Product Review: Calazime Skin Protectant Paste

Best Diaper Cream

Best Diaper Cream

We’ve reviewed and recommended a lot of different diaper creams over the years: Burt’s Bees, Angle Baby Bottom Balm, Weleda Calendula Diaper Care, and more.

While I previously had a strong preference for Weleda, I was randomly turned on to a kind I never previously considered: Calazime Skin Protectant Paste. It’s not generally advertised under baby care, so it was not previously on my radar.

The first thing I noticed was how thick it is. It spreads easily and leaves a thick layer on the skin. Even after a full night of sleep, when most other creams have dissolved into oblivion, the Calazime is still there.

Burt’s Bees Diaper Cream is Better than Desitin

Diaper cream is something some babies never need.  Other babies, though, get it slathered on at every diaper change in order to avoid diaper rash.  Audrey was somewhere in the middle of these two extremes.  We used Burt’s Bees diaper cream and preferred it over other brands we tried.  I got a tube of Desitin for free and hated it.  Sure, it worked, but it also left terrible stains on our cloth diapers.  The Burt’s Bees cream seemed to go on more smoothly, soothe the skin, and protect from moisture without leaving residues on the diapers.  It also smells much better than petroleum-based Desitin.
