I'm frequently asked if I have anything specifically for eczema, dry patches of skin, protecting from scarring after scrapes and falls, or diaper rash! Since I created babycakes for my African children in the beginning, I have been playing around with a way to protect their skin from abrasions and rashes without the zinc (like in diaper rash creams) that turns them white and gets all over EVERYthing. What I've developed has a blend of special oils to protect against these types of skin irritations.
Like Babyface, the highly-prized oils in Ouchie Butter are very expensive - even wholesale.
Some of the oils and butters this product contains:
Calendula Oil - highly sought after for it's moisturizing and skin-healing properties. Calendula has long been recognized for use homoeopathic preparations in order to restore health. It is said to have antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties, and has been proven to aid in wound healing. It even helps heal burned skin!
Evening Primrose Oil - this oil is reputed to nourish the skin and hair, reduce signs of eczema and fights the effects of aging! It's an excellent oil for skin "issues" and seems to aid in heling after injuries.
Arnica Oil - Arnica has been used medicinally for centuries. It is reputed to have anti-inflammatory properties and can be used in liniment and ointment preparations for sprains, bruises, arthritis, insect bites, aches and pains.
Hemp Seed Oil - Hemp seed oil provides the four essential fatty acids beneficial to the skin: LA, GLA, LNA and SDA. (One of the highest EFA contents at 76%!) It is typically used in body care products made especially for dry, damaged skin (i.e. eczema, psoriasis and mastaligia).
Tucuma Butter - Native to the Brazilian Amazon, the delicious, edible fruit of the Tucuma palm tree is the source of this cold pressed butter. Tucuma Butter is unusually rich in lauric, myristic and oleic acids, and is considered to have excellent emollient and skin softening properties. High in vitamin A, the antioxidant properties of this ingredient lengthens shelf life naturally!
Mango Butter - Mango Butter is said to be rich in antioxidants and can be used to soften, smooth and moisturize rough dry skin. It has natural emollient properties, and is reputed to be useful for treating burns, stretch marks, scar reduction, wound healing and skin regeneration – smoothing of wrinkles. It is also reputed to have protective effect against UV radiation and can be used to treat sunburns.
Karanj Seed Oil- is anthelmintic, alexipharmic and useful in diseases of eye and skin. The oil has been used to treat tumors, wounds, ulcers, itching, enlargement of spleen and abdomen, urinary discharges. It also reputed to cure biliousness, piles, head pains, leucoderma, skin diseases and wounds.
Argan Oil - Grown in North Africa and mainly in Morocco, the Argan tree grows wild in semi-desert soil, and is extremely well adapted to drought. Argan Oil is produced from the seeds of this plant and is considered to be one of the rarest oils in the world due the small and very specific growing area. Argan Oil is rich in antioxidants and omega 6 fatty acids, and is believed to contain twice as much vitamin E as olive oil. It is said to contain saponins, which helps to soften the skin and restore the skin’s water lipid layer, thereby minimizing wrinkles. It can also be used to ease cases of acne and eczema helping the skin to maintain a youthful, glowing appearance.

Our family has had great results using Ouchie Butter for just a short period of time.
My 6 year old daughter had a huge scab on her elbow that was very painful.....using it for just 2 days....the scab is gone and there is now nice pink skin under it.
For me, I had a patch of dry crusted skin on my wrist that I have had there for years....3 days and it is almost gone.
Then there is my 17 year old daughter. This is where we were absolutely sold. She had some acne blemishes and scaring on her face....very raised and sore looking. She started using Ouchie Butter and almost immediately the redness was gone and now just a few days later it is almost all cleared up and her skin is glowing.
Thank you so much for making this product. We are very happy costumers. I'm glad I ordered 2 bottles right away. :)

My daughter recently got stitches...when her stitches dissolved we started using this on her scar. We have also been using it on her stubborn rash. She loves the way it feels so much she brings me the container twice a day and asks me to fix her owies. lol. I have had a stubborn eczema spot on my leg for a few weeks, and it is almost gone after just a few days of using this. Between my little one and myself, we are LOVING this product.

This blend meets a huge need and contains oils used for healing for centuries. Applying straight oils can be messy, expensive and down right inconvenient. As a frequent user of essential oils, I very excited about this product!
