Frequently Asked Questions

HOW IS DR. NICE’S MOISTURIZING GEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER VEGAN NIPPLE CARE PRODUCTS?

Trusted by lactation consultants worldwide, Dr. Nice’s Moisturizing Gel is the only all-natural, lanolin-free, vegan, water-based nipple care product that provides instant soothing, cooling relief. And because it was created by a pharmacist just for breastfeeding moms, you can trust that our four, all-natural ingredients are safe for both Mom and Baby.

HOW DO I USE DR. NICE’S MOISTURIZING GEL?

You can use our Moisturizing Gel two ways:

Body/room temperature 
to moisturize dry cracked, chapped nipples just like a nipple cream, butter or balm. 

Chilled 
to instantly soothe sore, cracked, chapped nipples. Just cool in a cup of ice or the refrigerator until our thick gel becomes a thin, cool liquid (about 10 minutes). When cool, dispense a small amount on your fingers and apply in a thin layer (a little goes a long way!) to affected area(s) as often as needed. There’s no need to wash off before breastfeeding. 

NOTE: 
When dry, Dr. Nice’s Moisturizing Gel should be clear. If it has a white appearance, that’s a sign that too much gel was used. Simply wash off and reapply a smaller amount in a thinner layer. 

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?

– Water, USP Grade
Poloxamer | Hydrogel. Mixture of plant-based flavonoid poloxamers & fatty esters
Gluconolactone & Sodium Benzoate | Preservative that prevents contamination. Broad-spectrum antimicrobial made from corn; ECOCERT, WholeFoods and the European REACH regulation compliant as a preservative in certified organic cosmetics

IS PEPPERMINT OIL SAFE FOR MY BABY?

Peppermint Oil is safe only when used in trace amounts to create peppermint water, like our water-based Dr. Nice’s Moisturizing Gel.

According to research findings published in
International Breastfeeding Journal *, peppermint water was found to be:
– Safe for babies
– Soothing and calming
– Antimicrobial (prevents the growth of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi)
– Effective in the prevention of nipple crack


*‘Effect of peppermint water on prevention of nipple cracks in lactating primiparous women: a randomized controlled trial’, International Breastfeeding Journal , 2007.

HOW MUCH PEPPERMINT OIL IS IN DR. NICE’S MOISTURIZING GEL?

For every 1,000 ml of USP grade water, we add 2 ml of peppermint oil. This represents 1/5 of a percent, an amount too minuscule to have an affect on your baby. 

YOUR PACKAGING LOOKS DIFFERENT. IS THIS THE SAME FORMULA?

YES! While we have a new company name – Dr. Nice’s Natural Products – and new, mess-free packaging that works when our gel is either cooled or at room temperature, Dr. Frank J. Nice’s patent-pending formula remains the same.
