Bum Balm Blues – Diaper Rash Balm

Based on the product that started it all, Lowen’s Butter Balm.  Our EWG Verified™ Bum Balm Blues Diaper Rash Balm is just like the product we know and love in that it is an excellent barrier to irritants as well as being a very effective skin conditioner (meaning it is great for active rashes, chafing and more).  That said, sometimes you just need a little more dryness protection and that’s when Bum Balm Blues skines! (especially if you are introducing solids into your baby’s diet…)

Like our Butter Balm, Bum Balm Blues is completely free of petrochemicals, artificial preservatives, colorants or scenting agents.  Like the original Lowen’s Butter Balm, our non-staining Bum Balm Blues is an excellent barrier to irritants but also has 20% Zinc Oxide added in it to provide even more dryness protection.

The Lowen’s Butter Balm Story

This is the product that started it all…with the inspiration for it’s creation being our daughter Lowen and her persistent and severe diaper rash.  Originally called Lowen Butter Bum Balm, not only did it work extremely well on her rash but people began telling us how amazing it was when used for rash, dry cracked skin (see cuticles, heels, working hands, etc.), chafing, eczema and psoriasis.  We started marketing it toward all of these uses much to the delight (and relief) of our friends suffering with ongoing skin issues. We are always looking for ideas on how to re-purpose our products so please let us know if you have any new uses for us!

Directions: Apply liberally to a clean and dry diaper area as need.

Bum Balm Blues should be applied with every diaper change when a resistant rash is present and can also be used for overnight applications (or long road trips).  Again, if you are introducing new foods into your baby’s diet, not a bad idea to put our Bum Balm Blues in play to prevent a nasty rash down the line. For babies that are particularly prone to rash, using Bum Balm Blues as your regular diaper balm with every change can really help!

For external use only.

Avoid contact with eyes.

Consult a healthcare practitioner if symptoms worsen or last for more than 7 days

    AMAZING stuff! Cleared up my newborn’s diaper rash within hours! Only took 2 applications and she stopped crying during diaper changes. My newborn also pooped constantly while this product gave me a few hours in between each diaper change with absolutely ZERO consequences (ie. diaper rash) because of it’s protective properties. I have been telling everyone who will listen about this brand now.

  2. Jennifer NIcol

    This stuff is amazing, works wonders. Prevents and rapidly clears up diaper rash. My daughter started getting diaper rash from a young age, and balm balm blues has helped keep her and her little backside happy (and me too!). Love Lowen’s products and the thought that goes into making them!

    Hello Danielle.

    Thank you for your question.

    To answer it, we will need to make a number of assumptions.  In this case, we are assuming the "water based ingredient" you are referring to is the witch hazel distillate AKA "Hammamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water."  If this is correct, in looking at our ingredient list, your thought process is that our Bum Balm Blues ("Blues") contains a lot of water, and by virtue of this, requires broad spectrum preservation.  

    Your rationale for inquiring is certainly sound.

    However, Blues does not contain an abundance of this ingredient, so correspondingly, the water content is low.  As well, in the manufacturing process, heat is applied to melt the beeswax and coconut oil (all the ingredients are heated), and as part of this heating process, most, if not all, of the water evaporates, leaving the active ingredient.  

    Finally, to address your concerns about preservation, unrefined beeswax, zinc oxide, linolenic and linoleic acid (AKA omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids - found in abundance in the camelina and non-gmo canola oil we use) in addition to the medium chain triglycerides in the coconut oil in our formula all have antimicrobial activity.  Should you have interest in this primary literature supporting these claims, we are happy to share it with you.  Please email us at to learn more.  

    Thank you again for investing your time into some due diligence of our formula and let us know if you have any follow up questions.
