Since a baby wears diapers the whole day, its bottom is constantly exposed to bacteria-breeding moisture. This makes way for diaper rashes. Hence, a diaper rash cream is a requisite of newborn care to prevent and treat diaper rashes. It is recommended to use a diaper rash cream that’s dermatologically tested, built with Non-Nano Technology and formulated using certified organic ingredients.
Here are some ingredients that must be present in your baby’s diaper rash cream.
It treats wounds, inflammation, and irritation, preventing harmful bacteria from residing on the little one’s skin. Therefore, your baby’s diaper rash cream should have this active ingredient.
Enriched with triterpenoid, calendula oil reduces the pain in inflamed regions of your baby’s skin, soothes and treats redness, swelling, and red, and patchy skin.
It is primarily made up of saturated fatty acids like palmitic, stearic, oleic, and linoleic acid that form a protective layer on the skin which prevents further dampness from your baby’s pee/ poop that gives way to rashes.
Medical research also suggests that it wards off free radicals and reduces oxidative stress that drives the inflammatory process in conditions like eczema.
Known to reduce the skin redness, irritation, and inflammation caused by diaper rashes, it also forms a protective moisture barrier over the little one’s soft, delicate and sensitive skin.
So, the next time you buy your baby’s diaper rash cream, check the label to see whether it has these nourishing ingredients. Yes, #LabelPadhoMoms!
