'Everyday care and protection from the causes of nappy rash'
What is Bepanthen®?
Your baby's skin is very absorbent and sensitive, therefore it needs a safe, gentle product to care for and protect it. Bepanthen® is so gentle it can be used at every nappy change. Bepanthen can even be used on the highly sensitive skin of premature babies as it contains no fragrances, preservatives, colours or antiseptics.
How does it work?
Bepanthen® Ointment works in 2 ways to protect and care from the causes of nappy rash:
Bepanthen works by forming a transparent, breathable layer, helping to protect even the most delicate skins from irritants and rubbing. Bepanthen is so gentle it can be used at every nappy change to help the most sensitive of skins.
Bepanthen® contains Provitamin B5 which has hydrating and soothing effects on the skin and helps the skin repair its natural protective barrier. Bepanthen® is free from perfumes, preservatives and antiseptics.
