La Petite Creme: An Alternative to Normal Wipes

Big thanks to La Petite Creme for this product to review


La Petite Creme Non-Rinse 2-in-1 Cleanser and Lotion is specifically designed for diaper care. Made with no harmful chemicals or ingredients, it can be safely used on newborns and babies of all ages. 


Based on an Original French recipe and proven throughout Europe, La Petite Creme is a unique product that works as a cleanser, a protective shield and a calming lotion all at once. Applied at every diaper change with a gentle cotton pad or a washcloth, La Petite Creme cleans out the diaper area while leaving a breathable protective film on the skin to protect against wetness and acidic waste. Its gentle ingredients calm skin redness, rashes and sensitivity of dry and atopic skin. La Petite Creme is made up of 45% high quality extra virgin olive oil & beeswax and is perfectly safe to use with both cloth and disposable diapers.

La Petite Creme is made up of 45% high quality extra virgin olive oil & beeswax and is perfectly safe to use with both cloth diapers and disposable diapers. With only six ingredients, it's ideal for sensitive skin children and it's 100% hypoallergenic, which is perfect for families that prefer a natural approach to their children's skin. 


I was a little thrown off by the fact that the creme is yellow, but you can see where it's been applied and where you've wiped. There's not real smell and it goes on smooth, really protecting my son's sensitive skin due to Eczema. 


I definitely prefer the washcloths vs the disposable wipes you can get from their website. The washcloths are a good size (9"x9") and made from 80% cotton/20% polyester. When it comes to big jobs, washcloths are the only way to go when ensuring everything is clean and good to go. They're decent size and thickness, allowing for a nice diaper change, but I do tend to grab for my store brand wipes at times when my son has really filled his diaper. 


When I'm on the go running errands, I pack the disposable wipes for ease of just throwing them away once I've used them. That does make it nice since we cloth diaper, and that means I can also keep the washcloths at home where they can be treated/washed quickly. 


You can purchase Starter Kits on the La Petite Creme website where you get 1 Everyday Bottle with Dispensing Pump (8 oz), Diaper Bag Tottle (2 oz Travel Size), and then depending on which kit you choose you'll get 5 reusable washcloths or 50 disposable cotton pads. Each kit retails for $23 a piece, and you can add on extra washcloths or disposable pads if you'd like. A pack of 10 washcloths like I received is only $7 on their website and then additional 50 count packs of disposable wipes are only $3.50 each.

This might actually convert me back to cloth wipes :) Looks like a really neat product.
