I have recently had the opportunity to try Bum Boosa Bamboo Wipes and Diaper Rash Cream. Both of my children have extremely sensitive skin and changing products isn’t something I usually do but after reading all about Bum Boosa I had to try it. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package of wipes the scent was so nice it contains lavender and sweet orange pure essential oils. Nothing like a little aromatherapy when your changing stinky diapers! The wipe is a nice thickness, its soft, seemed to be soothing to the skin and most important got the job done. I also used the diaper rash cream and this was very nice smelling as well, its thin and spreads very easily (a little goes a long way)…one of the things I hate about diaper rash creams is there strong smell this product brings a whole lot more pleasure to the diaper changing experience. My daughter was a little red and one application of the diaper rash cream and it was cleared up.
There are several pro’s about the Bum Boosa products but a few I find most important are that “Bamboo is a quintessential renewable and sustainable plant due to the fact that it grows back so quickly and naturally. Renewability refers to a plant that has a short regeneration period to full maturation, usually in stark contrast to the material they are replacing. Sustainability refers to resources being replenished at a fast enough rate at which they can be used for consumption.” They also participate in Upcyling as the packaging for the baby wipes is not biodegradable. “In an effort to be as environmentally responsible as possible, Bum Boosa reclaims our packaging post-use to divert it from landfills. A talented local artist hand-crafts new items after the packaging is sterilized. The packages are upcycled into new items such as shopping or diaper bags.” Now that I have children my outlook on life and our earth has changed. As a family, we have begun recycling and are vowing to become more green. These products are a step in the right direction!
