Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment Information
What is Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment used for?
Because your baby’s skin is so sensitive, it needs to be protected from rubbing, irritation and other causes of nappy rash to keep it soft and supple. Bepanthen is used to treat and prevent dry, sore and chapped skin, helping your baby feel comfortable during nappy changes.
How does Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment work?
Bepanthen contains Provitamin B5, which not only aids the skin’s natural recovery process but also leaves it feeling soft, smooth and nourished. The gentle formulation works by sealing in the skin’s natural moisture, allowing the skin to recover without drying out.
Additionally, Bepanthen forms a transparent layer over your baby’s skin, protecting it from rubbing, irritation and other causes of nappy rash.
How do I use Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment?
When changing your baby’s nappy, apply a thin layer of Bepanthen ointment to their clean, dry bottom (especially before bedtimes). The non-sticky formula makes it easy for parents to apply while keeping your baby comfortable.
How often should I use Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment?
Use Bepanthen cream every time you change your baby’s nappy. Regular use will ensure their sensitive skin stays soft, smooth and protected from irritation caused by nappy rash.
Who is Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment suitable for?
Bepanthen is suitable for babies of all ages (including premature) as it contains no colourings, fragrances, preservatives or antiseptics.
Does Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment have any side effects?
Side effects are extremely rare, but if you notice any unusual skin reactions after applying Bepanthen nappy cream you should consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment warnings
Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment is for external use only.
Bepanthen 100g contains a nut-derived ingredient called Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil (sweet almond oil). Although the allergy-causing proteins of almond should be removed during the refining process, this cannot be guaranteed and therefore the product is not recommended for those with a nut allergy. We recommend you raise any concerns with your doctor or pharmacist before using the product.
