Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Kicks Some Rash!

While I was at BlogHer, I was invited to meet George Boudreaux, the creator of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, to find out more about how he started his business. As I approached the booth, it wasn’t hard to pick him out of the crowd. He had a booming voice filled with conviction as he talked to those who stopped by about his miracle product.

George BoudreauxGeorge was so friendly to everyone at BlogHer.

Although I don’t have babies in diapers anymore, I still have a soft spot in my heart for his product. You’ve heard of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, right? I first learned about it from friends when Cordy was an itty-bitty baby. Here’s a video that might help, if you’ve never heard of them:

(OK, it’s a little silly. But that helps you get over the fact that we’re talking about a diaper rash paste.)

Cordy had multiple sensitivities as a baby and toddler, which often led to a lot of diaper rashes. She was sensitive to foods, she was sensitive to certain wipes, to certain diapers, to air it seemed. This was one of the few products that did the job at soothing and healing her rashes, often within a day or two at most.

My first question for George was an easy one: why the name? You have to admit, it’s not the most poetic product name. Tell the average person that you need to buy some “Butt Paste” and they’ll either giggle like a kid (she said “butt” hehehe), or they might look at you like you grew a second head. Of course, if they’re parents, chances are they’ll nod in understanding and point you in the right direction.

George, a pharmacist, explained that the original name for the product came when someone walked into his store looking for his “butt paste.” He developed it because he didn’t feel that other diaper creams on the market worked as well as they should, so he relied on his extensive knowledge as a pharmacist – and as a dad – to create a better diaper cream. It wasn’t until folks in his town had spread the word about his soothing cream that others would talk about George Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and then come to him asking for some of it themselves. He also told me, quite frankly, the name is descriptive and to-the-point. It says exactly what it is and what it’s for. I couldn’t argue with him on that.

As word spread, he started to seek out sponsorship in events to get the name out about the product. He said the best moment was when he sponsored a NASCAR race car. Other cars were lined up with your average snack food, soda, motor oil and tool sponsors written across the back of the car, and then there was the Boudreaux’s Butt Paste car! I wonder if the announcers pointed it out?

George also told me about the praise he’s received over the years. Not just from young parents, but also those caring for older, bedridden adults. Sometimes just the comfort provided by healing (and avoiding) a skin rash or bed sores can make a person’s day so much better. As a mom, I can attest that a baby who isn’t grumpy from a sore bottom is far more enjoyable than the baby with a painful rash.

It was a lot of fun to meet George and learn more about the man behind the Butt Paste. After BlogHer, I received a nice gift basket from Boudreaux’s Butt Paste including a new tube of the Butt Paste (always good to have on hand!) as well as Boudreaux’s Baby Kisses – a moisturizer for lips and cheeks. I’ve never tried the lip and cheek moisturizer, but I can’t wait to try it for Mira when the weather turns colder and her cheeks are bright red from the winter wind.

  1. My 10 year old son laughs whenever he sees “butt paste”. He’s going through a potty humor phase, which may never end because my husband cracks up over it, too.

    Boudreaux butt paste definitely helped ease redness and rash when my kids were babies.

    My grandson picked up a staph infection from his daycare when he was around the age of two. Of course it chose to attack the most sensitive area on his little body. He was on multiple antibiotics by mouth and we also had an antibiotic ointment that we had to keep on the affected area. With that area being diaper covered it never go air, thus causing a horrifying rash with open sores and Bless … it was just horrible. If the staph infection wasn’t enough, all the medications threw on a super lovely case of diaper rash. I had always used Bordreaux Butt Paste for rashes in the past and thought to myself “What the heck … it can’t hurt to try … right?” So I would give him the oral medications to fight the internal stuff then I would cover him good with the prescribed ointment and then I threw on the added ‘bullet’ of Bordreaux Butt Paste … the one in the red tube … I call it the “Heavy Duty Stuff” … WOW!! from one diaper change to the next I could tell a difference in the healing of his bottom. Within about three days there was about an 80% improvement in his skin. I kept this routine going for about 10 days. By the time he finished all of his medicine, you couldn’t even tell he had experienced the horrible skin breakdown and rash he had been through. He suffered no one scare as a result and his skin was left totally unblemished. I know the antibiotics helped, but I owe his walking away from this unblemished solely on Boudreaux Butt Paste. The boys are six, four, and three now and I still keep Boudreaux around. I use it for everything, not just diaper rashes!

  4. Well, in the NICU where I work we see some pretty hellacious rashes on our tiny ones. Other preparations have been the go-to choices by the docs and NNPs until a few of us nurses?moms shared our experiences and preferences for Boudreaux’s Butt Paste when the docs and NNPs are scratching their heads wondering what can we do with these horrid, bleeding rashes when we have done everything…well, not everything. Over time we have gotten them to consider and prescribe Boudreaux’s Butt Paste for these rashes and they were amazed at the practically overnight improvement in these patients rashes and breakdowns. Oh and of course Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is the go-to product for my grandbaby Fallon’s sensitive little bottom. <3 Boudreaux's Butt Paste!

  24. Sarah Hirsch says:

    this was not around when my babies were in diapers but my friend used it and loved it

  25. I never tried it on my kids when they were younger. I’ve heard great things about the product. I thought it was a made up name the first time I heard people talk about “butt paste”. lol

  26. I actually used this on my daughter (which she would be mortified to know I was telling you) and it really did help.

  27. Wild Orchid says:

    I used it with my son, and it worked great! He didn’t have too many run-ins with diaper rash, but he did on occasion. I was glad to have this on hand.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I think the name says it all! It works great and helps put a seal over their little bottom!

  35. Boudreaux’s product is amazing. Just like you, I don’t have babies in diapers anymore. But I remember I’ve gotta have Boudreaux’s Butt Paste whenever I go when my babies were still young. I even recommend it to all the Moms that I know because it works! I bet I sounded like their sales rep or something. hahaha…that’s my Boudreaux’s story.

  40. Butt Paste is so good for chafing of all kinds. I used it myself when a hot summer mixed with too much hiking resulted in extreme chafing on my inner thighs. It really works.

  42. Cody Anderson says:

    I first discovered the magic of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste with my first daughter. She would get terrible diaper rash and I tried everything to help her, but I couldn’t cure it. It wasn’t until my aunt introduced me to the butt paste that my life changed. Since that special day, diaper rash has never been a problem.

  43. Stacey Burke says:

    We are past the diaper rash stage of kid~dom, but she still gets a rash now and then. I think this “butt paste” would work wonders on her!! I will now be looking for the lip cream as she tends to get chapped lips in the winter!!

  44. I have never tried this brand but have seen it in the stores before and found the name and packaging adorably funny! I think it would make a great, funny baby shower gift too! Plus it would be useful! I hope my entry can still count!

  52. My grandson had a horrible diaper rash as a result of an antibiotic he was taking for ear infection. Diapering was a nightmare. We started using Butt Paste and within 2 days his rash was almost 100% better. We don’t use anything else after that.

  53. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    Boudreaux’s Butt Paste cream has always worked great for us and soothed diaper rash many times

  55. Thomas Murphy says:

    My kids always got rashes and the only thing that really helped was Butt Paste.

  56. Thomas Murphy says:
  57. No kids. Haven’t used Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. The video is funny.
    Thanks for the contest.

  58. I adopted my son when he was out of the diaper phase so we never had a chance to use butt paste (He does find the name funny, however). But I will keep it in mind for a baby shower I am attending soon, it will make a great addition to the gift basket I’m putting together.

  59. This product is so good for rashes. I love it!

  60. great product! I used it all the time when my daughter was a baby
