Finally, The Rash Is Gone! August 15, 2007

Posted by Zara's Mama in notable, Zaria.

Nui Born Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Zaria has been having this milk rash on her cheeks since she was ~ 5months (as spotted by many readers). The Bud’s Super Soothing Rescue Lotion did help to reduce the rash, but not getting rid of it.

Everydayhealy told me she used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil for her Elizebeth, since it’s edible, she didn’t have to worry if Elizebeth ate it.

I went ahead and bought a bottle of Nui Born Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Just Life after reading her comment. The oil is expensive, RM120+ for 440ml, but if it works, I really don’t mind.

For 1 month, we’d been applying this on Zaria’s cheek as a ‘protection’ twice a day. The oil is very fragrant, and she likes it, always trying to lick my finger when I’m applying for her. In the night, we continue to apply the Bud’s Super Soothing Rescue Lotion on her after she’d gone to bed.

Using this, I can apply as often as I can, and not have to worry if she licked any off her cheeks. What more, it works! See, no more rash now!
No more Rash!

Other benefit of the oil :
~ It contains Lauric Acid (~50%) which is what you find in breast milk, so consuming it helps to boost your immunity, and it’s suitable for infant. (I didn’t let Zaria take it as a supplement though, since I’m still breast feeding her. Zara on the other hand, doesn’t like the taste, so she won’t drink it.)
~ It is readily absorbed into the skin and have immune enhancing and antimicrobial effects (no oily cheeks for Zaria even though we apply the oil neat to her face).
~ It stimulates metabolism, so more energy is burn which may help to reduce weight (I’m taking 2 teaspoons a day, but so far haven’t found myself to be lighter or leaner yet. *bummer*)
There are more benefits than just these. You can read from here or just google to check out the benefits.

Cayden’s rash went off without us applying anything on it..weird..but it came back after a week or so , then off again..Still no teeth yet. 😦

ZMM : How nice.. his skin can heal on its own. We are using the oil just as ‘protection’ since she’s sensitive to most cream.

2. ehon - August 15, 2007

SO CUTE!!! Awww.. Her smile with her teeth! Heart Melter this one.

ZMM : Heehee.. now you know why mummies ‘die’ in their kids’ ‘hands’.

3. sesame - August 15, 2007

Interesting! Didn’t know virgin coconut oil is so useful. And Zaria cheeks are certainly looking rosy and very kissable…

ZMM : And the best thing is.. it’s delicious.. She’s even more kissable when they (the cheeks) smells like ‘santan’.. YUM!

4. chooi peng - August 15, 2007

9. Lian - August 16, 2007

Thanks for sharing. Aiyooo, so cute with those cheeks.

ZMM : Thanks.. 😛

10. slavemom - August 16, 2007

Zaria’s so cute.. smiling and showing her 2 tiny teeth. Glad the oil works for her… smooth cheeks again. Yeah, expensive stuff may not necessarily work. But if it works, then worth every penny of it.

ZMM : As long as it works and not too expensive it’s ok.. This oil, if just use for application, will last very long.. but since I’m drinking it, it’s going real fast. 😦

11. laundryamah - August 16, 2007

May i know where to get this? 🙂

1C, Jalan Sungai Kelian
Tel : 8900-589
(I just happen to have the Just Life mag in front of me)
Btw, I saw cheaper ones in other organic shop. Oil is imported but packed locally, and it’s 1/2 price. I may want to try that the next time.

30. Malaika's mummy - August 19, 2007

Eh.. that cream is edible too. Wow… I think Malaika has outgrown that phase. The occasional outbreak is due to food allergic, I suspect.

31. Samm - August 21, 2007
