Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream - 400g

Antiseptic healing cream for nappy rash, eczema bed sorea and many more.

Developed over 70 years ago, Sudocrem is the market leader in the nappy rash sector. Nappy rash can be a cause of unhappy, crying babies, with as many as one in four babies suffering from the condition at one time or another.

What Is Sudocrem®?

Sudocrem is a market leading product for treating nappy rash. Clinically proven, it helps to soothe, heal and protect your baby’s delicate skin from further irritation.

Sudocrem has a water-repellent base which forms a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants (urine and stools) coming into contact with the skin. In addition, the emollient effect of Sudocrem can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft.

Sudocrem can also be used for other skin conditions that require a soothing, protective antiseptic cream with additional healing, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Sudocrem contains a number of ingredients and properties, such as:

  • hypoallergenic lanolin, to help provide emollient properties
  • zinc oxide is an astringent which reduces the loss of tissue fluid
  • benzyl benzoate and benzyl cinnamate are amongst the ingredients of Peru Balsam, recognised for its healing properties
  • benzyl alcohol is a weak local anaesthetic which acts to ease localised pain and irritation. It also acts as a disinfectant/antibacterial agent and is responsible for protection against common bacterial contaminants.

How to use Sudocrem®

Sudocrem is a clinically proven treatment for nappy rash, which helps soothe, heal and protect your baby’s delicate skin.

So how does it work?

Firstly, Sudocrem is made up in a base with water-repellent properties which form a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants (urine and stools) coming into contact with the skin.

In addition, the emollient effect can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft.

Sudocrem can ease the pain and irritation of nappy rash, whilst other ingredients can help to heal the skin.

Sudocrem can be applied at every nappy change, but please remember to only apply a thin layer as a little Sudocrem goes a long, long way.

The general rule is to use a small amount and apply in a thin layer. Massage in small circular movements until the Sudocrem has disappeared leaving a translucent film. If this does not cover the affected area apply a little more. However, if the area stays white after application, too much has been applied
