Bepanthen knows that it can be tricky to know what’s best when caring for your baby’s skin. The skin on a baby’s bottom is soft, smooth and very sensitive. It’s also thinner than adults’ and has a higher pH level. It has to put up with difficult conditions, spending most of the day and night wrapped tightly in a hot, damp nappy and in regular contact with wee and poo.
What causes nappy rash?
Nappy rash is caused by a baby's delicate skin being in contact with the irritating chemicals in wee and poo. This is made worse by a tight nappy which both rubs and stops the air circulating.
That’s where Bepanthen can help. The breathable ointment creates a transparent barrier against the harmful effects of wee, poo and nappies, which helps protect the skin against these causes of nappy rash.
