal rashes quickly.
