The Best Vegan Diaper Creams Around

by | January 18, 2018

One thing vegan parents might overlook when they have a new baby is where to get vegan diaper creams.

Unfortunately, so many of them are made using animal products, as is the case with most commercial products. Fortunately, we have scoured the internet and found some of the best diaper creams that are 100% vegan, cruelty-free and sure to leave your little one comfortable.

Some of the non-vegan ingredients that may be in common brands or diaper cream include:

  • Beeswax
  • Lanolin (derived from sheep wool)
  • Cod liver oil
  • Panthenol (a form of vitamin B5 often derived from animal sources)


Vegan Diaper Creams 

Natures Paradise She Butter Relief Cream

This thick cream has only seven ingredients with the main one being shea butter. It’s a soothing, moisturizing formula which also works wonders for eczema and cradle cap too.

Seventh Generation Coconut Care Diaper Cream

Seventh Generation doesn’t test on animals, although it is owned by Unilever which may be a controversial topic for some parents as they have acknowledged the use of animal testing for certain ingredients. However, this brand of vegan diaper creams uses cruelty-free ingredients such as pure coconut oil and zinc to protect your baby’s delicate skin form rashes.

Baby Miracles Diaper Rash Ointment

This ointment is made from a blend of organic herbs that soothe baby’s skin and aid healing. It’s made with ingredients such as organic shea butter, aloe, safflower, coconut, and turmeric. You can purchase it directly from their website or on Amazon.

Maty’s All Natural Baby Ointment

This diaper ointment is made with olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and contains vitamin E which helps to soothe and heal baby’s delicate skin. It also works well for eczema and dry winter skin. Although this particular product is vegan, some of the other Maty’s products do contain honey, so be careful to read the ingredients before you buy. It can be bought directly from their website or through Amazon.

    Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm was recently rebranded to Earth Mama Organic Diaper Balm, and it now includes beeswax. Glad to find this list and will look into the other options mentioned. Thanks Aoife!
