Definition :

Liniment is an ancestral recipe from the south of France where it was used for baby care and in particular for seat care.

The oleo-limestone liniment is a natural product, based on olive oil (oleo) and calcium hydroxide (limestone). The latter being commonly called lime water.

This mixture has the consistency of semi-thick yellow milk.

Use :

The liniment cleans baby's bottom wonderfully and replaces toilet milk and other wet wipes. Just put a little bit of the mixture on a cotton pad or washable wipe. There is no need to rinse and this would be counterproductive, if its texture leaves a protective greasy film which isolates friction and moisture from the layers.

Some mothers use it as a make-up remover, to remove remnants of depilatory wax or sticking plaster, as a nourishing cream, etc.

It can also be used against cradle cap for infants or to wash the face of older children.

A bottle with a soap pump is very suitable for putting the necessary amount on the cotton. Lime water has cleaning and purifying properties and also neutralizes the acidity of urine.

Conservation :

Store away from light and heat. Shake before use if necessary.

Variants :

The liniment can be made with different oils in which flowers have macerated. For example, Calendula macerate (marigold flowers), a plant with soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, is ideal for irritations in the baby's seat or for the delicate skin of newborns.

Formats available on

  • 100ml, 250ml and 500ml in PE (plastic) bottles without pump.
  • 100ml or 250ml in aluminum bottles with pump.
  • 250ml refill more economical and ecological.

These different formats are available for the "traditional" liniment with olive oil and for the liniment with Calendula macerate.
