Coconut Stick #Clothdiaper Rash Cream #Review and #Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to work with EcoSprout for a review of the "Coconut Stick": a new moisturizer and cloth diaper safe rash cream. The Coconut stick is made with 100% organic, unrefined virgin coconut oil, beeswax and Vitamin E. This product has all the benefits of coconut oil, plus the convenience of a stick dispenser.  The two-ounce Coconut Stick has many uses:


  • Bug bites and stings
  • Baby Acne
  • Cradle cap
  • Dry Skin
  • Diaper Rash
  • Wind Burn
  • Teething Pain
  • Yeast Rash
  • Nipple Cream
  • Chapped Lips
  • Stretch Marks
  • Itchy Pregnancy Belly
  • and more... 
 
I was most interested in using the Coconut Stick on my baby who has eczema.  Our 11-month-old has struggled with eczema for about eight months and coconut oil is one of our secret weapons against moderately severe eczema that affects his face and neck.  We like to apply coconut oil and apply a second layer of cream-style moisturizer.  This combination works well. Alone, the coconut oil is actually too drying, but it seems to heal his skin and prevent the weeping eczema (it also eliminates our need for steroid creams). If we are going out into cold and windy weather, I also apply a layer of lanolin to further protect his skin.  This routine was developed through a lot of trial and error and we found that it's what works best for our son. Since the routine is rather labor intensive, we notice baby's skin always gets worse at daycare where the staff is unable to give moisturizing adequate time and energy. 

When I started using the Coconut Stick, I immediately saw the benefit of this all-in-one product and the convenience of the packaging. It only took a few seconds to moisturize baby's face with the Coconut Stick.  Since the product was so easy to apply, I also found that I was moisturizing more frequently than I was able to do with our other routine.  The extra moisturizing really helped improve baby's skin. The beeswax also helped to seal in the moisture and eliminated the need for any additional creams and waxes.  The Coconut Stick did not make his skin dry like coconut oil alone does.  The product really agreed with baby's skin!

We also tried the Coconut Stick as a cloth diaper rash cream and had great results there too.  This product is designed to be used with cloth diapers and I had no concerns about using this product without a disposable liner.  There is no added fragrance in this Coconut Stick (it smells like coconut) and nothing that would stain and damage cloth diapers.  Our son does not struggle with diaper rash, but we always reach for coconut oil when he has any redness in his diaper area. The Coconut Stick is especially convenient for outings and daycare settings.

I really liked the Coconut Stick, and I can honestly say that I will be buying more of this product.  I loved the convenience and how it worked with our son's sensitive skin.  The stick worked really well for us and I estimate we'll probably go through about one stick a month (using this 5-6 times per-day).  I also thought the price was a good value: $9.95 for 2oz.  I would be interested in a jar version of this product for those who want to use this as a whole-body moisturizer.  The stick form is really convenient, but it would be great to have some additional product packaging options.
