Frequently asked questions
LaLeMa is made with your own breast milk. Pumped or expressed as sterilely as possible, you fill your milk into the hygienic dispenser for optimal dosing.
You do not have to send us your breast milk. LaLeMa offers the easy way to use your breast milk care lotion immediately!
There are two options here: pump or expression. How exactly both work can be found under worth knowing.
There will be two sizes - for the test size you need about 7ml and for the original size about 21ml of breast milk. The result is 9ml or 30ml of LaLeMa care lotion with a particularly high proportion of 70% milk.
This was a major challenge in product development because we wanted to preserve the milk naturally without affecting its effectiveness.
Breast milk does not keep for 3 months, it is preserved by natural preservatives. We have used extra well-tolerated preservatives to make the milk durable.
It was essentially achieved through the use of two ingredients: Nipaguard and vitamin C. Nipaguard is effective even in very small quantities, especially against the fatty acids in breast milk and thus preserves very gently. Vitamin C is used as a co-preservative and primarily stops the formation of odours.
There are no restrictions on the use of your breast milk. Any milk is suitable, no matter what time of day or night you have it "left over" for the production of your care. Basically, the storage times recommended for feeding breast milk also apply here - you should mix LaLeMa at the latest after this has expired:
• Room temperature (16-25°C): 6 hours
• Fridge (4°C): max 3 days
• Freezer (-18°C): 6 months maximum
With 70%, LaLeMa has a particularly high proportion of breast milk in the resulting care lotion. According to the current state of science, this is the maximum proportion that enables natural preservation and improved consistency.
You can keep the LaLeMa base unmixed for at least 12 months.
As soon as you have mixed your individual breast milk care, we recommend using it up within 3 months. In principle, the lotion can also be used beyond the 3 months - here the motto applies: rely on your own senses, insofar as there are no changes in consistency or smell.
No! Another benefit is the uncomplicated storage at room temperature. Whether directly at the changing station or on the go in the changing bag - simply practical!
Your breast milk care will have the consistency of a lotion in the end state. You can use LaLeMa right after mixing it, but due to the natural substances in the base it may take some time before the final consistency is reached.
Breast milk is therefore many times as liquid as LaLeMa and thus enables local application and optimal dosing.
Our vegan base consists of a powder and a gel component. The powder is in the chamber integrated in the bottom of the dispenser. The gel in the visible part of the innovative dispenser. Only after adding the breast milk, by turning, do all the components come into contact and are optimally mixed with each other by shaking.
We have taken particular care when selecting the raw materials. True to the motto less is more, only the most necessary ingredients are in the LaLeMa basis. We also define these as ingredients and not as active substances, as this is the task that breast milk takes over. All ingredients are vegan (of plant origin) and mainly Ecocert and Cosmos compliant, thus meeting the highest standards. We do not use perfume/fragrances, microplastics and silicones.

None. We deliberately decided against fragrances or even perfume in the LaLeMa basis. All fragrances are potentially allergenic, because even essential oils (although they sound natural) are among the irritating substances in cosmetics and, in our opinion, do not belong on baby skin.
But there can be differences in the smell of breast milk, which can be explained quite simply by the diet. The degradation processes taking place in the body make the milk smell different depending on the food. This in turn means that LaLeMa can also smell more or less depending on the milk. So if you have a sensitive nose, you can influence the milk smell before mixing with an adapted diet. Many of our moms who have already tested LaLeMa love the scent of "newly born baby"!
The LaLeMa base contains only vegan ingredients. At this point, we leave it to all users how to classify the lotion after adding breast milk: decide yourself! 😊
They are NOT! Legal regulations oblige to indicate the individual components of the ingredients (INCI's) in this form. A handful of ingredients, as in the case of the LaLeMa basis, quickly become 19 substances:
Ingredients: Aqua, Sodium Polyphosphate, Tocopherol, Sorbitan Caprylate, Glucomannan or Amorphophallus, Konjac Root Extract, Caesalpinia Spinosa Gum, Ascorbic Acid, Gold, Potassium, Sorbate, Capryloyl/Caproyl Methyl Glucamide, Chondrus crispus Powder, Propanediol, Glutathione, Sorbitol, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol
As a simple problem solver, LaLeMa can revolutionize the care ritual for you and your baby. A bespoke natural product made in no time. Compared to pure milk, once you have mixed it, your care is always perfectly dosed, has a long shelf life and is available everywhere. This eliminates the need for constant pumping or stroking. In addition, the time-consuming production and impractical storage in the refrigerator of conventional breast milk DIY creams are a thing of the past. In addition to many other advantages, dads can now always use the natural miracle cure to care for their babies.
Last but not least, of course, there is the note that pure breast milk can still be used excellently, for example as a bath additive.
None of the ingredients in the LaLeMa base are known to aggravate or even cause skin reactions. But you can never rule this out completely! In particular, the sterile use of breast milk is therefore recommended.
Absolutely! Since we have decided on absolutely harmless ingredients, you can put your baby back on if necessary.
