What Will You Find On Our Label? Peace Of Mind.
When you breastfeed your baby, you want the purest environment possible. Every ingredient in UpSpring Nipple Balm is organic, so you’ll have peace of mind … and happier nipples. (Yes. We said it.)
How to Use UpSpring Nipple Balm
Apply to dry, sore, or cracked nipples after each feeding. (Just do it. You’ll thank us later.) It can also be used for chapped lips, and on dry skin almost anywhere, including elbows, knees, and feet.
Generations Have Sworn By These Trusted Ingredients. But We Added The Science Anyway.
Every ingredient in UpSpring Organic Nipple Balm has been chosen for its beneficial effects on skin. This revolutionary formula features coconut oil, which has been clinically shown to be a safe and effective moisturizer.* (Of course, that’s no secret to residents of the tropics, who have been using it that way since time immemorial.) Coconut oil helps to soothe dry, itchy skin. Due to its molecular composition, coconut oil can penetrate skin more deeply than most other skin products. Because it’s rich in saturated fat, it helps keep skin hydrated by slowing down the loss of moisture. The saturated fat is mostly in the form of medium chain fatty acids such as lauric acid, which also helps to heal skin.
Also included in UpSpring Nipple Balm is beeswax, which helps soothe temporary inflammation.* Compounds in shea butter are shown to have the same benefit.* Sunflower seed oil is rich in vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant and is important for healthy skin.*
Calendula has a long history of use in folk healing traditions. It has traditionally been used topically to soothe and moisturize skin, and can help speed up repair of damaged skin.* Rosemary has an equally long history in the healing traditions of numerous cultures. And then there’s cocoa seed butter – better known as cocoa butter. (That’s what makes chocolate melt in your mouth, so it’s gotta be good for you, right?) Cocoa seed butter moisturizes your skin and helps heal damaged skin tissue.*
Every ingredient is all-natural, and has stood the test of time for safety and effectiveness. With one exception (beeswax), all the ingredients are plant-based and include coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, calendula flower extract, and rosemary seed extract.
No Lanolin, And No Artificial Anything
UpSpring Organic Nipple Balm is all natural and does not contain lanolin, petroleum, fragrance, paraben, gluten, or GMOs.
How quickly does Nipple Balm work?
If your nipples are already cracked and sore, use Nipple Balm after each feeding and within a few days you’ll be feeling like a new woman. Better yet, use it as soon as you begin experiencing any dryness or discomfort to avoid suffering unnecessarily.
Do I need to wash it off before feeding my baby? Is it safe for my baby to ingest?
No on one, yes on two. You do not need to wash it off before feeding. Every ingredient is 100% organic, and, with the exception of the beeswax, is plant-based. If you apply Nipple Balm after a feeding, most of it will be absorbed into your skin before the next feeding. But even if traces of it remain, or even if your baby is feeding frequently, it’s perfectly safe.
The Nipple Balm is too thick and I need to use a lot of pressure to apply it, which isn’t great for sore nipples. Do you have any suggestions?
Sometimes the balm can feel a little thicker because of a cooler room temperature. Try placing a small amount in the palm of your hand to warm it up before applying it. To avoid the problem, store it in a warmer room if possible.
Is it greasy?
Will it stain my clothes?
No. With a baby in the house, you have enough laundry to do.
Can I use Nipple Balm for dry skin other than my nipples?
Yes! Most moms see their bodies adjust to breastfeeding over time, so you might not need Wellmom Nipple Balm the entire time you breastfeed. If you have extra balm in the jar, use it for:
- Dry skin anywhere (your cuticles will love it!)
- Lip balm (go ahead, kiss your baby with that mouth)
- Drool rash ointment for baby
- Organic ointment for cuts and scrapes
- Moisturizer for cracked heels and calluses
- Protective ointment for runny noses so they don’t get chapped and red (your baby’s, your toddler’s, and yours, too)
