About CJ's BUTTer
Who are we?
We are the Australian & New Zealand distributor for the amazing range of CJ's BUTTer.
We are a family run business who love natural living and CJ's BUTTer of course!
In 2012 we started Baby Bare Cloth Nappies. We have always recommended CJ's as a great cloth nappy safe cream (as we loved using it ourselves) to our customers. So when the opportunity arose to take it on and add it into our range, we jumped at it!
We encourage you to read more about our products and how they can be used to benefit you and your family. They truly are multi use, and not just for babies!
You can find plenty more info about the individual products and their ingredients at www.justpustsomebutteronit.com.

The CJ's Story
We are often asked "Who is CJ?". CJ's BUTTer® is named after its creator, CJ S. Miller, who is one busy mumma! Though we often refer to her as Mastermind on Facebook, CJ is much more than the woman who invented CJ's BUTTer®. She is also a wife, an amazing mother to three sensitive skinned children, and 5 loveable dogs. She is also a disabled army veteran and a full time student. She is very passionate and in fact it was because she is such a caring and giving person that CJ's BUTTer® ever went beyond her own nappy bag.
As a busy stay at home mum, CJ never really sought to start a business. She just wanted to ease her baby’s nappy rash! CJ used cloth nappies all of her children and yes, at one point all 3 were in nappies simultaneously. This meant she needed something that was cloth nappy friendly that she could use both to treat and prevent nappy rash. It sounds simple enough, but all of the nappy rash creams that were available on the market had at least one of two problems. They wouldn’t wash out of cloth nappies, or were not effective – at least not on sensitive skin. This inspired CJ to solve the problem herself.
CJ began researching what natural oils and butters have historically worked well for skin irritations. She then set to work in her kitchen where she ended up creating what is now known as CJ's BUTTer®. It worked so well for her own children that when she would meet others either in person or online who were having similar issues she would give them some saying “Try this, it worked for us”. Not long after people began coming to CJ asking if she could send them some of the butt butter. When the cost of making and sending butter became too much for her and her family she started thinking, and realized that if she charged for it she could continue to help others by providing them with the butter that had now been deemed CJ's BUTTer® by parents in cloth nappy forums online.
In 2009, CJ launched a website, where she sold BUTTer® to cloth nappy-using mothers. In January 2010, everything changed. One of the mums posted pictures of her son’s eczema before using CJ's BUTTer®, another after one day of using the cream and another after the second day. The terrible eczema was completely cleared up after the second day. In the summer of 2010 retailers began requesting wholesale accounts which caused business to really take off.
As more people became aware of and began using CJ's BUTTer® it became a product line rather than a single product. CJ received requests for a variety of sizes, formulas such as yeast fighting, stick and spray on as well as a wide variety of scents. People also began reporting uses for BUTTer beyond use as a nappy cream which now boasts over 30 different uses to include battling eczema and psoriasis.
By late April of 2010 the business had grown to having more than 150 retailers in 5 countries and the line included at least a dozen different products most of which were available in over 30 scents as well as in multiple sizes. It was no wonder that production had gone from CJ's kitchen to taking over most of the S. Miller home. Along with her husband Mark, CJ opened CJ's Outlet and Boutique, a brick-and-mortar store that also had space for a production center which would mean the S. Miller family could have their house back!
