Bepanthen helps put nappy rash to bed

Baby changing nappy cream

At Bepanthen we understand that there is nothing more precious than your little one, and we are doing our best to help you protect your baby’s delicate skin. A newborn baby’s skin is 40% thinner and also softer than ours1. It has a higher pH level, which makes it more sensitive to irritants2. This means it requires extra care and protection on a daily basis.

How to protect your baby’s bum with Bepanthen

Almost every baby develops nappy rash at least once during the first 3 years of life, it is incredibly common!3 The best way to deal with it is to prevent your baby getting it in the first place.4

Bepanthen Ointment forms a moisturising, breathable layer, protecting even the most delicate skin of premature babies from the causes of nappy rash.
It cares for your baby’s bum with pro-vitamin B5, which gently aids the natural recovery of the skin whilst keeping it soft and moisturised.
