Bepanthen Ointment

 

What is Bepanthen Ointment ?

Bepanthen Ointment, an oil-rich ointment base formulation, is a preferred solution for diaper rash as it offers better protection against nappy ( diaper ) wetness.

 

Bepanthen Ointment contains the active ingredient dexpanthenol. Dexpanthenol is converted in skin cells to pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid or vitamin B5 is known for its skin healing and repairing properties, and as such plays a part in both the formation and the regeneration of the skin.

 

Hence, Bepanthen Ointment has a dual action benefit helping you to protect and promote the natural healing of your baby's delicate skin, against nappy rash.
