What they say: Bepanthen® works by forming a transparent, breathable layer, helping to protect even the most delicate skin from irritants and rubbing.
Bepanthen® is so gentle, it can be used at every nappy change to help the most sensitive of skins, including that of premature babies.
What we say: “My son (who is 12 weeks old) has suffered with nappy rash since day one so a chance to review Bepanthen was ideal. My daughter never really suffered with nappy rash and at any sign of redness a bit of cream would do the trick. After it worked for her I was confident that the same make would do the same job for my son – this wasn’t the case. After using 2 or 3 different products (not Bepanthen) it became clear nothing was working so we went for a trip to the doctors who prescribed some ointment with an antibiotic in. This cleared it up so I was able to start again with using a barrier cream – this was when I saw that Mojomums were giving the opportunity to review Bepanthen!
Touch wood, since his nappy rash has subsided and with using Bepanthen as a barrier cream, his bottom has been much happier. Not only has it worked to keep things at bay, I have found it easy to apply – none of this thick cream like Sudocrem and Metanium which takes a lot to get off your hands after applying it! I believe this is because it’s oil based rather than cream based like the others I’ve tried.
Yes it may be slightly more expensive than other barrier creams but a little goes a long way so it lasts a reasonable length of time. I’ll definitely continue to use this product with my son.”
Bepanthen products are available from many high street stores and chemists including Tesco.
